Doug was great.

So I guess they are moving to a new city.

Agrestic.. shit, Majestic police!

Wow, what a disappointing finale season. It started off decent with U-Turn and then petered into a train-wreck of a mess after they killed him off. They could have literally ran the final three episodes after U-Turn's death and nothing would have changed, everything in between was episodic sitcom filler (without the comedy). I was at least hoping they would deliver a strong finale to keep you mildly interested in next year but they pooched that too. Hopefully they can learn to focus on their characters and stories next year instead of trying to squeeze infantile Bush and religion bashing into every episode, keep that shit on MySpace and try to make a decent TV show next year.

Agreed. A weak end to a weak season. I can only hope that, like with Nip/Tuck, a change of venue gives the show a refreshing new life. Shane should have been killed, though. He's seriously irritating with this whole Ghost Dad angle. I also hope that's the last we see of Olsen. She didn't do much and she wasn't much to look at.

Doug, once again, owned this episode. His rambling Christian banjo song was hilarious.

This was an exasperating season to watch as the first couple of seasons were much more entertaining. Hoping a change in locale will regain some footing next season.

Im in agreement about this season being really weak... entertain us instead of trying to shock us... compared to the Season 2 cliffhanger (which had me anxiously awaiting S3) this one flat out sucked, I thought Doug was ok but not his best material either

I thought this was a comedy... I didnt laugh one time last night

I laughed at Doug's Superdome song, but that's it.

the best part of this episode for me was the return of the original opening music.

Disappointing.

And wouldn't the cops be able to smell the gas coming off of Nancy when she ran past them, as she was pretty much dousing herself as well?

Yeah, disappointing season when the season opener was so strong but went down fast... And the season finale just was not good. Nancy is getting too retarded for her own good. They should definitely head to the east coast (maybe Florida) and "re-start".

The episode itself was weak, just like all of Season 3. But I thought it was great from the standpoint that the writers can essentially start over fresh next year. This show needs a new locale, new characters, new storylines, and no more politics.

Just finished watching this season a couple days ago. Wish I would have used that time more wisely.

Yuck.

Re: 11/19/07 - Weeds Season 3 Finale - Go

Overall, the 3rd season was not as great as the 2nd season. I do like that the 3rd season took a more darker tone (while still keeping it funny too), because essentially Nancy is just digging a deeper hole for herself. I still wonder where they are going to go for 8 seasons, but I will start Season 4 this week.

As for the Bush & Christian Religion bashing (I have to remember this was filmed in 2007), I don't know why the creators go out of their way to show their political bias. You risk alienating half of the country because it is so obvious the creators are ultra liberal. I am an indepedent voter, so I can't stand Bush or Obama, but I'm anxious to see where these jokes go after Obama is elected in 2008?
