“Weeds” is no exception; this is how the show tells us both that there are dirty secrets in these California closets and that it has satirical credibility. Like most shows, “Weeds” doesn't win any points for subtlety in this area, or in some others, including its soundtrack, which underlines every moment with all too obvious knowingness. The show's theme song is the insufferably smug sixties folk ditty “Little Boxes,” by the protest singer Malvina Reynolds, an indictment of suburban conformity that you need to hear only once in your life, for historical purposes. It doesn't feel good to be talked down to at the beginning of every episode of a show.
Thank you Lang Rabbie..:-) I shall now look up the ' imsufferably smug sixties folk singer Malvina reynolds'...then find a Little Box and stuff the girl in the Herbal Essences Ad. with her boyfriends loin cloth! I know it's a change of subject, but thats another ad. that drives me potty. I wonder if any one else finds certain ads. drives 'em mad? or is it just me?
