Weeds season 3 did not seem to be as good as the previous years. However, I plan to continue with this series.

Weeds Continues to Grow

"I'm disappointed to see many negative reviews of the 3rd Season. I got mine from Amazon last week and have already watched the whole season and it was great! I was nervous going in because I had heard from various people that season three wasn't as good, but after I got watching I was not at all sure what the fuss was about, the show is pushing itself and growing in new directions like it needs to if it's going to survive. The show challenges you to think about "drugs," what's right and wrong, and examines the inter-workings of suburbia with such cleverness that I am always pleasantly surprised.
Nancy Botwin is the perfect character, you love her, but sometimes want to slap her. Parker is an amazing actress and makes this show work from beginning to end. I also love her youngest Shane, he's excellent this season and glad to see him getting more and more airtime. This show is both funny and heartbreaking and blows most shows on TV right now out of the water.
I'm really excited to see how season 4 plays out. I think it's a great sign that they are breaking out of the "little boxes."
Don't listen to the negative reviews. If you liked season 1 and 2 you will love season 3!"
Weeds season 3

"Still entertaining, although not as believable. Everything seems really over-the-top. Weeds is still my favorite show though! *a note on the packaging. The discs weren't clicked in and they were rubbing around during shipping. I thought they were used at first since there were scratches on the them right out of the package."
My favorite season of weeds so far

"I thought this season was just a perfect mix of drama and comedy. The whole Nancy turning gangsta thing was hilarious, and the show somehow makes the criminals Nancy hangs out with funny and relatable. Celia is an especially amazing character, because she can be extremely mean and shallow (and sometimes even cruel) but still maintains a strange lovability that makes it easy to sympathize for her.
Great season of a great show, and the season finale opens up many new possibilities for season 4."
Shining Star in a Dark Night of Boring TV

"I see a lot of people did not care for season 3 of Weeds. While I did get the sense that, Nancy will never win and got frustrated at her life/circumstances (won't give anything away)...I still really enjoyed this season and am ready to watch Season 4!
I thought this season showed us a new side of many characters, Celia, Silas, Shane, Andy and Dean. I liked how the cliff hanger from season 2 was dealt with. And in each half hour there was enough drama that at the end of each show you were ready to watch the next one to see what was going to happen.
My only complaint with Weeds is that the plot seems to be repeating with regards to Nancy and nearly getting caught selling, then her being in debt to someone etc. I've finished season 4, and that's what has made me a little dismayed at the fact that it does seem to be the same formula over & over...but I'm waiting till Season 5 to make up my mind on that.
Again, I think Showtime has hit paydirt with an original, fun show. The half hour format is what does it for me, something quick to pop in and sit back and relax to. Even more, the cast and crew makes this show a shining star in a dark night of boring TV."

"If you liked the first two seasons for their creative story lines, originality, and the pushing-of-the-envelope characterization then you would be disappointed with season three. The story lines don't go anywhere... it's as though the writers stopped caring. And I don't particularly care for the various characters as I had in the previous two seasons. Don't buy, borrow season three and hope that the fourth is an improvement. I am not sure I want to continue with the fourth season, myself. "
