Looking Good....

Just finished watching the season premier of Showtime's Weeds. If you haven't seen Weeds, it's about Nancy, a suburban housewife-come widow, who takes to selling pot in order to support her family after her husband dies of a heart attack. She doesn't exactly like what she does, but she's good at it.
The show is hilarious in a bitter-sweet sort of way. Nancy's interactions with other people in the community (and often the interactions between other community members) provide most of the comedy. However Nancy's struggle to keep her family and her life from completely coming apart at the seems is the real heart of the show. It's the combination of those elements which makes Weeds a must see.
In fact, I dare you to try it. No peer pressure though. But you'll thank me later.
