    • Does "I'm glad they finally pulled Weeds" count as a clever title? People love unoriginal puns, right?

      Just finished binge watching on Netflix. What rubbish. Just terrible through and through.

      Not since the cast of Friends have I ever seen a more loathsome and irredeemable group of characters. And the writing- lazy and baseless, evident every episode.

      Worst finale ever, too. Creator of this show should be ashamed.

      Let me end with a joke: What do you call a 190 lb. benign tumor growing around a penis?

      I love Weeds,Jenji Kohan is genius! I love Orange is the new black as well,I don't love Weeds, I LOVE WEEDS. Celia Rhodes's humor is amazing as well as Doug's and the problem's Nancy is always facing... Love to see her handle it so well... So far. Love it!!
    • Goodbye, Weeds crew!

      Thank you, all. I really did enjoy the series. A special shout-out to Justin Kirk ( Andy Botwin), you really made the show. Your monologues were great since the beginning. I have to say that the first 3 seasons were magical, although, not every episode can be a winner. Thanks again for the good times. little boxes on the hillside.
    • Why does every Showtime show have to be a bill board for " Gayism" instead of just good TV Gay or not ?

      This show has mediocre writing. It's interesting enough to play in the back ground while working on the computer. Unfortunately, instead of developing creative idea/conversation they settle 4 half ideas profanity, very stereotypical characters, Lude & inappropriate language most of the time homosexual innuendos even involving children. Showtime needs better writers. Just when I start to enjoy there's another "Suck Di@$K" type comments. Even Gay friends I know don't constantly speak about sexual acts. These writers have a terrible sense of humor laughed 2 in 4 seasons. No more bill boards for "Homosexual activities" save it for the gay shows or fitting moments! Focus on better better dialog & this can actually be a good show. Oh & the beautiful lead could gain some weight she looks hungry !moreless
