Is anyone else out there watching this series? We don't get Showtime so we are a bit behind. So far we've watched the whole first season and we are now on the last half of the second season.
The acting is really good and the story is both funny and disturbing at the same time. In case you haven't heard, it's about a suburban housewife (played by Mary Louise Parker) who looses her husband and starts selling weed to make ends meet. The cast of characters include her loser brother in law who moves in and sponges off her. Her pot head accountant (played brilliantly by Kevin Nealon). Her two sons who are figuring out how she makes her money and going through puberty at the same time. One of the most interesting characters is her frenemy and completely annoying new council woman Celia played by Elizabeth Perkins.
Richard and I are both completely hooked on this series. I guess better hooked on the show than the weed itself.
edited to add: We just watched season 2 finale and just like the rest of the series ~ We really didn't see that coming!
