'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.

Wow, just when you think you've seen it all from Tara, something happens and you're left with your jaw dropping to the floor. Creator Diablo Cody has clearly decided that Tara's psyche is not just split, it's a frigging kaleidoscope.

Last season, there was the animal creation that came out of nowhere, and in this episode, yet another variation on the theme. However, if you saw this one coming, you're better than me, 'cause I was stunned. And surprisingly excited, too. For more on Tara, Max, Marshall and Princess Valhalla, keep reading after the jump.

Joey Lauren Adams on 'United States of Tara'On last night's 'United States of Tara' (Mon., 11PM ET on SHO), Tara's husband Max (John Corbett) found out -- in public -- that his wife (Toni Collette) is cheating on him. To be clear, it's one of Tara's split personalities, but still.

Tara tried to explain to girlfriend Pammy (Joey Lauren Adams) that it's her "fake personality" Buck who's been pursuing her. She doesn't care, going so far as to announce her love to Tara -- and husband Max and fellow ice-skating patrons.

"Buck, I love you, I love you for who you really are. Buck, Tara -- all of you!" Max is, suffice to say, pissed.

Sex was the topic of the day in and around the 'United States of Tara,' with nearly everyone questioning, experimenting, wondering and musing about the subject. Gay, straight, bi and variations on a theme. There was something about dogs in a bathtub that's still beyond me. But for the real skinny on how Tara's getting on, follow me after the jump and join the free skate.

There's nothing united about Tara's states right now. After all the time away in therapy and the realization that her shattered persona was not the result of what happened at school when she was a teenager, the reality emerging is that something is askew in her psyche that cannot be fixed... The lid on the pot is shaking and ready to explode. More on that and Marshall's gay-size shorts after the jump.

Showtime Renews 'Jackie' and 'Tara' for Third Seasons

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 26th 2010 10:45AM
Nurse JackieWith their second seasons just off the starting blocks, Showtime has already ordered a third for both 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Monday-night's season opener snagged 'Jackie' it's highest numbers to date (1.5 million over two airings) and 'Tara' was on par with its first season debut.

Her bang-on portrayal of a jaded E.R. nurse whose unmanageable back pain leads her to abuse pain pills (and the man who dispenses them) earned star Edie Falco her seventh Golden Globe nomination (she won two for 'The Sopranos'). 'Tara' lead Toni Collette, meanwhile, nabbed both the Globe and an Emmy statues at last year's ceremonies.

Showtime Picks Up Third Seasons of 'Jackie' and 'Tara'

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 25th 2010 6:40PM
showtime_logo_redIt doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize that Showtime is the home of two of the best comedies currently on the air, 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara.' Having been fortunate enough to enjoy the season two premieres of these two shows last Sunday, it came as no surprise that Showtime announced today that both 'Jackie' and 'Tara' are coming back for a third season.

Actually, it is a bit of a surprise ... that it happened so fast! Showtime could have saved the news for a few weeks or even the end of these second seasons. But you have to figure the premium cable channel is pretty happy with the ratings these shows have generated and the enthusiasm is palpable. Another season, twelve more episodes of each, and for the creators of these shows that just has to be a great validation.

Suicide is Victory on 'United States of Tara' (VIDEO)

The United States of Tara, season 2 premiereOnly on 'United States of Tara' (Mon., 10:30PM ET on Showtime) could a suicide be a victory. At least, it's a victory to Tara because she's not the one who off'd herself.

"I'm gonna run with it," Tara tells her family. "I'm gonna freak people out ... dress like Napoleon ... pee on everyone ..."

Yeah, she probably won't be getting the "sanest person on the block" award any time soon either.

The united part of the 'United States of Tara' was served up handily in the season premiere, with the family looking like the model of normalcy. And yet even as there seemed to be nothing wrong, below the surface was that gnawing feeling that Buck, T, Alice and whoever, might be lurking, ready to pop out. When the pop finally went off, however, it wasn't what we anticipated. It wasn't even in their house. More on that and the purple carnations after the jump.

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 22nd 2010 7:45PM
At the end of season 1 of 'United States of Tara,' it seemed like Tara was finally ready to get back on her meds and get her life back under control.

Of course, that won't last long -- according to Toni Collette, there are a couple of new alternate personalities for her character Tara this season, including a mentor of sorts named Shoshanna. Rosemarie DeWitt, who plays Tara's TV sister Charmaine, loves seeing the family happy, but admits that the other shoe drops "very quickly."

We sat down with both stars to talk alters, big guest stars, engagements and love -- "there's a lot of lovin' going on!" laughs Collette. Check it out right here ...

'United States of Tara' Returns: John Corbett Talks Season 2

by Anna Dimond, posted Mar 22nd 2010 6:00PM
Showtime's 'United States of Tara' debuted last year with executive producer Steven Spielberg and Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody ('Juno') at the helm. As the show kicks off its second season (Mon., March 22 at 10:30PM ET on Showtime), it's established itself as both a ratings winner and a critical success.

The show stars Toni Collette as Tara Gregson, a suburban mom with Dissociative Identity Disorder, which leads her to experience multiple personalities (known as alters on the show). In season 1, viewers got to know Tara's alters -- from the teenage "T" to the tough-talking Buck -- and saw how her husband Max (John Corbett) and their two teen children dealt with such circumstances alongside the everyday issues that average families face.

'United States of Tara' was nominated for a handful of recent awards, and Collette scored an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance. And while Tara is still the driving personality in the show, Corbett's character reveals new components of his personality this season as the consequences of his wife's disorder begin to take a toll.

Corbett chatted with AOL TV to give us a glimpse of what to expect in season 2, what his reaction was to Max's arc, and why you'll never hear a 'Sex and the City' reference in his other on-camera projects.

Stewart asks Collette to guess the name of her favorite actor of all time, who also happens to be an Aussie. "He's the younger of the two most famous Australian actors," Stewart said cryptically, offering Collette one of several unhelpful clues.

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 17th 2010 4:00PM
On 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS), Harry Smith puts on a good display of asking Toni Collette a prepared question as if he didn't already know the answer. Collette, however, calls the anchor out on his show of acting, prompting Smith to share his notes, then change the subject by complimenting Collette's appearance.

"You look spectacular, by the way," said Smith, who then added hopefully, "I know you're jet-lagged and you won't remember this interview when it's over."
