Tv Season Info

The dark comedy-drama's seventh season opens three years after pot-dealing Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) has done a stint in federal prison and has been paroled to a halfway house in New York City. However, Nancy fully looks for an opportunity to fire up her canni-business and reunite with the men in her life. Meanwhile, Silas attempts to land a job as a model; Doug is offered a dream job on Wall Street; Shane decides to give it the old college try and enrolls in classes; and Nancy squares off against her sister Jill (Jennifer Jason Leigh) in a custody battle. Later, Andy opens a bike shop while Silas sells pot out of the back room; Silas lands a love interest (Michelle Trachtenberg); and a police detective offers Shane an internship.

It feels fresh and amusing.

Nancy Botwin has moved to New York, and that may give her Showtime series Weeds some of the fresh energy the move was designed to provide.

The series has been an enormous success, but if it was wobbling off the tracks last year, it crashed and exploded off of them this season. Every episode felt like a complete mess. There was no continuity, no pacing.

It starts off strong and has a lot of promise, as the family has moved on and away; soon enough, though, they are all living together in New York and behaving unrealistically and negotiating unfunny storylines.

Weeds has turned into a bit of a pay cable soap opera: the turns are compelling, and we're never bored, but it's more about melodramatic entertainment than anything resembling a real emotional attachment.

Weeds has never been a particularly realistic show, but some of the things that happen over the course of the season are so implausible that it doesn't even feel like the writers are trying anymore.

Parker alone is enough to make a series worth watching.

I've been really enjoying how drastically it overhauls itself so frequently and dramatically, to the point where the series feels like it keeps morphing into its own spinoff every year or two.

Despite the odds stacked against it, Weeds is in the midst of a bit of a creative rebirth.

Tonight's episode feels like a reset, a fresh start for the characters but if they just lapse back into their old ways, I'm not sure what the point of another season of this show will be.

Audience Reviews for Weeds: Season 7

  • Jan 19, 2014
    The characters are becoming selfish, mean, cruel people with no redemption.

    Nancy being the selfish bimbo she is. For one...she screws strangers she barely knows and cheats on her cell mate with her cell mate's brother...what a skank. And you'd think after 3 years in prison she'd stop selling weed. I think the writers are trying to keep the show on for as long a run as possible but still want it to be about her and pot dealing. Get on a new subject and stop screwing up the character. They have made Nancy dull and stupid because of this.
