Well, weeds has gone downhill for me, in a way that it can never live upto the standard they set in earlier seasons. ever again.
The show has lost its humor and now relies on shock tactics to keep us engaged. It's not why I tuned into Weeds the first time and I stopped watching in the middle of the season.
The way they handled the rape scene was deeply mysoginistic and I fail to see how a woman could write and direct something so sexist, so wrong, and then just brush it under the rug calling it "rough sex"
Nancy goes back to the drug lord and Andy is STILL hanging onto her like white on rice and doing whatever she tells him. The baby doesn't have a dad on the birth certificate so of course, she pulls him in again. After, she left him for a rapist. The circ. scene was just icing on the cake. Her breastfeeding Andy and then getting all defensive when the baby is fed formula? irrelevant and it doesn't redeem her at all.
Nancy's impulsive personality and her danger addiction is just getting to be too much for me. It was hard to watch her make harmful choices for her family and herself. It's even harder to see her portray a shell of a woman who is unlikeable and is controlled by her love of danger.
I don't watch it any longer but I just wanted to share my opinion.
I'm sad that one of my favorite shows has deteriorated once again, just like the L word! Showtime, what's goin' on? Ugh!
