All Caught Up With...Weeds

Weeds: Season 3, Episodes 1-4 "Doing the Backstroke"/"A Pool and His Money"/"The Brick Dance"/"Shit Highway" (B+)

I must say that I wholeheartedly enjoyed each and every one of these episodes. Despite the fact that the plot is wonderfully wacky and so wholly unrealistic all the time, it has remained relentlessly entertaining. Hopefully the arrival of an Olsen twin at some point soon will not impact the show's quality, but they are doing quite well right now. Former "Desperate Housewives" castmate Page Kennedy fits in well with some of the more crazy characters, like Helia. Marvin is an enjoyable comic relief. I particularly have to admire the relationship between Doug and Dean, which just never stops being funny. Mary-Louise Parker is doing a commendable job as Nancy, trying to keep it together after everything. I wonder if Peter is still alive? I think so.
