Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Few TV shows last year generated as much water-cooler buzz as this Showtime series about a suburban Southern California housewife who takes to dealing marijuana to make ends meet. The appealing, underrated Mary-Louise Parker plays Nancy Botwin, a suddenly widowed soccer mom with no marketable skills, who begins selling pot to avoid becoming, as she puts it, "the oldest Gap employee in Southern California."

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Few TV shows last year generated as much water-cooler buzz as this Showtime series about a suburban Southern California housewife who takes to dealing marijuana to make ends meet. The appealing, underrated Mary-Louise Parker plays Nancy Botwin, a suddenly widowed soccer mom with no marketable skills, who begins selling pot to avoid becoming, as she puts it, "the oldest Gap employee in Southern California." The ten episodes of Season 1 establish this premise as it introduces Nancy's circle of acquaintances -- including best friend and neighbor Celia Hodes Elizabeth Perkins, another fine, underrated actress and city councilman Doug Wilson Saturday Night Live alumnus Kevin Nealon. There's a lot of subversive humor here, much of it generated by Nancy's newfound dedication to entrepreneurship in a decidedly illegal endeavor. But Weeds goes further than that: It's another in the progression of movies and TV series dedicated to the proposition that neatly trimmed lawns and well-maintained houses conceal suburbia's moral decay. Nancy's criminal activities thus are made to seem wholly defensible and relatively harmless, and certainly less egregious than the offenses of her hypocritical, posturing neighbors. That's a dicey premise, but Weeds gets away with it because the series boasts sharp writing and impeccable performances.
