Have you ever heard the saying "Jump the Shark?" it is when TV Shows are failing in the ratings, or they have no fresh story lines for the existing cast, the Jump the Shark AKA add a new cast member, one who existing usually in the back story of a series.
I think Weeds Jumped the Shark bring Albert Brooks into the show - I hope it is for a limited time until they resettle in that NEW business opertunity - but something tells me he'll be a regular. Nothing wrong with that, he'll be great off of Andy and Kenin Neelans characters. Could be interesting, but they needed a STRONG new character I think this season to keep it fresh, and he is FAMILY to Nancy, so no weird love twists for a change.
Here's to a good season!
