Parker turns in a performance bubbling over with vitality and believability, even when the script itself strains credulity or when individual lines of dialogue slip too much into sitcom punch lines and rhythms.
The show needs an actress as talented as Parker to ground it all and bring together the seemingly random elements, and she rises to the occasion in a big way.
The second season is a much better trip, light-fingered but more assured at teasing out the mundane absurdities of life... But the best thing from Season 1 remains the same: Mary-Louise Parker.
Not funny enough to prompt a hearty guffaw, but now and then worthy of an appreciative chuckle, Weeds is still fun, still thought-provoking, still smarter and more grown-up than most network comedy series.
