      75% 8 Reviews Tomatometer 86% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Acclaimed actress Laura Linney stars in this comedy-drama as Minneapolis schoolteacher Cathy Jamison, whose reserved, structured way of life is turned upside down after she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Gone are the days of pleasing everyone else; now, for the first time in her life, she is going to choose the path that most suits her needs. And that means, in part, telling her immature husband, spoiled son and outspoken brother to grow up.

      Claire Zulkey AV Club The series feels much more relaxed now that Cathy and Paul are back together. Linney and Oliver Platt have such easy chemistry that their broken marriage of last season seemed like a waste. Rated: B+ Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Maureen Ryan Huffington Post The end result is that, despite the fact that I'm a huge fan of Linney, The Big C irritated me more frequently than it got me interested in the present and future of cancer patient Cathy Jamison. Jun 27, 2011 Full Review David Wiegand San Francisco Chronicle When The Big C works, it's because we see the ironies, sometimes humorous, other times sad, of facing a terminal illness in the context of everyday life. For Cathy - and for viewers - that's what really counts: "life" and "every day." Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 27, 2011 Full Review Juan Polo Espinof "The Big C" is a good series that's fun and dramatic in equal parts that deals with themes that are sentimentally vital. [Full Review in Spanish] Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Matt Richenthal TV Fanatic All you can often ask of a series is for its characters to move forward in some way. That's clearly happening here. Combined with stellar performances, The Big C should make for appointment viewing. Rated: 4.6/5 Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The Big C feels much more alive, even though it's a show about a woman, Cathy (Laura Linney), who's dying of stage 4 cancer.
