From the creators of 'Big Love' comes this comedy series about the dysfunctional staffers working in the female geriatric wing of a beleaguered California hospital. Led by disgruntled Dr. Jenna James (Laurie Metcalf), the staff in Season 1 includes no-nonsense newbie Nurse Didi (Niecy Nash), unit veteran Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein), who obsesses over her budding relationship with male Supervising Nurse Patsy (Mel Rodriguez)--a new hire who tries to implement a Disney-inspired, customer-centric work culture, while fending off questions about his sexual orientation.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoBorn On the Fourth of July||It's July 4th at the Billy Barnes Extended Care unit of Mt. Palms Hospital in Long Beach, CA. On her first day of work, Nurse Didi Ortley discovers feces on a lounge chair, and is torn between the conflicting orders of unit veteran Nurse Dawn Forchette (who wants to file an incident report before removing it), temporary Medical Director Dr. Jenna James (who is in need of stool samples for her medical study), and Supervising Nurse Beverly Raymes (who has issues with floor cleanliness and wants the seat sterilized). In a heated argument with Beverly, Dr. James has a public meltdown, and ends up being permanently assigned to this dead-end job. Meanwhile, the staff tries to determine the identity of an Asian woman found wandering on a highway, and debate what to do with a deceased patient's birthday cake.||30:14||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoIf You're Going to San Francisco||In the wake of Beverly's departure, a new (male) Supervising Nurse, Patsy De La Serda, joins the Billy Barnes staff with a customer-centric agenda he's convinced will improve ward efficiency. Patsy soon learns that managing patients--especially a highly uncooperative, un-medicated one named Varla--isn't necessarily improved through customer-service metrics. On the other end of the spectrum, a more docile patient named Donna wins DiDi's affection and displays impressive karaoke skills.||28:33||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoMake Someone Happy||DiDi ends up in conflict resolution after Patsy files a grievance against her for inappropriate remarks. Dawn learns that intimacy with a co-worker is no guarantee of evaluation immunity. Dr. James and Patsy go head-to-head when she decides to skip the 'Make Someone Happy' orientation to attend a Cleveland medical convention. A patient named Birdy sends shock waves through the ward when a gentleman caller, Leonard, arrives with a romantic agenda. Patsy announces a ward-wide deep cleaning.||28:14||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoDumped||Dr. James decides to implement a geriatric exercise program in the ward, upsetting Patsy, whose "Make Someone Happy" initiative now includes a live pianist and a fountain. DiDi discloses Patsy's relationship with Dawn to her union rep as proof her homophobic comment wasn't serious. A homeless woman, and her accompanying stench, is suspiciously dumped in the ward, prompting a staff investigation. Dawn wins the grand prize in Dr. James' charity raffle. Dr. James considers relocating after learning she must re-apply for a job she never wanted in the first place.||28:17||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoNightshift||DiDi's serene evening shift in the ward is turned upside down after the arrival of a new patient and several unwelcome, inebriated visitors. Stopping by after a (lamentable) dinner party, Dr. James attends to her drunken husband Richard's ingrown toenail while dreaming of a Cleveland fresh start; a woozy Dawn looks for stopgap comforts in the lounge after an unsettling evening with Patsy; and an elderly Swedish tourist shows off her gymnastic chops while complaining about her ruined vacation.||27:45||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Concert||Season One Finale. Phyllis (Molly Shannon), the daughter of an ailing patient, gets the travel runaround as her mother's condition worsens, improves, and worsens again. After criticizing a proposal to add men to the ward, Jenna tries to leverage her Cleveland opportunity into concessions from Dr. Stickley. Patsy bonds with fellow downtrodden male nurses while assessing his relationship with Dawn. DiDi's patience wears thin after a debt remains unpaid. The staff points fingers at each other after an equipment malfunction injures an irascible patient.||26:50||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Such good acting, this is a superb series, not for the faint of heart , it is the geriatric department
but the interaction between the actors is hilarious, I watched all 6 episodes in 2 sittings.
Too bad there is only 6 episodes...
Bitingly sarcastic and rip-roaring funny!
This show needs a second series. It is dark comedy at its best. You will not stop laughing. Excellent group of actors. If you want a good, hearty laugh, watch “Getting On.” Highly recommended.
Acting, dialogue, story lines — all superb!
So happy this show got a second season. And hopefully it’ll be a FULL season, not just six episodes. Season one was so smartly funny — a dark comedy at it’s best — that six episodes was way, way too short. Every actor in the ensemble is terrific and blends well, but Laurie Metcalfe might just stand out a bit as one of the funniest people currently on television. LOVE this show!
