The Big C Hereafter-Spoilers to Date

Quality of Life OAD 4/29/13

Anyone watching? I thought an all-season (or limited season) thread since no thread yet...

I LOVE Andrea-mentioning her roomie's herpes med cracked me up! I hope she does move back in. She can be "Mr J's" assistant again, and they can get rid of that perky blond-I don't care for her one bit.

So Dr Perfect has colon cancer-interesting! Maybe Cathy can teach him to be more compassionate. That will be a cool subplot.

As always, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Sean-he and Cathy bouncing in the bouncy castle was so sweet. And ever the annoying brother, he was laughing at her incontinence. But it wouldn't be "him" if he didn't. Deep down, Cathy knows it was with love. The sight of them riding that scooter in the mall! LOLZ!

I did tear up at the last scene with Cathy and Adam. Setting off the fireworks, her telling him/asking him if it was OK to give up chemo...Laura Linney is such a great actress. And the kid who plays her son is good too.

Well-anyone else watching???

Yes, watching. Yes, loved it.

After all these seasons, I feel like I know these people like family.

Marlene & Thomas.

Yea I enjoy the show as well but it was a little tough watching it on Monday since on that very day my dermatologist excised a mole on my forearm that could be melanoma albeit small. Biopsy results still pending.

ok, i rarely ever get emotional at the movies, and it's even less probable watching tv (it's maybe happened twice). that said, even i got a little misty when they were talking about cathy stopping chemo.

i've been a big laura linney fan since the tales trilogy, and loved her in kinsey. she can play drama as effortlessly as comedy, a rare talent.

i'm disappointed there are only three episodes left, i'll miss this show.

I set it up as soon as I noticed.

My wife and I love this show. I'm sorry to see it go.

I posted about the show name change in the Season Pass forum. As somebody here once advised me (good advice!), it's a good idea to subscribe to that forum for SP updates and changes.

Anyhoo, I just watched the first episode last night and I think they have really stepped up. I have enjoyed the show since the beginning, but it seemed to droop a bit. This first episode of S04 was really good.

I also loved seeing Marlene again. Seeing Cathy's doctor (Alan Alda) in the chair was a jolt. Good writing there!

This last season will be four one-hour episodes.

Laura Linney is wonderful. She is perfect in this role. I have a feeling a lot of tears are coming.

But we already did the 'show my son his future presents' didn't we? I don't quite understand why they showed it again.

The decision to stop chemo is a toughie, one that I'd guess all chemo patients struggle with.

He didn't open the presents. I think she changed her mind and decided to let him open them early.

I'm a little fuzzy on exactly how much of the last episode of last season was a hallucination. It's just the part on the boat with Angel but I'm forgetting how much that was in terms of screen time. I think it was a lot.

Paul is going to marry the assistant with the gluten allergy.

I don't think I'm going to like the new therapist Dr. Exposition.

Only three more of these, right?

You Can't Take it With You OAD 5/6/13

Glad Amber is "away on vacation"-maybe she won't be back!

Cathy's decline made me tear up-again-this show (and Laura Linney's acting) gets me every time...

So sad..she's lost her wedding dress, her Hermes (albeit to her son), maybe her husband....feeling in her leg...and now her memory....and there are 2 eps left...good Lord, I can't take it!

On a lighter note--I LOVE Isaac Mizrahi!

Yea - Melanoma In Situ - AKA Stage 0. Just some fun surgery.

The hard part is the poker faced doctors and waiting 10 days.

Anybody else experience the joy.
