America's Hottest Pot Dealer is Out on Her 5th Season!

I have been an avid fan of Weeds (the TV series, not the actual herb) and I have all the DVD episodes from Season 1 to (now) Season 5! It's something I can watch over and over again and NEVER get tired off.

Last weekend Ani and I did a back to back Season 5 screening at home and we were left hunger for more! Tak sabar okay nak tunggu the season 6 to come out. *grin*.

The season pick up where it left off at Season 4, with the hottest pot-momma, Nancy Botwin, pregnat with the son of the Mayor-cum Mexican druglord, Esteban Reyes.

Stuck between life and death for ratting the druglord's operations in the previous season, her life hangs on the fate of her unborn child.

Eventually she married the guy in a simple ceremony and later, on the road to being the wife of future Governor...

Whats interesting is the drama to get to being the wife of future governor.

Because Nancy's life is never NOT complicated.

First, there's the unspoken love between Nancy and her brother in law, Andy Botwin. he's the brother in law who has always been around and never grew up.

Andy finally realises that he has a "thing " for Nancy and is eager for a chance. The fact that Nancy decided to marry Esteban and keep the child crushed him. Eventually he found love in a doctor who operated a free clinic Nancy frequented for second opinions....

And guess what, he finally man up and propose! It'll be interestinmg to see what will happen in Season 6 (if he doeventually marry the doctor) and find out whether he will change into a family man or still maintain his philandering ways because seriously...Andy is never a one women kind of men.

Then there's the prodigical sons.....


Sylas, the elder of two is now venturing to a small time weed business and learning the tricks of the trades. Unlike season 2 and 3 where Sylas is usually the centre of rebellions and the one creating havoc, this season his character is more grounded and mature. I am not surprised if one day he will be the pillar of the family and finally clean up Nancy's mess for good.

The problem this season is brewing in the second child, Shane.....

...who use to be the moral centre of the family (always wants to do good and the right thing) now more open to the darker side of life (not drugs though) but pain and torture.

Th fact that he now prefer pain to happiness is disturbing.

I love the new baby Steve-Ray Botwin-Reyes....he is so freaking cute okeh! Nothing much to say about him because the new born didn't really get that much air time.

Heheheheh!

Of course, every season has its villain. This season we have Pilar....

Pilar - daughter of an influential tycoon and the head honcho behind Esteban Reyes campaign to become a governer - major threat to Nancy.

The end of Season 5 will shock you!

*grin*

Keep an eye for the group dance in the park....


The scene is pretty funny, with complete strangers simply swinging at the open centre court to a funky beat...

To those who had never seen Weeds before...here's a sneak preview....



Enjoy!
