Weeds: Season Six
Season 6 of this highly acclaimed series turns over a new leaf when pot-selling soccer mom Nancy Botwin (Golden Globe® winner Mary- Louise Parker) tries to leave behind her illegal operations. Includes the complete Season 6 with all 13 episodes on 3 discs.
After a family member eliminates a competitor with a croquet mallet, the Weeds family hits the road again in the sixth season of the Showtime dramedy. With his relationship in tatters, Andy (Justin Kirk) joins up with Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) and the boys. On the way to Seattle, the Botwins become the Newmans, who aim to lead a non-drug dealing existence. Promises Nancy: "It's a whole new life." All the while, her husband, Esteban (Demian Bichir), is on their trail. In the Jet City, they find work at a hotel, where they tangle with a no-nonsense manager (Mad Men's Patrick Fischler) and a sadistic chef (Fargo's Peter Stormare). Soon, Nancy soon adds "herbal relaxation therapy" to the maid service she provides (Linda Hamilton plays her supplier), Silas (Hunter Parrish) gives college life a try, and babysitter Shane (Alexander Gould) falls in with a trio of soccer moms. (The show re-creates Washington in California.) After Esteban's men kidnap Doug (Kevin Nealon), they head towards the Midwest, where Nancy has a fling with a hunky bartender (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) on her way to visit a figure from her past (Richard Dreyfuss). In Michigan, Silas uncovers a family secret and one fugitive stops running. If the year gets off to a bumpy start, Weeds finds its footing once the cast leaves Ren Mar (except for Elizabeth Perkins's Celia, who doesn't show up at all). As ever, Parker holds the scenario together by finding the likability in a character who often does unlikable things. Extras include a gag reel, three featurettes (including one in which Kirk and Nealon interview each other), and eight commentaries with cast and crew, plus guest stars Hemky Madera (Ignacio) and Enrique Castillo (Cesar), director Tate Donovan, and creator Jenji Kohan, who describes season six as "a sort of road movie." --Kathleen C.

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. ~A. A. Milne~ HBW!
THIS should have been my motto when i was in middle school and high school! There were so many people that either did not like me, or never even knew i existed! i was once told that it was because i was "aloof and seemed as tho i felt superior"..........nothing could have been farther from the truth, and i was stunned. i was painfully shy.
i stayed out of the limelight and drama, because i was so shy and quiet. i kept to myself and spent most of my time reading or doing my artwork....in retrospect, i was not unhappy.....just puzzled why people would treat me that way without attempting to get to know me. Because of how i was treated and perceived, i have always tried to befriend the quiet and shy kids at school....just to let them know that i see them, and i appreciate them for who they are. They are flowers too....perhaps in a paler shade of pink or purple, just like i was...and i want them to know that they are valued for who they are, no matter what. Being valued is an important thing....if by no one else, than by yourself....
Even my good friends find it hard to believe that i was THAT shy.....and often tell me so.....but it is the truth. i did not begin to shed my shyness until after i had my kids....and suddenly the world seemed to be less threatening and more fun to me. Believe it or not i am still very shy in new situations and only really open up after i begin to feel a comfort with the situation and those in it. Suffice it to say i do not do well in a big room full of strangers....Humor is my coping mechanism and these days i am really only serious when i need to be.... life is much too short not to have fun! (i do tend to laugh sometimes when i absolutely should be VERY serious....but, i attribute that to an overactive humor gene, and it usually involves children’s antics that should be nipped in the bud!) i do LOVE to laugh.
Soooo, as you go through your HAPPY BOKEH WEDNESDAY/ HAPPY HUMP DAY, remember to be nice to all the weeds out there! Make one of them LOL!! :D

In order to care for her children and maintain her standard of living, a young woman becomes her wealthy neighborhood's pot dealer after her husband's sudden death. Genre: Television Rating: NR Release Date: 9-JAN-2007 Media Type: DVD
With its fantastic comedy series Weeds, cable network Showtime finally gave up its also-ran status to HBO and found itself with a controversial, buzz-worthy show that was as hilarious as it was dark, one about a truly desperate housewife. A recent widow with two growing sons, Nancy Botwin (Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker) looks like a typical resident of the affluent Southern California suburb of Agrestic. She keeps a clean, upscale house (with the help of a live-in maid), attends PTA meetings, goes to her kids' soccer games, makes frequent stops at the local coffee franchise.... and sells marijuana in order to make it all possible. Left with no way to support herself after her beloved husband's fatal heart attack, Nancy turns herself into the "suburban baroness of bud," dealing to her neighbors in the area, with the help of her supplier Heylia (Tonye Patano) and point man Conrad (Romany Malco). Nancy's clients run from the local councilman (Kevin Nealon) to the just-barely-legal students at the local community college, but many in Agrestic are still in the dark as to how she keeps her family afloat, including her best friend, the sardonic Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), a wife and mother whose blistering, withering put-downs could make Dorothy Parker cringe in fear. But like many small-business owners, Nancy yearns for more success and cash, and like her workaholic neighbors, finds keeping a balance between work life and home life to be extremely precarious at best. While Desperate Housewives yearned to be a suburban satire with bite, Weeds was the real deal, skewering upper-middle class mores with a sharp eye, a keen wit, and a mostly forgiving heart. In episode after episode, the show's creative team (led by creator Jenji Kohan) pulled back the layers of Agrestic's superficiality to show what lies beneath the squeaky-clean exteriors and smiling faces; it turns out that hunger, fear, desire, and, yes, desperation aren't that far down. However, Weeds forsakes pulpiness and florid drama for biting yet affectionate humor--its heroine is a woman with sliding morals, but one you'll root for to the very end. The effervescent Parker, the only actress who can mix perkiness with morbidity in just the right amounts, anchored the show with her amazing turn as Nancy, who by the end of the first season had become a kind of soccer-mom version of Michael Corleone, entering a corrupt world with both trepidation and fascination--and totally enamored of the power it brought her. Also perfectly cast, Perkins found the role of a lifetime as the bitterly hilarious Celia, and entering the show in its fourth episode, Justin Kirk (Parker's co-star in Angels in America) proved to be a potent secret weapon as Nancy's brother-in-law Andy, a slacker who wasn't above peddling t-shirts to elementary school kids. As icky as these characters might appear on the surface, Weeds made them all immensely appealing and great company to be around. Don't say we didn't warn you: one hit and you'll be hooked on this show. The DVDs feature six episode commentaries with cast and crew, outtakes, original featurettes, a music video, and most enjoyably, Agrestic Herbal Recipes (for entertainment value only, we assume) and the "Smoke and Mirrors" marijuana mockumentary. --Mark Englehart
