After three seasons of mostly increasingly dark territory, in which Mary Louise Parker’s character has essentially given up her humanity, this three-minute promo for the sixth season of “Weeds” seems to promise a return to what made the show worth watching in the first place: It was funny. After Shane killed that woman at the end of last season, it looks as though the Botwins are on the run, settling down into new lives, with new names, and new occupations. And hopefully, new relationship dynamics. Also, Linda Hamilton will be on next season, and Nancy offers to go down on her.
This is why I’ll continue watching “Weeds,” for a little while longer, at least.
