5.0 out of 5 stars Gypsies, Tramps and Weeds
**NOTE - This review contains minor spoilers **

After three seasons in Agrestic, and two seasons spent in Mexico, Nancy Botwin and her brood pull up roots once again as Season 6 becomes one big road trip for the family, now on the lam because of Shane's murderous tendencies, which became apparent in the Season 5 finale.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as past seasons
Nancy really takes a turn for the worse in this season. Even though she has always been less than a stellar mom, in season 6, she really shows us a level of depravity not previously seen. Shane is nuts. No other way to say it, and it was brilliantly played by Alexander Gould. He is so wonderful in this character. Silas just breaks your heart. He wants to better his...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as past seasons, April 2 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
Nancy really takes a turn for the worse in this season. Even though she has always been less than a stellar mom, in season 6, she really shows us a level of depravity not previously seen. Shane is nuts. No other way to say it, and it was brilliantly played by Alexander Gould. He is so wonderful in this character. Silas just breaks your heart. He wants to better his life, but is stuck in Nancy's soul-sucking void. Andy is great yet again, but almost borders on the ridiculous. Celia, Dean, and Isabelle were sorely missed this season. It really isn't the same without them. I'm hoping that Season 7 will bring everyone back together and end it all with a bang - with the best season ever. Here's hoping.

This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
**NOTE - This review contains minor spoilers **

After three seasons in Agrestic, and two seasons spent in Mexico, Nancy Botwin and her brood pull up roots once again as Season 6 becomes one big road trip for the family, now on the lam because of Shane's murderous tendencies, which became apparent in the Season 5 finale.

When their attempt to cross the border to Canada is foiled, the gang first settles in Seattle, shacking up in a cheap motel after having gained employment at a nearby hotel by crossing a picket line and replacing striking hospitality workers. Nancy isn't scrubbing toilets for long until she finds a way to start dealing to the hotel guests in search of weed. Linda Hamilton makes an amusing appearance as a no-nonsense lesbian dealer, and nails the delivery of every line she has.

Andy, Doug and Silus practice trailer-park evangelism when the gang has a stop-over in Montana. Dale Dickey makes a small but terrific appearance as does Mark-Paul Gosselaar (he has a bare-buns scene having hate-sex with Nancy).

Celia disappears this season, and as much as I love Elizabeth Perkins, the plots and guest characters make up for her absence--I didn't miss her near as much as I thought I would.

The cliffhanger season-finale is something this series has almost always done to perfection (save for the burning of Agrestic in Season 3--it just wasn't gripping or suspenseful enough for me) and Season 6 does not disappoint.

Like the cover art says "Weeds is still smokin'" and I whole-heartedly agree. Everything that made me fall in love with this series is still here: the jet-black humour, addictive and quirky storylines, and solid performances from the entire cast. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars what ????????, Oct. 24 2011
This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
Weeds meet the Trailer Park boys ? Come on...it's getting really out of focus and going nowhere ... fast.... still has ''some'' funny bits but it's lost the creativity and next door feeling of the 2 first seasons. Seems like the writters smoke too much and sees a logical suite of ideas in chaos....hope season 7 will be more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weeds is better than ever!, April 10 2011
By

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
This season was chock full of new turns (and some old turns): Innocent Nancy getting into trouble again without understand why, Shane coming of age and discovering his true calling (I won't ruin it for you), Silas becoming the good one, and Andy just being, well, Andy. The real prize here is the outstanding acting and portrayal of each character. Alexander Gould (Shane) has proven to be quite an actor in this season, and Andy just keeps me in stitches with his pathetic and impulsive love for Nancy. The writing is twisted and raw, and the plot just keeps squeezing the Botwins (or Newmans if you prefer) tighter and tighter. This cast is fantastic, with some great newcomers and famous visitors in the mix. Can't wait to see the next season!

It's still funny an intelligent, but the story isn't great. Except for the last 2 episodes, the story doen't evolve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weeds Season SIx, April 21 2011
If you like the previous seasons you will like Season Six. Andy is hilarious like usual and Shane is pretty funny too. Blu-ray picture is great and you can glide through the menu really quick. Good Blu-ray!

Missing Episode
We enjoyed the 6th season very much. The 5th episode was missing for some strange reason which spoiled the season a little. Otherwise it was great entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars good acting. Story becoming unlikely logical for many people ..., Sept. 28 2014

Less comical than previous épisodes. However, good acting. Story becoming unlikely logical for many people to get away from murder. One more disk to view.

3.0 out of 5 stars Least preferred season, June 24 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Weeds: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
This season is really changed up and not for the better. If you skipped any season this should be the one. Still amusing but lost some of its oomf
