Call it sex and the suburbs.
Three weeks ago on United States of Tara, Max (John Corbett), the inordinately patient husband of Tara (Toni Collette), had a one-night stand with a waitress, Pammy (Joey Lauren Adams), putting a chink in his good-guy armor.
"I first read it at a table read and remember screaming out loud, 'You've got to be f---ing kidding me!'" Corbett tells TVGuide.com, adding that writers told him they wanted to shake up Max this season. "That was a big step to let Max to do that. ... A lot of fans [come up to me] and said ...
In one of his well-known speeches Abraham Lincoln declared that a house divided against itself cannot stand a sentiment echoed in tonights episode title and story lines And boy all of our favorite ER docs and nurses were definitely facing some sort of domestic or personal turmoil that spilled over into the workplace And isnt that just the way we like it But first how very Julie Chen of me lets start at the ending I nearly jumped off my couch when Forest Whitaker turned up in that apartment Talk about a bad day After a shift-long snipe fest with Luka Abby has to say goodbye to her friend and mentor Kerry more on that later then finds out that mystery patient Eddie Fred Ward is actually her long-lost father well also come back to that one and ends her day by coming home with her infant son to an over-the-edge stalker It certainly puts my its 11 pm and we are out of milk crisis into perspectiveThough no
