Warning: NO CLOSED CAPTIONING! Very disappointed to find that this DVD set doesn't have closed captioning - either by set-up menu or by TV settings. This seems very strange since all the previous seasons did have CC. And since the series probably had CC when it was originally broadcast, it seems weird/perverse that the DVDs don't. (Also, if you wanted to watch it in French or another language, don't bother - there is NO set-up menu whatsoever.)

Realistic, compelling storytelling about one woman's journey through cancer, into hospice, and beyond. Full of insights and wisdom regarding what it's like to live with cancer and the effects of chemo. Both funny and heartbreaking. You don't need to have watched the earlier seasons of this show to enjoy it. This DVD set stands alone. Warning: Kleenex will be needed.
