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, her somewhat troubled teenage daughter Kate and quirky, good-hearted gay son Marshall. Her sister, Charmaine, is not so supportive, often expressing her doubt about the validity of Tara's disorder. From Wiki
I first learnt about this show when being forced to watch Rove one Sunday night, and was intrigued by the interview with Toni Collette. So I watched the series, and found it rather interesting.
Maybe it is my psych backgound, but I was intrigued by how the family, and Tara, coped with everything that went on.
And maybe just a tiny tiny little bit of me made me see my disjointed family as 'normal' Pin It
