Redemption

I was about to give up on Weeds; it had just gotten so ridiculously over-the-top and seemed to have lost any emotional resonance to rein it back in.

But this last one? Wow. There's a lot to talk about...the sexualization of the black male, exactly how men make women crazy and why women have to go crazy once in a while, Zany and Zanier plot points (Eskimos! Crossing Guards! Zoey Deschanel!)....but I don't want to give anything away. Mary Louise Parker makes my parenting look like......wait....let me think of it....there has to be at least ONE famous example of a good mother! I wanted to say Mary Poppins but she was a nanny. Mother Theresa was only a nun....hmmmmm
