WEEDS “Game-Played” Review

WEEDS  "Game-Played" Season 7 Episode  3 – Moving at an even slower crawl than last week’sepisode, this time the pacing was not jarring and indeed contributed to the show’s tone  odd tone. Unlike last week’s episode not a lot happened, but there were several interesting scenes, especially on the Nancy and Silas front. Last week I bemoaned the fact that Silas’ model storyline was dull and moved him outside of the triangle of characters the show’s emotion is built around: Shane, Andy and Nancy. This week I was (shockingly) proved completely wrong. Sure, Silas’ model exploits were pretty dull last week. This week it was clear that they were just a set up. First he had an interview with an artist who talks through another person, and then said artist puts him in a plastic bubble as her exhibit. It’s the sort of jarring randomness which makes  Weeds  so weirdly amusing. Nancy meanwhile had to face the consequences  of her drug bust  of last week, but unlike some other shows on Showtime’s roster ( Nurse Jackie ) her actions actually do meet consequences and these are pretty proportional reactions. Instead of being sent back to prison, Nancy must enrol in drug counselling, which turns out to be a very good way of hearing about the New York drug trade. Read More...

Weeds Review: Mom Who?!?

How far has Nancy Botwin fallen as a mother? Two of her kids now call her by her first name.

That's one non-existent reunion and one short-lived, business-based reunion for Nancy in less than 24 hours. Rough. Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/07/weeds-review-game-played/

‘Weeds’ Season 7, Episode 3, ‘Game-Played’: TV Recap

We’re ready to see what Nancy’s drug test says. But first, we get a title card shot of a happy dancing horse marionette. We’re betting that Shane’s previously mentioned career as a puppeteer in Copenhagen will come into play in this week’s episode. This is a pretty creative title card sequence. We’re going to guess that Nancy failed said drug test, because she’s now enrolled in her halfway house’s drug education class with Shelby, a saucy former smack addict. She reminds Nancy that if she tests positive again for drugs, she’ll head back to prison. With all these continued threats from halfway house employees, we have to wonder if Nancy even stands a chance to last the season on the outside. She even uses the drug class to find a new source for pot. Oh, Nancy. Read More... //blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2011/07/11/weeds-season-7-episode-3-game-played-tv-recap/?mod=WSJBlog
