People aren’t still watching Weeds, are they? I definitely stayed on board longer than I should have, but it seemed to steadily decline when they dropped “Little Boxes” as the theme song (which, not coincidentally was when the Botwins left Agrestic).
Malvina Reynolds’ folk song “Little Boxes,” about the conformism of suburbia, was used for the first season, and various artists covered it for the second and third seasons. It brought some pretty cool renditions by artists like Elvis Costello, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins and Regina Spektor.
I haven’t been watching season eight, but apparently, “Little Boxes” is back, and the Mountain Goats performed it with help from Midtown Dickens.
Check out the cover below, and if you’ve been watching this season of Weeds, let us know if it’s worth it.
