If this episode is any indication, the third season of Weeds looks to be its finest yet, striking a balance between the melancholy whimsy of the first season and the darker tones of the second. In thirty minutes, it’s set the stage for a multitude of subplots, any of which could veer off in an infinite variety of directions. One thing is certain, though. Wherever you think the plot may be headed, you’re wrong. And that is precisely why you’ll come back for another hit.
Weeds season premiere airs tonight on Showtime, 10PM, EST, and will be available on Showtime On Demand any time. You can also see the debut online with a Showtime VIP Insider pass.
