    So, season three has ended. What did everyone think? I'm a little worried because it works pretty well as a series finale. In fact, it works VERY well as a series finale. But I thought for sure it would be renewed because it does very well on Showtime, I thought. Anyone know what's up with this?

    In any case, if it were to be the last ep, I love the way it went out. It was quite perfect with Majestic burning down and Nancy making a decision to move on. There were a few looses ends...like with Celia, Nancy and the DEA.

    I like how Silas was suddenly "over" Tara. She was totally Jesus-crazy. I also loved Doug's banjo and singing throughout the recreation center.

    So, any thoughts on the finale or season three or the show at large?

    The last scene of the finale was amazing! And yeah it definitely felt very series finale-ish but I read it was renewed for s4 so I'm not TOO worried. Although filming will probably be affected by the strike.

    Doug+Banjo=OTP. Seriously Doug should go around with a banjo in every episode.

    I LOVED the scene with Isabel and her dad. Damn is she turning into her mother or what lmao. "You have to stop being such a pussy because I won't always be around." hee!

    Really loved when Nancy pretended to talk to Judah because Shane didn't want to leave. This whole Shane sees Judah thing is pretty weird though. I liked when he asked Isabel if she was really a lesbian and she asked him about talking to his dead dad and he got all uncomfortable. Poor Shane.

    And uh-oh. Looks like Conrad is realizing that him and Nancy have absolutely nothing in common except for weed. This makes me sad. Although Guillermo is kind of hot and surprisingly insightful. I actually thought Nancy was going to kiss him when they were standing on the hill looking at the burning valley. I bet they pursue that relationship next season.

    So a lot of people have been hating on season 3 but I loved it just as much as the last two seasons. Okay not as much as season 2 which is my definite favorite but I still think it's pretty great.

      Oh, I agree. I thought that scene was spectacular. For a thug he's like...a nice, caring guy. He sees Nancy doesn't belong in this life and he sort of softly pushing her to see it too. But I like how he offered her a higher position on the drug distribution ladder. I definitely see some sparks. But yeah...poor Conrad.

      Whatever! I thought ti was fantastic. It had me riveted. I Weeds. It's so fun and quirky and well done.

      Thanks for the heads up on a s4. I actually hadn't heard that anywhere and I am usually really on top of these things.

        I've only seen the first two episodes but so far, I'm loving it SO much!

        I was a bit skeptical at watching the show at first, because the premise is a bit iffy. But, I want to compare it to Buffy. The name is so misleading, making you think it's such a stupid teen show, but it's not.

        I love the actress who plays Nancy and her breakdown at the end of the episode. All the characters are so interesting and I loved the videos with Nancy's husband, when Shane watches them. And is that Supernatural!Dad I spy?

        I have more thoughts, which I'll come back to later. Just gotta say, love it.

          Yeah, I have been a big Mary-Louise Parker fan since the early nineties. She's so very cool and offbeat. And yes! That indeed is Jeffery Dean Morgan.

          Keep watching! You'll be so surprised how much Celia and Doug grow on you. I really love those two characters. They are such horrible people but fun and utterly hilarious.

          And just wait till Andy comes to join the cat! He's a hoot. You'll see.

            She's just fun!

            Celia, I love! She's just the worst soccer mom you could have lol! Doug is okay, but not sure who he is in Nancy's life. He keeps her money and is one of her clients? Well, I loved him just randomly throwing stuff at Nancy haha!

            I'll wait and see who this Andy fella is

              Yeah, he is an accountant and she is a client and friend. He doesn't have the largest part in s1, if I recall, but he gets to do some downright wacky stuff later on!

                Just finished 1x04!

                Loved all of them so far, but 1x04 was definitely my favorite! Nancy's brother in-law is hilarious and I hope we see more of him! The Baker who was obsessed with excersize was the highlight for me, though! She was just hilarious, and Mary-Louise Parker played that scene brilliantly! Plus, I love Silas's girlfriend, Megan, a lot more than Celia's older daughter. Speaking of Celia, how AMAZING was that ending?! I won't put it in spoiler tags because it's a year old, but Celia has cancer! I hope she doesn't die

                Overall, an amazing show so far. It is hilarious but shows amazing hints of drama as well as amazing acting. Love this show, so much!

