Has anyone been following Weeds it looks just like my kind of show. It's in 3rd season and I never heard of it before, waah!

It's terrific, from the intro that revives the 'ticky-tack houses' ballad to Mary-Louise Parker's faux-naive character.  'Weeds' is to this decade what the sitcom Mary Hartman, Mary Hartmanwas to the 1970's.  Toe, the first two seasons are available for rental.

Never heard of it. I think I'll look into seeing what a subscription to HBO costs - I've seen some of their shows on TMN, and they've all been good.

Weeds can also be found on showcase . . . at least it could awhile ago.

I watched it a couple of times (my SO enjoys it), but I found it somehow grated on my nerves.  Perhaps I am expecting realism where I should just be looking for entertainment.

Selling dope is nothing like the show portrays, maybe that's it.  Seems like such a "lark" on TV, so different from any type of reality.

I think I am getting crankier by the day - soon I won't even be able to stand myself :annoyed:

Yeah I get that, but my reality sucks most of the time, so I love this kind of shit, the more ridiculous it is, the more I'll be LMAO!

It's a send-up of those US 'upper-middle-class' suburban communities in the South-West.  The dope-peddling is a metaphor for barely-legal get-rich-quick pyramid schemes, I think.

The only time I am unable to stand myself is when I reek.

I really like the show although i haven't watched that many episodes.  But i'm not so sure its a metaphor for anything, i think selling pot can be just like that.  I think its catch is just how normal selling pot can be and the juxtaposition of this woman maintaining her suburban lifestyle in such a non-traditional way.

Fifty years ago I took swimming lessons at the old Ottawa YMCA, and nude swimming was the rule -  never understood why, but that may have turned me off the idea of skinny dipping completely. I very much doubt that rule is in effect today.
There's no YMCA in Ottawa now.  The YM/YWCA pool facilities do not allow nude swimming.
