Cool. “Weeds” is about the only thing worth watching on Showtime. Now, for the price of one month of pay cable, I can get the whole season of the only show I was interested in anyway. Nice.

Now if only they would add “The Chris Isaak Show” I’d be the proverbial happy camper.  I noticed that Weeds has an explicit tag.  Are the Itunes versions unedited (i.e. nudity, language, etc)?
