Getting On: The Complete First Season DVD

SKU ID #527680
$26.95
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:

    I've never come across a show that can so effectively trigger so many emotions at the same time, all while making you roll on the floor laughing. Getting On is so smartly done. Amazing ensemble cast and some great writing. I didn't hear about the first season at first, but once I discovered it I watched it from start to finish. Can't wait to get the DVD to call it my own forever and ever.

      I LOVE THIS SHOW! It has be rolling no matter how many times I see the same episode. I've seen all of the season 1 episodes 4 times because I keep having to show them to new folks. I've already seen the 1st episode of season 2 twice. I hope this show stays around a very long time.
