I thought that this week's episode of Weeds STUNK. What is funny about a kid soldier getting killed by having his chest penetrated by a dummy missile warhead? Jesus! These guys have forgotten how to be funny. If the next episode is even half as bad as this one was, I'm through.
I agree that U-Turn is a downer but the irritation he engendered in me was nothing compared to some of the other dreck in this episode. It is appalling when a show is so awful that even an actress as immensely talented and charming as Mary-Louise Parker can't salvage it.
In fairness, there were a few funny lines, especially the scatological, homophobic invective the drill sergeant directed at the recruits on the obstacle course. Still, that wasn't enough to rescue this mess from sadness and dreariness.
