  • Season 3 Premiere

    6.0
    Virtually nothing happened on tonight's episode of United States of Tara. I've gotten used to the first couple of US of Tara episodes being rather weak. This is the setup of the entire season, but knowing this show, there's not a doubt in my mind, things will pick up soon.



    Throughout the whole episode, I was waiting for some sort of big transition. All the personalities working as a system this season is a great concept and the final scene gave us a sense of that, but I was waiting for a larger pay off.



    Since when is Charmaine the main character? Seriously, she got the most lines tonight, her and Neil, and frankly, this doesn't make sense to me since I find them the least interesting. I really wanted to see more of Kate & Marshall.



    Not that I'm loving the whole Marshall/Lionel thing, but I'm looking forward in seeing what the writers come up with this season. Overall, solid premiere, can't wait to see what's next.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Max: Where have you been?
      Tara: You'll have to ask Buck.
      Max: You don't remember anything?
      Tara: Nothing.
      Max: Oh, I hate when they run off like this.

    • Max: (to Tara) Okay, I want you to call the cops, have them bust up this party so I can have a bunch of sex with my wife, please.

    • Tara: (to Charmaine) You're a good influence on her. My urge to sell her for parts is mostly subsided.

    • Lionel: But you know I'm not into everyone's need to have words for every fucking thing. "Boyfriend" is just another one of those gross words, like "vagina" or "love."

    • Kate: I've been sending out my résumé. I think I need to get a real job.
      Charmaine: Well, if you get a job, who's gonna take care of me? I'm fat and my feet hurt, and I can't fit into the nook next to the fridge to reach the diet cokes that my doctor thinks I should cut down on.

    • Tara: I am back at school for the first time since the early '90s, I've had my ass kicked by life, and I've had more therapy than an ex-altar boy. I wanna learn. I mean, you couldn't ask for a more willing vessel. Besides, you know two or three or ten of these kids are bound to drop out by October, their little brains swollen with Coors
      Light. Me... I will still be there, raising my damn hand like every other overeager grown-up who ever wanted a second chance.

    • Max: Son of a bitch! Way my life's going, it's like I'm Charlie fucking Brown.

    • Neil: You don't want your wife taking a couple of college courses, and you have no problem with her putting on a pair of dime-store glasses, flying all over town on a motorcycle? I mean, Buck has guns. You okay with that?

    • Tara: I'm just sick of disappearing and... being the least interesting person inside me.
      Max: You're not. Chicken is.
