"Not a bean on the tortilla. I repeat not a bean on the tortilla."
This episode started off really slowly. The fact that Shane was on the screen for a long time tells the viewer that this is a filler installment and is not going to be great.
The addition of the mayor doesn't seem plausible in the least. The insufferable Elizabeth Perkins is also beginning to aggravate me. Julie Bowen is mildly funny, but there's a reason she has bounced around from show to show. She just doesn't entertain the viewer and her acting is not compelling enough.
Weeds was once a dark, witty and unique comedy. The rubbish that is Season 4 is starting to become like work just to get through each episode. The storylines are incredibly outrageous such as the mayor being involved in drug dealing and Andy and Doug running a coyote business. While Mary-Louise Parker, Kevin Nealon and Justin Kirk are all funny the writing on this shown has gone downhill and it is falling in the ranks of TV comedies faster than Vonage stock.
