It is that time of the week again, it is time for TV Rewind. TV Rewind is where I take a look back at some of the shows that rant on the air any more, (you can check out some of the other TV Rewinds here) Well this week we are looking at a show theta finished up in 2012, Weeds. Not a lot of people might have heard of Weeds as it was showing on Sky Atlantic when the channel first launched but it only showed up to season 6. Netflix has not got it available in Ireland either, which is a pity because it was a very good show.
The show centres around a suburban mother who’s husband passes away and she start falling behind on her bills. So as she doesn’t get through out of her house she starts dealing weed. and with help of some of her crack pot neighbours. As you would think she dose piss a lot of people of which her new job and as each season goes on the story just more strange but at the same time you can believe that it all was happing.
One of the main reasons I like Weeds is because of the lead lady Mary-Louise Parker. This was not the first show that I have seen her in as she was also in one of my favourite show ever The West Wing. She is very strong actress that can hold a show by herself but in weeds this is not the case as she has a strong supporting cast in the form of Justin Kirk and Kevin Nealon as her brother in-law and lawyer. This comedy drama is not people that blush at the sound of bad language as it is full of it as well as other things so in other words don’t let the kids watch it with ya.
An other thing I loved about this show was the storytelling and how they got from one place to the other and all the stuff they had to deal with in-between from rival drug dealers to a Mexican Cartel all the while being on the run from the FBI. From start to finish it is a show that you can’t take your eyes off and if you haven’t seen it before then it is defiantly worth a look.
