Weeds: Season 6 (2010)

Summing It Up:
The sixth season of Weeds finds the Botwin family on the run from the police and FBI, as well as the Mexican politicians and thugs that they double crossed in their most recent misadventures. Desperate to escape to a "normal" life, they assume fake identities and attempt to leave the country.

Quick Thoughts: 
I didn't start watching Weeds until after Season 6 had begun airing on television. However, I caught up in just a couple of weeks, via Netflix Instant, because the show sucked me in. By the time that I got to the end of Season 5, I was definitely a fan, and I couldn't wait to watch Season 6.

With that said, I dug into Season 6 almost immediately. However, I only made it a few episodes in initially, mostly because I found that the season seemed to be losing steam quickly. After about five episodes, I kind of lost interest, and I moved on to some other things.

Well, I eventually decided that I should give the remainder of the season a shot, and I am honestly glad that I did because things did pick up very quickly once I started watching again. The family's misadventures in drug dealing, murder, and all sorts of other illegal things amused me once again, and the show gained some much needed direction during the last half of the season.

The result of this is that, if you found yourself unimpressed by the beginning of this season and stopped watching, you should dig it back up and give it a shot. I did, and I feel that it was very much worth it. For those who have yet to even check the show out, I think you should definitely do so.


4 out of 5
