For some reason I was expecting a Tracy Ulman type
one-woman-show when I saw the ads for Showtime's new show: The United
States of Tara, starring Toni Collette. I was excited because Collette
never seems to disappoint (Little Miss Sunshine, Murial's Wedding). Turns
out it's a comedy/drama about a woman with multiple personalities.
Frankly, I couldn't get through the free episode that Showtime is
offering on their website. The concept of a family who deals with the
'crazy' mom on a regular basis felt really forced. After the suburban
family that lives comfortably with polygamy and the one that has a pot
dealing mom, I guess this was the next step? I obviously didn't give it
a fair chance, but I wondered if anyone else did? What did you think?
