    Weed is becoming a journey that has drawn on for far too long. I feel like the rowdy child in the backseat, screaming "are we there yet?", yet I don't really care to 'get there'. Where the initial seasons were about the struggles of an everyday Valley mom trying to keep her family afloat, the show is now about a meniacal, manipulative, psychotic **** manipulating even her own children forWeed is becoming a journey that has drawn on for far too long. I feel like the rowdy child in the backseat, screaming "are we there yet?", yet I don't really care to 'get there'. Where the initial seasons were about the struggles of an everyday Valley mom trying to keep her family afloat, the show is now about a meniacal, manipulative, psychotic **** manipulating even her own children for person gain. Clever plot twists and story-telling has evolved into nothing but cheap humor and deviancy towards anything that could be considered a coherent and interesting story. I'm the type of person that goes down with the boat; I'm willing to watch sub-par TV if it means finishing a story I was at least previously interested in. Weeds is one of only 2-3 shows out of 50+ where I've actually turned off an episode mid-way and never watched it again. 7.5 season later, and I am done with this joke of a show. Expand

    This air of finality throws the many small, fine details of Parker's performance, the main reason for the show's existence, into sharp relief. [13 Aug 2012, p.42]

    Weeds does manage to maintain the dry humor that made it a hit to begin with, and this isn't the brand of listless cynicism we get from lesser comedy writers content to appear savvy and hip.

    I'm pretty sure there aren't drugs strong enough to get me to the bittersweet end of this series.
