Weeds - A Beam of Sunshine

Ouch, those health care bills looked painful. Nancy’s gonna have to deal a lot of weed. This show is obviously pumping how messed-up health care is in the U.S. We are sick of her being a crazy invalid. The doctors need to fix her quick. Nancy’s having a crisis of conscience?!! What?!! Like that’s gonna last…right? We don’t know. She seems sincere about this second chance stuff. Since we’ve lost all sympathy for her (and everyone else on this show) as a person, we don’t care. You have to admire Nancy for being able to confront the clown guy who threatened her, even when she can hardly walk and talking puts her out of breath.

Does Silas have more Mommy issues this season, or is he just having fun having someone else be his bitch for a change? The best character, Andy, is sidelined with that stupid sister we hate. Good on you, Shane, for finding Peter. Good on you. In other news, Doug is still on this show. And he’s still being lecherous. At this point, we are only watching Weeds because it’s only half an hour and we want to see how it all ends. We don’t want to read about it. After all these years, we want to actually see it. Maybe. Unless every episode of season eight is this dull.

Episode grade: C-

Hunger Games fans: Hunter Parrish as Finnick O'Dair? Yea or Nay?


  1. Nay about Hunter for Finnick...he's pretty short, almost Josh Hutcherson short which is fine for Peeta but not so much for Finnick. Also his voice sounds a little...feminine. I don't know. He'd be an okay choice but not really the right one, in my opinion.

    1. Our concern was that he was too pasty and he's lost a little of the good meat in his face since last year. But good point with the voice.

      The thing is, no one is going to be the right one for Finnick, because there are so many types of guys that different girls are attracted to. If he turns out to not be someone's type, they are going to be ticked. I like manlier-looking guys, and they are almost surely going to pick some pretty boy Garrett Hedlund/Orlando Bloom-looking type.

    2. The problem is that the character of Finnick is so popular that people all have an idea of who Finnick should be. 2% of people will be happy and 98% will not be. I just really hope that they cast an actor who can carry the kind of weight that Finnick needs to. It's such a powerful character...I want them to cast someone who not only looks the part but can act the part too.

    3. YES. Yes yes yes. The trouble with book fans is that they get too hung up on looks. "But Katniss has brown hair. WAHHHHH." What really matters is if the actor can capture the essence of the character and make it his/her own. After we saw Alan Rickman play Snape in Harry Potter, no one said, "He's too old" or "he doesn't have a goatee." He was just Snape.
