In the Weeds

Ms. Parker, aka Nancy Botwin, searches for the storyline.
As we enter season seven of Weeds, I am of the thought that perhaps, just perhaps, this delightful Showtime series has already reached its zenith and is now wondering what the hell direction to take.

I am only two shows into the season and may well change my mind, but think of the Sopranos. There were some seasons that were distinct bummers as to action (somebody gotta get whacked, right?) and certainly story. The characters, without a doubt fully formed and fully known, seemed to be running in circles.

No sooner is Nancy Botwin out of prison and she is involved in criminal activity.

Really? She didn't learn anything?

Color me skeptical.
