If you haven't yet seen Laura Linney's "The Big C," this would be a good time to sample the audacious dark comedy that, over its first two seasons, made viewers laugh out loud and cry cathartic tears.  Showtime launches the series' third season tonight (4/8) (along with new seasons of its "Nurse Jackie" and "The Borgias"), accompanied by free viewings of the premiere episode on the internet.  Linney's cancer-stricken character, Cathy Jamison, gets some good news from her oncologist (Alan Alda), setting off a season of bargaining in her cancer journey.  What will she do with her priceless gift of more time?  Maybe a joyologist can help her find the answer.
