The Big C
A comedy about a suburban, fortyish woman teacher coming to terms with a diagnosis of terminal cancer in her own way? Put aside any preconceptions and savour each half-hour long, perfectly polished and cut gem on Channel 4. It is brilliantly funny from start to finish of every episode. Starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt and supported by a company of equally talented actors with scripts expertly crafted by geniuses, it is my gold standard for television quality this year. If you enjoyed the excellent Six Feet Under this is for you.
It is the best medicine for me.
