I absolutely love this show! Mary-Louise Parker does an excellent job portraying Nancy Botwin, the suburbanite widow raising her two sons while struggling to be successful (and discreet) as a pot dealer. The show is wacky, smart, and hilarious.

The supporting cast could not have been chosen better. All the characters mesh well together, and the entire show just has a "polished" feel to it - like these actors are genuinely enjoying their jobs on this project. It just feels right.

Even if you aren't a pro-marijuana person, I think you should check out this Showtime series. It throws a new light on an old profession, and also shows a much needed different point of view on why some good people end up doing bad things.

I totally agree with you. I like your comparison of the show's title to the actual weed plant. =)

Over the course of the show, Nancy becomes involved in illegal activities on an escalating scale.

The first three seasons deal mainly with selling and growing marijuana locally. Seasons four and five follows the Botwin family moving to Ren Mar after Agrestic—their hometown—burns down due to Nancy's competitive dealers' fields catching aflame. In Ren Mar, Nancy gets married to Esteban Reyes, the mayor of Tijuana and the head of a drug cartel, with whom Nancy had a baby boy, naming him Stevie. At the conclusion of season five, Shane murders Esteban's campaign manager, Pilar, a scornful woman who threatened to kill Shane and Silas. Subsequently, the sixth season follows the Botwin family as they attempt to escape both the federal authority and Esteban's cartel. In the conclusion of season six, Andy, Silas, Shane, and Nancy have plans to escape to Copenhagen together until Nancy is found by Esteban and Guillermo who plan ...
