  • The show is less profound and novel than it seems to think it is. But the performances are strong enough that I want to stick around for Cathy Jamison's final journey, even if the path feels particularly well-trod. Show More

  • Linney and company are masterful (Basso is a revelation); the final episode's writing is solid. Show More

  • With this season's allotment of episodes at a premium (10, down from the previous seasons' 13), it's a shame The Big C doesn't make the most of each one of them. Show More
