Had a great drunken debate with a friend of mine over the weekend. He made some incredibly good points and I wanna hear from some other folks.

I don't want to color any responses by stating my feelings - I want to hear yours.

What'cha think?

I love weeds.

Had watched it a few years ago, but never really got into it.

I recently acquired up to season 4, watched it all in about 3 weeks.


Whether or not it's getting better is kinda hard to say. I dunno how I feel about after the move and whatnot.

It's definitely getting more complicated, and shes getting deeper and deeper.

I sorta like the outline of it though. Cool how nancy just keeps digging a deeper and deeper grave. Getting further and further in. Sorta a cool ?metaphor? for drugs(dealing) in general.

WEAK.

i gritted my teeth through about 3 episodes before the cliched stereotypes (is that redundant?) and weak storylines became unbearable.

just my .02

I've only watched up to the fire, but i rather feel like it's getting worse. This is mostly because i feel like the main character is getting less sympathetic and likable as time goes on, so i'm no longer really caring if she gets out of the outrageous situations she gets into.

I agree that Kevin Nealon is indeed, kickass. :)

I have seen the series up through episode 8 of this season. I like the show myself, and I suppose I liked it better when it was a MILF dealing herb to interesting characters. But it is still damn funny and better than most anything else on TV. I don't want to give the story away for those not up to speed, so I will stop there. I would say it is about the same in terms of quality--good acting, witty writing.

How do I get an EL-bow of dat dank ass MILFweed?
AND:
Can I get it to go wit sum stinky red haired Milfy milf on top pleaze?
He likes it! Hey Snoopy!


They changed writers in the 4th season...since then, its dive dive dive.

Kevin saves the show; that banjo playin while rome is burning and jesus freaka'sis goin all nark-a-bibla-istic on the good herb, was a hoot.


as far as the vato's I told milfy not to burn um, but she did, her nature an all.


the show is reminding me of burn...but without the paydayz johnny was cashing in on.

Weeds was humorous during the 4 seasons! But now they have turned it into a glorified soap opera to me any way..... Along with more negative under tones of MJ.

I like it. I am actually rather surprised at all the negative reactions listed above. Maybe I live in a different world, but I see the show addressing lots of issues associated with marijuana. I like how at first she had to contend with small time thugs and gangstas, and how when she gets even deeper into it she has to deal with the Mexican mafia. The show would have truely become a soap opera if they'd gone north instead of south, gotta have some sort of protagonist, right?

I think my favorite episode is the ayahuasca one towards the end of the 4th season.

BTW if the show just involved Mary Loise-Parker strutting around I'd be ok with that too :loveeyes::loveeyes::loveeyes:

I totally agree with everyone loving kevin nealon though. Hes by far the best character on the show.

Him and U-turn. Uturn HILARIOUS.

Agree on Kevin Nealon...banjo playing was funny, but the episode in season 4 where he writes the letter to his ex-wife..I didn't see the end of that scene coming...HA!

Ain't that the truth. Mary Louise-Parker is stunningly beautiful. I LOVE the promotional posters with her in lingerie...and that tub scene was real, real nice...

I have a thing for that crooked smile/minor speech impediment thing. Patrica Arquette and Kyra Sedgwick also turn the proverbial crank for me.

Weeds is great, but I'm already addicted to HUNG! That shit is ridiculous... He went from porking a fattie to trying to please the unpleasable! He was comparing her to the restaurant customers that complain about hair in food for a free dinner!:horse:

I love Showtime... It took over as soon as The Sapranos was over... Although the Tudors is a great show...can't wait for the next season!
