Storyline

Tara, a professional woman, artist, wife and mother, diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly referred to as MPD - Multiple Personality Disorder) stops taking her medication and struggles to unite her "alters" (alternate personalities.) As the seemingly disparate portions of her psyche seek to combine and peaceably co-exist, Tara, her husband, their kids, family and friends deal with the fallout, life and various morons who do not know their schizophrenia from their MPD. Written by LA-Lawyer

Utter Crap
26 January 2009 | by catiechuSee all my reviews

Without plot. Without depth. A predictable and repetitive machine of a show run by bland trope characters that have proved tried-and-true to sell on modern TV. The lanky boy nerd, rebellious teenage daughter, firm yet gentle husband, leading female character who has so much on her plate which she manages, albeit, often, just barely. Events that are persistently so unreal to modern life that they become commonplace in works fiction. Characters that are a little out-there, a little offbeat, but only a little, not so much to make the viewer question whether or not he can like the characters as he likes himself. If you've ever TOUCHED a piece of contemporary fiction you'll be able to predict each and every turn. I really wanted to find something likable in this but it's just so atrociously bad. Not only is it non-authentic, there isn't an ounce of freshness in it. I cannot more firmly encourage the intelligent viewer to abstain.
