Showtime’s Big C

September 27, 2010

Elba and Linney

Five episodes in and Showtime’s The Big C gets a second season pickup. Starring the brilliant Laura Linney, the always-over-the-top Oliver Platt, my girl Gabourey Sidibe (proving to the naysayers that she’s a lot more than a one-trick pony – and pretty effin hilarious) and – as of last week – the jaw-droppingly handsome Idris Elba, the series straddles serious subject matter with a realistic dose of comedy very adeptly.* Played by a weaker cast, you might not get that.

With episode 6 playing tonight, we are officially starting the second half of the season. Will Linney’s Cathy tell her family she has cancer? Will Cathy’s neighbor Marlene (Phyllis Somerville) fall for her homeless brother, Sean (Adam Benjamin Hickey)? Will we get to see more of my future husband Cathy’s new beau, Lenny (Elba)? Who knows. We’ll have to watch to find out. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at a scene from tonight’s episode.



* Elba is a talented actor as well; he is not just eye candy, although his eye candiness cannot be denied.
