From Amazon.co.uk

With its fantastic comedy series Weeds, cable network Showtime finally gave up its also-ran status to HBO and found itself with a controversial, buzz-worthy show that was as hilarious as it was dark, one about a truly desperate housewife. A recent widow with two growing sons, Nancy Botwin (Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker) looks like a typical resident of the affluent Southern California suburb of Agrestic. She keeps a clean, upscale house (with the help of a live-in maid), attends PTA meetings, goes to her kids' soccer games, makes frequent stops at the local coffee franchise.... and sells marijuana in order to make it all possible. Left with no way to support herself after her beloved husband's fatal heart attack, Nancy turns herself into the "suburban baroness of bud," dealing to her neighbors in the area, with the help of her supplier Heylia (Tonye Patano) and point man Conrad (Romany Malco). Nancy's clients run from the local councilman (Kevin Nealon) to the just-barely-legal students at the local community college, but many in Agrestic are still in the dark as to how she keeps her family afloat, including her best friend, the sardonic Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), a wife and mother whose blistering, withering put-downs could make Dorothy Parker cringe in fear. But like many small-business owners, Nancy yearns for more success and cash, and like her workaholic neighbors, finds keeping a balance between work life and home life to be extremely precarious at best.

While Desperate Housewives yearned to be a suburban satire with bite, Weeds was the real deal, skewering upper-middle class mores with a sharp eye, a keen wit, and a mostly forgiving heart. In episode after episode, the show's creative team (led by creator Jenji Kohan) pulled back the layers of Agrestic's superficiality to show what lies beneath the squeaky-clean exteriors and smiling faces; it turns out that hunger, fear, desire, and, yes, desperation aren't that far down. However, Weeds forsakes pulpiness and florid drama for biting yet affectionate humor - its heroine is a woman with sliding morals, but one you'll root for to the very end. The effervescent Parker, the only actress who can mix perkiness with morbidity in just the right amounts, anchored the show with her amazing turn as Nancy, who by the end of the first season had become a kind of soccer-mom version of Michael Corleone, entering a corrupt world with both trepidation and fascination - and totally enamoured of the power it brought her. Also perfectly cast, Perkins found the role of a lifetime as the bitterly hilarious Celia, and entering the show in its fourth episode, Justin Kirk (Parker's co-star in Angels in America) proved to be a potent secret weapon as Nancy's brother-in-law Andy, a slacker who wasn't above peddling t-shirts to elementary school kids. As icky as these characters might appear on the surface, Weeds made them all immensely appealing and great company to be around. Don't say we didn't warn you: one hit and you'll be hooked on this show. The DVDs feature six episode commentaries with cast and crew, out-takes, original featurettes, a music video, and most enjoyably, Agrestic Herbal Recipes (for entertainment value only, we assume) and the "Smoke and Mirrors" marijuana mockumentary. --Mark Englehart

5.0 out of 5 stars Drug free high 9 July 2011
By S. Broadbent VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of "Weeds" and just took a chance that i might enjoy it.
The best way to sum up my view of this show is that after 3 episodes i bought series 2,3,&4.
Having now seen 1,2,&3 i can say that this show is actually addictive.
As other reviews describe the premise of "Weeds" i will simply state that this show is both funny and dramatic.
There are some really black moments that will either surprise or even possibly shock you. The change fom a typical all
American Mom to butt kicking Drug dealer is well written and believable. I am licking my lips in anticipation at series 4 & hope Weeds will coninue.
This is a diamond of a show. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Put aside your preconceptions 18 Oct 2007
By Robert Frampton VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This gem of a show from US cable should be high on your 'must see' list. If it's not, is it because it's (ostensibly) about an all-American mom surviving her bereavement by selling pot, perchance? Tish and pish!
Mary Louise Parker (surely one of the sexiest women on the planet... oh, and also one of the best actors on US TV) gives a superb performance, elevating already brilliantly written scripts to a level of black comedy rarely seen on British TV. Each half hour episode runs the gamut from phone sex with a deaf girl, through setting up a fake bakery (a 'fakery' if you will) to shooting marauding mountain lions in the face. Oh, and you'll laugh too.
To complement this, Elizabeth Pekins's performance as the sexually-frustrated, bitchy, PTA president mom-from-hell almost steals the show.
Bring on series 2 right now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark US Comedy 15 Aug 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought Weeds not knowing anything about it other than the basic premise - suburban wife and mother takes to weed dealing after husband dies. I wasn't that impressed by the pilot episode but stuck with it and have been pleasantly surprised. The characters are allowed to develop nicely and although I wouldn't say that there are many out and out bits of hilarity it is gently comedic. It is quite dark in places and the only downside I can say is that occasionally some of the dialogue feels like it is deliberately trying to be crass or shocking. Overall though I would recommend it for anyone who likes comedy dramas.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE: you will get addicted to Weeds!!! 5 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
Her husband dies of a heart attack while jogging and Nancy is left as a stay-at-home mom with two sons, a huge house, leased car, and no income. The solution to this conundrum: Nancy becomes the drug dealer of choice for inhabitants of lovely, suburban Agrestic.

The stroll down a tight rope high in the circus tent has only just begun for Nancy as she tries to balance an business (selling weed and a bakery/fakery), her family (sexually active teenage son and 11-year-old son grieving out loud plus slagger brother-in-law), and of course her lively neighbours including Chairman of the PTA, a very creative accountant, and her supplier.

Oh yes!! "Weeds" is hilarious!!! Be prepared to laugh and cry when you watch the series.

Louise.
