Viewing fifteen minutes of an episode of Weeds while trying to interpret nonverbal cues seemed simple . After all , I ‘m familiar with the characters and the storyline – what could I possibly miss ? It turns out that while I was right some of the time , I was wrong others , and on more than one occasion , I even failed to take a character ‘s traits into account when making decisions regarding the nonverbal cues I observed [banner_entry_middle]

br The good news is that my roommate saw the same things I did , so I don ‘t feel as bad

I watched in silence as the white housewife and her African-American partner in drug crime entered a music studio . The African-American man slammed a baggie of weed in front of a man at the mixing console – he too was African-American . The two men exchanged handshakes and hugs – the cool man ‘ kind , and both eyed the white woman who had been placed in the background and was slightly out of camera focus (Almost as an after thought , she sat on the edge of another mixing console intentionally looking away from the men ) The males talked between themselves , but they made regular shoulder hitches , head nods , and eye motions toward the woman .

that their conversation will be productive unless the mixing guy focuses on the one product that

is for sale : the weed , but the woman does say something to the mixer with a broad smile on her

face and a nod . Maybe her business will come before her pride , after all . As the camera angles
