After a period of peace and treatment with new medication for her dissociative identity disorder, Tara is disturbed to discover that her alters are back when Buck has an affair with the local barmaid. Max (John Corbett) embarks on a remodeling project when the Gregsons surprisingly inherit a neighbor's house after he commits suicide.

Critic Reviews for United States of Tara: Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

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.

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.

December 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.
