Weeds is a hilarious Showtime comedy starring Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin, who turns to drug dealing after the demise of her husband. She starts as just a neighborhood drug dealer but soon becomes involved with the Mexican Mafia.

Also, there's nudity.

The trials and tribulations of the Botwin family and hangers-on make fascinating television.

You're also almost guaranteed to have the munchies after.


Weeds is a show that ALMOST makes it worth the extra amount to get premium cable. Netflix makes it more accessible to masses, which is how I first discovered it. Everything about this show is incredible: the casting, the writing, and seemingly limitless ability to reinvent itself.
