Can cancer be entertaining? We'll see...
14 May 2005 | by da_flipboySee all my reviews

I just got finished watching the first episode of this Canadian drama and so far, I like what I see. This episode took a little while for you to catch up to where the story was, but once there, it glides along nicely.

The strongest aspect of this show seems that while it would be EASY to make a tragic cryfest over the topic of cancer, it's treated here with a smirk and a bit of wit (while sneaking in a jab at reality TV). Maria del Mar does a wonderful job in the lead as the cancer-sufferer with the strange charm and it works well. The rest of the cast is good and are believable in their roles. The writing is sharp and production value (...as this is a Canadian production, I braced myself...) is very good (thank god).

I can't even imagine where this mini-series is going, but I highly suggest checking it out. Tentatively, 7.5 out of 10.
