A show that bring a darker comedy of health-care to light.
This show brings out an experimental comedy with smart writing, great cast of characters, and best of all, no cheap laughs. While it may take a couple of viewing, you just new a acquired taste for this show.
If you're the type of person that's into health-care you love the show Getting On. This show brings on so many emotions into 30 minutes. This show also packs A great cast of actors as well. Niecy Nash is a new nurse just coming into a wing of the hospital for extended-care patients (elderly people). Alex Borstein is the senior nurse dealing with some of the crazy people on the ward. Then finally the Head nurse starring Laurie Metcalf.
Getting On, on HBO, has strong language, other than that, deserve a shot to become a great show.
For those that say this show is terrible just remember another show called "it always sunny in Philly" it started out different, and became a phenomenal show. Mark my words. This show will get better.
