I'm watching "Weeds" for the first time. How realistic is this show to rich white America?

  • I would say a lot of it is for entertainment. But I did grow up in an upper middle class environment and a lot of characters on the show do remind me of people I knew growing up. Only the first season though, things were not as crazy as the show gets...but it is one of my favorites.

  • It is a show on Showtime. You'd have to see it to know what I'm talking about. Never said it was exclusive to white people.

  • I would say if it is a television show it is created for ratings and NOT indicative of the norm.

  • Do you mean the part where the soccer mom pays the rent by selling pot or the part were the rich guy next door is sleeping with teenage boys?

  • Well thanks NotPanicking...I've only seen the first episode. But the best friend who is such a snob and so concerned about her daughters weight. And the mom selling weed and the guy next door as well.
    Some shows/movies are far fetched and others are closer to real life. Of course not for EVERYONE but for some. I'm curious.
