Review: Weeds

Weeds is a U. S. TV series created by Jenji Kohan and produced by Lionsgate Television. The title is a synonym for marijuana in American slang. Indeed, this drug is the primary symbol of the series, which is built around the subject. The main character is Nancy Botwin, a widow with two children who starts selling marijuana to support her family. The scenario leaves the normal pattern presenting with a woman dealer in the world of drug trafficking.

But things are not as dangerous as you'd expect, we're not talking about an action series with suspense and other specific ingredients. However, the whole thing with selling weed becomes more serious as episodes go by. Consider Weeds as a realistic series which shows the American suburbs and the ascension of the drugs, but in a funny way, without tragedy or dramatic stories.

Besides the fact that the character's occupation is illegal, neither the children - Shane and Silas – are free from this world. Selling and growing marijuana is not just a job but becomes also a hobby. Attempts of the eldest son to grow new species of plants will turn out to be extremely funny. The series does not aim directly to condemn the real issues of society, but to highlight them in a comic, hilarious manner. Weeds is not exactly a common series, but neither are those of us who enjoy the episodes. This is a good thing I have to say.

Verdict:
Weeds is a cute comedy series that you will surely enjoy. They say marijuana is not addictive, but even if this is so, you can become addicted to Weeds for sure.
