United States of Tara and How to Make It in America

Posted in Television by Tyrone Rubin on April 25, 2010

I am a TV addict and I cant seem to quit. I am currently watching Lost, The Office, House and 30 Rock and Loving all of them and they are surely providing me with a sense of entertainment that only TV can bring me. That is the current view slate but among those I have, and am also watching, a load more, but those are my main shows that are indulging my TV addiction.

Two new shows that have provided some amazing comfort in the TV addict department are ‘United States of Tara’ and ‘How to Make It in America’. I find the writing, characters, themes, and performances in United States of Tara truly magnificent. I loved the first season of the show and loving the second season and hope that it carries on throwing punches and delivering a truly high level of television satisfaction. I was a tiny but reluctant about How to Make It in America, but how can I really be with HBO behind this baby, as well as some of the Entourage crew. I loved this show, it is not as hard hitting entertainment as Entourage but has a very unique mature style to it, it has something great about it that I cant quite put my finger on, oh wait yes, its aspiration or inspirational or both and that’s something lacking in television lately.

One last time I want to mention The Office, House, 30 Rock and Lost for feeding my current TV addiction, please keep bringing it on in the amazing way your shows do.
