"Convenience" is a word we fear in television shows -- a word that indicates an avoidance of effort for the sake of tidying up a narrative. This week 'Weeds' embraced convenience by evaporating Jill and sending Andy off on his next relationship adventure. "Abrupt" is also a word that comes to mind.
"How far is it from beginning to end," Stevie asks Nancy near the end of this week's 'Weeds' as she stares existentially at a map of New England, where her job is sending her for two weeks out of every month. And even though Nancy left her drug business behind, she's still traveling down the same path -- it's up to her where it ends.
There are still quite a a few questions to be answered when Showtime's long-running pot comedy 'Weeds' returns for an eighth, and potentially final season on July 8, and details are being kept tight, but a fresh offering from the garden might be just what we need to get back in the high spirits.
