I can't wait until season 6 premieres next summer!

Showtime's series Weeds is one of the best shows on television. Each season is consistently strong- with engaging, inventive stories, complex charecters and wonderful dark comedy. Mary-Louise Parker is absolutely phenomenal as Nancy Botwin, one of the most complex and uncompromising charecters to ever appear on television. Parker is backed by an always reliable supporting cast who bring humor and heart to the at times, very dark proceedings. Weeds' Fifth Season is the slowest one but that does not mean it's bad. It is the most character driven season, we get to see the true colors of these charecters and what they really want, and at times, its not pretty. Nancy continues her downward spiral and drags her youngest son Shane down with her. Silas becomes the emotional center of this extremely dysfunctional family, and at 18 has become the real father figure. Andy strives to get out of Nancy's grasp and start his own life while Celia tries her hardest to be a different person and at times actually tries to BE Nancy. This season is all about coming to terms with the inevitable and face the consequences. There is plenty here to reward long time fans of the show and viewers interested in the psychological make-up of these crazy charecters. The season finale promises to set up more of the themes established in this season. I cant wait to see what happens next. Weeds is still my personal favorite show on TV, layered, funny, deep and always surprising.

Format: DVD
Elizabeth Perkins (as Celia Hodes) is quickly taking over the lead role in Weeds while Mary-Louise Parker's Nancy character is becoming trite and quite frankly, annoying. You almost wish that Nancy Botwin would get killed off so that the show could drop all of the accumulated baggage of five seasons and start over fresh.

Season Five is the "Baby Season," where we watch Nancy Botwin struggle to have her new baby, support her family and keep herself alive all at the same time. Unfortunately the show quickly devolves into a generic drama that could be found on any number of network television stations. This season truly feels like the weed and drug trade are thrown in simply in order to keep the name of the show "Weeds," and I believe it was the drug dynamic that made this show as interesting as it was in the first place. While Nancy is off playing Mrs. Mexican Mafia, Silas and Doug partner up in order to attempt a legal Medicinal Marijuana storefront while Celia (after escaping from her daughter's kidnapping plot) attempts to capture the same success that Nancy had in seasons 1 and 2 by becoming the neighborhood "connection."

There are two bright spots in this season and they came out of left field for me: Shane and Dr. Audra Kitson (Alanis Morissette). Andy is still Andy - fantasizing about Nancy, hoping to replace Judah, but never quite living up to her expectations. He attempts to have a new relationship with Nancy's "on the side" ObGyn played remarkably well by Alanis Morissette. While you could pretty much cut and paste Andy's character from all the other seasons of Weeds, Morissette actually plays an interesting and quirky counterpart who attempts to make Andy "grow up" in order to have a real relationship with her.

Shane meanwhile, becomes broken.

I'm another victim of the poorly pressed disc #2. Anyone who buys this should check disc 2 to make sure it reads. They should do this a quickly as possible to make sure they can return their set, if they end up a victim. I highly recommend not buying this as a gift for anyone. No one is going to like getting a bad dvd set. Definitely not for Christmas!!!

Each season sees the characters especially the hemptress falling further into the darkness. The series is losing some of the funnier scenes of the earlier series - I still recall the laugh out loud lines created by the idea of a hybrid Prius being a perfect gang banger car because you could sneak up on the victims rather than using a flashy a gas-driven Escalade. It will be interesting to see how the writers pull back from the Mexican drug king pin and make Mary Louise Parker's character more likable. Weeds is still worth watching but it makes the viewer a voyeur at a train wreck.

I suggest if you like this show or have just discovered it buy the set of 1st 5 seasons. Well drawn characters, actors very appropriate for their roles. This show is pervertedly funny. Comedy equivalent to Seinfield. Good dvd's with no technical glitches.

It's a good season in terms of program content, but the quality of the DVD's is inexcusable. I returned the first set because the episodes on disk two were completely unwatchable. If the disk would load at all, it would only play the first half of the first episode, then it would freeze. It would load the first episode, and sometimes you could fast forward through this episode to get to subsequent episodes, but it would play about 5 seconds of them (blurred and skipping) before it froze and stopped. I tried playing this disk on 3 different DVD players, and all were varying shades of intolerable. So, I returned the disks, got a replacement and it was the same, the second disk was useless. Both sets were new, never opened. There are only 3 disks, so one third of them are worthless straight out of the package. Returned for refund. Will not order again.
