I know it's been on for awhile now, but I don't have Showtime so I never watched it before.

This show is great. Anyone else watch it?

I'm still in season one so I have a ways to go. Planning on saving some episodes to watch in the Dam before I hit the sack at night!

I agree that it got worse with each season but I always find myself watching it anyway. I really hope they get back to a more Marijuana related show but I have to say my expectations aren't very high for next season. I liked the ending of the fifth season though sure caught me by surprise.

Great show, the first 3 seasons are best, the last 2 are a bit ticky tacky

I've followed the entire series and will say that the first two seasons and part of the third were better than the rest.
My favorite is Season 2 with the introduction of MILFweed, as named by Snoop Dogg. I was hoping that this theme would continue, but alas it was not to be. Season 3 started out ok but then had its first series of "jumped the shark" with the introduction of religion, bikers, and a Mexican Cartel.
I think the series has one, maybe two more seasons remaining, at least as far as I am concerned. The subplots are becoming more unbelievable, and the underlying theme, cannabis, has become relegated to an afterthought.
In Season 4, there were glimpses of cannabis with Silas growing in the back of a cheese shop and hooking up with the MILF that owns it. Season 5 had brief moments when Silas and Doug started a Medical Marijuana Dispensary, but this too was short lived when this story line got stupid in a hurry (read: another "jump the shark" moment), then Celia and Dean sell the confiscated gear through a cosmetics-selling scheme. Yawn.
I hope Season 6 brings back more story lines involving cannabis and social issues that surround it.

Peace.
