Is the grass really greener on the other side? Yes, and it smells better, too! So when Nancy Botwin (Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker) faces both sudden widowhood and poverty, she's determined to do anything to keep her kids in suburbia, including taking a job as the neighborhood pot dealer. Subversive, satirical and hilarious, the first season of this groundbreaking Showtime hit is guaranteed to spark laughter!

Editor's Note
This intelligent comedy airing on the Showtime Channel stars Mary Louise Parker (ANGELS IN AMERICA) as Nancy Botwin, a recently widowed mother of two who finds herself in difficult financial straits. Her ingenious solution is to become the local pot dealer. Nancy's business really takes off, but she struggles to maintain her normal life and keep her secret from best friend and PTA president Celia (Elizabeth Perkins, BIG, MUST LOVE DOGS). Tonye Patano (LITTLE MANHATTAN) plays Nancy's streetwise dealer, with whom she has a tenuous friendship.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"WEEDS caustically satirizes suburbia while peeking into a fringe family business....Showtime's series deals in a realism that's wincingly close to home." -- Grade: B 07/14/2006 p.68

Rolling Stone
"WEEDS is smart and satirical without ever stopping to cheap stoner slapstick." 11/30/2006 p.98

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Mary-Louise Parker is snark and sass personified....A funky blend of laughs, cultural satire and the odd teary moment." 10/01/2007 p.141

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "A great cast, superlative writing and inventive storylines make WEEDS an illicit delight." 10/01/2007 p.133

DVD Verdict 10 of 10
Showtime lived up to its "no limits" slogan by producing a situation comedy about a soccer mom who deals weed in the suburbs of California. It was a show no major network in their right mind would touch. Weeds is a tough sell from the start with a recently widowed Mary-Louise Parker (HBO's Angels in America, The West Wing) desperately trying to make ends meet for her family by doing something patently illegal. It's a dark subject, but thanks to a game cast, biting satire, and excellent direction the show works despite its distasteful premise...This is definitely a great show complete with excellent acting, wry scripts, and a nice production look that makes it an amazing ride. The critics and the cult followers are right about this one, and I found myself wondering why the show couldn't run head to head against Desperate Housewives. - Brett Cullum
