Critic Reviews for Weeds Season 2

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

    Better than the first season. This is when the series started to progress.
