TV is Great

Over the Summer, I discovered a few TV gems that I've been missing out on. Therefore, I shall share them with you.

First: Weeds

This Showtime series follows the life of Nancy Botwin, a suburban housewife with two sons. Her husband dropped dead suddenly, so she must sell marijuana to maintain the lifestyle for her children. Her dead husband's brother, Andy, and her accountant who makes it all possible, Doug, make the show utterly hysterical. It's gritty, not afraid to show glamor and dirt, and wonderful!!!


Second: The Tudors

Okay, so I'm a sucker for historical fiction, especially British historical fiction! I know I prefer the Victorian time period, but who doesn't love Henry the 8th stories!!! The show is absolutely beautiful, beautiful costumes, beautifully crafted, beautiful scripts, drama, etc! It's gripping, occasionally humorous, horribly tragic, and just the best thing ever. I've only seen through wife two (of six if you don't know), and I really hope the show goes beyond Henry to show the reign of Edward, Mary and Elizabeth as well.


Third: So You Think You Can Dance

Okay, I admit. I don't really watch this show. But Lauren made me watch a few clips and I fell in love with this one:
