Weeds is a U.S. television series created by Jenji Kohan, starring Mary-Louise Parker, produced by Lionsgate Television for Showtime, and airing on networks around the world. The plot revolves around a widowed housewife (played by Parker) from an affluent California suburb who becomes her neighborhood's marijuana dealer to make ends meet. The title is a play on words, referring to both the slang term for marijuana, and widow's weeds.
It currently comprises four seasons that began airing in August 2005. It was the highest rated series for Showtime its first year; its fourth-season premiere attracted 1.3 million viewers to Showtime, that channel's highest-ever viewership.
Anyone watch it? im like seriously addicted to it.
Mary-Louise Parker plays the role of Nancy Botwin perfectly and she's hot too^^
As a widowed housewife trying to maintain an upper class lifestyle for herself and her two sons by selling weed, she obviously encounters problems maintaining her two roles....mother and drug dealer
at the same time as being entertaining and hilarious.
some of the characters like andy and doug wilson just make me rofl so much.
I could watch this show all day.
I kind of fell off during the fourth season. Early on it just felt like it was dragging on what with the dying grandmother-in-law and the douchebag father-in-law watching her. I'm debating whether or not I should catch up, but as for now I'll answer that when I'm done with Criminal Minds/Dexter for this season. Why? Because TV-Links is back and once again, I've got all the time in the world.
But yeah, I wouldn't hesitate to say seasons 1-3 were awesome.
Still, I continue to maintain that Dead Like Me was Showtime's greatest show in this past decade.
In Ragnarok Online, I was once known as Athero, a noble Lord Knight whose only wish was that he swung his sword for a just cause.
TrueSilverFox and Mon_Ami roamed Caballa together in Trickster Online, searching its ruins of splendor.
Valeria, sworn only to her sword and herself, traverses Erinn in Mabinogi with her pet silver fox, Truesilver.
"Whoa, TrueSilverFox, girl! Anyone ever tell you you look like some sun-bronzed Greek Goddess these days?"
