Given the recent legalisation of marijuana in California, and the popularity of programmes such as Breaking Bad and Narcos, the premise of Weeds seems antiquated. Weeds was at its best in the first three seasons, which poked fun at the claustrophobia and hypocrisy of suburbia, with theme song Little Boxes emphasising the stifling conformity.

It looked as if she might be willing to take responsibility for her mistakes at last. There were some heart-racing moments in those latter seasons and you could never accuse Weeds of being boring — just incredible, bordering on nonsensical.
