Weeds comes back for a second season on ShowTime as still one of the best shows on TV.
Mary-Louise Parker is great. She can express five emotions all at the same time. She has a special way of gritting her teeth and smiling at the same time.
This year's story line has the potential to go a bit off track, and lose the sweet balance of normalcy and a slightly criminal sideline. I was a little scared by the sleeping with a DEA agent story line, but somewhat reassured by the quickie marriage in Vegas twist. Still, the process of growing pot, and threats of intrusion by standard villians could wreck the charm of the show.
