The 25 Worst Seasons of Great TV Shows

14. Weeds, Season 4 (Showtime; June 16, 2008 - September 15, 2008)

Fans of Weeds were drawn in by a surburban satire of a housewife (played by Mary-Louise Parker) who had to sell drugs to support her family. By the fourth season, the show was no longer set in the suburbs, and the family was pretty much taking care of itself, and many fans felt that Weedswas no longer the show they had signed on for.

Though we never think it is a great idea to keep a show treading the same ground over and over again, season 4 went too far, presenting an entirely different show from the prior three seasons. Losing Agrestic—the parodically suburban setting of the first three seasons—was a blow, one that was compounded as it became increasingly difficult to understand Nancy's motivations when she was longer fighter for her family's financial well-being on a weekly basis.
