Weeds Intro

I just got really into the Showtime original series, Weeds. I was interested in the plot line and how the writers portrayed a high-class California town that seems perfect on the outside.

I like to see how artists portray cookie-cutter towns in America, and Weeds has it down to a T. Not only that, but their introduction has it down perfectly. It's a very intelligent idea for a beginning or to even look at it as just a quick portrait of our culture.

Look at how many messages the introduction sends about our culture. (Coffee, working out, 9-5 jobs, perfect lawns, schedules, etc).

Watch the video here.

So what do you think of the Weeds introduction?
