Move over, Jesse Eisenberg, and go take a nap, Morgan Freeman! In the ranking of rude or disinterested interviews in the recent months, I think this new Bruce Willis one really takes the cake. And then throws it on the ground and stomps all over it because it was Jamie Edwards’ birthday cake, and Bruce Willis hates Jamie Edwards. More
Last night’s series finale of Weeds rushed to tie up loose ends with a massive flash forward that mirrored just how absurd the show became in its terminal seasons. (Spoilers, obviously.) More
After having to wait an excruciating 278 days for its return, I’ll admit I was almost a little bit cross with Weeds. How dare they drop a cliffhanger like that on me and then peace out? Classic Nancy Botwin. But then the season 8 premiere came along, and like Nancy’s dogged spaniel Andy, I was hers once again. (Spoilers ahead!) More
Following her hospitalization for “exhaustion,” Demi Moore has reportedly been replaced in the role of feminist leader Gloria Steinem in 70s porn biopic Lovelace by fellow ageless beauty Mary-Louise Parker. Was this a good casting choice? More
It’s official, the film adaptation of Jonathan Franzen‘s novel The Corrections will air as a series on HBO. Hooray – I love that book so much! Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper are already cast as the matriarch and patriarch of a dysfunctional family, but who will play the other characters? Like annoyingly rebellious academic Chip? Or chef Denise, who’s exploring her sexuality? Here’s my dream cast — take notes, HBO. More
Mary-Louise Parker‘s Weeds character Nancy Botwin is one of my all-time favorites from all of TV. She’s cool and whip-smart and she doesn’t give a damn about anything. Nancy’s lack of morality makes her super compelling, and it seems to be something Mary-Louise likes about her character as well. She wrote a letter directed at Nancy in Bullett.
Here’s an excerpt: More
After an uneven but mostly entertaining seventh season, the finale to the latest Weeds cycle left something to be desired. Band Aid solutions, a lack of real tension, and a cliffhanger out of fucking nowhere all made for a finale that was somewhat less thrilling than the airport stand-off of season six. Then again, once you’ve had Nancy turn herself into the FBI to save herself and her family from being murdered by a Mexican drug boss/mayor, it’s hard to figure out where to go from there. More
This week’s episode of Weeds continued the heartbreaking plotline of mother vs. son and ended with a misunderstanding of Shakespearean proportions. Luckily, there was a lot of comic relief as well, with Doug Wilson continuing to justify his existence via one of the most awkward seductions in television history. Let’s take a look. More
Throughout this show’s entire absurd run, Nancy has depleted our empathy for her in a plethora of fun-to-watch ways. This is a woman who’s lied, abused her magic vagina powers, set things on fire, and gotten people killed, all while sipping lackadaisically on venti low-fat lattes. But despite it all, her abiding love for her sons remains her sole redeeming virtue, and we got to see that in action last night thanks to Shane and Silas’ respective slip-ups. More

This episode finally saw Nancy get out from under the fascist boots of both the law and Zoya, only to land back in the kind of hot water with which she’s familiar: hot water that is full of rival drug dealers. This episode was all about subverting our expectations. Smart Shane did something stupid, competent Silas did something incompetent, and Doug Wilson actually did something helpful! More
Hello and welcome to this, the latest television show to be added to Crushable’s roster of recaps. I realize that we’re halfway through the second season already, but I’m hoping most of the people who watch this show are too high to notice. J/k, Weeds is a great, complex television program and I’m sure all of its fans are very smart. Let’s begin! (SPOILER ALERT) More
Who says we don’t have good female role models on cable television? Sure, there’s plenty of ladies slumming it on trashy reality shows, but there are also plenty of sexy, type-A ladies who know their way around a fierce button-up blouse. These womyn can shoot guns, catch bad guys, win court cases and save lives as good as any man – and they do it in pumps! If that isn’t female empowerment, I don’t know what is. Seriously, I don’t know anymore. It may be a man’s world, but the boys be droolin’ while the girls be rulin,’ amirightladies? More
Brangelina‘s multiracial brood is so 2007. Now, it’s all about celebrities who break up – if they were even together – before the baby is born and figure out a way to co-parent. The future is upon us, and it’s trying to behave like an adult. More
A source tells Crushable that swoonworthy Weeds star Demian Bichir was sitting alone in The Apple Pan in L.A. eating a cheeseburger. (It’s like Sad Keanu meets Drunk Hasselhoff!) Bichir plays Esteban, the drug lord/baby daddy of Nancy, Mary Louise Parker‘s character on Weeds, so he shouldn’t be hurting for companionship. He’s also hot, so there’s that. More
