Weeds - Season one is fresh again

For some reason I had a craving for something from season 1 tonight... Something I haven't seen often and haven't seen in a while. Due in part to some recent brief discussion, Weeds somehow seemed to fit the bill. As I have mentioned recently, I got hooked on season three for a long time after I got the DVD set, and then kept going back to season two to satisfy my occasional cravings, so season one really seemed fresh again tonight. When was it released anyway, August of 2004? That's getting close to two years since I have seen some of these episodes, so I am about due to revisit some of early episodes that I haven't overdosed on. I have to say that, while I know it is not a super popular episode, and only received a 2 out of 5 on the Millennial Abyss, I found it to be very entertaining and interesting. As I have mentioned many times, each season has a different feel to it, and for some reason S1 episodes just seem so much older to me than S2 and S3. It's hard to pinpoint, but Lance actually even looks a little different in S1 than in later seasons. He kind of reminds me of Bishop from Aliens a little more than in later episodes. Anyways, I really did enjoy the episode, although, if I had to nominate an S1 episode for a Grammy, this one would not be on my list to consider. Still, it held my interest and kind of made me reminisce about the time frame when it was released. Geez, we are quickly approaching a 10 year reunion with these S1 episodes, and as I remember way back when I first saw this episode, it feels like another lifetime. I had a different job, different friends, only one niece and no nephews, and compared to now, not a care in the world. It's funny how much things can change from age 28 to age 38. OK, getting back to the episode, I enjoyed it, and although I have the utmost respect for the Millennial Abyss, I think the 2 out of 5 rating is a little harsh. According to my math, that would work out to a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10 and, although I can see some flaws in the episode, I would give it a solid 7 out of 10, and I really liked the feel of it. It had that S1 feel about it. Although the series did tackle some complicated themes and messages, I think it was also usually very clear in what it was trying to say, while at the same time not insulting the viewers intelligence by spelling out every last detail. This episode was no exception. I might not be the brightest bulb on the Christmas Tree, but I hate that feeling at the end of a show or a movie where you are trying to figure out what the heck you just watched, for example, the recently discussed Mulholland Drive. Although Weeds had some flaws, I found the plot to be very coherent and the overall experience very entertaining.
