  1. Kohan and her writers deserve perhaps more credit than they're getting for forcing change and making it artistically compelling.
  2. Even as the show deals with serious issues--immigration, euthanasia--Weeds feels lighter and funnier in the new season.
  3. The wonderful Weeds is back for its fourth season at 10 p.m. Monday, as our deliriously delightful dope dealers decamp to a beach town by the Mexican border. As illicit activities go, they prove definitively that, on Showtime at least, a little wacky tobbacky is way more fun than the things they do in Diary that can't be described here.

    Celia is facing some judgment of her own this season. Her not-entirely separate saga makes up the other half of Weeds‘ new start, such that the show is cleaved down its center, cutting awkwardly back and forth between Celia now imprisoned and Nancy fancy-free.
  5. Reviewed by: Verne Gay
    I think I comprise a third type--a wary Weeds fan who's happy it's back but hardly ecstatic.
  6. Weeds no longer seems propelled by the will to subvert all of our cultural images of maternal perfection; it seems insistent on celebrating Nancy’s parental fecklessness and narcissism, asking us to refrain from judgments when all we want to do now is throw stones.

    Starts off a little dull as the show struggles to find it's feet again after last season's conclusive finale, but picks up substantially mid-way through and builds towards an excellent finale. Yes, there are some subplots that didn't interest me, but the same could be said for season 3, and that which was good was REALLY good. Expand

    This season got a bit boring and predictable. Not at all as entertaining as season 2 and 3. I wish I could give it an 8.5, but it doesn't deserve a 9. :( Expand

    Also, seems to be ripping off Outrageous Fortune which if it was on this database would be a 10 rating every season! All five of them. That was/is a show that hasn't had to overhaul to get the viewers. Made in New Zealand and thus not noticed by this website. Very unfortunate. Expand
