This season Nancy is released from prison and must find a way to put her family, and her life, back together again. Fighting her sister for custody of her son from a halfway house, she tries to rebuild her drug business empire at the same time as Shane gets cozy with the cops.
Mary-Louise Parker (Nancy), Hunter Parrish (Silas), Alexander Gould (Shane), Kevin Nealon (Doug), Justin Kirk (Andy), Andy Milder (Dean), Tonye Patano (Heylia), Michelle Trachtenberg (Emma), Michael Harney (Det. Ouellette).
Season 7 of Weeds picks up where the last season left off with Nancy being released from prison. As is normal with her life, things immediately begin to get complicated. Her family is a mess, she can't seem to regain custody of her son, the drug business has become much more competitive, and her family seems to be in the middle of more chaos than usual. Nancy begins to put the pieces back together, though this season looks a lot more like dumb luck than anything else.
Acting remains nicely done this season from the main cast; Parker, Parrish, Gould, Nealon, Kirk. Trachtenberg was a nice addition and helped round out Parrish's character a bit. Harney was also enjoyable, bringing an interesting mix of humanity and antagonism to the series.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were solid with good detail and about what would be expected from a popular, well funded series. Physical effects were sparse but nicely done when used. Dialogue was excellent, delivering comedy, drama, and suspense while moving the story along at a good pace. Sound and soundtrack were good.
Overall Weeds remains a lot of fun and fans of the series will no doubt enjoy Season 7 quite a bit. Those new to the series may not pick up on the humor and backstory right away but will probably come back looking to watch the entire series if they enjoy Season 7.
With plenty of crude humor, foul language, explicit sexuality, nudity, drug use, and violence save this for the oldest teens and above.
Weeds is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 5 out of 5
