Geriatric Nurse show "Getting On"....have you watched?


I would LOVE to watch this show----it is on HBO. It's about a geriatric wing of a down and out hospital.....I think it's a "dramedy".....I don't know if it's more funny or serious. Has anyone hear watched it? :)

Yes I love that show! Very funny and realistic. Doesn't put nurses in a bad light at all.

Oh I watched the whole season the other day, it was a riot! (it's only 6 episodes) I love this show, it is funny and has moments of serious clarity as well. Well worth watching. Another season was picked up by HBO.

I LOVE it!!!!! I find a lot of elements of it to be incredibly realistic (although obviously not all of it).

I loved this show. Great balance between kind of dark and dry humor and what seems like realistic issues within the setting.

Reminds me of the show on Netfix "Derek" with Ricky Gervais. Comedic but heart warming bits.

Yes! I think its hilarious and probably the most accurate "healthcare" show I've seen.
