    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.
