  • A tragically bad ending to worst series yet?

    3.5
    Wan't this show about a weed dealer? To say this is the main theme of the shows it remains it's most underexploited aspect.



    I can moan about the show, it's never stagmented, but now it has moved into areas which make me want to phone trading standards; what you get, is not what it says on the tin.



    I couldnt care less about the Estiban storyline and Nancy getting pregnant? That sucked. I still enjoyed this series however this ending episode was such a dissapointment. aking us wait a year for such a concluesion is annoying. I'd hardly call it climatic or exciting, in fact it was rather predictable and a very cheap way to solve the problem of the mexican cow. That conflict had far more promise than was ever realised.



    This episode felt rushed. The writers all must be smokers because this series tried to do too much and seems to have no ending in sight and when the last episode came about it felt like a desperate attempt to wrap things up and they scraped the barrell for a climax, by killing off a storyline they had started when they were high, but forgot what the point of it was.



    If I was showtime, I wouldn't bother renewing Weeds for a 5th series. So Jenji, heres what you have to do. Kill of Estiban, kill off the whole calfornian storyline and get Nancys ass back to Agrestic. Bring back Helia and Conrad, Bring back the weed dealing schemes, and either get Andy and Nancy together or kill off all chances of them being together. Don't waste our time anymore with the 'will they wont they' cliche: Desperate Housewives killed off such storylines with Mike and Susan, and the Nancy/Andy dynamic isn't good enough, for such an overused idea.moreless
  • End of Season 5.

    7.3
    Another season of Weeds has come and gone and while the show is no longer the elite, critical darling it once was, this was an above average season concluder and has me excited about what lies ahead in the potential final sixth season.



    I hope Audra sticks around as Alanis Morissette has been surprisingly entertaining in the role. I hate Esteban, but I hated him last year and he stuck around and he does not appear as if he will be leaving anytime soon.



    Oh, and kill Shane off, if possible, but again, that does not appear to be a likely scenario.moreless
  • An uneventful end to an uneventful season...

    5.0
    It's hard to believe Season 5 of Weeds has come to an end. I mean, time-wise yes - it did do its summer run. But, the plot progression was clearly not there. If people have forgotten, FYI, Weeds used to be a comedy. When I say an uneventful end to an uneventful season, I am sure most viewers would be ready to take a swing at me. You might say - did you see the last scene, where Shane breaks Pilar's head? Yes, that was a spike in the story line, I get it. But that's what every show on TV does in the season finale. Do some crazy thing that people will talk about and create the anticipation once the next season premieres. All said and done, 2010 might be the final season of Weeds. This season will definitely figure as one of the lows of Weeds. But yeah, whatever - there is a lot of good TV around.moreless
  • OK it's only natural !

    10
    From the beginning I was pretty sure that Pilar is going to be killed. But I was only little surprised that Shane did it because it was obvious from previous episodes that he is forming a really deviant behavior, so I knew he is going to do something bad but I admit I didn't see this coming !



    OK it's only natural because of the criminal surrounding that his mom provided for him. Nobody could expect that Shane or Silas stay completely normal ! Although we all know that he saw grave danger in Pilar because he knew he was shot because of her.



    I like this kind of development because one thing leads to another and this is a show, like in Sopranos moral values are not a subject, just entertainment !



    So it will be really interesting to see what's next in Season 6 for the Botwin family, especially Shane now !moreless
  • This episode seemed a bit on the borin side threwout..even though a lot was happening. the whole ending with Shane & the murder(?) is just...wow had me like WTFing all the way one thing Weeds KNOWS HOW to do is end season finales with cliffhangers!moreless

    Okay So the Grouping(by the end of episode)



    Celia(team leader), Doug (finances), Dean(Legal), Isabel(brains), along with mexican wrestler guy(supply), & gay indian guy(sales/distribution) all in a new nancy&co season1-3 type ordeal. pretty cool



    Andy & hospital doctor chick=engaged..but they were getting robbed? or something at the end and andy dipsetted out & left her.saw guns & knives..idk weird to end it there.



    nancy,esteban, shane,silas, & almostgoodguy mexican always in nancys house, all at this party and pillar threatens to kill silas and shane in some "tragic accident" and that she knew that nancy asked guermo to do her bidding. Right when its getting too heavy cuz ur freakin out by their conversation(outside by the pool in the back near no one) *SOhMaEnONE* is just BAM at the end...& its a cliffhanger..naturally.moreless
