United States of Tara & Nurse Jackie: Back in March



With Dexter, Californication and Weeds between seasons, Showtime is currently coasting on slighter fare like Tracy Ullman's State of the Union (passable), Secret Diary of a Call Girl (surprisingly lively in its third season) and La La Land (Ali G-lite filler). Where's the meat? ---
