Weeds (2006)

In the second season of the show, Nancy Botwin, the main character, trades in her Range Rover for a Toyota Prius, which she drives throughout the rest of the show.

In a conversation with her son shortly after, she explains it’s environmentally responsible and also refers to global warming as well as the climate change documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.

Another character, U-Turn, buys a fleet of Prius cars for his gang, explaining that they’re ‘quiet’ and ‘good for sneaking up on motherf**kers’, as can be seen in the clip.
