Don't be scared of "Tara." You can jump right in and get the gist of just who Collette is -- uh, are.

The show succeeds in de-stigmatizing a very misunderstood condition and provides some thoughtful, heartwarming -- albeit mature -- entertainment.

For Toni Collette, the transition between personalities is a feat to behold... The supporting cast more than matches her talent.

Many questions from just one episode, and two seasons' worth of solid storytelling to make me believe we'll get satisfactory answers.

December 7, 2018 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

This is the year this series vaults to the top echelon of TV's most compelling, complex current series.

The show may be more funny-peculiar than ha-ha, but it is also a real pleasure to watch, owing to the fact that Tara is surrounded by a great ensemble.
