The whole concept of finding a story about cancer entertaining seems unlikely or bizare, BUT this is quality and great. Terrific story lines, incredible acting and just a true heart warming and pacy series. Really enjoyable

We ordered this having rated the first to years as '4' quality, but are bitterly disapointed with year 3.

It looks and sounds like there is a completely new set of 'ideas' people and scriptwriters. Given that Laura Linney is clearly in charge of the show we can only think she gave in to pressure to make it more 'cutting edge'? That basically means that the 'F' word is used and used and used again. The episode with Susan Sarandon is particularly bad. The plots involving the younger characters are straight out of 'Beverley Hills 201?' what ever it was...

We are pleased it's ending, but should have noted the comments of another reviewer before buying.

just as great as the other two seasons, if not better than the others.
its just a great story all the things cathy is doing and experiencing are amazing.
susan Sarandon in this series is great. I have always liked her anyway, but she plays a great part.
this one will make you laugh, smile and maybe shed a tear.
each episode was fantastic, great new scenery and a smooth transition in the different paths the main characters are taking.
I would recommend this series. it is fab

Fantastic series with Laura Linney and company. Totally loved the whole 4 series, even though it's about cancer its funny, warm,sad and enjoyable. Wish it could go on forever! There is so little on tv that I like, that this outstanding programme is the exception, so buy the Dvd to watch over and over, like me! Especially loved the old neighbour Marlene, played by Phyllis Sommerville who was very funny and endearing to watch.

Loved series 1, enjoyed series 2 ... series 3 I found boring & uneventful until the halfway point when it once again picked up and kept me watching. Is it the last in the series? I think it's time to leave the audience to come up with their own ending and move on! Too much of a good thing stops being good!

The Big C has gone-off, big time. The first two seasons were great, but third-strike and they're out! Too much swearing, too many sexual statements, lousy acting, and just not funny anymore. I honestly don't care if they make a fourth season, or if Cathy survives. In my mind the Big C has already died.

I really liked this series as it is very true to life and very we'll acted throughout. It was funny and very sad but also uplifting at times. All the characters are great, especially her brother and her son.i would definitely recommend this series as it tackles a great subject and deals with it very we'll and also talk about a lot of other interesting stuff such as religion faith life after death etc.... But leave it open for you to make up your mind

The Big C is a bold concept, and the brilliant Laura Linney leads an excellent cast in this moving and oddly amusing show. Season three, however, is a real let-down. Not in terms of the acting, but the rather dire plot lines.

There is plenty to fill seasons 1 and 2, with her refusing to share her diagnosis and any chemotherapy in 1, then sharing her diagnosis and getting treatment in 2. Plenty of plot lines that follow the basic theme and make perfect sense.

Season 3, which could be subtitled "In Remission", sees her returning to living a "normal" life after her treatments appear to have worked. What causes the problems here is that the stuff she does is just, well, plain silly. And as for her son joining a religious sect (I don't know of many Christian groups who behave like those in the show - their solution to "saving yourself until you are married" is really bizarre), it just doesn't ring true - especially the way that Adam treats the stuff he found in the self-storage unit at the end of season 1. I can see why Cathy would wonder about having another baby, but the plot line with Susan Sarandon (who plays the role very well) is dire.

Season 4 starts in such a way that you could easily slip straight from the finale of season 2 to the start of season 4 without any real bother. I almost wish they had planned it to be shown that way.
