This show has gotten so preposterous that sometimes I forget that Laura Linney is a highly-credible actress with plenty of range.

This is a show that lost any semblance of direction.

The show's quirky unpredictability feels less like life's ongoing, authentic messiness than a creative muddle.

The Big C isn't the worst TV series I've ever watched from beginning to end, but I'm not sure the show itself even recognizes just how mean and self-satisfied it is at its core.

The series may no longer create the types of unique points of tension and humor it did in the first season, but its broader comedy benefits from the energy these guest stars bring to each episode.
