Fun plot, I don't tell my mom about it because of language and sex. Actors fit their roles perfectly. Can't wait to see what trouble they get into next. Read More

Product Overview

Funnier, darker and more daring, the second season of this acclaimed Showtime series reaches a higher ground. Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker stars as Nancy Botwin, the soccer mom who had to learn how to deal - pot, that is - after the death of her husband. Now, her business is a hit. But keeping up with the neighbors in this suburban utopia isn't easy. She's joined up with a few of her closest friends, and together they're facing life's highs and lows - because even in paradise, nobody's perfect. Don't miss Weeds, an addictive comedy, the highest grade TV has to offer.

Editors Note
Note The suburbs have never been darker or funnier than in this buzz-worthy series from Showtime. To the outside world, Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker, ANGELS IN AMERICA) appears to be an average mom still recovering from the death of her husband. But making a living as a single mom is tough, so Nancy does the most logical thing...and becomes a pot dealer. Surrounded by her cannabis-craving accountant (Kevin Nealon, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE), her scheming friend (Elizabeth Perkins, BIG), and her slacker brother-in-law (Justin Kirk, FLANNEL PAJAMAS), Nancy attempts to support her family without arousing suspicion from the cops or her neighbors. In the acclaimed second season, her job gets that much harder when she discovers that her new boyfriend (Martin Henderson, SAVED!) is a DEA agent. Season two shows that the series has some famous fans with music's best singing the show's hilarious theme song, "Little Boxes," including Elvis Costello, Death Cab for Cutie, Jenny Lewis, and Regina Spektor. This release includes the second season in its entirety, including cast commentaries, trivia, and bloopers.
Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "Season 1 of Showtime's addictive comedy hooked us. With Season 2, we become seriously dependent, as the series descended into intriguingly murky territory." -- Grade: B 07/27/2007 p.55

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review 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.
