    • It was very interesting but 1950′s news is a little dry… I would like to see the two leads in something again.. At least Freddy will have time for his next Bond movie!!!

  • Well…. it’s not like HBC and Dominic West will have to try very hard to top “Liz & Dick”… Although I doubt we’ll be able to turn their version into a ruinous drinking game either. Oh, TV, you give and you take…

  • I can already feel that the Big C finale is going to wreck me. This looks like a marked improvement from that crazy mess known as season 3.

    • Yes. Season 3 was horrible, but this makes me hopeful that it will end well.

    • My mother was diagnosed with cancer in September of last year. I started watching the show before the diagnosis. This trailer for The Big C: Hereafter brought tears to my eyes. I’m not even sure if I can watch Season 4… /coolstorybro

  • I just want to say that Helena Bonham Carter should NEVER be referenced as “following in Linday Lohan’s footsteps”.
