I will only watch if Elizabeth Perkins returns, the true MVP of the series. “Weeds” jumped the shark with Season 3 and never redeemed its good qualities from that point onward.November 3, 2019 at 2:18 pm #1203164575
The last two episodes definitely closed the series nicely. I love “bottle episodes” so Episode 10 was great. The finale has a nice impact, and I enjoy how full circle the world of this show came together. Will very much miss this series!October 25, 2019 at 5:38 pm #1203153034
I’m actually really liking (most parts) the final season. I’ve been a fan since season one and have stayed with show. That being said, Maura Tierney is MVP of the series, and her performance will be one of the best of decade for me (especially the episode–which I believe was her tape–where she was singing “Change the Locks” in Season 2).October 25, 2019 at 5:33 pm #1203153030
Strong pilot–I knew absolutely nothing of the plot and had no previous experience with any of the other material related to this show, so I was confused, but intrigued. I know Jean Smart is in the previews, but she’s my main reason to tune in so a little bummed she wasn’t in the first episode.October 11, 2019 at 2:54 pm #1203132581
Will Jean Smart get a lot to do here? She’d be my main reason for tuning in.October 9, 2019 at 5:43 pm #1203130058

Blanchett is the most realistic (perhaps Maggie Smith, too, if Downton gets her a nom), but I’d love to see Dianne Wiest in something worthy of her talents!September 25, 2019 at 12:10 pm #1203102155
Worst Acting Winners of the Decade:
3. Damian Lewis, Homeland
2. Laura Linney, The Big C
1. Jodie Comer, Killing Eve
Whaaa? All of these wins are very good, especially Laura Linney and Damian Lewis. Linney should have also won for Season 1 in the comedy category, too.September 23, 2019 at 7:01 pm #1203098922
I think a lot of people (myself included, especially) fall for programs with baity performances. WTSU was a fever dream of baity, scene-chewing performances…which is why I preferred it over “Chernobyl” but that always isn’t important to voters.September 23, 2019 at 9:57 am #1203098083
I’m very curious about this series, given all of its wins last night.
It’s surprising that the first season received no nominations, and yesterday the Emmys went crazy for it. That usually doesn’t happen (going from zero to a ton of acclaim). I will add it to my watch list.September 23, 2019 at 9:54 am #1203098075
Patricia Arquette for “The Act”September 20, 2019 at 6:19 pm #1203089930
The only time limit define I see written to provide any guideline would be the 5% rule for supporting performances in miniseries. Aka the Ellen Burstyn Mrs. Harris rule.
Random, but related tangent: It’s sad “Mrs. Harris” often gets remembered for the Ellen Burstyn controversy. It’s a wonderful film, and I stand by this: it’s Annette Bening’s best performance (and this is coming from someone who believes she should have a couple of Oscars on her mantle, too).September 16, 2019 at 5:43 pm #1203081083
This show is literally phenomenal and definitely ignites a rage. Wow, so good–I watched in one sitting. Merritt Weaver, Toni Collette, and Kaitlyn Dever (well, the entire cast) were exceptional.
Merritt Weaver was truly on her A-game: she gave a nuanced, focused performance that left an impression. I still can’t believe from my early years of being a “Nurse Jackie” fan that Weaver has come so far. She’s THAT good here. She will be deserving of another Emmy win if nominated.
