So, this batch of "Weeds" didn't quite hit the spot... there's no doubt that the last three seasons of the show were not as magical as the first three, but it is just as dark, funny, heart-warming in a weird way, cynical, and too good to pass.
In this season, Nancy and her family are on the run from the law, leaving to Canada. Where their lives change dramatically, as does the series.
One of the entire reason "Weeds" was so popular when it first started was because of its irony. In the show, a well-off soccer mom sells pot to the friendly people of Agrestic/Majestic, and what is the result? Pure, adult comic, genius.
In this season, however, things are very different. Do I miss the old Weeds? Yes. But, one has to hand it to the show. There are very few TV-series out there that are brave enough to completely change a winning formula that already has a large fan base, and dive head first into the unknown.
But don't get me wrong, there are still elements to the show that we love about, and the twists and turns are hardly dull. And then there's the great soundtrack, or better still, the brilliant season finale.
If you have loved Weeds, I recommend buying it.
Haven't seen it before? Watch the first three seasons first.
