Weeds: Season Three continues the dark line of comedy that emerged in the previous season for this Showtime series. The story picks up exactly where it left off, with Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) faced with a half-dozen guns pointing at her in her own kitchen, while an Armenian gang and Nancy's buyer, U-Turn (Page Kennedy), both demand she turn over her entire stash of marijuana (worth several hundred thousand dollars). Problem is, the pot is in the trunk of on-again, off-again friend Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), whose car has been stolen by Nancy's oldest son, Silas (Hunter Parrish). Silas wants in on mom's business, but his timing couldn't be worse as Celia and a police officer show up to reclaim the car while Nancy is still at gunpoint. The fallout from all this is that Nancy ends up working for U-Turn to repay her debt to him, a dangerous relationship that sends Nancy down a rabbit hole of underworld threats and violence. Meanwhile, Celia gets booted out of her home by her husband and becomes estranged from her young daughter, Isabelle (Allie Grant), who insists she's a lesbian. Celia rebounds a bit when a corrupt developer (Matthew Modine) gives her a house in exchange for her support on city council for one of his schemes. That goes wrong, too, when Celia allows Nancy, Doug (Kevin Nealon), and Conrad (Romany Malco), all of whom go into business after U-Turn stops being a problem, to put their endangered trove of marijuana plants in her house. Nancy's other son, Shane (Alexander Gould), claims he can see and talk to the ghost of Nancy's late husband, and Nancy's brother-in-law Andy (Justin Kirk) goes AWOL from the U.S. Army after his comrade is deliberately killed in an experimental missile test. As always, it's one thing after another on Weeds, and the blend of humor and suspense is uniquely compelling. Parker and the rest of the cast pull off some pretty surreal situations with great credibility. The show's lead star, particularly, can carry moments of blended terror and comedy: one of the season's most memorable moments finds Nancy forced to put on a sexy dance for a group of drug dealers in order to pick up a package U-Turn requires. The scene is humiliating, frightening, sexy, and comical all at once. Few actresses could have pulled it off, but Parker does. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

America's favorite pot-dealing soccer mom is more addictive than ever in the third season of WEEDS, the highly acclaimed Showtime(r) Original Series. Emmy (r) and Golden Globe(r) winner MARY-LOUISE PARKER stars as Nancy Botwin, a single mom who resorts to dealing pot after her husband dies suddenly. But when an off beat way to make ends meet grows into a mini-empire, the mother of all dealers finds she may be in over her head - and on the verge of taking everyone else with her. Hilarious and subversive, WEEDS is the hit that put the herb in suburb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weeds Continues to Grow June 13, 2008
Format:DVD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Weeds season 3 July 14, 2008
By Trish
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 20, 2009
By Lourdes
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 Jumps the Shark June 22, 2008
By Exitmat
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven season September 8, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars is weeds going to pot ? June 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Weeds 1 and 2 have the edge over season 3. They seem to be cutting corners a little, not quite as creative, and are they shortening the episodes ? It seemed so to me. The plot lost linearity I felt.

Still fun but I bet I won't want season 4 when it comes along if they keep this up.

Poor Packaging?
As with any dvd, you could try to contact the distributor (my girlfriend owns this series, I don't, so I can't give you a specific name off the top of my head), which more than likely has a website address somewhere on the back of the case/box. Generally they'll ship you a replacement disc... Read more
