  1. Weeds

    Weeds is an American dark comedy-drama series created by Jenji Kohan and produced by Tilted Productions in association with Lionsgate Television. The central character is Nancy Botwin, a widowed mother of two boys who begins selling marijuana to support her family after her husband dies suddenly of a heart attack. Over the course of the show, she and her family become increasingly entangled in illegal activities. The first three seasons take place primarily in the fictional town of Agrestic, California. During seasons four and five, the Botwins reside in the fictional beach side town of Ren Mar in San Diego County, California. In the sixth season, the family relocates to Seattle, Washington, and then Dearborn, Michigan. In between seasons six and seven, Nancy serves a prison sentence in Connecticut while her sons and brother-in-law live in Copenhagen, Denmark. At the beginning of season seven, Nancy moves into a halfway house in New York City where she reunites with her family. They live in Manhattan for the duration of the season, but relocate to Connecticut in the season seven finale and throughout season eight. The show debuted on the Showtime cable network on August 7, 2005, earning the channel's highest ratings. The series ended with the eighth season on September 16, 2012. In 2012, TV Guide Network bought the airing rights, providing an edited version of the show free of charge. The show has received numerous awards, including two Satellite Awards, one Golden Globe Award, a Writers Guild of America Award, a Young Artist Award, and 2 Emmy Awards.

Examples of weeds in a Sentence

  1. Chris Phillips:

    You can pull all these weeds out, but if you still have one there, the weeds can grow back again.

  2. Oscar Wilde, The Ballad of Reading Gaol:

    Vile deeds like poison weeds bloom well in prison air, it is only what is good in man, that wastes and withers there.

  3. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    Go often to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.

  4. Jacob Hornberger:

    It’s your classic conundrum, whether the Congress should swallow the bad in order to get the good. It’s time to get beyond fighting in the weeds here.

  5. Donald Trump:

    That’s not quite right, but it sure seems undemocratic. And it reeks of the kinds of insider politics that has caused widespread disgust with both parties. I say both parties because, as Donald Trump noted, Bernie Sanders is also getting hosed on the Democratic side. I’ve been concerned in the last few days that the media’s coverage of the presidential race is getting down into the weeds. The issues have mostly been drowned out, and even the state-by-state contests have been overshadowed by endless chatter about delegate math and party procedures. This is the stuff that media and political junkies crave but that civilians start to find incomprehensible. But people get it in their gut when someone is getting screwed. The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See Latest Coverage Primaries are the fairest way of picking a nominee. Caucuses are more time-consuming and complicated( although at least folks get to vote). And then there are states like Colorado. In March, Colorado held caucuses to pick delegates to a bunch of assemblies and conventions. And those people picked their favorite candidate. Ted Cruz won them all because Ted Cruz people outhustled an error-riddled effort by the Trump camp, and perhaps because the kind of party insiders elected to these gatherings don’t like Donald Trump. ( Yes, Ted Cruz is a hardly an establishment figure, but Ted Cruz’s become the most viable alternative for the GOP’s stop-Trump crowd.) The people out there are going crazy.
