Default Weeds - Season Four DVD Review

The little boxes on the hillside are gone, and now it is time to get into the real drug business on the Mexican border in season four of the Showtime hit comedy, Weeds! Weeds: Season Four contains all 13 episodes from the 2008 season in a three disc set that is loaded with special features and hours of entertainment that you can enjoy without, err, toking it up!

In the fourth season, the series begins to truly deviate from where it began. In the first three seasons, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) was a marijuana dealing soccer mom while living in the cushy suburbs of Los Angeles in a small community called Agrestic (which later merged with the nearby Christian-based community of Majestic and was renamed as such). But near the end of the third season, much like the pot that Nancy was selling, the entire town of Majestic went up into smoke due to the California wildfires, and Nancy was forced to move her entire family to the town of Ren Mar, a town near the border of San Diego and Tijuana. They find refuge in the home the grandmother of her late husband (an invalid that is living on life support), but she also finds her father-in-law, Lenny (Albert Brooks), living there and ready to get his share of Nancy’s pot money via extortion techniques.

Fans of the series need not worry about the loss of other characters outside of the family, though. With nowhere else to go after the town goes up in flames, Doug Wilson (Kevin Nealon) makes his way to Ren Mar as well and decides to take up residence with the Botwin family. Dean (Andy Milder) and his daughter Isabelle (Allie Grant) take up residence hotel room in Ren Mar, paid for by FEMA. And of course, there is the woman that we all love to hate, Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins), making her way to Ren Mar to assist the FBI in breaking up Nancy’s drug operation, yet she somehow manages to become involved in the entire operation herself. In the meantime, Nancy finds a new love interest in a corrupt Mexican political leader, Silas (Hunter Parrish) is having an affair with the neighborhood soccer mom that happens to be twice his age, and even Shane (Alexander Gould) go into business with their mom, Andy is still mooching off of the Botwins, and there is a little surprise at the end of the season that could mean a larger cast in the future. And that is just a short summary of all of the twists and turns in the fourth season of Weeds!

I waited for Season 3 for an entire year. I had no problem getting all of the Season 4 DVDs on Blockbuster as soon as they came out.
How long a minute is, depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.

I just finished watching Season 4.

Sad to say but I did not like this season all that much. It wasn't as funny as the previous seasons and it really didn't hold my interest as well as before.

I think part of it had to do with the cast changes as the black family pot growers Heylia, Conrad, and Vaneeta were not in this season.
