Weeds Review: First Days on the Job

It was a big day for all Botwins on this week's episode of Weeds, "Unfreeze."

OK Jill and Andy baby does not make a good fit. Nancy sleeping with clients wow whats new she can't break all bad habits now her and Silas working at pharmaceutical company good idea. Doug and fake charity is so not out of character he is secondary and only Honory family member.
