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!

It’s mean, pretty tasteless,  sometimes NSFW, but it makes me laugh and that is all that matters…. right?



Alone

I’m returning to blogging by thieving someone else’s post:

“I’m alone because you’re more alone in an unhappy relationship than you really ever are without a relationship at all.”

It’s a post very worthwhile thieving though, by a Huffington post writer on why she’s still single after her husband died ten years ago. I’m admirable of her strength, independence, and laid back attitude. And she’s funneh to boot.

PS. Thanks all for the well wishes below; I luff you!

… and neither is Barb Dwyer, Paige Turner or – my personal fave – Les Plack (a dentist from San Fransisco).

According to the good ould Beeb these are all real people who, methinks, must have had some really strange and/or humorous parents.

I’ll have to judge any potential future husbands by their surname if I’m going to have any fun naming our sprogs!
