The United States of Tara

Louise Brooks is referenced on "The United States of Tara,"  according to a syndicated article about the new television series which airs at 10 pm on Sundays on Showtime.

It's interesting to note that "Tara" was created by Diablo Cody, who wrote the 2007 comedy "Juno." Both "Tara" and "Juno" feature young characters who are wise beyond their years and show off a startling knowledge of pop culture of decades past. Juno was a punk aficionado. Tara's son Marshall offers university-level lectures on the silent films of Louise Brooks and plays Thelonious Monk to drown out T's tantrums.

Has anyone seen this series, and if so, what was said about Brooks?
