Last night we watched the first episode of Season 7 of “Weeds”. I liked it.
The seventh season begins three years after the sixth ended. The only person who seems to have aged at all is Shane, who is sporting some very silly looking sideburns. Everyone else has miraculously remained the same age.
Nancy has been in prison, having a lesbian affair with her cellmate. The “guys” have all been in Denmark, giving tours to travellers, modelling (Silas of course), and acting as puppeteers. Nancy’s baby has been with her crazy sister. Nancy’s insane drug lord husband has also been in prison.
I thought it was good… much better than last season in fact. I thought Season 6 got pretty dumb, and I was happy to see that they rethought the show and came up with a whole new story line that may actually work.
After all, I didn’t want “Weeds” to go the way of “U.S. of Tara”.
