Covered Now By Three Names

I wanna take a minute to mention that Weeds is the greatest show on non-television (i.e. Showtime). You see, both Toby Joe Boudreaux and I have the hots for Mary-Louis Parker. Years ago, Missy and I saw Mary-Louis Parker perform in Proof on Broadway and then I took Toby Joe to see Proof and Jennifer Jason Leigh played the lead roll. Both gals are on “the list”. Incidentally, I recently read the most scathing article written on the film version of Proof featuring none other than Gwyneth Paltrow who, I am told, doesn’t quite bring it to life as seen in the Broadway version. But I think that’s because she just don’t got what Mary Louis Parker and Jennifer Jason Leigh got. For starters, I think she needs one more name.

I’ve liked Mary Louis Parker since 1991. I have proof. I remember it well. Many years ago, I told a lesbian friend, Vanessa, that I found Mary Louse Parker super hot. (This was right after Fried Green Tomatoes came out.) Vanessa found Mary Stuart Masterson hotter than Mary Louis Parker. I thought she was crazy and so I suspended her Lesbian Card for the day.

None of this really has any anything to do with anything else. I just wanted to write to say that Weeds is awesome.

  1. I agree, Weeds is completely awesome. I watched one episode and ordered Showtime immediately. I love Mary Louise Parker and Justin Kirk since Angels in America, and the writing is so insanely clever and funny. Completely quotable and rewatchable. Also, Elizabeth Perkins – in maybe her best role yet. So good.

  2. She’s incredible as well. How about that scene featuring a 6 year old imitating a terrorist decapitation video on film? Oh dear lord, did we ever laugh. It’s not funny in the retelling (believe me, i tried) but holy crap, so funny.

  3. That 6 year old was the voice of Nemo in Finding Nemo. He’s so cute. That scene was very funny, despite it being disturbing. That was the point I guess. My favorite part was the fruit roll-up line.

    Mary Louise Parker just acts the hell out of anything she’s in – her reaction to the video at the end of last week’s episode was so sad.

  4. Last week’s episode made me cry. (The ending where she’s watching the video of her and her husband. I can’t imagine going through that. So sad)
