United States of Tara 3 Seasons 2011

Available on Prime
Season 3
Available on Prime
4.7 out of 5 stars (276) IMDb 7.9/10

Season 3 begins with Tara returning to the family's Labor Day barbecue, after a transition to Buck leads her on an unexpected mission. Kate is trying desperately to plan the next phase of her life, one that does not include college or living with her very pregnant Aunt Charmaine, who, in her own way, avoids committing to Neil. Meanwhile, student filmmakers Marshall and Lionel Trane make their first commitment together when they purchase a new video camera for film class. All the college talk makes Tara realize how badly she wants to finish the last few credits of her own degree, and so, with the help of Ted Mayo (MICHAEL HITCHCOCK), Tara enrolls in a few classes, including a psychology course taught by the charismatic Dr. Jack Hattaras. But Max is fearful that the stress of college will cause Tara to transition...or worse.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on June 22, 2011
Format: DVD
When "United States of Tara" premiered on Showtime in 2009, its creator Diablo Cody was still riding high from her Oscar win as the writer of "Juno." It's clear that she wanted to establish an eccentric and complicated comedy that spoke to serious issues in an outrageous way. I mean the idea of tackling a multiple personality disorder within a robust family sitcom is certainly an unconventional notion. And her muse seemed to be the energetic Toni Collette who brought numerous dimensions to the multifaceted lead character. As a suburban wife and mother in Overland Park, Kansas--Tara, with her built in plethora of alters, provided Collette with endless acting possibilities. And who doesn't love showy performances? Winning both an Emmy and a Golden Globe, Collette embraced the show's lunacy while finding true heart and pain when appropriate. For me, she has always been the primary reason to watch this chaotic program and the show excelled in the quieter, more realistic, moments showcasing the family dynamic.

I have watched "Tara" for its entire three season run and have not always embraced the over-the-top antics of the supporting cast. Tara's daughter and sister, in particular, have struggled to find an easy balance as real characters. Their wackiness has somehow always felt false and distracted me from the genuineness of the central theme. Rosemarie DeWitt, a fine actress in every respect, could be undeniably grating as sister Charmaine while Brie Larson has been saddled with some of the series' most unfortunate plot lines (an awkward harassment case at work in Season One, a ludicrous Internet story in Season Two) as a daughter moving into adulthood. I mention this at length because the show could have too much eccentricity for its own good.

Season 3 has unexpectedly become the final season of one the greatest shows to come along in a long time. Was United States of Tara perfect...no, but the show had something that other Showtime shows did not...it had guts. The guts to not repeat the exact same formula season after season (ex. Dexter & Nurse Jackie). Sadly if U.S. Tara would have repeated the same formula it created in season 1 it would probably have kept its viewers and not been cancelled. The American viewing public seems to prefer....well I digress. Season 3 stands as the strongest season of U.S. Tara...though season 2 is my personal favorite, season 3 is the most fast-paced, dark, complex, and well-written season of the show. It's tragic that this show was cancelled when it was at its very best.

I won't go over the entire plot line or give any major spoilers, but the main arch of the season involves Tara returning to college to complete her degree, the revelation that she didn't complete her degree the first time around because she attempted suicide, the emergence of a mysterious & violent alter, and an all out war inside Tara's head for control. The storylines for the other family members have always tended to be weak, contrived, or ridiculous (Kate on a cake, season 2 for example), but in season 3 the writers seem to have finally found interesting storylines for the family members...though granted their storylines are far less interesting than Tara's story. Kate finally makes the transition into adulthood and while there isn't much exciting in her storyline, it is believable and refreshing. Marshall and Max on the other hand have interesting storylines that involve their internal conflicts in dealing with Tara's disorder and with each other.
