4.0 out of 5 stars That Suburbs Show, May 9, 2014
This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Collection (Blu-ray + UltraViolet Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
That Nancy. I got into this show purely because I'm in love with Mary-Louise Parker (and okay, of course, the title subject), and after a fair-to-middling 1st season (other than Breaking Bad, is there any show that doesn't have a fair-to-middling 1st season?) I found myself steadily surprised at just how funny and creative it was, and even found myself moved--- no, seriously, moved--- by the last scene of the last episode. For a show that made fun of drug culture (and consequences), sexual orientations, and social/racial stereotypes, it's true what you may have heard: Weeds' biggest risk was that Parker's hot mess (truly) of a mom is not always totally likable (at times she threatens to become a sexy Walter White, and indeed the makers of Bad briefly worried about similarities). It's not that she's a bad person; it's that her pleasure- and danger-loving weak will inevitably makes bad stuff happen, even and especially to the people she loves. But unlike BB, Weeds is a broad comedy about redemption, and it pulls off its goals without ever quite detouring to heartwarming. Plus, Kevin Nealon as the dumbest stoner since Chong makes it more than worth the time. Happy Mother's Day, everybody
