The Must List: June 13, 2008
1. WEEDS on Showtime
After torching her little box last year, our favorite pot dealer Nancy Botwin heads for the Mexican border when season 4 lights up on June 16. Did someone warn Mexico?

The critics’ darling about New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood gets our vote for Best Musical. Tune in June 15 to see if Tony agrees.
3. ATMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCES, by Rivka Galchen
This stunning novel’s hero is so paranoid, he thinks his wife is an impostor. It’ll make you appreciate your significant other. That is, if they are who they say they are.

The FX drama brought the heat (hello, Gina Gershon!) and some real infernos (Jerry’s suicide), while the DVD edition offers deleted scenes and six featurettes.

The ex-Destiny’s Child will be able to pay her bills, bills, bills with this catchy dance track.
