I get it, I really do. I can't imagine anything worse than the helplessness of a body that has turned against you and is killing you slowly and painfully. The on-the-nose "Mary Kills People," a show out of Canada airing on Lifetime, is the fictional story of Dr. Mary Harris, played by Caroline Dhavernas, who also gets it, and is in a position to do something about it.
The cast and the story pulled me in almost immediately. And despite the content, this drama has a touch of black humor that keeps it from getting too depressing. I'm glad I found this show, definitely worth checking out. Recommended.
