Putting the Herb in Suburb

   I thought I should review a comedy show today, something different, for the sake of variety. So, here we are, let's review Weeds.
    First of all, so far I've reviewed 40-60 minute shows, and Weeds' episodes are much shorter - around 30 minutes. Weeds is a weird show, it has a bit of comedy, some drama (don't be thrown back by that) and of course crime. I mean it is a drug-related show, so the crime bit is certain. Our main character Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker which by the way is really hot) is a single mom with 2 kids (which will change), who is selling weed as a main source of profit. So there, from here come the comedy, the drama and the crime bits. But bare with me, this isn't a "How High" stoner comedy (not that it is bad), Nancy (and later her kids) are mostly just selling. Well this is the main plot element  and it doesn't change, our character is always either trying to sell or selling weed.
   It's not all good though, the action through the seasons becomes a bit repetitive after the first several seasons. But after you've gone through that it still is pretty good, it is hilarious, almost every episode will make you laugh out loud or at least smile. We see the characters in loads of ridiculous situations, each one of them has kind of different agenda. We see the rise and fall of the family, the development of characters is a bit non-existant, subtle, especially in our main character Nancy, but I'd say she is just doing what she knows best - sell weed.
   I really don't know what to say for it more than to give it a chance, either ways Mary-Louise Parker is super hot, so there you go another great reason to watch the show, and besides the episodes aren't that long as stated which makes it non-heavy, really good casual show. Peace I'm out.

Andy Botwin: How can you be so blindly pro-Bush?
Doug Wilson: I like his wife Laura... I used to buy weed from her at SMU.

  26. I tried, and I mean really tried to get into this show. The first episode really just turned me off, if you say it's repetitive then I will most likely get bored fast. thanks for the review :D

  28. It was a great show, though I think it's sort of dragged out a bit. Breaking Bad does the same thing better.

    Though Nancy is the hottest MILF on TV.
