United States of Tara

This is one of the excellent new kind of TV series we've been seeing in the past decade: basically a drama, but with a very strong overtone (undertone?) of comedy.
This one can't have been easy to write or act, to make multiple personalities not be too sad or scary or serious, and yet not go over the top with the comedy.
Recommended.

Love that show. I love dark comedy and Showtime has put themselves firmly into that niche with Californication, Weeds and now The Big C that finished its first season a few months back. All brilliant shows if you've not seen them.

Weeds is good; I'll look at the others, thanks.
