“Bring it on” is the slogan for Showtime’s summer season – with two brand new promo posters being released for Laura Linney’s The Big C and stoner drama Weeds. Both shows are scheduled to premiere on 27th June 2011, back to back.
I’ve chosen to lead with the Big C poster, mostly due to an ongoing crush on Ms Linney. This is season 2 for The Big C, one of my surprise favourite shows from last year. Linney’s character, Cathy, has finally come clean about her cancer to her family and she’s hoping for a cure this year.
Having fallen in love with Cathy’s slightly-unhinged dash to live as much of her life as poossible last season, I can’t wait for this year’s shenanigans. Although I’m secretly hoping that she’ll ditch her husband (he annoys me – or is it rivalry?), I’m also hoping that Cathy’s son will stop being such a spoiled little whinger!
In the seventh (and possibly final) season of Weeds, Nancy’s (Mary-Louise Parker) moving to New York City. And doesn’t she look dangerous with that big chain? Rumour has it that the action in the new season will take place three years after Nancy’s confession in season 6.
The blurb from Showtime says “both women are diving headfirst into new adventures this summer”. Bring it on, indeed!
