The show seems to be making more of an effort to learn from its mistakes.
The more the Gregson marriage spirals out of control, the more interesting this season has become. I may not like the person Tara is right now, but she's not boring.
Toni Collette does such spectacular work on United States of Tara that her performance alone demands you tune in.
All of the characters feel looser and more lived in, and the series is playing up the comedy in its characters without undercutting the inherent drama at the show's core.
As ever, United States of Tara is mainly a story about Tara and her mental problems and how well Toni Collette can pull it all off.
Based on its promising first season, "Tara's" second go-round is the bigger disappointment.
As promising as the early episodes in Season 2 are, the over-the-top nature of "Tara" remains.
It's hard to think of a show that's done a better job of course correction between seasons.
The writers also manage to mine some humor out of the other story arcs because if they can at least keep me chuckling, coupled with Collette's performance, I'm willing to stick around despite not being pulled in by the storylines as much as I'd like.
Audience Reviews for United States of Tara: Season 2
Apr 29, 2019This is a horribly written show. Sadly Toni Collete's acting was wasted by portraying this ridiculous character. I'm in no way homophobic nor do I dislike liberals, but this show openly bashed conservative points of views and the sexual talk was bordering on disgusting. I don't believe in DID, and honestly think the condition is an extreme form of borderline personality disorder. The show is unrealistic having us believe that this family would be able to live a normal life with an extremely deranged mother who needs to be admitted for a long term stay at a psychiatric hospital. The dialogue and plot are unbelievable and it should have been pulled from Showtime after the first season. Don't waste 45 minutes of your life watching this show. Mental illnesses are not " cute and funny" like Diablo Cody seems to push through this horribly written garbage of a show.
Feb 07, 2014Disappointing, considering how much I loved season 1, however, despite its more quirky/bizarre nature, season 2 has a lot to offer. Diablo Cody didn't write as many of the episodes and its easy to tell, but even so season 2 of US of Tara is a lot better than your average comedy.
