    Weeds

    So I'm thinking about investing my time in the Showtime show Weeds. For those of you who watch this, is it any good? I'd just like to see your thoughts. Thanks!

    Great show! We don't have Showtime but we rent the DVDs when they come out each year.

    Re: Weeds

    First 2-3 seasons were great. We watched streaming on netflix. About the 4th season it just started getting ridiculous though.

    Re: Weeds

    Agree with the last couple of posters. Season 1 was the best and the second and third were decent. It's been getting worse. I watched the first episode of this season to find out what happened with the cliff hanger to end last season and haven't watched since. At the beginning the humor was really good, now it's just not that entertaining.

    Re: Weeds

    Weeds just finished the season, but Californication starts in one month and is highly recomended. Also Dexter is great. Showtime is in a very close to HBO as far as top premium network.

    Re: Weeds

    worth the watch, especially if you like off the wall stuff. this was the best season in my opinion, after the first, and definitely has the biggest cliff hanger.

    I do miss some of the characters from the earlier seasons, though. This season was almost all about the family.

    the Big C is surprisingly fun too. At first my wife got me to watch it and I thought it was going to be a chick flick, while it has some of those tendencies, it has a lot of good humor balanced with melancholy.

    Re: Weeds

    Like the others have said, the first three seasons are the best, then it gets a little out there. Still very entertaining show.

    Re: Weeds

    I watched one episode and really liked it but I didn't want to get hooked on another TV show (Dexter, It's Always Sunny, The League, Breaking Bad, Archer, The Office, Community). That's too many already.

    It's good. Season 1 was the best. Each season after that wasn't quite as good.
