New York, New High! After serving 3 years in the joint, the onetime suburban soccer mom is making a fresh start in New York City and going back to doing what she does best -- selling pot. But when some old friends return, they could send everything up in flames.
When Showtime first launched Weeds, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) was a Southern California widow who sold marijuana to make ends meet. At the start of season seven, she emerges from prison after a three-year bid for a crime she didn't commit in order to save her son, Shane (Alexander Gould), who's been living in Copenhagen with Andy (Justin Kirk), Silas (Hunter Parrish, now with dark hair), and Doug (Kevin Nealon). Granted early release for good behavior, Nancy ends up in New York, where she reconnects with the guys. Instead of going straight, she returns to dealing (Pablo Schreiber plays her supplier), while trying to regain custody of Stevie, who's been living with her sister, Jill (Jennifer Jason Leigh). She also has to find legit work if she wants to leave the halfway house. To get her son back, Nancy hires an eccentric attorney (Martin Short, underused), while Shane studies criminal justice, Andy opens up a bike shop, and Silas puts his modeling aspirations aside to help out his mother--and then to compete with her. As a front, Nancy finds an office job through Doug, who secures a gig as an accountant, a fairly improbable development, but then Weeds has never aimed for documentary-style realism. Other subplots don't quite work, like Doug's steroid addiction and Andy's fling with a polyamorous artist, but if the first few episodes seem scattered, things come together once Shane buddies up to a corrupt cop, Silas spends the night with a rival (Michelle Trachtenberg), and Nancy spies on Doug's boss (Aidan Quinn). Soon, these worlds collide in a most entertaining fashion, leading to a patented Weeds cliffhanger. Extra features include a gag reel, deleted scenes, Shane and Andy-centric featurettes, and six chatty commentaries with sleepy-voiced creator Jenji Kohan and members of the cast and crew. --Kathleen C.

13. Do Her/Don't Do Her
In a ho-hum finale, everything is resolved and then paved off with a Season 3 like cliffhanger. The series may and hopefully will return so we can get a better resulotion for the Botwin clan.
This season had it's ups and downs. It was not as over the top as Season 5, but like season 6 seemed to lack a general direction and central plot. Each episode was writte well, things just didn't play out like they used to, it was somewhat sloppy. Still, overall it was an enjoyable season. B+

This season sees the Botwin clan relocated to New York City after Nancy is released from a 3 year prison stint. It's safe to say that the recurring theme of "no one ever changes, ever" is present and thriving, since Nancy picks right back off where she left off. At this point in the show, her actions are not necessarily surprising, but still insanely compelling. We have been with Nancy for 7 years now, so we know her well, just like her family we easily accept her descent back into crime. There are some differences of course, with Nancy having the smarts to reestablish her own team and openly fight for the things she believes in (instead of keeping them to herself). At least she seems to be learning, at least a little, from her past mistakes. The goddess Mary-Louise Parker still never hits a false note here. Mary-Louise always finds the comedy in Nancy's decisions and there is plenty of first rate wit coming from the actress in this season. After all, she is the reason we keep coming back to Weeds, and let me tell you, her performance this season does not disappoint! The season is best when Nancy is pitted against her nasty sister Jill (recurring guest star Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is perfection here, especially in the finale).
Andy (Justin Kirk) gets the least amount to do this season, unfortunately. His story is reduced to a fling with an artist in an open marriage (Lindsay Sloane) and the occasional comic relief. Silas (a very reliable Hunter Parrish) gets the most to do, besides Nancy, this season. He sets up his own team of dealers and eventually competes against Nancy. This is the most dramatic storyline of the latter part of the season and plays out naturally and emotionally. Parker and Parrish have some fantastic scenes together. Shane (Alexander Gould) enrolls in college and gets an, ironic, internship with the NYPD for Det. Mitch Ouellette (Michael Harney). This aspect of the season works because it's ambiguous, which adds an air of mystery. Even after the finale were never sure what is going to come of this, but it's certainly leading to something big. Doug (Kevin Nealon) has relevance once again, after an aimless storyline in season 6. He gets a job on Wall Street with some old buddies and it intertwines nicely with Nancy's wheelings and dealings.
With a fresh setting and a brisk pace, season 7 of Weeds brings the show back to it's roots. We get plenty of nasty humor, plenty of danger and plenty of guest stars (Martin Short, Olga Sosnovska, Pablo Schreiber, Aidan Quinn, Michelle Trachtenberg) and returning favorites (Tonye Patano, Andy Milder). If you have loved Weeds so far, season 7 will not disappoint, especially with yet another stellar Jenji Kohan-certified cliffhanger, this is a very memorable season. It may be uneven, the series has a few storytelling kinks to work out in the beginning half of the season by trying to reconnect all the Botwins, but in the end it works and opens plenty of new storytelling avenues.
For Weeds fans, season 7 comes highly recommended.
