Very fun with great acting by main character.

This show is so interesting in its depiction of a "really" dysfunctional family.

I have worked with DID patients for over 20 years and have conducted much research on DID and dissociation. I approached this television show with trepidation because DID has so often been distorted and sensationalized by previous films and television programs. To my very pleasant surprise,the United States of Tara has presented a remarkably accurate portrayal of an admittedly uncommon presentation of DID (i.e., highly visible and public displays of switching from alter to alter). In contrast, the alter personalities of most persons with DID are quite hidden; the alters intentionally avoid public exposure. That said, the creaters and writers of the United States of Tara sought extensive consultation from experts on DID and have done an excellent job of presenting the symptoms, psychological issues, family interactions, and the difficulties in the therapy of persons with DID. Similarly, the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, which has provided professional commentary on each episode of the program [...], has consistently found the United States of Tara to be surprisingly accurate (within the limits of a darkly comedic show whose purpose is, of course, to entertain).

This is the most original show I have seen in a long time. It is an amazing look at what life with a person suffering from multiple personalities could be like. At the same time, a lot of the issues dealt with this in this show every family deals with. It shows the struggle a family faces in defining themselves as a family as well as individuals. A classic in the making. Set your TIVO!

What a brilliant TV show, with some great acting from not only Toni Collette but also the other cast members.
There are some people (the minority) that will be offended by the show, quoting it as unresearched or unrealistic. But what is pretty clear (and what they may like to remember) is that the writers have created a dark comedic undertone in which the actors portray very well.
Well done to the producers and all involved for taking quite a few risks and pushing boundaries, I'm sick of "safe" TV.
GREAT!!

I have had customers asking for this set since June so I was more than happy to finally get it in this week. I cranked through the episodes in a few days and loved everything Toni Collette has made on screen here. Her performance was amazing and in the end, carries the set.

The set is spanned over two discs with the both the PC and DVD supplements placed on disc 2, including:

* Sitting Down with Diablo Cody, 2:30 minutes. An ambush style interview that had some candid and funny moments but was way too short.
* Tara's Alters, 4 clips totaling 7 minutes. Each alter is briefly described by Collette or Corbett with Buck and Alice getting the longer cuts. T and Gimme only get a brief minute.
* Tudors episode 301. That set is already available so I guess they are trying hard to push this series.
* Sweepstakes entry, 3 minutes. A ad promo clip for travel to Collette's "home town" of Sydney. Have to admit I enjoyed seeing the luxury options available to one traveling in an Airbus 380.
* Photo gallery. Some decent pics of on-set stuff, lasts a couple minutes.
* Bios. Textual bios of the main cast and minds behind the show.

PC extras: The disc loads a menu which forwards you to a website for the remaining extras.

* Contrary to what the artwork and ads tell you the first two episodes of Season 3 Californication are here - not Season 2.
* Podcast Interview with Collette, 2 minutes. Covers some more of her take on the series and characters. The other three interviews promised are not available.
* On the set - not available.
* Tudors Season 3, first two episodes.
* "More" - could not find anything different.

Overall, I think one would be buying this for watching the series only as the extras are short. The sound is selectable between 2.0 and 5.1 for the episodes, region coded 1, 2 discs in thin cases with episode descriptions in each. Solid acting and writing recommendation. Enjoy.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By The Brock Lesnar of Reviewing - The Most Hated on April 8, 2009
I wasnt to sure at first about this, but then I found out that Steven speilberg was doing it so I gave it a chance. Im sure glad I did give it a chance because it was a pretty damn good show about a woman that has split personalities and how it affects her family (Husband, Son, Daughter and Sister). Very funny but sometimes sad, I was not dissapointed with it until the season finale which I thought was kinda weak, well besides that each episode is only 30 minutes long, I thought they could at least of did hour long episodes, (same thing with WEEDS). This is a great new show for Showtime to add to their already awesome line up of original shows and am kinda disappointed that the next season wont be ready till 2010 ( Unless that was a error of some kind, I hope). Definetly something you should check out if you got a day with nothing to do, trust me you wont be sorry.

The whole family represents an amazing feat of casting - all are terrific in their roles. Toni Colette is an incredible actor. I promise, once you start watching you will want to watch them all back to back....

This show is not only entertaining but educational. I am MPD and have a husband and 4 children (most grown now). My family have watched the episodes more than a few times, pause it, and talk about how that situation has happened in our family and how it has affected each member. This is the first time that we have been able to communicate how we are feeling and how MPD impacts our lives and relationships.
I don't think people should critize something they have not experienced first hand. Being MPD it is easy for me and my family to see her triggers and understand how difficult it is for everyone.
