movie-weeds-season-3.jpgSynopsis

Nancy Botwin (Parker) was married to a DEA agent, and when he passed away, she didn't have any money. So, to survive, she begins growing and selling marijuana from her home.

Of course, her friends are buyers, and when the word gets around, her little business to survive turns into a big money-maker.

So, after two seasons of success on Showtime, here is the third season, all 15 episodes. The "business" is the core and the idea is how she gets into and out of various problem scenarios trying to maintain the soccer mom image, while she keeps the soccer team stoned.

Commentary

This is the first TV series that I have seen the Blu-ray set from, and I have to say, I am impressed. I hope my favorite HDTV series, such as CSI Las Vegas, CSI Miami, CSI New York, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Numbers will deliver all the past seasons in Blu-ray.

Technical

This stuff looks better than some theater films. I suspect it was shot on high def TV cameras at 24 fps, which means it only had to pass through a lens one time from live scene to Blu-ray disc.

Extras

These include commentaries, gag reel, and other things.
