Looking for Glitz and Glam?
2 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for Glitz and Glam, forget it.

If you appreciate the absurdity of every day living, you have found your home.

I adore Nurse Jackie, as the former poster noted that she liked, however if you can polish off that sheen you might find something that at least looks like real life here.

Easy to make exciting traumatic moments; it's a bit harder to convey the strength of emotion that stretches out when someone takes more than an episode to die.

I am believer of reality vs. fiction, and as quirky "Getting On" is, it is heads and shoulders above Nurse Jackie in realism. What a fantastic balance "Getting On" has struck.

It has a quiet "emergency"!
