Though you have many compelling reasons to tune into WEEDS tonight on Showtime, one of the best ones begins before the show even starts!
As you have probably noted, in this new season something 'old' has been resurrected, specifically the song, 'Little Boxes' by Malvina Reynolds which became a cover phenomena many years ago (as in '40' years-ago) after tickling the whimsy of song-sters and inspiring countless renditions of the class-oriented ditty, some of which were played as the opening theme of the show.
In epsidoe 8.01, Malvina Reynolds' version was played over the opening sequence. Now, episode 8.03 features probably the most 'out there' cover of "Little Boxes,' ever! Stay tuned for tonight's closing credits and you'll see why--or you can just scroll down for a look at the quick screen grab I did while going "a-ha" simultaneously!
I LOL'ed. Weeds is awesome!
