Last night’s series finale ofÂ WeedsÂ 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
The following is a guest post from our friends at Luckymag.com.
Doesn’t it seem like the bestâ€”or at least most lovedâ€”actors always bring some bit of their own personality to their roles? Audrey Hepburn was just so Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn Monroe was just so Marilyn. And many of today’s biggest stars, from Tom Hanks (always comes off as so damn nice) to Jennifer Aniston (ever so girl-next-door relatable) just have that thing where you feel like you’re watching them, even as they transform into other characters.
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
This week’s episode of Weeds featured two of the things that made the pre-Mexico seasons of this show great: class-based satire, and Oedipal struggle. The “Lifestyle of the Rich and the Stupid” Hamptons interlude almost made up for the episode’s heartbreaking final scene. Almost. 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
This week’s episode of Weeds brought a lot of plot lines together into one huge, incredibly dangerous tangle. As far as Nancy’s situations go, it’s not “Mexican drug boss wants to kill me” bad, but it is, nonetheless, quite bad. How did she get back into trouble so quickly? Let’s take a look. 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 donâ€™t have good female role models on cable television? Sure, thereâ€™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 â€“ and they do it in pumps! If that isnâ€™t female empowerment, I donâ€™t know what is. Seriously, I donâ€™t know anymore. It may be a manâ€™s world, but the boys be droolinâ€™ while the girls be rulin,â€™ amirightladies? 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
Crush This is your weekly guide to what’s new in music, movies and TV. As Thanksgiving and the holidays creep closer and closer, we see a lot of season finales.
