DVD Talk review of 'Weeds - Season 1' (Blu-ray)

I read Daniel Hirshleifer's DVD review of Weeds - Season 1 at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=28602 and... Mr. Hirshleifer lost me at "Flight of the Conchords looks atrocious". I can't take any review regarding a TV show seriously that would start off with that. Flight of the Conchords is one of the most unique, subversive, creative shows on TV right now.

To be fair, Daniel didn't say that it was atrocious -- just that the promos and all he'd seen were fairly poor. The marketing didn't really hook me in either, although I've heard a number of good things about it since.

Hey dutch, thanks for writing in.

I had forgotten that I put a comment about Conchords in my Weeds review, but Adam is correct that my response was due to the marketing, which was not representative of the quality of the show. I have since seen and loved the series. Hope that makes you feel better.
