It's just that - and I feel bad about saying this - there's no place left for the show to go, now it's in its fourth series. The characters are all played out.

These four episodes provided some genuine, emotional closure to the story of Cathy and her family, dealt interestingly and movingly with lots of questions about death, and what comes next and ended the series in the only way it honestly could.

This show always knows exactly how to mesh comedy and drama.

The Big C doesn't traffic in miracles, but it does deliver small pleasures worth pondering and savoring.

Linney herself also exudes remarkable confidence in a role where you'd think the only real option would be uncertainty.

With Hereafter, creators Darlene Hunt and Jenny Bicks, Linney and the cast and crew continue to guide viewers through treacherous territory many people may refuse to consider.

The path The Big C takes is fairly predictable and unsurprising, but that doesn't mean these last four hours aren't occasionally heartfelt.

Through lingering, dark humor and through more quiet, serious moments, the moral continues to be the importance of actually living.

The Big C has lacked the courage of its concept, particularly in this finishing kick, which falls back on the mawkish and sentimental, while leaving Linney's character to dispense lectures regarding near-death etiquette.
