  • A poor thought out episode with one basic plot twist at the end that has no relevance to the show by any means

    8.0
    This episode may have been one of the more lackluster episodes of the year. There was absolutely no plot development for next season....Nancy pregnant??? Common now, the show is called Weeds, it is about the trials and tribulation of drug a drug trafficking suburban mother who has to overcome basic obstacles of being a mother while selling illegal drugs. Not a soap opera about a mother who is having a relationship with a Mexican drug lord. The characters are losing their luster, and the humor is slowly fading. Great show, and I will definitely watch next season, but big moves need to be mad next year.moreless
  • Is Nancy a done deal?

    7.5
    After all the criticism of Season 4, after all the uneventful episodes Weeds has finally gotten back on track with the last two installments of the year. The comedy is certainly not as strong as it once was, but the program is moving toward the dark dramedy genre and doing it well.



    While there are smarter shows, funnier shows, better produced shows out there very few combine great writing with cliffhangers and comedy for a unique blend like Weeds does.



    Kevin Nealon could be funny reading an epitaph yet Weeds fines a way to make him excel even more at the comedic game. Justin Kirk has established himself as one of the funniest men on TV through the show. Mary Louise Parker has reinvigorated her career with the show. Weeds has helped actors realize their true potential and put together a strong ensemble for the viewer to enjoy.



    This episode was far from perfect. Shane and Silas continue to have zero screen presence and I am not even one hundred percent sure what is going on with Celia, but luckily the good outweigh the bad here. A strong season finale and I cannot wait to see what hijinx ensue next year.moreless
  • It keeps you wandering and guessing and getting more tense until Nancy drops the bomb! !!!!Spoiler alert!!!!!

    9.9
    Wow! is all i can say... this was a savior episode, there had been some below average episodes in this season, but it seems worth tolerating to get to this shocking conclusion. in my opinion the best thing to come out of this episode was the great dollop of Silas flesh we see in the scene with Julie Bowen and her character (Lisa's) ex husband. I swear, I got butterflies watching that.

    I particularly enjoyed how the tension was slowly built up throughout the episode, the first jolt was felt in the scene where the DEA guy threw Doug out of the interview room. and then the long wait to the last scene aloud it to build steadily as we knew Nancy would make the inevitable journey to see Esteban.

    The whole episode was incredibly well executed and now im pissed that i have to wait ten months or so till the next one!moreless
  • Weeds ends on a "high" note, but is the ending good for the story? Only time will tell. The review includes SPOILERS.

    9.0
    The fourth season of Weeds has come to a close. It was an interesting one, but my least favorite. Let's start at where we left off last. Nancy is at Roy Till's office and Dean is her lawyer. The other lawyer makes good points against Nancy, yet because of her deal with him, Till decides to ignore him. The deal's off when Till finds out that his partner in bed and the DEA has been found skinned by Esteban's men at the border.



    Cut to another controversial scene in which Silas is in the older woman's bed. Her husband walks in and for some reason, the felt it was necessary to show Parrish's butt.



    Silas goes home, but everyone has forgotten about his 18th birthday.



    Celia travels to deep Mexico where (bet you didn't see this one coming) Quinn is. She pumps her full of drugs and explains that she is going to sell her body parts.



    Enough of the plot, let's just cut to the chase. Nancy's pregnant. Good twist, but still not the best finale. Hopefully, next season will be better.moreless
