Weeds: The Brick Dance
1. You can't make $12,500 off a brick.
2. The cock wants what it wants.
3. Fish have internal testicles.
Weeds is like the anti-Entourage. Instead of tying everything up in a neat, happy little bow by the end of the episode (Kanye Ex Machina, anyone?), everything goes to pot. (Oh yeah, I'm punny.) Seriously, could things get any worse for the Botwins?
Nancy's got the DEA breathing down her neck and a serious debt to pay to an ugly gangster. Andy's going to be shipped off to Iraq sans toes and all. Poor Shane's entire world is being disrupted, and Silas is headed community service way. At least, he wasn't tossed in jail.
I sure hope Heylia really is "taking care of U-Turn." I'm not sure how long I can take Nancy brick dancing all over LA. That was just weird, but not as weird as Andy's tour of duty. Seriously, I know the Army's hard-up for recruits these days, but gay, toe-less, unwilling Andy? Where the heck is this storyline going? (Actually, I know where it's going for at least one more episode, and "WTF" may be the most appropriate euphemism.)
I'm glad the show didn't forget poor Peter. Where is his dead body hanging out anyway? Some Armenian's garage? How would his partner not know where he was? And, remember the part where he has a son?
In other parts of Agrestic, Isabelle and Dean finally cut Celia out of their lives, but not for long, I hope. Celia and Isabelle together are terrifically funny. I always get the feeling that writer Jenji Kohan is exorcizing some childhood demons in those scenes.
And, let's talk guest stars for a moment. Carrie Fisher was awesome. They could trump up any old excuse to bring her back, and that'd be cool with me. I feel like there's a great regular TV role to be written for Carrie Fisher. I'd love to see it be on Weeds. And, next week. Matthew Modine is in effect - all perma-smile and hair helmet. I can't wait, and hey, even the Mary Kate promos don't look so bad.
Even if Weeds has gone a bit off the rails in terms of brick dancing and army service, it's still one of the most enjoyable shows on television.
