Up in smoke

I am in love with the show Weeds, on Showtime. When we signed up for some satellite or TIVO package Scott got, probably with his HD TIVO, we also got Showtime and HBO, along with the channels that go with them, for free for about six months. I don't know when that six months will be up, but I've become addicted to several of the shows. Mainly Weeds.

If you aren't familiar with it, it's the story of a typical suburban family: mom, dad, two kids. The father passes away. In order to keep the lifestyle they are accustomed to, the mother starts selling pot within the neighborhood. She sells to the other adults - city councilmen, fathers, mothers, etc. The writing is actually quite good and it makes me laugh without fail.

So, our six months is almost up and I've got this decision to make: Do I like the show enough to shell out massive bucks each month to keep the pay channels?

If you had told me I would be contemplating shelling out cash for weed, I would never have believed it was a TV show.

MY BUZZ ONLY LASTS ONE HOUR THIS WAY! (And it only happens once a week)

There was a British film with a similar story once. Maybe I can get you the tape/DVD and you can save money?

Do you remember the name of it? I might be able to put it into our Netflix queue or find it through the library here. They have a LOT of British programming available.

I love the show too... and if you consider you are getting Penn and Teller's Bullshit, and a whole horde of good HBO programming, it rocks.

But if you don't want to pay for it, I guess I should tell you that you can find all these shows on file sharing networks.
