How come I have not heard of this show before??? My man in Carmel, Steve the Witness, forced me to watch this today and it is brilliant TV. Here’s the set-up for “Weeds“:

After her husband’s unexpected death and subsequent financial woes, suburban mom Nancy Botwin (Mary-Lousie Parker) embraces a new profession: the neighborhood pot dealer. As it seems like everyone secretly wants what she’s selling — even city councilman Doug Wilson — Nancy is faced with keeping her family life in check and her enterprise a secret from her best friend/PTA president, Celia Hodes.

I got hooked on Mary-Louise Parker when she played Amy Gardner in West Wing and it’s great to see her get her own show, especially something as brilliant as this. If you haven’t checked it out, do it.
