Good (Weeds) and Great (Bourdain) TV This Monday Night

I'm not really a fan of Weeds, the Showtime pot dramedy -- though I should mention that Mary Louise Parker is looking pretty damn hot these days -- but I think it's pretty cool that the Marijuana Policy Project's LA VIP elbow-rubber is set to appear on Monday night's episode of the show. According to MPP's eNewsletter,
The episode will air at 10:00 p.m. EDT, and will be replayed at 10:30 p.m. and midnight the same evening, as well as on August 23 at 10:00 p.m. and August 25 at 9:00 p.m.
Unfortunately for the Weeds folks and MPP, I a) don't have Showtime anymore and b) will be watching Anthony Bourdain's Travel Channel special on his harrowing time in Beirut last month, filmed before and during the Hezbolebsraeli fighting that devastated the recovering paradise. From Bourdain's Travel Channel pages:
Don't miss Travel Advisory: Trapped Behind the Lines. In this one-hour special we'll recount the stories of the harrowing, life-threatening and sometimes deadly occurrences that have befallen travelers; through footage of recent events in Lebanon and Israel, to past incidents in Bali and Nepal, as well as the devastation following the London and 9/11 terror attacks.

Watch Travel Advisory: Trapped Behind the Lines on Monday, Aug. 21, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
