Diablo Cody (Oscar-winning screenwriter of Juno) was on The View this morning. I read her blog on MySpace now and then and learned from there about this appearance. She and Toni Collette are making the rounds to publicize the new series on Showtime The United States of Tara. Toni Collette plays Tara who has multiple-personality disorder, which is called dissociative-identity disorder now. Diablo Cody writes it, and Stephen Spielberg created and produces it. John Corbett plays Tara's husband. I've liked him since Northern Exposure, and then he was Aiden the perfect boyfriend on Sex and the City. It sounds good, but I'll have to wait and see it on DVD later on since I don't have Showtime. HBO, yes. They said at the Comcast office that I could subscribe for six months for some kind of deal, which would probably give me enough time to watch the first season of it, but I already have so much that I watch now that I guess I can wait for it to come out on DVD.
Showtime has some shows I'd like to see - Weeds and Dexter, for two. I watched Dexter on network which was censored. I'll think about this. I'd have to catch up on Weeds and Dexter to know what's going on now since I've never seen any of Weeds and only the first season of Dexter.
Have any of you seen these or something else on Showtime that you liked? I've seen many series on HBO I liked - Six Feet Under, Big Love, The Sopranos, Deadwood, John Adams, and some others I can't remember right now. I missed True Blood except for one episode, which I really liked, and will catch it when they show it again.
