When Showtime first launched Weeds, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) was a Southern California widow who sold marijuana to make ends meet. At the start of season seven, she emerges from prison after a three-year bid for a crime she didn't commit in order to save her son, Shane (Alexander Gould), who's been living in Copenhagen with Andy (Justin Kirk), Silas (Hunter Parrish, now with dark hair), and Doug (Kevin Nealon). Granted early release for good behavior, Nancy ends up in New York, where she reconnects with the guys. Instead of going straight, she returns to dealing (Pablo Schreiber plays her supplier), while trying to regain custody of Stevie, who's been living with her sister, Jill (Jennifer Jason Leigh). She also has to find legit work if she wants to leave the halfway house. To get her son back, Nancy hires an eccentric attorney (Martin Short, underused), while Shane studies criminal justice, Andy opens up a bike shop, and Silas puts his modeling aspirations aside to help out his mother--and then to compete with her. As a front, Nancy finds an office job through Doug, who secures a gig as an accountant, a fairly improbable development, but then Weeds has never aimed for documentary-style realism. Other subplots don't quite work, like Doug's steroid addiction and Andy's fling with a polyamorous artist, but if the first few episodes seem scattered, things come together once Shane buddies up to a corrupt cop, Silas spends the night with a rival (Michelle Trachtenberg), and Nancy spies on Doug's boss (Aidan Quinn). Soon, these worlds collide in a most entertaining fashion, leading to a patented Weeds cliffhanger. Extra features include a gag reel, deleted scenes, Shane and Andy-centric featurettes, and six chatty commentaries with sleepy-voiced creator Jenji Kohan and members of the cast and crew. --Kathleen C.

I've stuck with "Weeds" through good and bad and defended it even when my opinion was contrary (Season 6 was one of my faves) to others; but this is definitely the bottom of the barrel for the once-mighty Showtime series. It's a bad sign when an episode ends and I simply turn off the DVD and don't really care what happens next. Previous seasons had me compulsively watching 3-4 episodes in a row because the plots were so addictive and interesting. Not here, folks. Season 7 offers no excitement, even though we have a flash-forward 3 years and Nancy is now living in a halfway house in New York after her prison stint.
The writers try and give us some bizarre visuals to spice up the proceedings (A group of mimes at a funeral; Silus walking around in a giant transparent beach ball in his underwear at some avante-garde gathering) but everything falls flat.
The finale doesn't get interesting until the last few minutes and I figure there's two ways they can go for Season 8. I don't know if Mary Louise Parker is returning or not; if she is--they will probably make Season 8 a prequel to the final scene of S7.
Diehards like me will want to own this for their collection; everyone else should just rent it. A once-great show is sadly past its prime. Three Stars.
