United States of Tara Wheels S03E04 (Showtime)

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.

Just like some other critics, I’ve noticed a definite problem with the overall quality of the show this season. After three episodes, it hasn’t improved. The quality of the dialog and the overall storyline is no longer what it was before. I’m going to give this show another chance, but if it doesn’t improve, I’ll most likely drop it.

Charmaine wants Tara away from the baby. Tara transitions. Max finds Alice instead.

We have a really big basketball and a really small hoop.
Nurse to Neil

I have a baby. A motherfucking baby! It looks like crap. Disgusting, blood-dripping, fucking raisin monster, but it is a motherfucking baby and it’s mine, mine!
Neil

Charmaine doesn’t want Tara to touch her baby. She doesn’t want Tara in the same room as the baby.

Babies are incontinent extensions of the adult desire to rewrite history.
Marsh

Marsh, Lionel and a friend are drinking. Then, they fool around.

Kate is waiting for her bags at the airport. She meets the flight attendant again.

Tara is arguing with T. She tells Hattaras that she wants to get a few more days to study for the test. He doesn’t believe any of her excuses and tells her to suck it up.

-Sleep just replaced sex as my favourite thing.
-Then you better choose a third, cause you’re not going to be having much sex either.
-My house smells like ass and semen.
Neil and Max

Max picks up Kate. Neil wants to name his daughter Cassandra Wheels Kowalski. Charmaine picked Cassandra.

Tara comes to see Charmaine. Charmaine doesn’t want her near her baby. She can’t trust her around Cassandra.

Kate wants to be a flight attendant.

Tara and Max argue. Tara has a conference with her alters. They come to some kind of agreement. This happened while Tara was doing her test. She wakes up covered in writing and all alone.
