Laura Linney stars in her Golden Globe®-winning role as Cathy Jamison, a 42-year-old schoolteacher who has always played by the rules. That is, until she receives a life-changing diagnosis. But instead of giving up, Cathy decides to live it up! Nothing and no one is safe, including her self-absorbed family, her cantankerous neighbor, and her smart-ass students. Oliver Platt (TV’s “Huff”) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) shine in this talented ensemble. Brutally honest, unapologetically funny and perfectly profound, THE BIG C is a surprisingly different comedy that reminds us that life is always worth living on our own terms. 1. Pilot - A diagnosis of terminal cancer inspires Cathy to live life to the fullest, free and uninhibited, for as long as she can. A pool in her backyard is at the top of her to-do list. 2. Summertime - After Dr. Todd tells Cathy just how little time she has left, she insists that her son Adam stay home with her instead of attending summer soccer camp. 3. There’s n

I saw the whole series in the States and was hooked from the first pilot episode. The series tells the story of a woman fighting to come to terms with grade four cancer by intially keeping it to her self and tries to live out her dreams and aspirations before she dies. Laura Linney plays this role superbly with emotion and comedy and with Liam Neeson making a guest appearance in episode twelve it is well worth watching. I for one will buy the video when released

I've been watching The Big C since the pilot episode a few months ago and i've been hooked ever since. Laura Linney plays a fantastic part as Cathy and is equally matched with such a brilliant cast. I can't remember the last time i was so engrossed in a comedy series as i am with this one, it has made me both laugh and cry many times. I'm so glad we were able to get it over here in the UK, roll on series 2 i say, absolutely brilliant!

I love this series which has been showing on More 4. Laura Linney is great as the mum/wife who's been put uptight and put upon all her life and wants to have one last chance at Life. If you're looking for something fresh and different this series is it. Watch out for the gorgeous Idris Elba and a great theme song (Game called life by Leftover Cuties).

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kelvin Sharman on 5 May 2011
Format: DVD
I've just watched the last of these through a flood of tears. I lost my wife to cancer fairly recently and this has obvious connections. Not the depressing ones, more the black humour that develops during the course of the illness. I recommended it to a friend whose wife had also recently died and we both thought it is an amazing series. I loved it and can totally recommend it to anyone who has the misfortune to be touched by this dreadful disease. It's not for the faint-hearted though. There is a lot of the F word and (ironically!) the C word. But the outstanding aspect of the whole show is the way it swings from humour to pathos and back again.

Incidentally, I read that Laura Linney lost her Father to cancer a mere 6 months before filming this series. So, she definitely got the t-shirt!

There is no doubt - buy it!

I also have been watching this on More 4 and was absolutely hooked, holds resonance for me too as i have just been diagnosed with stage 4 myself in the much the same position as her character.....well the! same. However it isn't obviously so simple to follow her path but the emotions and the reactions to the illness i could relate to......if you haven't seen it do.

If I could work out why it is that some tv series grip you instantly, I'd be very rich. The Big C has just one 'name' (the superb Laura Linney) but the rest of the cast instantly fitted their roles, and we were engrossed.

It is SO good we had to ration ourselves to one episode a day, but the DVD is also full of interviews/ extras so that helped! (In contrast Season 3 of 'Nurse Jackie' has NO extras on the DVD...)

The totally unpredictable plot turns, shock and laughter, even tears is not something that be easily achieved by a 30 min episode, but THIS show does just that.

I cannot recommend it highly enough; it is 'up there' as regards quality/durabilty, with '6 Feet Under', and 'Sopranos', but achieves it more easily than they did.

The writer, and Laura Linney, REALLY know their stuff. I think we will probably watch all series 1 again SOON as we wait for series 2.

THANK YOU!

The Big C is by far one of the most underrated series of 2011. I've just finished watching it on more 4, wish there were more great programmes like this. I would highly recommend it.

Format: DVD
I - like others, have just fiinished watching this on more 4(after my other weekly hit of brothers and sisters). This is an amazing series - engaging from episode 1. The characters are great - probably a combination of great casting and writing.
It'll make you belly-laugh out loud, and believe me it'll make you weep like a baby. My husband got into it half way through - and even he had tears in his eyes. (Dont let that put you off - it is worth the "pain". ) Its difficult to review it without spoiling it.

It'll be the best 390 minutes of TV you watch this year. I can't wait for series 2.
