Do You Prefer Weeds In or Away From Agrestic?

The first three seasons of Weeds had a fairly simple story: suburban mom starts dealing pot after her husband's death to keep her kids living nice lives in their comfortable McMansion. But starting with season four, the show blew up that formula completely, leaving behind the boring subdivision and moving the Botwin family to the Mexican border, where many of their old Agrestic associates have now relocated as well.

I still miss some of what Weeds left behind in Agrestic — Conrad and Heylia, mostly — but the show did pick up a new sense of urgency and danger when it moved closer to the heart of a Mexican drug ring. Looking back over the five seasons, did you prefer Weeds when it was set in suburbia? Or did you start to like the show more when it broke away from those "little boxes" and headed to the border?

i think that it's ok either way. the season it getting more dicey these days though - so that's kind of fun since it's something that couldn't have happened in agrestic.

i stopped watching after the second season (i loved the show i just graduated and didn't have time anymore) - i am going to try to get the seasons and start watching again...i can't believe the setting has changed so much...i think i would definitely miss the theme song for sure, but the one thing i find weird is that all the other characters (well, most) have RELOCATED with the family? weird

I still watch, and still like the show quite a bit, but I did like Agrestic a bit better.

I miss Conrad! I love the show, but really wish they picked up where their love affair was just beginning.

It's like comparing two different shows. Personally, I miss the old show. There aren't a lot of likeable characters anymore (even Shane is a tool now). It doesn't alternate funny-serious as well go from something disturbingly shocking like a rape scene to something ridiculously outlandish, like Celia organizing a guerrilla's tent. It's not that I don't expect shows to evolve and change, I'm just disappointed it evolved into this.

I prefer the Agrestic setting. The Nancy character has become too apathetic for words lately, and is dangerously close to getting on my nerves.

The whole point of the show was that they lived in a suburb and she sold pot-
