Weeds' mellow buzz gives way to constant peril in its third year -- luckily the series remains a delight, thanks to a talented ensemble spearheaded by the thrillingly unpredictable Mary-Louise Parker.

Critic Reviews for Weeds Season 3

It remains a treat to hear the latest odd way Parker has chosen to deliver each of her lines... Elizabeth Perkins and, especially (and surprisingly), Kevin Nealon carry the comedy water even when the show around them has gone to pot.

Parker manages to act as though she's not acting. Every response seems natural, unforced, unpremeditated -- and, as a result, utterly beguiling.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Parker has taken a complex, vaguely dislikable character and turned her into a mesmerizing presence.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Romany Malco's performance as Conrad is a high point, and he has terrific chemistry with Parker, which would be sorely missed in later seasons.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

In its second season, Weeds became one of the best plotted shows on TV, routinely ending episodes on cliffhangers that TV's best dramas should envy. That continues this season, even though there's an unwelcome hint of season one's depressing ennui.

No matter what they throw at her, though, Mary-Louise Parker is a delight... [And] as Nancy's brother-in-law Andy, Justin Kirk is one of TV's true joys.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

I don't think this season is, as yet, as funny as Season Two was, and the show might have hit its peak last season. But it's still one of the best comedies on TV...

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The near-saving grace remains the quality of the actors... Beyond that, however, the show is ultimately a pretty thin porridge -- one whose plaudits have consistently exceeded its merits.

Credibility-stretching plotlines involving foot-fetish porn and Mary-Kate Olsen as a Jesus-loving pot dealer may be hilarious, but their inclusion makes the series' pleasures more and more guilty.

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

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about Weeds' reliance on going to absurd extremes. With all due respect to Justin Kirk, the zany roles here come off like easy punch lines.

Audience Reviews for Weeds: Season 3

    Season 3 went into freefall total yuk??acting sophomoric, writing shallow, very little in the way of subtle humor that made the first 2 seasons 4-5s! Did the writer(s)leave??? I really felt sorry for the actors having to live(and act!) Thru one painful scene after another...and then , there's the 'pro' critics who gave this banal adventure higher...or even good...ratings. Definitely know who was on...weeds.

    They sure knew how to write themselves into a corner. The grim humour of the previous season still holds, but the drama has lost some of its flair. And now that *SPOILERS* all major characters are in the drug business, and the entire town has been set ablaze, the show does not have anywhere to go. Judging from the ratings of the later seasons, that proved to be the case. Still, it was fun while it lasted.

    The story is still fascinating, and all kinds of drama is still going on, but Weeds is overdue for a reboot.

    Not as good as the first 2 but it's better than some of it's future seasons. Nancy started to get really weird and I stopped liking her because she does some crazy crap that does not make any since. I'm not sure if Nancy went retarded after season 2 but there is something seriously wrong with her.
