United States of Tara

Toni Collette is, for me, one of the best actresses that we have around. I loved her in "In Her Shoes" and "Little Miss Sunshine". She's one of those few people on screen that tug at your heart when you see them cry.

For fans of "Sex and the City', John Corbett (aka Aidan Shaw) is in the show as Tara's husband. And Diablo Cody, the writer of "Juno", is one of the executive producers (Steven Spielberg is another one).

For the first few minoots of the Pilot episode, I was, like, what the hell is going on? And then I figured out that Tara (Collette) has multiple personalities raising a dysfunctional family. What a weird combo!

The opening credit is cute. You'll see there the different personalities: you get "T" (she wears a thong), "Buck" (the biker dude) and "Alice" (a Bree wannabe). Tara refers to them as the "Alters".

I found a show that I could watch while waiting for "So You Think You Can Dance", "Californication" and "True Blood" to come back later this year.
