'United States of Tara' - 'Doin' Time' Recap

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 20th 2010 12:44AM
(S02E05) There's something very comforting about the massive dysfunction among Tara and her family, especially since they have such a way of not letting the craziness really get to them. It's almost as if Tara's condition has prepared those around her to accept whatever slings and arrows get tossed their way. More on the latest patient of Dr. Shoshona Schoenbaum and Neil's hairy back patch after the jump.

I Pity the Fool: Communication

T Balls!(S01E06) Mr. T finally meets someone that I'd love to see him go three rounds in the ring with -- Chef Ed. This week's show takes T to a flagging Italian restaurant called La Spezia, where the chef doesn't get along with and the staff or Owner Mike. When I say don't get along, I mean that there is real concern that Ed might take a cleaver to someone one day in the kitchen. The main ingredient in his character is a lot of rage. When you pit an immovable T against an unstoppable angry chef, whadda ya get? I ... don't really know the answer, that just sounded impressive to me.

I Pity The Fool: Leadership

(S01E03) First name Mr., last name T is back in his red jumpsuit and brings his Ah-T-tude to the airwaves. As usual, he gets a letter from a poor hapless soul.

"Deyah Mistah Tee, my name is Kristin, and I work at Metrostar Realty heeyah in Brookyln, New Yawk. I love real estate, and I love my job, but we got issues."

Boy, do they. Based on the first five minutes the cameras are in this office, you'd want to jump out one of the windows. It looks more like an episode of The Real World than a real estate office. Everyone is at each other's throats. Gene, the owner of the business is never at the office, and when he's gone the office goes nuts. He's a weak leader with a head of curly hair that would make Art Garfunkel jealous.

I Pity the Fool: Unity

(S01E02) T is summoned once again to duty, like the genie from Aladdin's lamp. This time he is summoned by the Abato family who want him to deal with the patriarch of their clan, the very flatulent Frank. In true T fashion, he runs (literally) straight to the town of Suffern, New York and gets to work. Can't they afford a car for T? Nice tie-in opportunity for T-Mobile. ZING!
