EEDS" is back, and it's about time. Showtime's banner dramedy about a pot-dealing suburban mom is one of the best reasons to pay for cable. As Nancy Botwin, Mary-Louise Parker captures the sardonic narcissism of a widow who enters the drug world out of desperation (what else could an upper-middle-class, stay-at-home mom do? Sell Avon?) only to be seduced by early success and her own bad-girl self.

Fifteen-year-old Alexander Gould was a mere minnow when he landed a whopper role, voicing the title character in the 2003 animated smash "Finding Nemo." But even at that tender age, Gould was already a show-business veteran, having appeared in such TV series as "Freaks and Geeks," "Ally McBeal" and "Malcolm in the Middle."

We've suspected it for some time, but "Finding Nemo" all but makes it official: With five successes out of five attempts, Pixar Animation Studios is now the most reliable creative force in Hollywood. Perhaps not since Preston Sturges made seven classic comedies in a row between 1940 and 1944 has one name been such a consistent indicator of audience and critical pleasure. Following the two "Toy Story" films, "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters, Inc.

Over at Showtime, there is good news and bad: "Weeds" is back, but it has brought "Californication" with it. Let us lead with the positive: "Weeds" is odder, darker and more suspenseful than ever. When we last saw suburban, pot-dealing and personal responsibility-challenged Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker), she had several automatic weapons pointed at her head and a big box full of empty where the drugs should have been.

"Nurse Jackie," the much-buzzed-about half-hour medical comedy starring Edie Falco, premieres tonight, following, in what has become a Showtime launch tradition, the season premiere of the perennially great "Weeds." Pot mom meet Oxy-mom. Just ask multiple-personality mom ("United States of Tara") to slide a little closer to I-married-a-serial-killer mom ("Dexter") and all those overdressed bear-me-a-son-or-you're-dead moms ("The Tudors"). But watch out for depressive-sex-addict dad ("Californication")

In "Weeds," debuting Sunday on Showtime, Mary-Louise Parker plays Nancy Botwin, a newly widowed mother of two who has become, in those weightless, whirlwind first stages of the grieving process, a pot supplier to her upscale planned community of Agrestic, Calif. Nancy buys her weed by the ounce from a black family of drug dealers in L.A.
