Storyline

After her husband's unexpected death and subsequent financial woes, suburban mom Nancy Botwin (Parker) embraces a new profession: the neighborhood pot dealer. As it seems like everyone secretly wants what she's selling -- even city councilman Doug Wilson (Nealon) -- Nancy is faced with keeping her family life in check and her enterprise a secret from her neighbor/pseudo-friend/PTA president, Celia Hodes (Perkins). Written by IMDb Editors (Corrected by bdb4269)

Trivia

Lindsay Sloane was a huge fan of the show, and considered the role of Maxeen perfect for the kind she wanted to play, at that time in her career. But, in retrospect, she regrets taking it, because she found out she was pregnant the day before she started shooting, and felt disconnected in the part, because she was disconnected in her own body. She's said she thinks she didn't line up enough with what they wanted that part to be. She couldn't be on the season finale, and her character was written out. See more »

Goofs

During seasons 2 through 5, several episodes feature a DEA agent named Roy Till with the rank of Captain. The Drug Enforcement Administration, a federal agency within the Department of Justice, has no such rank. See more »

Quotes

Nancy Botwin: Nice, Shane goes on a paint rampage, gets suspended. The two of you ditch school to fuck in my guest room. I've got everything under control.
Quinn: But don't you see, technically we're not under your roof.

The best television has to offer
26 March 2006 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

What a clever, well written show. Immensely watchable and well acted. Mary Louise Parker is perfect in the role of a Yuppie, widowed woman making ends meet by selling Marijuana. The show highlights well the difficulties for single women not just at the upper end of the economic spectrum, but those not quite as well off. The language, although at times is strong, is realistic and appropriate.

All of the roles are interesting. Elizabeth Perkins plays the role of the acerbic friend who never quite realized her life ambitions. Her one daughter is overweight, the other just hates her, and her husband is sleeping with the Asian American tennis pro.

Every episode offers something new. I will definitely keep on looking for the next episode.
