After the shocking events in the 5th Season's finale, Nancy and the gang (minus Celia, which is a blessing since the show didn't need her anymore), are off on the road. Sending the characters on the run was a risky but inspired move because it exhausts them dramatically, puts them in contact with some wacky people and locations (adding much of the humor missing from Season 5), adds a real sense of urgency and danger and keeps the pace brisk and engaging.
What works best about sending Nancy and Co on the lam is that it also lets the show backtrack it's history, letting the characters come to terms with what they have done over the years. It's in that self reflective nature that the show brings in a wholly unexpected emotional level. The finale here is not necessarily shocking in terms of plot, but shocking for what Nancy does emotionally, when you see it, you will never think she had it in her. Season Six of Weeds is decidedly different in almost every aspect, but it also brings all of the shows past seasons into a greater light.
Since we finally get to really see what is going on under the surface with Nancy, Andy, Silas, Shane and yes, even Doug, we begin to understand their past (before the show started), their actions during the series and then how they react during Season Six. With the writing in such top form, the acting is even better.Read more ›
Weeds first started out simply, pot-dealing soccer mom Nancy Botwin tries to make ends meet by introducing the herb in her suburb. However, as Nancy finds her way crawling up the drug-world grapevine, danger and comedy are ensured.
This season was one of the 'lesser' seasons, it did lack focus and seemed like a real road trip at times. The season begins to pick up once Nancy returns to her hometown, ready to flee the country to escape the Mexican Mafia, FBI and her husband who wants her head on a pike, Esteban (Demain Bichir), and his betrayed henchman, Guillermo (Guillermo Diaz).
From Seattle to Colorado and Michigan, we follow the Botwin's on an escape, living off the lam since Shane (Alexander Gould) bludgeoned Mexican VIP and queenpin, Pilar Zuazo (Kate Del Castillo) after she makes her intentions clear in season five's shocking finale.
I like to grade the series by episode for a full analysis of the season.
Episode 1: Thwack!
Fleeing Ren Mar during the aftermath proves to be difficult for Nancy & co. Andy cuts it off with Audra (special guest star Alanis Morissette) and Nancy and her family begin their life on the run. (B+)
Episode 2: Felling and Swamping
The Botwin's assume new identities and head north to hide from Esteban, now on hot pursuit of them. (B+)
Episode 3: A Yippity Sippity
Starting over in Seattle proves hard for the Botwin's as they try to manage their double lives. Silas (Hunter Parish), Nancy (Mary Louise Parker) and Andy (Justin Kirk) get jobs at a Space Needle hotel. Oh, and Shane steals a baby stroller for Stevie/Ahvi!Read more ›
So, here we are, season six. Nancy and the family are on the lam again, and they stay on the lam through out the whole season, while Esteban and his crew are on their tail through out practically the whole thing.Read more ›
