What I'm Watching: Weeds

Weeds: Season 3, Episode 7 "He Taught Me How To Drive By" (B+)

I have been keeping up with this show, but not with ample time to review each episode. I managed to get ahold of this installment in time this week, however, and will therefore offer up my thoughts. I am truly enjoying this season of "Weeds", which has realized that its storylines are more than often a bit far-fetched, and having fully embraced that fact, is succeeding with flying colors at being fantastically entertaining and enjoyable. Mary-Louise Parker, for one, is having a great time and doing a terrific job as Nancy, whose reactions to most of U-Turn and Marvin's comments are priceless. I am impressed with how the U-Turn saga was concluded, since that could really have dragged on too much, but now it should be a great direction for the show. I absolutely love Shane falling for the girl, then getting her stolen by Isabelle, a more severe case because she "thinks she might be a homosexual." The music in this show is so great. Too bad that Peter actually is dead, I was hoping he was secretly on the run or something. At least we still have the great Matthew Modine as Nancy's new beau. Nancy's comment at the end is quite funny and so true: "I have to warn you, the last two men I slept with ended up dead."
