United States of Tara

I got hooked on a new show when Aileen and I were having a paint your nails, eat pudding, and watch Will & Grace day. She showed me this since ended three series show on Showtime called, United States of Tara. Now she'd been talking about it for quite awhile saying I needed to watch it, but once I did a tv marathon ensued.

The whole show is about the life of Tara (Toni Collette) and her semi-dysfunctional but always loving family as she struggles with her Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Basically at any given moment Tara will change into anyone of her identities like Buck, a gun-slinging vietnamn veteran, Tea, a troubled sixteen year old girl, or Alice, a homemaker who likes to keep everyone in control. After awhile the identies just appear as characters and oscar award-winning Toni Collette acts so well that you can tell the character before she even says a word.

The acting and character development are so strong, this show can't be passed up. Give it a watch.
