United States of Tara is a dramedy on Showtime. It stars Toni Collette. It was created by Steven Spielberg and developed by Diablo Cody. The show follows the life of a woman suffering from dissociative identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder. It shows how she and her family copes with her disease. She’s decided to stop taking her meds and to find the root cause of her disorder. T, Alice, and Buck are three of her alter-egos who re-emerge.

I liked the show. There is obviously a part of Tara that likes getting attention from everyone, which is why she prances around in public in different personas, but usually, her family keeps a tight lid on her to help her deal with this.
Toni Collette is a great actress and she plays the role of Tara pretty well. I enjoyed seeing her as T, the wild teenager and as Buck, the drinking vet.
I don’t remember why I stopped posting about this show, maybe they are archived on my laptop, but I remember watching the whole first series and enjoying it. Quite a lot more than Weeds, which had started to become redundant.

All the aggression has got Max horny. They get busy. Tara doesn’t want to screw in the house, so they go into the garden.
Kate is giving Tara some much deserved attitude. Charm arrives and talks about her wedding plans. She saw them screwing in the yard.
Tara asks the gay neighbors for a referral. He gave Tara a book from a therapist. She is quick to talk about this to Max. He says that she needs a doctor. She wants to do phone therapy and Skype therapy. It’s idiotic.
We went to quack after quack after quack. It was a duck pond
