Synopsis
Nancy's (Mary-Louise Parker) PTA proposal to remove sodas from the school's vending machines and replace them with bottled water and fruit juice is shot down by Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), who insists that preteens who are watching their weight have access to diet soda. Nancy overhears her fellow moms gossiping about her finances, and later visits her suppliers and learns about Heylia's (Tonye Patano) uncanny ability to eyeball an ounce. Conrad (Romany Malco) lets Nancy know that their relationship could be more than just business, if she wanted. Nancy's problems with her budding business include a customer, Doug (Kevin Nealon), who is also her accountant and a member of the city council, and is a bit too public about his fondness for her product. Doug's teen son Josh (Justin Chatwin of War of the Worlds) is a fellow dealer, and when Nancy helps him out when his supplier is out of town, she asks him to follow two simple rules: "Stay away from my customer base" and "Don't deal to kids." Josh agrees, but Nancy later hears that a ten year-old at Shane's (Alexander Gould) school has been busted. At home, Celia's daughter Quinn (Haley Hudson) has been spending a lot of time with Silas (Hunter Parrish), but Nancy is still a little taken aback when the teens ask her for permission to have sex in her home. Celia makes her own counter-plea to Nancy, admitting that she reads Quinn's diary. Meanwhile, Shane plots revenge against a bully (Adam Taylor Gordon) mean enough to mock his fatherless status. ~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide

After many years of HBO dominating the cable tv line-ups with giants like The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Sex in ... What better way for Showtime to make it's presence known than showcasing a pot dealing/baking pta soccer mom. Mary Louise-Parker plays a mom who deals financially with the sudden death of her husband by dealing marijuana to her conservative community leaders and other soccer mom and dad like folks to support her two kids. Mary Louise-Parker is excellent and she proves why her Golden Globe was well deserved. The writing and the characters stick with you . Momentum picks up with each episode and the pilot is just a sample of the shows unique, quirky and brilliant sense of humor. The show goes a lot deeper than just stoner humor, however when the characters talk shop there is no hiding the writers knowledge of pot lingo whether it's research, real or both.
