Since the premiere is online for any and all to see I'm assuming that it's all good to talk about the show without spoiler tags. ...Right?
I really liked this pilot and I thought I was going to hate it. Instead of the "wacky shenanigans" of a dying woman that I expected, I got woman who is standing up to the wacky people she spent her life pleasing. Much more enjoyable.
I'm not sure how it will sustain itself as a series. She either dies from the cancer, or doesn't; seems like only a few seasons to show the various treatments/problems or whatever.
Well, she's not seeking treatment so I'm guessing her diagnosis was that she has a year without treatment.
I didn't love everything about the show but the only thing I didn't like was not getting to see her actual diagnosis. The xray she looked at towards the end seemed like she had both breast and ovarian (?) cancer. The replay over lunch with her doctor was weird unless they're leading toward a romance between the two of them. I was kind of hoping she would get back with her husband until that lunch and I saw a little spark there that made me go 'hmm.'
I may have to subscribe to Showtime again before Dexter comes back. Weeds certainly isn't enough of a draw but this just might be.
