Default Weeds - Season Five DVD Review

It started with the latte sipping soccer mom selling a little marijuana to make ends meet at home, and now it has become an international family led drug cartel. It is none other than the hit Showtime comedy series, Weeds, now back for the fifth season on DVD.

Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) started as a well-meaning soccer mom who knew the secret to keeping her family finances in order: she had to sell pot. But as the series has grown, she has found that being a small-time drug dealer leads to more complicated situations and even forces her into growing her own business. She sells the drugs to give her children, Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould), a better life, but by now, they are both finding themselves working with her and putting their own lives at risk.

But at the end of season 4, a little plot twist occurred that meant some changes to Nancy’s family life. In the process of running pot across the Mexican border, Nancy found herself getting involved romantically with a powerful Mexican politician, Esteban Reyes (Demian Bichir), and it is revealed at the end of season four that Nancy is going to have his child. Meanwhile, Andy (Justin Kirk) thinks that he has finally found the way for the family to escape their drug dealing ways, but Nancy’s pregnancy somewhat puts a kink in this perfect plan. This sets up much of the fifth season, which focuses on Nancy’s pregnancy and the changes resulting in the family dynamics.

Blockbsuter must have tons of them because it came out one day, i put ion on my queue, and got all three dvds the next. Watched them Sat & Sunday.

Love that show but it freaks me out a little. Certainly not typical.
