      VERY random and unexpected plug for Chow. On a side note, this season of Weeds is outstanding

        I loved seeing CH get the shout out, but it sure seemed like more of a Yelper move!

    2. When I saw this weeks weeds and that guys said that i just burst out laughing, none of my roommates knew why.

      1. Well it was Showtime, owned by CBS. This is the sort of synergy they were talking about when they bought CNet.

          I have no more insider perspective on this than you do, but I'd bet my chowmobile that the idea emanated purely from the Weeds writer room, with no CBS influence.

          FWIW, the snippet can be viewed online...I linked to the clip on my Slog at

            I'd have to agree. It would just fit that people that know so much about pot, would know a lot about food.

        2. Great Show. Many things have suprised me over the run of the show, but that might have been the biggest. I'll be looking for a "what do you eat when you have the munchies" thread soon.

          1. Ughhh I wish I still had Showtime! I need to watch this online.
