The Weeds Wishlist: "How cool would it be if there was a genie in this hookah?"

I'd love to see a flashback episode about everyone on the show. Nancy living with her family, Heylia starting and developing her business and so on. I would also like to see Quinn again. She seemed to belong in Agrestic.

That's the one I want to see. I want to know how Heylia, Conrad and Co got started in the business and how they managed to become #1 Weed sellers in their neighbourhood. Also would be interested to see a flashback of the last time Andy was around before he returned in the first season.
Heylia starting and developing her business

*That the Shane/Zooey abduction thing don't last too long.
*More of Nancy and Conrad together colloborating. The journey they're about to take with U-Turn looks to be an interesting one.
*Less annoying Silas.
*More juicy plots for Celia, Doug and Andy + something interesting for Heylia. She's probably the most underused character on the show.

Whitford can even play a colleague of Allison Janney's lawyer character this way Janney can come back and they can all be on screen together.
But honestly, I'd settle for Whitford in just 1 episode as long as he had scenes with MLP.

I really enjoyed the first season when it was just a funny show about a former dancer/ suburban mom dealing pot. That was good, the developed some funny interesting charactors some origina; "edgy" situations" & it was good. But in the second season they had to go & get all intense with the DEA & U turn & the Armenians & all. I mean I get that drug dealing isn't fun, but lighten up already.

I second the vote for back story and flashbacks to Nancy as a housewife. Judah's such a big cipher to me. What does she miss about him specifically? What kind of dad was he? I would have liked to see (more of) this at the very beginning for emotional heft, but it's not too late.
Totally thirded ;) ...plus, who could say no to more screentime for Jeffrey Dean Morgan? Certainly not me - nor Morgan, what with the habit TV writers seem to be getting into of casting him as the lost true love!
Also - who wants more Josh? I do! I want to see him and Doug play off each other, I think exploring Doug's reaction to his son's homosexuality would be so much fun - if there's any show that could bring a new dynamic to coming out in the suburbs, it's WEEDS.

Agreed. The Andy in Army storyline just seems like a watered down version of Buster in Army from "Arrested Development," complete with missing appendages and botched pot deals. At least Nancy isn't building homes in Iraq.
Please don't send Andy to Army (I imagine their recruiting woes would let them let him in with only eight toes) (I didn't mean for that to rhyme)! I like him being his dopey, horndoggy self, but I love him in those moments he drops the funny and lets Nancy know he's there for the boys and her.

She needs a beat down for that, and for her general attitude, which while awesome, can become grating, because she takes shit too far some times.
My second wish is for Celia and U-Turn to meet and fall in love. Just imagine that.

1. Silas beaten by Nancy. With a bat.
2. More Celia with Doug. Both are awesome.
3. U-Turn dead. I am sick and tired of him. The introduction of this character made the show gloomy and depressing. I do not want Nancy or Conrad to work for him, I want them to be free and I want this show to be light and funny like it used to be. Hope Heylia has a good plan how to take care of him.
4. I want Sanjay to meet Josh.
5. I want Kat back later this season. Heart-hug. Heart-hug!

Yes. Nancy. Or anyone really. Hee.
Posted Aug 29, 2007 @ 10:55 PM
2. Nancy/Conrad hookup.
3. U-Turn killed which is arranged by Heylia.
4. More Kevin Nealon. His scenes this season are minimal.
5. That Andy doesn't go to Iraq and winds up with no toes.
6. Heylia stops being so stuck up.
7. That Mary-Kate totally doesn't suck in her role.
8. More heart hugs.
9. More funny ass ending songs like in 303. "knock, knock, who's there?"
10. Lupita doesn't get fired.

I kinda wish they'd keep Doug's wife hidden away like Karen's husband on Will & Grace or Meris on Frasier. Some things are better left to the imagination and she's becoming one of those characters for me.

Hands down no question Brad Whitford with a solid 4-episode arc.
My wish is for Nancy to find Alejandro and have him off U-Turn.

I wish that Andy and Nancy's twu luv had stayed unspoken until the last 2-3 episodes of the series, if ever.
I wish that Doug had tripped during his autoerotic asphyxiation, had a near-death experience, and decided to get his shit together again. Bought a suit, and done this marijuana business super professionally. Maybe even taught Silas some business lessons, so their relationship would be more equal and less insta-mature Silas babysitting wacky stagnant Kevin Nealon.
I wish that Celia's husband would have died or something, because otherwise I can see no reason for Isabella to be living in the garage with Celia. (I can't believe that he gets to stay around, while Heylia and Conrad had to go. Like, really, show?)
I wish that I understood Nancy, even a little, after 4.5 seasons of watching her. And that she wouldn't stay with a man who treats her like shit, rape or otherwise, just because she's supposed to be Nancy Fucking Botwin. Even Celia got away from her kidnapper.
I wish for, in the final season, at least a brief return to Agrestic--after all, we spent 3 seasons there--and some tying up of all these threads that the show just throws out and dangles in our face and then takes away to replace with new, stupider threads.
Most of all, I wish that I had my show back, and I wish that bored people in the writers' room wouldn't fuck up a beloved and high-quality program with whatever shit they think will stick.
This cast will never be assembled again--there will never be another Weeds. There will probably be 7 seasons, max. This is the only opportunity for this show, and they are throwing it away, like so many shows have done before.
Jenji has mentioned how she changes the show to keep the writers from getting bored. How about replacing the bored writers. I think that dozens of people here could come up with storylines 10x better than the shit they are putting on our screens. But it's like these writers (and Grey's and Gilmore's and so many shows) know that they have you ensnared, that you will probably stick around or at least tune in for the final episodes, so they feel free to write whatever amuses them, the integrity of the characters and show be damned.

but I still think Nancy and some of the other characters are engaging personalities in their own right
--- I kind wish they would do a webisode series with short scenes with just vignette-y character interactions/one-off anecdote scenes or even short films.

I also wish that Elizabeth Perkins pops up at SOME point this season, though I know it's unlikely.

My favorite part of the episode was Nancy coming down the stairs with all the luggage - bump, bump, bump - as if this sort of thing - your child murdering someone and you are now forced to go on the lam - happens all the time. (Actually I guess with the Botwins it does.)
And of course Uncle Andy (who has always been my favorite) "Who did Shane kill?" heh.
ITA - this is the 1st epi, but I think we will see more of the same but different. The kids are a little older; the whole mallet thing was hilarious in conjunction with the swan dive from the roof. The pace of this episode was pretty quick for the most part and I have every confidence that we as fans will continue to be rewarded for our loyalty.
