Laura Linney and John Benjamin Hickey on their acclaimed US series
Acclaimed More4 drama The Big C stars three-time Emmy and Golden Globe winner Laura Linney as Cathy Jamison, a reserved suburban wife and mother who is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The show features top quality acting talent and handles a difficult subject in a comedic, yet sensitive way.

10 things I learned from the first episode of Britain's Got Talent

While the X Factor rumour mill continues to rumble on ("Cheryl's in! Simon's out! Cheryl's out! Simon's in! Cheryl's in!"), Britain's Got Talent has quietly got on with the business at hand: finding singing dogs, piano-playing pigs and downright bizarre human acts for millions of TV viewers.
Of all the talent shows on the box at the moment, this is by far the craziest and most entertaining. Every year I swear I won't get sucked in, but every year I do.
So there we all were waiting for the first episode which features new judging line-up Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff...
Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff talk Britain's Got Talent
Britain's Got Talent will throw up the usual glut of hard-done-by sob stories, contortionists, singers, animal acts, dance troupes, slug balancers, juggling mermaids, bearded ladies, and self-harmers, all vying for the chance to do their party piece at this year's Royal Variety Performance.
Judges Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff were in attendance for the press screening of the well-received first episode. Here's a snapshot of their views about the show.
Britain's Got Talent Q&A
Was there as much talent in Britain as you expected there to be?
The Hoff: Yes there was. It was pretty much the same in the States. You just get the weird, the wacky and the wonderful. But what I found watching this show, what I experienced, is the camaraderie of each city and each town. They've really got their own spirit. I love the audiences; at the drop of a hat, they just want to sing. And they're so into it and they're so positive...
Now that The Killing is on DVD, find out why you must see it.
BBC4's The Killing is the TV series everyone is talking about. Or at least, it's the TV series being talked about by everyone that knows good television when they see it.
The Danish crime series - starring Sofie GråbØl, Lars Mikkelsen and Bjarne Henriksen - has the kind of cult following last seen with US import The Wire."The Killing is tense and exciting," says The Guardian. "The Killing is seductively good," states The Independent.
The Killing follows a forensic team during a murder investigation. Each episode deals with a single day of the team’s efforts to put the pieces together.
Sharp and gripping, it has been growing a huge following; a US version has already been commissioned and will air in the states later in the year.
To celebrate the April 4th release of the Complete Season One on DVD, here are 10 reasons The Killing is must-see television...

Here's a quick round-up of some TV newbies
MTV is on a mission to transform plain Janes everywhere (hence the name). This new reality TV show will give the hopefuls a new look and the chance to bag the guy of their dreams.
The shy and retiring 'Janes' are in the hands of fashion expert, Louise Roe (pictured below). Each Jane will receive a head-to-toe style transformation, and while a new wardrobe will be part of the bargain, confidence-building exercises make sure our Jane emerges smart and sassy. So far, so Gok.
However, once the transformation is complete, the former 'Plain Jane' will surprise an unsuspecting crush with the new look and reveal her true feelings to him...
