      A great series that shows anything can be used as a basis for comedy

      The Big C is a comedy series with a serious storyline - two things you wouldn't think would mix, but it works. When I first saw the adverts for this programme I thought I'd give it a go, and I was really glad I did as it has now become one of my favourite shows. The series centers around the life of Cathy, a middle aged wife, mum, teacher, and most recently, cancer sufferer. Cathy is diagnosed in the first episode and we watch as she learns to live with the big C. It's hard to do it justice, as it must sound weird to say that a programme with a terminally ill main character is funny, but it really is. Cathy is at the centre of a dysfunctional family, surrounded by her midlife crisis husband, rebellious teenage son, and bi-polar brother.
      This programme has me howl with laughter, but it has also made me cry, it is truly great, and shines a new light on coping with cancer. For once, it is not all doom and gloom, and a touchy subject is handled well.