                  Yeah, Andy sticks around for the long haul. But Celia's older daughter might be a different story. I don't think that's really spoilery stuff for you so I thought it okay to mention. But yeah, Andy is just so wacky and funny. Just wait until you see what kind of hijinks he gets into in the coming eps and seasons. I won't let you in on Celia's fate but she's also gets into some wacky adventures herself, as does all the cast.

                  It's such a great show and I am glad you are enjoying it, Ben! I watched the whole first season in two days. And the whole second in just one. I couldn't stop myself!

                  The first season is pretty expository; it sets up everything and gets the characters established. Season two really delves into a lot more issues. I prefer it to the first myself. So if you like 1, you'll love 2!

                  We had a Weeds thread before but I think it got moved to Dead after a lack of posting in it. There's not a lot of Weeds watchers. Namely there is me and Heather and Joe and you!

                    YAY for more Andy! Does that mean we see more of Celia's older one? Eh, she's okay, I guess. I never really liked her, but she was only in the Pilot, and in that I loved her totally pissing Celia off

                    If only I could finish the season tonight, I would. But, since I'm watching them online, it takes about an hour to load and find, so.... I need to buy them, like....now

                      I see them on sale all the time! I actually got my s1 for $19. And I see s2 a lot of $22 or so. Totally worth it, if you ask me.

                      Good luck on the watching though! I'm off to watch me some more Battlestar Galactica. woo!

                        Watched 1.06 "Lude Awakening" and forgot to comment on it. So, here I go!

                        First off, I love Celia so much! I love how she gave away all her belongings and how the maid wanted everything there and tried to steal the stuff Celia gave to Nancy!

                        For some reason, I don't seem to like Doug very much I mean, he's okay, but not that funny. I did love this line, though: "What do you call the thing between the dick and the assh*le?" "The coffee table".

                        I'll comment more on everything later, but I want to get the Boxset first and watch all of them again in order + special features

                          Well, Doug doesn't get much to do in the first season. But he is a huge comic relief later on. He totally grew on me and maybe he will on yout oo.

                            Ah man I love this show. Watched the first 2 seasons in about a week and then took it a little slower with season 3, really glad to see it's coming back for season 4, I think my favourite character is Andy, he's just really really funny and I think so far my fave season has been 2, but I've really enjoyed them all.

                              Back again

                              I just finished Season 1 and WOW! I really, really loved it! Celia's development is absolutely amazing, and then she goes back again! It's so interesting that it delves into what a near death experience can do. Shane kinda sucks, also. I mean, he is one messed up ten year old boy. But he's ten! It's not like he's three!

                              My favorite episodes have been 1.06 "Dead In The Nethers" (because it's just so damn fun! The party is great and I loved seeing Celia and Conrad go together and seeing Nancy's two lives combine is great), 1.09 "The Punishment Lighter" (because it opens up a whole new theme in Weeds. The whole idea of other dealers going after her and making alliances with others, etc. is just very well thought out. I really, really love this episode! Also, Shane so deserved that punch. Might possibly be my favorite!), and 1.10 "The Godmother" (because so much happens! All the storylines come plunging together! Silas's story and how Nancy's losing him, Shane's lonliness, Nancy's need for a romantic life and friends and family, her business, Andy's craziness, all of it! Loved it. Can't wait for next season.)!

                              My least favorite episode has to be 1.07 "A Higher Education" because I didn't like any of the storylines, other than Celia's. Celia's storyline is amazing because I loved seeing her change. So, I can't say I disliked it, because part of it I loved.

                              Love this show so damn much!

                                Yeah, this is sort of theme that recurs throughout the series. You'll be seeing many more alliances as well disconnects. It be cool.

                                I think one of my fave Weeds scenes ever is from season one's 1.05 Lude Awakening:

                                Celia Hodes: Everyone thinks I've lost my mind.
                                Shane Botwin: Everyone thinks I'm weird.
                                Celia Hodes: Well, I can see how you might give that impression.
                                Shane Botwin: I really don't care what they think.
                                Celia Hodes: Good for you. Let your freak flag fly.
                                Shane Botwin: Really?
                                Celia Hodes: Really. I've recently stopped giving a shit what anyone thinks, and I gotta tell you, I feel great.
                                Shane Botwin: But you have cancer.
                                Celia Hodes: And you have a dead father. Both of us make people really uncomfortable. There's no way around it. So either we can feel all self-concious and pretend that everything's normal, or we can just be our strange selves.
                                Shane Botwin: Thanks, Mrs. Hodes.
                                Celia Hodes: For what?
                                Shane Botwin: For telling me the truth.
                                Celia Hodes: You're welcome. It's a bitch, though, ain't it?
                                Man, I got a little misty-eyed. It's so lovely. And you see Celia as ulnerable and human and she is being *gasp* nice.

