The writing, directing, acting... everything in this show is absolutely superb!!!
I keep looking for a week spot in the show, but I seriously can't find one. Every episode is just that good.
They have really managed to turn a serious condition, such as cancer, into a quite humorous show, without making it too goofy or too out there for people not to get invested in the story or the characters.
I really hope that people aren't too damaged by the reality-TV crap that they miss out on a high quality show.
If Laura Linney and Phyllis Somerville, not to mention the show itself, don't get nominated (at least!!!) for Emmys, the entire award loses all credability!!!
