[WEEDS] ② 推廣----S2故事大綱與一些瑣瑣碎碎

0 意見





The second season, while still comedic, has a much darker tone, as Nancy becomes increasingly involved in the more dangerous aspects of the drug "underground". Ignoring Heylia's advice, Nancy and Conrad start their own small-scale growing operation and eventually rent a suburban grow-house. She welcomes other people into her business, including her brother-in-law Andy and Doug.


During this season, Peter Scottson tells Nancy he knows she is a drug dealer, and the two are married as part of a deal to legally protect Nancy from Peter. While Nancy's drug activities increase, Celia runs for, and wins, Doug's spot on the town council: she launches a drug-free campaign across Agrestic complete with drug-free zone signs and surveillance cameras.


As the season progresses, Nancy's children become more aware of her illegal activities, though the two sons deal with the issue in quite different ways. Shane continues to have problems fitting in at school, and ultimately takes an interest in Andy's crazy ex-girlfriend, Kat (Zooey Deschanel). Silas, on the other hand, takes out his frustrations by committing acts of vandalism, most notably stealing Celia's drug-free zone signs and cameras.


Nancy and Conrad's drug business becomes a hit as Conrad's strain of plant, which Nancy dubs "milfweed", receives rave reviews from Snoop Dogg, but their high profile causes trouble. Initially, Nancy's marriage to a DEA agent keeps her on top while her Armenian rivals are routinely busted, but her marriage to Peter deteriorates as he pressures her to quit dealing. For Nancy, the final straw is when Peter comes over for dinner and manhandles Silas. Nancy calls Conrad and tells him that she doesn't love Peter; Peter hears the conversation with wireless surveillance.

Nancy與Conad的生意,因為Conad的傑出種植技術而大大成功,她們的大麻甚至連Snoop Dogg都滿口說讚。但由於過於高調,這也為她們招來了危機。起先,她與緝毒探員的婚姻使她擊退了亞美尼亞的競爭對手成為當地的龍頭……簡單的說,Peter去抄了對方的地盤當作給她的禮物。但由於種種事故,兩人的關係卻逐漸惡化。壓垮駱駝的最後一根稻草,是Nancy邀Peter到家裡晚餐,但因細故Peter卻粗魯地對待Silas。Nancy打電話告訴Conad自己並不愛Peter,好死不死卻被原本無心監聽Nancy的Peter聽到了。

The season concludes with a complex series of betrayals, as Peter demands of Nancy and Conrad all of the cash from a quick sale of their crop. Secretly, Heylia hires Armenian mobsters to kill Peter in retaliation. Nancy's buyer, U-Turn, demands the entire crop of weed at gunpoint. Having just killed Peter, the Armenian mobsters arrive at the same time and expect the proceeds from the big sale to pay for their hit. Only then does Nancy discover that Silas has decided to force his way into the business by stealing the entire batch of weed and demanding to be part of the business. It is at this time he is approached by Celia and a police officer for the vandalism. This leaves Nancy at the grow house, in a Mexican standoff with both the gangsters and the mobsters pointing guns at her in a season-ending cliffhanger.

(圖為本劇主人公Nancy Bodwin,由Mary-Louise Parker飾演,號稱本世紀最衰小、最沒有主角威能的主角。










The fictional, affluent Los Angeles, California suburb of Agrestic (an English word meaning "characteristic of the fields or country", but having a second meaning as "crude: lacking the qualities associated with sophistication") is home to Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker), whose husband Judah (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) recently, and suddenly, died of heart failure while jogging with his son Shane.

在洛杉磯、加州的一個虛構富裕郊區Agrestic中,衰小的主人公----Nancy Botwin的丈夫,不久前,在與兒子Shane玩樂的過程中,因心臟病猝死。

Agrestic: 雙關語。鄉村或牧場的特徵,也另解為crude:缺乏教養。

Nancy begins dealing marijuana to locals in her suburban town in order to support her household while maintaining an upper-class lifestyle.
As depicted in the series, Agrestic has a public school system, which Nancy's children (Hunter Parrish) and SilasShane (Alexander Gould) both attend. She buys from (Tonye Patano), a major distributor in the Agrestic area whom she met through Heylia JamesConrad (Romany Malco), Heylia's nephew. Nancy utilizes her baking skills and concocts pot-laced munchies to sell,



Nancy的貨源/上游/供應商是Heylia James,在她面臨困境時,她的姪子Conad偷偷傳授Nancy作餅乾蛋糕的秘方,而Nancy也藉參了大麻的「加料點心」,成功的脫離了困境。

and later, with the aid of her accountant, councilman Doug Wilson, she sets up a legitimate bakery as a front for her drug sales. Silas begins dating a deaf girl (Shoshannah Stern) who lives in the area. Shane is a more troubled child, and has the nickname "Strange Botwin" at school. He has been known to act out and, for example, bites the foot of another child in martial arts class.

之後,在她的會計師,地方議員Doug Wilson的幫助下,她成立了一個空頭公司,一家餅乾店,作為販毒生意的掩護。大兒子Silas開始跟一個聾女孩約會(此女在惡毒的高中生口耳相傳中,以可以輕易為人吹喇叭聞名)小兒子Shane則在學校被人當作怪胎,經常惹出麻煩。

Nancy befriends the manic, image-obsessed, manipulative and controlling Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins), president of the Agrestic PTA, who has a number of domestic problems. She does not get along with her cheating husband (Andy Milder). Nor does she get along with her older daughter, Quinn (Silas' previous girlfriend), who Celia sends her off to boarding school in Mexico in the premiere. Her younger daughter is overweight and a lesbian, and Celia berates her cruelly about both issues.

Nancy的鄰居Celia Hodes是一個狂熱、偶像崇拜、有控制欲(…manic, image-obsessed, manipulative and controlling這邊我不知道怎麼翻orz)的中年婦女,是Agrestic的PTA主席(婦聯會之類的)她有一個低能的丈夫,跟華裔網球教練搞外遇、大女兒Quinn是Silas的前女友,因為跟Silas上床就被她送去墨西哥的寄宿學校,而小女兒是一個小胖妹,還是一個女同性戀。時常受到她媽媽為了減重,在精神與肉體上的雙重折磨。

Toward the end of the season, Celia is diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer, and before her surgery she has sex with Conrad (Romany Malco). Conrad is long-time friends with Andy Botwin (Justin Kirk), the younger brother of Nancy's late husband and the black sheep of the family. Andy says he has moved into the Botwin household to help Nancy out, but seems to just be there to free-load. He decides to study to become a rabbi in order to avoid military service in Iraq.

接近第一季尾聲時,Celia發現自己得了乳癌,在接受切除手術之前,為了享受最後一段有奶頭的人生,她跟Conad上床。Conad是Nancy的小叔Andy Botwin的多年酒肉朋友,Andy則是Botwin家族中的敗類,一日突然出現,聲稱要幫助Nancy而自作主張的要長住下來。他也為了逃避徵兵,硬是跑去學猶太教的法律。

Nancy has a brief fling with a rival drug dealer and then starts dating Peter Scottson, the parent of the kid her son bit in karate class. The season closes with Nancy's plan to become a grower. However, this plan hits complications when she sleeps with Peter, only to find out he's an agent with the DEA
