RENE RECOMMENDS: THE BIG C

Cancer Is Funny… sort of!

Leave it to the cable networks to really push the envelope in a way the others only wish they could.

Reminiscent of HBO’s fantastic series, Six Feet Under, Showtime’s new comedy The Big C highlights the range and depth of award winning actress Laura Linney – and is my Must See TV Show of the moment…

Linney plays Cathy, who has followed the rules her whole life – until she receives a cancer diagnosis and has to come to grips with the fact that the disease is going to kill her. That’s all the permission she needs to start living life unapologetically, including saying what she REALLY feels.

The Big C seems less about dying and more about living.  You know, doing all the things you’ve always WANTED to do but didn’t because they were inappropriate for someone your age, or because you didn’t have the money, or you were too worried about what other people would think.

I love how freeing the thought of that is and wonder if it takes a drastic diagnosis before we really let loose.

The Big C starts Monday 16th on Showtime at 10.30pm / 9.30c – Good Enough Mother shall be watching…

But what do you think? Are you excited for the show? And what’s holding you back in your life?

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
