Overview

Tara Gregson is a wife and mother with dissociative identity disorder (DID). After deciding to take a break from her medication to discover the real cause of her disorder, her alternate personalties re-emerge: wild and flirty teenager T; old-fashioned housewife Alice; and male, loud, beer-drinking Vietnam vet Buck. Tara is supported by her calm and level-headed husband Max (John Corbett), her somewhat troubled teenage daughter Kate (Brie Larson) and quirky, good-hearted gay son Marshall (Keir Gilchrist). Her sister, Charmaine (Rosemarie DeWitt), is not so supportive, often expressing her doubt about the validity of Tara's disorder.

    one of the best new shows on cable

    I really enjoyed this show even though the concept had me wondering what it would be like. all the actors and their characters are amazing and you get totally into their lives. It is full of laughs but also thoughtful times. Just good, all around enertainment. I buy these dvds usually so friends or family can watch that do not have cable and would never see them on my own. then they become part of my collection of favorites!! Cannot wait for season two to start on showtime.
