New Showtime Series "United States of Tara" is original AND entertaining

  • Jan 19, 2009

Showtime has a pretty good track record with hit shows like Weeds, Dexter, and Secret Diary of a Call Girl so when I saw the previews for their new series about Tara, a forty-something wife and mother of two who suffers from Disassociative Identity Disorder (aka multiple personality disorder) I was committed to tuning in. Sure enough, Showtime has done it again. This series is edgy, funny, and wildly original. The pilot sets the premise flawlessly and begins with Tara recording a video (most likely as a documentation of her sporadic lucidity) and discussing a troubling discovery about her daughter. As her emotional state escalates she turns off the tape and, after what seems like a momentary black out, shakes it off and makes her way towards her teenage daughter's room all while removing the clothes that she is wearing. She is now T, a scantily clad fifteen-year-old "alter" who smokes pot, uses vulgar language, and has the attention span of a potato. This is merely one of Tara's "alters". As the show continues Tara comes back only to be lost again by Buck, another instrusive personality who smokes, talks, drinks, and dresses like a trucker. In this first episode we only have the pleasure of making the acquaintance of two of Tara's alters and have yet to meet the third named, Alice. Tune in to showtime on Sunday nights to meet her. There's never going to be a dull moment in this show.
