Downhill. It's okay to watch when I'm bored, but the story keeps getting more and more outrageous, and I don't care for all the mafia crap. Wish she would have stuck more to growing weed, but I guess they need some kinda nutty story to keep it running so long. I never cared for the Sopranos, Lost, or any of those soap opera type series, because I like some kind of resolution when I get done watching something, not just more crazy ass bullshit to wait a week or more to find out about. Just cause it's on in the evening doesn't make me like soap operas any more, although at least they have better actors in those type series..

It's a BBC show. I get it on IFC network. http://www.bbc.co.uk...rammes/b006w7b3 http://en.wikipedia....eal_(TV_series) If you google it you will get more info. Funny as hell...and addictive too!

First two seasons were gold. Third was cheesy but funny. STRAIGHT down the tubes from there. Is this show even about weed anymore? And don't get me started about the writing. My guess is that there was a serious walkout of creative talent. As a diehard fan of Mary Louise Parker and weed, I'm very disapointed.

Okay, been a week, I'm gonna weigh in on my poll.

I think Weeds has gotten a lot better over the years as the show has developed.

When ya get into the illegal production biz for cash (instead of head stash and barter materials), ya tend to get dragged deeper into the biz. I've seen that shit happen time and time and time again at this point. Qualified chemists who also sell end up sponsored - that is how the game works.

For Nancy to still be selling MILF-weed would be totally unrealistic (IMHO) and it would be boring. To see how it has grown beyond her control and begun to involve every member of her immediate circle rings very true IME.

Also - I mean it goes without saying - but Mary Louise Parker is so incredibly beautiful...that crooked smile gets me ever time.

I think it's still a kick ass show that has gotten better with age.

Shane beating that Pilar bitch down was friggin' incredible. They could never have done that in the 1st or 2nd season - Shane was still a relatively normal kid at that point.

IMO, Breaking Bad is better, but it has progressed in a similar way with the character development arcs. Walt can get away with lots of stuff now that never would have worked if we hadn't watched his character develop/degrade/change over the full arc.

It's had it's ups and downs, but all in all funny family entertainment. Sad to see Nancy give herself up.

Dexter is also a show that kicks much ass because of the incredible character arcs and change we have watched them go through. Good call there.
