Last week we talked about a series in which a devoted parent turns to illegal drug sales to make ends meet for the family. Why not continue the theme? For TV Tuesday, we discuss “Weeds,” a series on Showtime created by Jenji Kohan.
While the setup is similar, “Weeds” is almost the opposite of “Breaking Bad.” Whimsical, hilarious, shiny and sexy. It stars Mary-Louise Parker, Elizabeth Perkins, Justin Kirk, Kevin Nealon, Hunter Parrish, and Alexander Gould. The seventh season begins June 27, 2011.
We’re only caught up through season five, with season six on our to-do list. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we know what’s ahead. But we’re enjoying ourselves enough to continue. Are you watching “Weeds”? Did you give up on it? What other shows could fill the same “wickedly fun adult comedy” slot on our TiVo?
