    despite loving this show, I really just do not like Cathy ? I kept thinking I'd like her more as the seasons went on but she just got more and more annoying. I feel like she would be a selfish, self-important person, even without having cancer. Great acting from all the cast tho.
  • Thank you

    As a terminal patient, I want to say thank you for both myself and my family. This show helped my family to understand a little bit better and gave me the courage to do and say the things I only thought about. Thank you. Debra
  • Beautiful show. A tasty cake for a hungry viewer that appreciates good TV.

    Showtime still does it. It almost never lets me down with its new shows. I have not seen such a good pilot episode since Pushing Daisies in late 2007. This show has everything - comedy, dark humor, sadness, drama, great characters, amazing writers and even more amazing cast. Cathy is diagnosed with a dangerous melanoma and that changes her life. She says thing she would have never said before. Like the F word in church. She deals with her disease and refuses to announce it to her family. Her cranky neighbor Marlene helps her a little. Cathy's brother is a funny homeless man, her husband is kinda perv and son is just that "I don't get it" teenage jerk. I keep looking forward to seeing the 2nd season which premieres in less than a week! Yay!moreless

    Emmys 2013: Who Should Be Nominated in the Miniseries/TV Movie Categories? And Who Will Be?

    Can American Horror Story grab even more nominations than last year, or will other minis like Top of the Lake, Political Animals, and The Bible cut into its hold? And are they all just lining up to get bulldozed by Behind the Candelabra?

    The Emmy Nominations Ballots Are Out: Let's Take a Look at Them! (2013 Edition)

    We can better understand the Emmy nominations and eventual winners by looking at the nominations ballots, which the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences releases publicly. At the very least, they can be good for a laugh.
