This show is a remake of one show made in Catalonia in TV3. I know some of the writers and producers of the original one. When I heard that they cast Dave, it made me smile. What a coincidence :)

Is the show any good? I liked what I saw in the trailer, so I will have a look at it. :)

Yes, it's very good. It's a hit in Catalonia, it has a very good audience and the critics love it. It's very hard because it's about children with cancer, but it has a lot of humor too. It's very positive, and it gives you a good feeling and shows that even in the worst circumstances you can laugh and be happy and make friends and fall in love... I think that the US version will have more comedy than the catalan version. In the catalan one there is humor but not jokes and it's not a comedy. And I don't know if the US version will dare to show any death of the kids... I think it will be less harder than the original one. But who knows?
Here is the link of the catalan one. You can see the episodes for free:

I just might have a look at it, but I hope it will not give away too much of what is to come.

*** It's very hard because it's about children with cancer, but it has a lot of humor too. ***

I know how hard it can be. When Iris was in the hospital for her heart-surgery, she was at a children's hospital. And the kids that had to stay there, for there for several reasons, cancer too. It is sad, but at the same time, these kids are so brave and still want to have fun and laugh and play games etc... They're still children/young adults after all.

So, yes, I'm looking forward to this show, I think. :)

Yes, I think you will like it. It's very realistic. The creator of the show had cancer when he was a kid and he was several years in the hospital, the main character is based on himself. He explained the show exactly as you did, he wanted to show what you said: kids being still kids and how brave they were and how they still wanted to have a normal life and have fun. I hope the US version does justice to all of this and it will not be only a silly comedy :)
