    Has anyone else checked out this series on Showtime? It's shaping up to be a great show. Touching, funny, and infinitely fascinating to a sociologist at heart, like me.

    it's a good premise, it's basically this creative family woman has multiple personality syndrome, and when she gets stressed she becomes someone else. She has I think 3 regular "Alters". Alice is like a Valley of the Dolls type homemaker from hell, Buck is rugged redneck man (who has most of the funniest scenes I've seen so far) and T is a promiscuous and annoying 16 year old. There's also a feral unnamed new Alter emerging as the show goes on, a nameless poncho-wearing rubber-booted menace who pees on unwelcome family members in the night.

    It's obviously a very quirky show with really good characters and from what I've seen pretty good performances throughout.

    Have you seen the season finale yet? I just watched it last night. I thought there was a good reveal and I can't wait for the second season.

    Now I have to wait for Dexter to start again. *sigh* Dexter rules.
