Is the grass really greener on the other side? Yes, and it smells better too! Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed award-winning TV comedy drama Weeds is back as it follows the highs and lows of ‘dealing’ with life in the suburbs. Funnier, darker and breaking more rules than ever before, the second season of Weeds sees the return of the brilliant cast led by Golden Globe® winner* Mary-Louise Parker (The West Wing, Fried Green Tomatoes) who plays Nancy Botwin, the suburban mother of two who had to learn how to deal – pot that is – after the death of her husband. Now, her business is a hit, but keeping up with the neighbours in this suburban utopia isn’t easy. She’s joined up with a few of her closest friends and together they’re facing life’s highs and lows – because even in paradise, nothing is perfect.
With sex and drugs, the only thing missing from this idyllic suburbia is the rock ‘n’ roll! But even that gets covered with a special guest appearance by Snoop Dogg. Nancy and her partners in crime reset the bar for what is meant by ‘desperate housewives’ as things spin out of. Friendships are made and broken, and love is lost and found so get set for the ‘trip’ of a lifetime and follow the twist and turns that this sensational series delivers.

The series follows Nancy's journey from being a victim of circumstance, into a confident women earning her own money and providing for her family. Along the way she meets various larger than life characters that help show her the ropes and build her business.
The series is described as a comedy, but I would say it fits more in the drama genre, with a vein of black comedy (it reminds me of Six Feet Under : Complete HBO Season 1 [DVD]). There are many heart wrenching moments that deal with tragedy, financial, and family problems - then all of sudden you can start laughing. It shows how well it is written to be able to provoke such opposing emotions in one episode.
An enjoyable series that highlights the lengths people will go to to provide and protect their families.
BTW - once you listen to the theme tune, it will be stuck in your head for days!
a little naughtier in a way, I bought the existing 5 seasons after finishing the first 2 and am still not disappointed.
