  • Sad but perfect

    This show is killing me! Every new episode is better than the previous one, Laura Linney is simply amazing playing her character, and the supporting actors are well chosen and they fit perfectly in their roles. The story is both funny and tragic. Funny because the situation is presented like that, even if in the reality of things is the opposite. For the whole episode the critic condition of a cancer patient is faced as one of the many things that could happen in your life and is showed almost as a normal disease. The person that you are and the person that you could be meet on the screen, and (no doubts about that) you like the person you could be way more than the other one. But in the end, the very last minutes of the episode, you come back to reality again and an endless sadness and desperation grow inside you. Like in this episode: a day of fun and crazy shopping, almost a perfect happy day, but then... Cathy leaves the car as a present for her son.

    Excellent written show, full of feelings and thoughts. When you've done watching an episode, you just stay still, you hold your breath and you realize there are so many things you wish you could do.moreless
