    Everyone should see this! Toni Collette is outstanding! Not only is she Emmy-worthy, she's also Oscar-worthy! But obviously, she's ineligible for the latter.

    this looks so hysterical and brilliant. this premise is really interesting subject manner about a woman with multiple personalities whose family is trying to cope and live normally. and those characters toni plays...all i can say she is brilliant.

    Just watched the first ep and it was good. Will be watching the next one.

    Toni was amazing. Especially as "Buck".

    Having witnessed this mental illness in reality, I have to say it was not at all a laughable situation. I appreciate that the show may humanize people with mental illnesses but I hope they don't veer too heavily to the comedic aspects of the situation. I hope they manage to show a balanced and sensitive account of the disorder.

    Toni was even better in Ep 2 as "Alice".

    I loved when the daughter was being "sassy" to her in the bathroom. The flow between the two was great.

    I've had the wash your mouth out with soap threat but it never happened. Gross.

    I started watching this show, and i have to say i thought i would love it more.But i do like it, mostly i watch it because of the Marshall characther. I think its really ground breaking that they have a gay teen on the show, and there is no fuss, no issues with it from the parents.

    And the actor is sooo good, Marshall is such a cutie, oh and i love his friend Petula (?) in her retro get ups, and fast wit.

    Congrats to Toni for the Emmy.
