[ # ] The Big C is something to care, clap and cheer about!!!
August 16th, 2010 under Showtime

The Big C premieres on Showtime tonight at 10p and you are not going to want to miss this series that is something to clap about. Laura Linney plays a suburban mom and teacher who finds out she has stage 4 cancer and opts not to get treatment. She handles it by not telling anyone including her husband who she separates from when she hears the news, her teenage son and her homeless brother. Instead she keeps her diagnosis to herself, and she finds the strength to no longer give a sh!t what anybody thinks about her and tells people exactly what she thinks about them. That includes her rebellious son, an overweight student and her miserable neighbor. Those interactions are so brilliantly delivered by Linney that I can’t think of anyone else executing them as well as her. Gaboiurey Sidibe is great as an overweight student that Linney finds an interesting way to get her to lose weight. The two will form a bond that will have you laughing and also touching your heart. As unlikable as Phyllis Somerville tries to be as the mean old neighbor, you can’t help but like her. Oliver Platt is sweet as Linney’s estranged husband. Reid Scott is awwwdorable as her doctor and you will totally want him to check out your boobs, but that comes in a later episode. So you are not going to want to miss that and many of the other great moments on The Big C every Monday at 10:30p on Showtime.
The Big C will quickly become your latest addiction just like pot! Well that is my way of segueing into the fact that Weeds is back on Showtime tonight at 10p and picks up right where it left off. What will Nancy and Shane do now that Pilar is left floating in the pool after getting hit in the head with a croquet mallet? Tonight’s episode deals with the consequences and an ending you will never see coming and will change everything up!
