Found out today that Showtime cancelled United States of Tara. I'm heartbroken because this is one of my favorite TV shows. I experience waterworks (that's a nice way of saying I bawl my eyes out) during almost every episode and I love, love, love the Gregsons and watching them work through their everyday lives.
I like the characters so much that I'd be entertained just watching them eat dinner! With Tara's DID, I know there would have been an endless supply of ideas to keep the show going. I think the show could have ran for years expanding on all the different alters.
Toni Collette is a genius. For someone to be able to play that many different characters on a weekly basis is amazing. I'll miss Tara, cutie pie Max played by John Corbett (who I'll always think of as Aidan), Kate and Moosh.
I'm glad Nurse Jackie was renewed (gotta love Coop!) though. It's a great show, but I don't have near as big of a place in my heart for it as I do for Tara.
Luckily, I have all three seasons on DVD and can watch my favorite family whenever I want.
