Just remembered I still had a write up to do. Oops!
Sorry for anyone who’s a big fan, but it’s really getting hard as we’re getting down to it. This is also going to be a pretty vague write-up since I may still watch the show at some point so I don’t want to delve too deep into the plot specifics for this
Weeds is a show that aired on Showtime for 8 seasons from 2005-2012 and starred Mary Louise Parker, Justin Kirk, Hunter Parrish, Alexander Gould , and Kevin Nealon. It focuses on Nancy, who is a single mother to two boys (Silas and Shane) after her husband dies of a heart attack. In order to maintain the financial lifestyle they were used to, Nancy turns to selling marijuana. In the beginning, she runs a small operation, only selling to friends and neighbors. As the show goes on and her business expands, she winds up getting entangled with some pretty dangerous people. The show follows her as she tries to stay ahead of the game protecting herself, her business, and her children. She has run ins with a Mexican cartel, and various members of law enforcement throughout the show’s run.
Apparently, Starz is working on a reboot that would take place 10 years after the events of the finale. So far the only info I found was that it was in the works, and Mary Louise Parker is on board. So that’s a possibility in the future.
Mary Louise Parker has been praised for her work on the show (and I believe won a few awards for it). Reviews for the show overall are also quite good. Like most shows, the ratings seemed to peak in the early seasons then drop off slightly as time went on. It does look like reviews were overall favorable for the entire run. This does look like a show I would be interested in, and it seems to have a similar feel to Breaking Bad which I love. Again, sorry to anyone who’s a super huge fan. And feel free to expand upon this write up if you’d like
