Review: Weeds 101 – 103

Another strange series coming from Showtime, it’s a half hour dramedy about a single mom dealing in weeds to make a decent living for her and her two sons. Set in the suburbs, it creates a nice gossipy atmosphere while everything from school to parenting problems to relationship problems pass to fill the stories. The whole thing has a weird feeling to it, mixing drama with a strange sense of comedy, but headlining the show is Mary-Louise Parker, who seems to have never had a normal “sane” role, ever (also slightly psychotic in last years the Angels in America mini-series). Of course, her being the hottest 41-year women on this earth helps a lot too (she doesn’t look a day older than thirty !). For now, it’s definitely a keeper, so let’s hope the high doesn’t wear off anytime soon.
