Laura Linney, who is pretty impossible to hate, stars in the latest Showtime comedy, about a woman diagnosed with cancer. Ah, there’s nothing quite like the effervescent laughs from the old cancer routine. The next time you’re at a cocktail party and you’re just about finished with your drink try starting out your next story with this: “Did I ever tell you about the time I had colon cancer?” Barrel of monkeys that one is.
Anyways, Laura Linney. Adorable, even with the cancer. The show doesn’t premiere until Aug. 16, after Weeds, but the first episode is now online at Showtime’s website. Or you can watch it above.
(I had another semi-joke about the title of the show, but it’s not entirely appropriate [grandma Oyster reads sometimes too ya know!], if you’re dying hit me up on Twitter)
