ANITA GATTIS, MISSING TARA GRINSTEAD ` S SISTER: Well, Nancy, we had heard early on about neighbors of Tara ` s who saw a dark vehicle in her yard early Monday morning when they went to the convenient store.
I almost want to just pretend the tara thing isn’t happening until she’s gone but I can’t .. it’s not fair to Ali or to Gareth and most of all to Tara.
I suppose Tara is only on season 2 and Jackie also.
Tara is currently staying with her aunt, uncle, and cousins and preparing to enter 10th grade.
Anyways, Tara is probably going to be the next Mother Theresa.
The first six - eps really followed the first book but then it began to branch out, especially where human characters are concerned -- Tara is quite different from the book, pretty much completely different actually, and much more interesting on the show.
For example, The United States of Tara is an ineffective title for a show about a character with split personalities.
But because Tara is a pay-cable show limited to 13 episodes, her family had to relocate from Australia for only a few months.
I think Tara is my fave character on the show … Lafayette has to be my second fave.
Other stuff happens, such as some freaky v-sex, telepathy time, and learning that Sookie's BFF Tara is mean, rude, and wholly unlikeable (that was a bit hard to write considering that's the Girlfriend's name).
