All the TV Families I Want to Have Dinner With

Recently I started a new Netflix series, which is such a commonplace occurrence in this day and age, it’s like the equivalent of eating a banana. Yet, unlike bananas, TV shows have plot lines, characters, sets, and narratives into which you’re invited to fall down and emerge hours later, sedated, stuck to your couch, two seasons in and none the wiser.

Either way, the banana I’ve been eating TV show I’ve been lobbing myself at for the past week is United States of Tara, a late, late aughts family drama about a mom (played by a truly electric Toni Colette) living with dissociative identity disorder and all the family tomfoolery, and difficulty, that comes along with that reality.
