Addicted to Weeds

Weeds has quickly become one of my all time favourite tv programmes. I’d actually rate it somewhere up there with BuffyLost, and even America’s Next Top Model. But don’t let that put you off – I also like ‘cool’ shows like The Wire and Band of Brothers and ….. ok so that’s about all the cool shows I like but trust me on this: Weeds is a very, very, decent programme.

It stars Mary Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin, a widowed mother of two living in the leafy suburbs of Agresso. Left alone to raise Silas and Shane, she turns to pot dealing to keep up with the never-ending bills. This in turn leads to many off-the-wall crises where the pretty suburban mom has to use her charms and wit to get out of some seriously sticky situations. The show has a dark, dark sense of humour dealing with issues such as cancer, drug addiction, drug dealing (!), torture, the crazy-ass US military – and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head – but it deals with them with such great wit and timing that you can’t help laughing along. And then realising you are soooo going to hell.

The actors are supremely funny, especially Mary Louise Parker who I have to admit to having the biggest lady-crush on ever. She has a perfect sense of comic timing, and is utterly believable in her various acts of despair, anger and lust. Oh the lust!

The episodes are short and easy to digest at roughly 25 minutes long. The seasons are relatively short also with about 12 to 13 episodes in each. I’ve just finished re-watching season 4 and was delighted to read that season 5 is airing on the 8th of June after an extremely interesting cliff-hanger.

If you haven’t watched any of Weeds before, I’d highly recommend it (can’t you tell!) and it’s quite easy to pick up on, even if you don’t know the back stories. It’s worth watching for Mary Louise Parker alone – I dare you not to fall in love with her.

Roll on season 5!

I’m not usually a massive American Idol fan.  I’ve always found the young hopeful’s quests for stardom a bit too desperate sometimes and it lacks the humour of X Factor (apparent from the required ‘whacky’ auditionees at the beginning of every season – they’re even more ‘whacky’ in the States o’course).

But this year, I’ve been kind of following it through the repeats on TV3 on lazy Saturdays and one lucky afternoon, I flicked on to this girl:

She’s sixteen years of age. Six.Teen. Her voice is pure gorgeous and as the classic line goes, she could sing the phonebook. I think, bar Leona Lewis maybe, she’s the only ever person I’ve seen on a reality programme like this, that I’ve actually wanted to buy their album. I want her album now. Right now.

Simon, mind that girl please, she’s a talented ‘un!

EDIT: YouTube and WordPress are not my friends :( I posted this ages ago, sauntered off happily and the video never published. Boourns. Fingers crossed it’s up now!



Stephen Fry on Jonathan Ross on Twitter

I’m very new to all this Twitter business. Keep forgetting I actually have an account (http://twitter.com/Anneelicious, if you’re interested) but I have to say, I can see how it could become fairly addictive.  Especially if you’re following Stephen Fry whilst he’s on Jonathon Ross.

It’s all a bit surreal really!



I have only one episode of The Wire left to watch
