Walter White and Nancy Botwin: #OccupyYourTV

I was literally on the road last week when Showtime sent out its press release announcing the upcoming 8th season of “Weeds.” But I wanted to talk about it all the same, as tardy to the party as I might be. That announcement came at a point in which a few disparate things were rolling […]
