Product Description

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.

Amazon.com

The first season of Weeds ended with a shocker: Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) found a dreamy new boyfriend, but he turned out to be a DEA agent (Martin Donovan). Luckily, she manages to find some pretty creative ways to "deal" with it. Despite that new obstacle, she decides it’s also time to "grow" the business to higher levels, and all these risky moves lead up to another fabulous season finale cliff-hanger. Elsewhere in suburban utopia, comic relieving brother-in-law Andy (Justin Kirk) tries to dodge his army commitments by joining Rabbi school, while the hilarious Doug (Kevin Nealon) battles it out with Celia (Elizabeth Perkins) to maintain power over the Agrestic City Council. Plot aside, Season 2 of Weeds took this potentially great show to the next level. No matter how hard they tried in the first season, the show’s makers had a heck of a time trying to shake the impression that they were mimicking the edginess of HBO’s original programming. (Some might have gone as far as to say they were trying a little too hard.) This time around, the characters and the story have grown into their own skins, and they offer something much more authentic and convincing. The second season also starts a great new tradition: Malvina Reynolds ‘s "Little Boxes" is still the opening theme song, but it is performed by a different artist for each episode (from Elvis Costello to The Shins). Just one more thing to keep us "addicted." --Jordan Thompson

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific drama June 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Yes, it's a drama all right, despite the half-hour format. The tone of its second season reminds me more than anything of the venerable "Six Feet Under": it's extremely funny, and extremely smart, and it moves from ultra-dry sitcom territory into much darker places (and back) without warning or apology.

"Weeds" casts its satirical throwing stars in 360 degrees. While drug warriors get their well-justified comeuppance, we more libertarian types don't get off exactly scot-free. Just the right medicine when it comes to a debate that's been all but shut down in more mainstream circles.

Not that you need to have an opinion about pot politics to enjoy the razor-sharp dialogue or, failing that, Mary-Louise Parker's big brown eyes and diabolical deadpan delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars This series is addicting, no pun intended. May 24, 2007
Format:DVD
I love the television series WEEDS on Showtime.

It's great! Why? Well... it has a variety of factors that make it good, one being the casting. The entire cast of this show helps make what it is, a great drama.

The plot is obviously a bit risque but it draws you in and begs to be tollerated. After a while, you get intrigued in the storylines and get hooked on the suspense. Every now and then, you get a lil bit of sadness and or romance to trigger up some emotions. Otherwise, your rooting with either laughter or applauding the extreme efforts some of the cast members go to just make it.

The story does not just evolve around Mary Louise Parker but other charachters as well. Therefore you are not drowned down with one single plot but multiple storylines that play well within eachother.

If you are looking for a edgy new aged series to plop down one weekend and engulf yourself in, this show has got to be it.

You'll be rooting for more after the end of each episode. Only if they made the episodes longer. You don't want it to end. But, when it does... you come down from your high and await the next series.

This is certainly not a show for those under 18 but for adults, it brings you into a level of great television but with a cinematic view.

Buy it, rent it, watch it!

3.0 out of 5 stars An ultra-cynical exposé of suburban life February 2, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Like Little Children, American Beauty, and Edward Scissorhands, Weeds portrays a planned community as a forgotten circle of Dante's Inferno. Suburban life really isn't the gated paradise the brochures from the housing committee promise; rather, it's a cesspool of petty people with too much money and nothing to do with their lives. We've see these kinds of shows and movies before. What's unique about Weeds is that there really aren't any sympathetic characters. Even the children in the show come off as selfish demons (who seem far too wise and ironic for their respective ages). The cast is superb. The things they do and say make you alternately cringe, laugh, and open your mouth wide to say, "He did not just do that!" And it's worth mentioning that the end credits to each episode generally feature a very funny and sometimes dirty folk or pop song that serves as an audio metaphor for the entire episode. I enjoy the show's attempt to tell a quirky and increasingly unrealistic tale that must be a tremendous challenge for the writers.

On the other hand, the show doesn't evolve much further than a writer's delight: So much of the dialogue is simply a stream of creative, new curse words and phrases. These start off as shocking and funny, but the veneer wears thin when you realize that it's just a device to divide your attention from the fact that very little is happening in the show, because all of the characters are made of the same selfish mold. It reminds me of how Family Guy uses the same device in nearly episode: Something happens and Peter will be reminded of the time when he [fill in the blank], and the show proceeds to randomize the plot with a barely relevant flashback. Again, funny for a while, but it gets old fast.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Season Turns Darker, and Better March 2, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I haven't subscribed to Showtime in years, so I came to this party late. I bought the first season on a recommendation, and while I liked it a good bit, it seemed all a bit transparent. It was too self-consciously quirky for it to get a hook deep in. Characters are given droll dialogue that skims personalities, leaving out anything that couldn't be exploited for oddness. It's the standard juxtaposition of relaxed hipness against the staid pettiness of self-righteousness, an in-your-face mockery of mainstream values already gainsaid by the basic naughtier truth. Sometimes the stories went out of their way to find the most shocking scenario, skidding to a stop just short of offending anybody who might mount an effective complaint, even daring to show a nearly prepubescent girl locked in a lesbian puppy-love embrace. This could be mistaken by the easily titillated for avant-garde television. It doesn't seem so out-there to me, but is instead just plain fun to watch. So by season's end, I concluded that the series was likable and entertaining, but unremarkable. It finished with Nancy's business plan fully detailed, down to a division of labor. Without a cliffhanger finale it felt complete and I didn't hurry to find out what happened next. When I noticed this economically priced Complete Second Season on Blu-ray, there was no reason not to follow Nancy's further adventures as TVs most enterprising MILF.

The second season maintained the brisk pace of the first, the dialogue still distinguished by the skippy style.

Widescreen!
Amen to that. Season 1 was broadcast in HDTV, and then they made a 4x3 DVD - trashing a really fine Series. I've heard there will finally be a Widescreen Season 1, but you'll have to plunk down for Blueray.

Weeds Season 2 All Regions?
The Season 2 BluRay is definitely All Region. Showtime deliberately made Season 4 Region A only because of trying to sell the series abroad but until then they are fine... and your PS3 plays BluRays :)

If you like Weeds, then check out Hairy Pothead
For a senior citizen version of Weeds in book format, I liked "Betty's Little Basement Garden." It's a coming of age story about a women in her late 50s. This book would make a great TV series.
