The United States of Tara (DID, Multiples opinion welcome!)
Recently, an ad has been running on the telly for a show that they're gonna start airing around here, the show's called United States of Tara and is about a woman with dissociative identity disorder.
I'll admit I haven't watched it yet, as it's only about to start airing, but I have to admit, it piqued my interest.

I was wondering if anyone had seen it, what their opinions are, and whether they found it a good representation of DID and/or multiplicity.

Re: The United States of Tara (DID, Multiples opinion welcome!)
I have seen only two of it's episodes. I really enjoyed it. I don't know that much about DID, but from some reviews I read, it's apparently one of the better representations of it.

In the very first you start out with Tara talking about her getting ready to transition to one of her alters. She explains why she is getting ready to, what the trigger was. Then the majority of the episode involves this alter. It's either in that episode or the second one that you find out why she isn't on meds for it and such. It's meant to be a comedy, so that might be a draw back for some because it's still making fun of a mental illness in that respect.

So there ya go. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
