It gets worse IMO

Just watched Episode 10, and not so hot - not liking where the show is going. Started off strong, wobled a bit, got good a gain, and nwo seems to be taking a dive - pitty.

That was the season finale.

Anyway, the ten episiodes of Weeds were some of the best television I've seen. Honest and nuanced character development, blistering social commentary and plot archs that unfolded beautifully as the season developed. I find it hard to believe people don't like this series. Mary Louise Parker rocked it so hard in the lead roll that I think she's got another Emmy all but locked up.

Then there's Nealon. God bless him.

The whole stabbing at the bush and the war seemed a little forced, and like they were grasping for straws - it didnt seem to flow naturally with the rest of the plot and kinda had me rolling my eyes. I'm all for 'political comentrary', and even a stab at bush - but this just felt a little too "Ok, we have a soapbox, now lets stand on it!"

All in all, I enjoyed the series quite a bit, just found that the last episode or two felt like they were grasping for straws just a little too hard.

Out of curiousity: what shows do you who aren't feeling Weeds thus far, enjoy?
Some recent shows I enjoy:

Sopranos
Prison Break (guilty pleasure)
House (guilty pleasure)
Family Guy
Trailer Park Boys
Quentin Tarentino CSI was the best TV I've ever seen I think
Battlestar Gallatica is amazing

hmm good list. Ill also have to admit Pirson Brealk as a guilty pleasure.

But for my list remove House and Battlestar Gallatica and add Southpark and Weeds
