* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: We're supposed to see the main character of The Big C as an uptight woman who becomes liberated by her impending death by incurable cancer; unfortunately quite a few critics see her as a selfish woman who cares so little about her family (ManChild husband, crazy environnmentalist brother and JerkAss teen son; she doesn't have any friends) that she doesn't bother to explain her abrupt change in character. Everyone else is justified in thinking she's just an incredibly rude person.
** A friend (played by [[SexAndTheCity Cynthia Nixon]]) shows up in episode 8.
* ColbertBump: Strangely, has made ''more'' people (especially [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the British, who like this show a lot]]), want to visit Minnesota, including St. Paul.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Marlene. So much so that people are threatening to drop the show after [[spoiler:her suicide]].
