What do you think? Are you a fan of Chuck Lorre’s work? Will you watch B Positive?
This show is one of the funniest I’ve watched in a long time. Makes me wish I had that kind of support when I had cancer and had to go through chemo. It takes a bad situation and mixes in great humor.
I am a kidney transplant recipient and there is nothing comical about Kidney failure or the process of waiting. I find this idea offensive to the thousands of people suffering from any type of organ failure. Disappointed in CBS.
My son has been waiting almost 7 1/2 years for a B+ kidney. This isn’t funny. Can YOU find one for us?
I’ve watch people die begging for a kidney transplant and I don’t find this amusing in any way. This is completely offensive and disgusting as a premise for comedy. What the hell is a matter with you?
Why does this lorre get another show on? Omg now seems that cbs doesn’t say what’s on Lorre does.
Sounds tacky and inappropriate. Won’t watch.
My husband is a liver transplant recipient and there was nothing funny or comedic about the experience.
