Getting On: The Complete First Season Blu-ray with Digital HD

SKU ID #641477
$34.98
At the Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit of Mount Palms Hospital in Long Beach, California, the staff attends to the needs of female patients who are often “getting on” in years, while dealing with the challenges of a health-care bureaucracy in need of an overhaul. Even as they attempt to serve their charges under less-than-ideal circumstances, the lives of this ragtag crew are complicated by conflicting agendas, both professional and personal.

Getting On, based on the BBC series of the same name, and created for American television by the co-creators of the acclaimed HBO® series Big Love, stars Laurie Metcalf (three Emmys® for Roseanne) as Dr. Jenna James, who once hoped to become a medical-research star, but has instead been sentenced to purgatory at the facility. Her staff, including Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Niecy Nash (Reno 911!) and Mel Rodriguez (Community), blend outrageous humor with unexpected moments of tenderness.

    Comments about this product:

    Must have been written by healthcare workers. Painful and grotesque truth of hospital reality. I sent it to my sister who is CFO of Mercy hospitals in State Capitol. She said she had a hard time laughing at the awful truth. Loved the required phrases "What can I do to make you happy today?" and "Is there anything else I can do for you, I have the time?"
