"He Taught Me How to Drive-by" Season 3, Episode 7

OK, Weeds, you've got me back blogging, at least until this new DVD with Episodes 5-9 runs dry. Now speaking of dry, and by association wet... Be still my Mary-Louise Parker-lusting heart. That last scene? Forgetting for a moment that it came out of nowhere... Thud! Jeffrey Dean Morgan, if you were out there, watching... reminiscing... My condolences to you. That MLP - such a trouper! Yes, Nancy has much reason to celebrate. Though U-turn's sudden (and assisted) death did not clear her debt, Marvin's utter ineptitude as da new boss, coupled with Guillermo's need for his H, his smack, his heroin, finally put her in the clear. She's done with that nasty side of the bud biz... right? Then again, her other boss isn't 100 percent squeaky-clean either, with the illegal construction crew, under-the-table bribes and whatnot. I liked how he told party-planner Nancy to make her $5,000 look like 10, then she in turn tells caterer Andy to make $1,000 look like 5. At least Andy seemed to fare better with that gig than at the porno shoot. (Is Lexington Steele a real porn titan? Anyone know? Bueller?) Doug almost had that director sold on his qualifications as a flag-raising pirate, peg leg included. Poor Dean, caught staring at the naked woman's chest. Imagine! What warmed me up to Weeds again, I must admit, is Mary-Kate Olsen as Tara, Silas' Lord-following, reefer-toking girlfriend. Her line deliveries are just perfect for the role, and her character is such a rash of contradictions, though her rationalizations ("God created weed") pass muster. I only hope she honors her pledge of virginity, because to have her "succumb" would be a cop-out. It was also perfect how an exasperated Nancy opted to forego the usual riot act and simply instruct Silas' GF that sleepovers are forbidden. Lastly, we have Shane's subplot at the summer school. When he "stumped the band" by inviting the teacher to solve the mystery of the federally funded school that teaches religious doctrine? Priceless. But what's Isabella's plan with Shane's new crush? Simply wants Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm for her Sapphic self? Bullets: " I know it's the episode title, but Nancy eulogizing U-turn by saying to some hoodlum, "He taught me how to drive-by" still got a chuckle here. " The omnipresence of Nance's Prius is actually starting to make my wife interested in the car! Product placement pays off. " Nancy sharing her condolences with Marvin over the death of his cousin... or whatever his "cuz" U-turn was to him. " Doug wanting to bail on the meeting with Sullivan to "get home for Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader." So that's who's watching that show! (And how much you want to wager Doug isn't?) show less
