No Matter What *State* I'm in on Sunday Nights, I Will Be Watching Showtime...

Hey kids. So remember a couple of weeks ago when I was talking about Showtime's Sunday line up and I mentioned that I was super excited to see the new show "United States of Tara" but wasn't sure how good it would be? Yeah...they're showing the first episode on Facebook and Youtube and I just watched it...

ITS FUCKING AWESOME! I love it! :-D From the first minute, you can tell that Diablo Cody certainly had her hand in this work of art. The supporting actors are pretty phenomenal and Toni Collette, just WOW.

Want to see what I'm going on about? Sit back and relax, as I give you (a super short one hour?) of "United States of Tara: Pilot episode:"



Leave your comments here and let me know what you thought of it.

I watched the episode OnDemand (it is also on Showtime OnDemand and it is absolutely amazing.
I absolutely adore Toni Collette and John Corbett. She really packs a punch in all of her personalities and I am not sure how many she actually has, is it just the three others.

T cracks me up and Buck well- that was halarious when "he" grabs the girls butt at the recital.

I definitely will be tuning in. I figured with it's casting that the show would be worth a try, but it was more so than that.

Very good watch!
Take care,
Lori

Yeah, I'm really sad that I don't have Showtime... I'll definitely be buying this when it comes out on DVD.

Ohhhh, Showtime let me have a sneak peek a couple of weeks ago but I wasn't all that wowed. Toni Collette is great, of course. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was like the pilot was trying to hard. I'll have to see how the show develops.
