Critic Consensus: Weeds remains engaging with bursts of heart and wit, but loses narrative momentum as Nancy Botwin's motivations become increasingly obtuse.

There's a sense of drift here that may be hard to reverse.
The further Nancy Botwin sinks and propels herself into a dead-end life of isolated danger and highly organized crime, the more aware I become that I really dislike her; the more I need to see her fail to justify watching.
Ultimately, I respect the show for its boldness, and have enjoyed following the characters I've come to love down the rabbit hole.
What the hell happened to "Weeds"? It is an absolute shit show. It's terrible now. It jumped the helicopter hovering over the shark two seasons ago, and now it's in a free fall.
By the third episode, though, Weeds seems to be finding its footing.
