Tv Season Info

The dark-humored dramedy about a pot-dealing suburban widow in California opens its inaugural season with Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) dealing with family issues and tangling with a rival pusher. Elsewhere, Nancy's business may go up in smoke when some of her clients obtain medical marijuana cards; Nancy's ne'er-do-well brother-in-law (Justin Kirk) unexpectedly arrives and hopes to crash at her house; and Nancy decides to open a faux bakery as a business front for her dealings. Also in the mix in Season 1: a drive-by shooting; a turf war; and a plan to deal to local college students.


Critic Reviews for Weeds: Season 1

Despite its unique premise, the show delivers little more than network sitcom material tarted up with cable raciness.

The plots veer everywhere from marital betrayal and life-threatening illness to cruel pranks and stoned behavior, but Parker keeps it all grounded. Watch Weeds not for the humor, necessarily, but for her.

I happily watched five hours of Weeds in a row last night-and will continue to follow the series on Showtime-if only because of its two offbeat female leads and writing that's just sharp enough to stay one step ahead of the audience's expectations.

Raising kids (and more...) in the 'burbs. Adults only.

Nancy's money troubles suck the fun out of the show, and Celia's relentlessly nasty behavior is more outrageous than it is funny.

Parker's conflicted, weary mother gives Weeds a solid center, but Perkins and Nealon merrily chomp every scene they're in.
