4.0 out of 5 stars An edgy dramedy- 3 1/2 stars, February 1, 2007
This review is from: Weeds: Season 1 (DVD)
At first galnce, Weeds may not be for everyone. And it's not. People may feel a little uneasy about the subject matter. However this is a show that will be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates good acting and good storylines.

The main focus of Weeds centers around Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker). She's a widowed mother of two who supports her family by being the local pot dealer. As I said earlier people may shy away of this show because of that, and while it is the main storyline of the show, it's not the only one. I found myself enjoying it more than any reason for the fantastic acting of Parker. She nails this character. Everything about her is believeable. Though you can't base a show good on one actor alone, this one has plenty of fine actors.

Another character I loved was Celia. She is played by Elizabeth Perkins and let me say this show could easily revolve around her if the writers wanted it to. She has the acting chops, great lines, a good story, a very enjoyable addition to the show. SNL fans will be happy to see Kevin Nealon in the cast as well. I'm not a huge Nealon fan and I honestly don't think he brings much to his role. However he is a big name and that adds to the overall quality to the show.

This is a short season, only 10 episodes, but the story moves along nicely and will have you interested in seeing season 2 with it's great cliffhanger. Don't hesistate to see this show. I wasn't blown away with it though. It wasn't as witty as I heard it would be, not as funny as I thought it would be but one thing that surprised me was how deep you go into each characters story, and that's saying a lot with a short season.

While I feel this season could have been better, it makes up for what it lacks in the drama and character development department. You won't be disappointed.
