Critic Reviews for Weeds Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (10)

Parker turns in a performance bubbling over with vitality and believability, even when the script itself strains credulity or when individual lines of dialogue slip too much into sitcom punch lines and rhythms.

What a masterful and hilariously politically incorrect potboiler of a story it is... Happily, Weeds hasn't dropped a petal or missed even a beat this season, either.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Despite being billed as a comedy, the perceptively written show is actually a credible look at lives stuck in neutral and people almost trapped by their addiction to a certain level of upper-middle class comfort.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Season two takes us into darker territory while still managing to be funny, shocking and occasionally inspiring.

Weeds feels free to entangle Nancy with a new man: a DEA agent we knew she'd bed because actor Martin Donovan's deadpan actually rivals Parker's own.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Season 1 of Showtime's addictive comedy Weeds hooked us with a novel premise... With season 2, however, we became seriously dependent, as the series descended into intriguingly murky territory.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Weeds still isn't quite funny or startling enough to become a compulsion but delivers enough tantalizing hits to merit the TiVo "season pass" treatment.

Top Critic

This is the most memorable and most successful season of Weeds.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The show needs an actress as talented as Parker to ground it all and bring together the seemingly random elements, and she rises to the occasion in a big way.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The second season is a much better trip, light-fingered but more assured at teasing out the mundane absurdities of life... But the best thing from Season 1 remains the same: Mary-Louise Parker.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Not funny enough to prompt a hearty guffaw, but now and then worthy of an appreciative chuckle, Weeds is still fun, still thought-provoking, still smarter and more grown-up than most network comedy series.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Showtime is lucky to have plucked a show like Weeds, and smart to put muscle behind making it flourish.

Audience Reviews for Weeds: Season 2

  • Jun 21, 2019
    Weeds is Back and better than ever. This time with a stunning storyline with twists and turns and shocks you would have to see to believe.
  • Feb 10, 2017
    Relatively mild-mannered in its first season, the second season of Weeds has taken a turn for a less BS depiction of drug dealing, foul relationships, and the hurdles of single parenthood, all the while maintaining a sense of humour. Gosh, some of these jokes are dark. One of the best in the entire season is a clumsy case of child molestation. It should be stressed that Weeds is a lighthearted drama, no longer simply a comedy of marijuana trafficking in the suburbs. The show has found its footing, and can find room to laugh at itself while depicting the slowly destructive lives of our medium-sized cast of characters.

    Fantastic season! :D
  • Jan 19, 2014
    The soap-opera feel does nothing to hurt Weeds. The drama and characters get a tune-up in season two, resulting in a better season than the first.
  • Jan 02, 2014
    Better than the first season. This is when the series started to progress.