                                On to season two, Ben!!! Come on, now! I'm glad you are liking it. There needs to be more Weeds fan. For realz.

                                  I really love that scene, too! It made me like Celia even MORE. Celia and Nancy are tied for my favorite character, because both are so complex but so completely different. I can't wait to see how Celia turns back into her old bitchy self now that her cancer is not life threatening.

                                  Season 2, yeah! Tomorrow, hopefully

                                    Sorry for double post, but....

                                    Oh. My. Gawd.

                                    Okay, I had to. This season has been one of the best seasons of television ever. Every episode ends with a huge dramatic and amazing cliffhanger. It's 10 times funnier than Season 1 and 10 times dramatic than Season 1. It's mind blowing. It's....amazing. I just finished 2x10 "Mile Deep and a Foot Wide", and I have two more episodes in the season to finish. But, I'm amazing. Mary-Louise Parker is easily my favorite actress after her performance in 2x09 "Bash". Her smashing of the donkey was chilling. And the usage of songs! Such as 2x02's cliffhanger ("I know you're a drug dealer") and 2x04's cliffhanger ("Megan's pregnant, and we're keeping it"). Also, the humor's outstanding, STILL.

                                    In this episode, 2x10, Andy's crazy ex from Alaska comes and at first she is AMAZING comic relief. I was literally on the floor laughing. Her, "I'm tired. The food looks nice. I wrote a book." *falls to sleep* is just hilarious. But, her scene with Andy in the car is great. "We've done so many felonies. I'm publishing it as fiction." "Then, why'd ya come out here?" "To save you." I love it.

                                    I love this show. It's become one of my all time favorites. "Weeds" rules.

                                    PS: Peter's a bitch. Spying on Nancy like that

                                      I am so glad you have become a fan! (And of BSG too. ) Two truly great shows. Season 1 hooks you and then damn! Season two comes along and you're left like "wha??" "eek: Because it's so totally amazing and awesome.

                                      I've been a Mary-Louise fan for well over a decade and am so glad she found a project that gets her recognized and that gives her consistently good material to work with.

                                      And Ben? Season three just keeps the awesomeness flowing.

                                        OMG.

                                        No, let me rephrase that.

                                        OMFG.

                                        Peter's a heartless bitch....so, he was killed :eek: I can't believe Hallya did that! And the cliffhanger!? :eek: And the ending to 2.11 "Yeah, Like Tomatoes"!? :eek: Let me start at 2x11.

                                        Loved it, and it made me hate Peter even more! I already hated him as a love interest, but as he stomped on Conrad, I despised him. And Nancy's reaction in that scene is remarkable. But, the highlight of this episode is the end, and is definitely one of my favorite scenes of the series (the endings this season have been remarkable). When she takes the ax and breaks through the door and sees that Silas stole all the Drug Free stuff for Nancy! Mary-Louise Parker does it again.

                                        The finale was fantastic, and my favorite episode of the series, I think! I LOVED the graduation scene! Somehow, I knew Shane was going to do that. "You have failed us!" I also loved how Gretchen was jealous of Shane and Kat! Hilarious! I'm a bit said that Kat left for Pittsburgh, but glad that she brought Shane along with her, because that means we HAVE to see more of her. I also loved how "Abumchuck" was afraid of pissed off Celia. Celia's reaction to shooting a gun was priceless. But, the best scene in the episode was the scene where all five men have their guns pointed at Nancy, who doesn't have the weed. Mary-Louise Parker does it AGAIN, and the song used it amazing! The last shot of all the men pointing their guns, Conrad's head down, and Nancy looking up towards the sky while the camera does an over head shot of the vault ("Drug Free Zone") is truly amazing. I can't wait for s3 to come out of DVD. I'm pissed now that I can't watch it immediately!

                                        Season 2 was amazing.
