If you fell in love with Showtime’s hit TV show, Weeds, you probably remember the plot pretty clearly. Basically, the dark comedy is about a mother (Nancy Botwin) who begins selling marijuana in an effort to make enough money to support her family after her husband unexpectedly dies of a heart attack. Of course, hijinks follow, things get complicated, people die, Nancy marries a high-profile Mexican drug dealer and ends up in jail. Basically, it was 8 seasons of CRAZY TOWN.
What’s really crazy when we think about our favorite television series, though, is how much the actors change and mature over time.
Just for the sake of a little side by side comparison, here is a look at the main cast over the years:
Mary Louise Parker who led the show in her brilliant portrayal of Nancy Botwin (she looks the SAME now):
And how can we forget that Hunter Parish, who portrayed Silas Botwin, literally blossomed before our eyes?
Justin Kirk, who played Andy Botwin, has barely aged a day in these years.
And then we have Alexander Gould, who played Shane Botwin, who no joke grew up on camera:
And last but certainly not least, Kevin Nealon, who played good old Doug Wilson:
Pretty crazy how time flies, are we right? Good thing we can relieve the good old days with these folks, thanks to DVDs and Netflix.
