    When I tell you that Weeds is off to a good start with Monday (Aug. 16) night's sixth season premiere, you have to know that what I'm saying is that it's pushing the story forward in interesting ways, not that Weeds has gone back to being the show it was in Season Two.
  2. So Weeds still has its highs. It just may not be all that long before we'll be getting the munchies.

    Season 6 staggers from incident to incident as Nancy and family run from their enemies--and the authorities. [13 Sep 2010, p.50]

    The result is both good and bad: On the one hand, Weeds feels fresh again. On the other, the writers still don't know what sort of show they're making, and the supporting cast keeps getting shoehorned into new roles.

    from a goofy suburbia satire this seasons became a great Odyssey through what America is today- and becoming tomorrow- Bravo for the Humpty Dumty terrific comeback- it took three chapters but it turned out to be one of the best shows today on TV- Hope it will go on . Go Nancy . but hey Rubicon was canceled so what can I say, It's the guys and gals up there in the decision making rooms..poor souls how check the pulse and Nancy & Co. shows us who's pulse is checked, GSA Expand

    The Botwin saga (or rather the Newman saga) continues. Season 6 welcomes the currently clandestine cannabis clan as they emigrate from Mexico to Seattle following an altercation with a former nemesis (former being the operative word). Although it pushes plausibility to the limit, the show is still as enjoyable as ever, with the new Seattle cityscape opening a new realm of possibilities; that is, if the writers play their cards right.

    Can I have my review deleted please? It is as follows:

    Weeds returns for its sixth season and this time the Botwin Bunch are on the run.
    Even though the characters are running from their problems, it seems that the writers instead are running from the problems that seasons four and five brought to the show. Weeds has always been able to maintain its levity that gave it a realistic touch and, surprisingly, has regained the balance between dark comedy and light drama that it lost in season five. It seems as though Weeds is getting back to business and bringing back the show it had left behind. While it has lost many great aspects it had in earlier seasons (mainly Celia, Conrad, Heylia, the city of Agrestic and its social satire) it goes on without them, not even taking a look back. Wither this means that it can go on to become a great show like it was in previous years is unknown. However, all we know for sure is that it has kept Nancy on a very long journey and this time she is going back to her roots, the drug business. Expand

    I must admit I really love it when the show gets good writers or they find their 'groove' again, Season 6 really seems to be getting it together again and some of the dialogue is very funny and very well written. I would really love this show to stay on track and really focus on what it is about WEED! = ) Perhaps the writers could actually smoke some WEED and put their escapades or enlightenment into the show...novel I know = P

    Love the show, love the writers, keep it up and don't drift like you did with the whole mexico thing! (well the croquet mallet was beautiful = D)

    Much like weed itself, Showtime's proverbial drug comedy has always had it's highs and lows. However where season 5 was more the shwaggy stuff from the corner, season 6 is more the high-grade stuff you order from your doctor. The new on-the-go plot setup is a breathe of fresh air from the more stagnant approach we are used to. It has given light to a realm of new ideas on how they can incorporate the main seller for the show; a family selling pot and all the problems/benefits that come with it. If you were disappointed with Showtime's season 5 product I must inform you that they have a new supplier; and his stuff is bomb! Expand

    This season is the worst one. It's just not that exciting or funny. But it's needed to push the show into a new direction (season 7). It leads up to make season 7, which is pretty good. Expand

    This show is has gone downhill a lot since season 4. It has gotten better since the beginning of this season, but the show is still on shaky grounds. The show isn't even about Weeds that much at all anymore! Expand
