"Weeds" is an excellent show with clever humor, hot social issues, and engaging characters. Some reviewers have pointed out that the characters are hypocritical and not very likeable, but that's what gives them complexity and makes them interesting. "Full House" this is not. That aside, the general tone of the series is not terribly serious, so however you feel about drugs and the actions of Nancy and the other characters, it's still a quite enjoyable and fun show.

I felt that since the producers of this DVD did not see fit to release the episodes in their original aspect ratio, that was worth knocking off a good two points. It's often easy to tell that things are framed too closely here. It's incomprehensible why they would not release the best possible version on DVD, especially when they expect people to pay for them. The set does include some interesting extras and featurettes. I also listened to all the commentaries, and what annoyed me were those of show creator Jengi Kohan--on her tracks she sounds as though she's coming out of anesthesia. I just want to scream at her "SPEAK UP!" So if you're into commentaries, pretty much skip hers (the ones for the pilot and the season finale), as "mumble mumble mumble mumble" is hardly an insight.

The pilot opens almost mid-story it seems, acclimating you to the characters and their interpersonal dysfunctions subtlety and sparingly. The richness and vibrancy of the characters makes it "ok" that you don't get all the nitty-gritty details of why and when and how things started- you feel as if you know these people and will continue to learn about their why's, when's and how's as the "plot thickens" in season 2.

A fascinating exploration of suburban life- so common, easily identified with and yet totally beneath the surface. Of course it is dramatized, but after living in OC for over 10 years I can testify to the validity. The premise of this show is a terrific commentary on what suburbia has done to humanity as people try to make sure that all their "Little Boxes" stay the same. Our HOA recently sent letters to residents who were unfortunate enough to have brown spots in their lawns. I live in the desert and it's been unseasonably hot across the nation- but the semblance of normalcy must be protected in suburbia. They may want to worry about the growth patterns of a different type of grass in our quiet little neighborhood.

I admire the main character, Nancy, who judges none and accepts tragedy and criticism both with grace and dignity. When a fellow mom and friend attacks her parenting by citing a book on parenting she is not baited by the comment, but retorts with an amusing grin and wryly delivered, "Wow, Celia. (effective pause) I didn't know you read books." The timing and rapport between these two characters is pure magic-the steel magnolias of the "soccer mom" set.

From the world of a professional herbalist and addict of amazingly written anything, film, shows, books...I find Weeds to be one of those things in life that I just can't live without. Not only are the actors extremely well cast in their roles, but the plot and dialog go wayyyy beyond the bump and grind life of a suburban widow drug dealer. I often find myself yelping with joy (alongside my neighbor since we get together every Monday at 10:00 to watch the latest episode)...then running to the office the next day to spread the word about Weeds.

In a world of trash television like American Idol, and Desperate Housewives, it's not only refreshing to be enlightened with such a cool antecdote to life's monotany, but also mandatory.

This one surely won't go up in smoke, unless of course you're just sharing the gift of the earth.

First off, I have to admit that I've loved Mary-Louise Parker for a long time, so I'm probably going to like any thing she's in.

That said, every one I've known who's watched this show has loved it. It's funny and somewhat realistic. The premise is that Parker is a recently widowed mom living in an expensive LA suburb. To make ends meet she sells marijuana to her white, middle-class neighbors after buying it from a black family in a less affluent area.

This show is witty, sexy, and compelling. If you watch about 3 episodes you'll be hooked. The cast is excellent. In addition to Parker in the lead role, you also have Elizabeth Perkins as the snooty neighbor/friend, Romany Malco (from The Forty Year Old Virgin) as one of her suppliers, and Kevin Nealon as her main client/CPA/city councilman.

The first ten episode follow Parker as he grows her business while trying to raise her two sons. Along the way she has run ins with her competition and the law. Plus she has to deal with her brother-in-law showing up and causing some extra problems.

It's a great show and it has a lot in common with "Big Love," "Desperate Housewives," "Six Feet Under," or any other show that tries to point out the stranger side of life.
