  • A New Direction

    Weeds' second half of the third season kicks it up with Nancy offering to deal for Conrad now that they're out of their debt. Andy finds his niche in porn via his feet and Nancy wants Doug to sign over 50,000 dollars of illegal money so that she can get product and get back into the business. Celia signs her divorce papers and Peter's body pops up and there is a funeral held for him and Nancy takes a keen interest in Peter's son and ex-wife and Peter's partner in the DEA was apparently dirty with him in embezzling money, placing wire taps and other illegal acts. Thrilling episode, but not quite sure how I feel about her trying to help the Scottsons.moreless
  • The discovery of DEA hubby's body raises questions, some reasonable and others not so. Andy starts a new career role within the house. Celia and Sullivan get closer in their relationship.moreless

    Peter's body has been found. His Captain wasn't too pleased as there was alot of internal affairs file on him, so he tells Pete's partner to get everything together for a funeral and early retirement.

    The funeral goes ahead, Nancy watches from a safe distance, so as not to be too involved. She concentrates on his son and ex wife. She then starts getting some feelings regarding this issue and mounts her own little tailing operation of Peter's ex wife.

    Andy is still providing the catering for the porn house film set, but mentions to the director a change of direction, so it gets into the acting on the porn industry regarding the foot fetish angle. But he doesn't agree when that particular arrangement finishes and goes into the ethics of providing a service for the adult art industry. But at least we got to see alot of skin over the two episodes, even Celia too.

    Nancy pops into see Heylia regarding the debt that was outstanding with Marvin and tells her it is all been cleared away. She still doesn't really give Nancy a straight answer to anything that she asks.

    Nancy goes into the place of work of Peter's ex, in order to get to know a bit more about her. She ends up having a mammory xray, with Peters ex telling Nancy she knows who she is and wants to know why she is stalking her.moreless

    Really enjoyed this episode.

    I think my favourite scene had to be some of the conversation between Isabelle and Shane - his character is really growing on me this episode, also the descriptions of the kids were hilarious "Celia's dyke meaning Isabelle and "crazy eyes" for Shane.

    I also loved the new character, Valerie. This business of Nancy stalking her is quite well thought up, and the character's similarity to Nancy and mania are perfect. It will be interesting to see where this storyline goes, particularly after the shocking end of the episode.

    Once again I was a little bit disappointed with Andy's storyline though, as he could have done more.

    However, Celia's plot was quite touching this episode, and I hope Sullivan doesn't hurt her too much.moreless
  • Good contrast: 100% comedy vs 100% drama

    Celia's been underused this season which while isn't a problem, putting the focus back on her is difficult because restoring our interest in a character is always hard.

    But the writers did a pretty good job. Going back to the time when she had cancer was a good idea. She had her boobs removed, now all she got is fake boobs. This was the finest part of the episode if you ask me. Showing her softer side. It was also nice to see that Sullivan didn't care much for that, which, although, felt a little odd as he really seemed to care about sex and only sex.

    Moving on, Andy... well that guy's into everything. This time: porn. It was kinda comical to see *certain* bodyparts all around the episode. Well, actually seeing him doing porn tapes was plain hilarious. This time on, Nancy's plot thread wasn't very exciting, she was spying on Valerie(Peter's ex wife) and she found that they both .... well, let's just say they both have very similiar personality.

    Other than these, though, the episode was somewhat slow and jerkish. Still, good.moreless
  • a real side to Celia...

    So the horny little man that is running the Jesus community is driving me a bit crazy. Has he heard of sexual harassment?!? Why can't he just keep it in his parts. And I can not believe that Nancy actually gave in. I can believe that Celia gave in – I mean, she did sleep with Doug and others. For a show that has been a bit more action and a bit more comedy this season that scene when Celia was standing in front of her mirror looking at her scars and her body, that was very touching. When she was talking, a moment of honesty about her life and her body, it was different, but a realistic that the show needs every once in a while.moreless
