My Difference? My Personalities All Know Each Other.

By
United States of Tara on Showtime

As you might know, I’m not a huge tv girl. There are a few shows that I will record on the DVR and watch when I get time. But Tony and I do have a Sunday night ritual. It’s been going on for years. Back when Sex And The City was on HBO, we started watching shows together on Sunday nights. Sex And The City was obviously my find, but I think Tony actually enjoyed watching it. Or maybe it was Oz. We’ve been through The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Deadwood. Sometimes we watch Entourage, too. But most times that’s when we sit at the kitchen table and chat.

But anyway, back to the original reason for this post. I really like the newest show I’ve found…The United States of Tara. This is the first Showtime series we’ve really gotten into. We’ve only had Showtime for a year or so. And honestly, I was about to cut back on the cable. And, cue Murphy’s Law. That’s exactly when I found this show. Nothing against Showtime, but we just don’t watch that much television.

This show just cracks me up. But it’s serious, too. In a nutshell, it’s about a woman who has multiple personalities. She has decided to go off her medication and just take one day at a time. She (and her husband) want to figure out WHY these personalities are coming out. It has John Corbett as the husband, and I just like him. Ever since Northern Exposure. Now if you haven’t watched the show, don’t read the next paragraph.

SPOILER: When Tony and I saw the writing on the mural a few weeks ago, I nailed it. “There’s another personality.” I said matter-of-factly. I can’t wait to find out more about the peeing red poncho gremlin! ::END SPOILER:

I think that we all have multiple personalities. I have mommy-me, wife-me, bar owner-me, I’m just meeting you, so I’m going to be really fake-me, and on and on. But I realize that I have these personalities. And I can pick and choose them as I wish. So, I’m looking forward to our Sunday night tv time tonight! If you haven’t seen the show, watch it! Grab it on On Demand, go to a friend’s house with Showtime…whatever. And I think that True Blood is coming back on HBO some time late summer. I’ve started reading the first book that this series is based on. Maybe I can read the next one before the series starts up again!

Anything’s better than Spongebob, Baby Looney Tunes and Scooby Doo. Although, I have to admit…Phineas and Ferb is pretty funny.
