Next payday, will be buying season four.

The whole Nancy turning gangsta thing was hilarious, and the show somehow makes the criminals Nancy hangs out with funny and relatable.

I love the characters, the premise and the sarcastic twists of plot.

I'm disappointed to see many negative reviews of the 3rd Season. I got mine from Amazon last week and have already watched the whole season and it was great! I was nervous going in because I had heard from various people that season three wasn't as good, but after I got watching I was not at all sure what the fuss was about, the show is pushing itself and growing in new directions like it needs to if it's going to survive. The show challenges you to think about "drugs," what's right and wrong, and examines the inter-workings of suburbia with such cleverness that I am always pleasantly surprised.

Nancy Botwin is the perfect character, you love her, but sometimes want to slap her. Parker is an amazing actress and makes this show work from beginning to end. I also love her youngest Shane, he's excellent this season and glad to see him getting more and more airtime. This show is both funny and heartbreaking and blows most shows on TV right now out of the water.

I'm really excited to see how season 4 plays out. I think it's a great sign that they are breaking out of the "little boxes."

Don't listen to the negative reviews. If you liked season 1 and 2 you will love season 3!

Still entertaining, although not as believable. Everything seems really over-the-top. Weeds is still my favorite show though! *a note on the packaging. The discs weren't clicked in and they were rubbing around during shipping. I thought they were used at first since there were scratches on the them right out of the package.

If you liked the first two seasons for their creative story lines, originality, and the pushing-of-the-envelope characterization then you would be disappointed with season three. The story lines don't go anywhere... it's as though the writers stopped caring. And I don't particularly care for the various characters as I had in the previous two seasons. Don't buy, borrow season three and hope that the fourth is an improvement. I am not sure I want to continue with the fourth season, myself.

I loved the first 2 seasons of Weeds. 3--not so much.

For starters none of the characters are very likable. The characters have always been different shades of gray (which is what has always made them so interesting), but with season 3 several of the characters just become too unlikable to make me care about them. I always found Nancy likable enough, and her story interesting enough, that her story was enjoyable to follow. Not so with season 3. Nancy is annoying, overly-promiscuous, arrogant, a bad parent, and nearly void of any and all morals. She just doesn't have enough redeeming qualities for her to remain a good protagonist. In fact, I can't think of any redeeming qualities the character has this season. Maybe persistence? That still isn't anywhere close enough to make up for scene after scene of Nancy constantly, and uncaringly, hurting the people around her. (Also, she usually follows up by throwing a temper tantrum and trying to blame the other person, and even though the other characters sometimes buy her blame-reversing rants, her logic just never seems to work as well from this side of the screen.)

Writing-wise season 3 is also much more inferior to the first 2 seasons. Several of the stories end up going nowhere and serving no purpose other than to be cute; the way new characters are introduced is always sudden, stupid, and contrived; and several characters throughout the season behave in such unbelievable and absurd ways that it makes it hard to go along for the ride.

I thought the first two season were really clever, with season 3, however, it seems they've turned it all in for cheap laughs.

The one redeeming thing about the show is the ending.

The third season of Weeds is extremely uneven in its execution. The stories seem to start at one place, begin to progress in a particular direction and then end abruptly with no real resolution.
We begin the season with our protagonist, Nancy, being held at gunpoint in a standoff between two drug gangs, a tense situation that is resolved in a fairly lame fashion. She then becomes the pupil of a violent gangster who treats her like his little sister, after suggesting to another character that he intends to rape her, but this plot line too is just dropped.
A ridiculous subplot about Nancy Botwin's brother-in-law being accepted into the army, with a wound that would clearly exempt him from service (missing most of the toes from one foot), again goes nowhere, being dropped almost immediately.
I love this show and even found some humor in the antics of the characters in the third season, but the story telling in this season could have been so much stronger.
One hopes that the fourth season will turn out better.

I'm assuming anyone reading this already has a grasp on what the series is about and the basic characters around this. To recap, the show surrounds the life of Nancy Botwin and her attempts to acquire enough money to keep up with her rich lifestyle. Her occupation: pot dealer. Naturally Season's 1 and 2 capitalized on the obvious plotline here which is how to get a business going, keeping the secret from the right people, and still being a Mom at the same time.

One would think that Season's 2 finale gave them plenty to work with. Nancy is caught up in a Mexican Standoff with drug dealers on a deal going poorly because Cilas stole the pot she was about to sell. To make things worse, Cilas is on the verge of getting busted by Ceila and the cops for possession of the motherload of all pot, while Shane is with some crazy loon on a trip to Mexico.

I won't go into too many specific details of the series, because doing so would ruin the cliffhanger that those who don't have showtime haven't seen. But the biggest complaint is that the character storylines are completely changed and abandoned throughout the season. You see Andy for instance have a brief run-in with the army again and try out a porn career none of which has anything to do with Nancy or her secret. Shane's purpose in the series, along with Ashley Olsen, who is seen in 3 episodes for 10 minutes each (tops) seem largely irrelevant to everything. Perhaps my biggest problem with this season is that the series might have jumped the shark. Nancy's secret for (while keeping details out to the greatest extent possible) becomes "too public;" too many people know she deals and grows, so the tension that existed in Season's 1 or 2 completely dissipates.

With all this said, there are some highlights are Season 3.
