My hubby used to surprise me with gifts when he comes home from work. The current surprise is the complete 4-Seasons of the American dark comedy television series entitled "THE WEEDS"
I can't come to our Hong Kong office without a passport.. So here I am enjoying my blogging time and yes, my WEEDS. You must get one too, just make sure the children are not around. The plot is kind of un-friendly to children and as wikipedia said, weeds is a DARK COMEDY.. I guess I can finish this in one seating.
I got various collections: All available seasons of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, GOSSIP GIRLS, 7th HEAVEN, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, DIRTY SEXY MONEY, GILMORE GIRLS, THE MISTRESSES, SWEET VALLEY HIGH and the love of our life JAMIE, THE NAKED CHEF..
I'm not sure when I could have my passport back but I don't mind, as long as I have another bunch of the best American series. Gotta get the next season of "GILMORE GIRLS", perhaps..? hmmnn..
And oh America, please give us more of the 7th HEAVEN.. the best series for the whole family!
WEEDS, the series
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Weeds is an American dark comedy television series created by Jenji Kohan, produced by Lionsgate Television for the Showtime network.
The plot revolves around a widowed housewife (Mary-Louise Parker) from an affluent California suburb who becomes her neighborhood's marijuana dealer to make ends meet. The title is a play on words, referring to both the slang term for marijuana, and widow's weeds. It also refers to the tendency of American suburbs to grow quickly and pervasively, with the dwellings and their residents being almost as indistinguishable as weeds; this is mirrored in the show's theme song "Little Boxes" and opening credits, and is a recurring theme of the show itself.
Weeds currently comprises four seasons that began airing in August 2005. It was the highest rated series for Showtime its first year; its fourth-season premiere attracted 1.3 million viewers to Showtime, that channel's highest-ever viewership; the season as a whole averaged 962,000 viewers. Showtime announced on July 18, 2008 that two more seasons of thirteen episodes each will be produced.
Mary-Louise Parker won a Golden Globe for her performance on the show, and Jenji Kohan won a WGA award for her screenplay for the pilot episode. Season 5 is currently in production and will air in May 2009 according to the official website.
