Hollywood TV Review: ‘Weeds’ season six opener — smart, but slow

By Anthony D’Alessandro
HollywoodNews.com: The “Weeds” season six opener of “Thwack” unfortunately doesn’t live up to its pointed title, however, the good news is that creator Jenji Kohan is finally moving the Botwin family away from the Mexican border after they’ve overstayed the drama there for the last two seasons.
The episode, like many “Weeds” season openers, begins promptly after its finale’s riveting cliffhanger, but the pacing slows. Nancy gathers her chicks, err sons, after young teen Shane kills Pilar, the dastardly political consultant to her Mexican beau Esteban, with a croquet mallet. In season 5, Pilar was grooming Esteban as a candidate in the race for Mexico’s governor. She felt Nancy’s family was an unsavory part of his life. Thus, Pilar threatened to kill Shane and Silas. Feeling his mother’s luck was running out, Shane offed Pilar into the pool.
Fearing Esteban’s wrath over the murder, Nancy flees the scene of the crime at Pilar’s mansion and proceeds to collect her belongings at Esteban’s house. In need of a bigger car, specifically her brother-in-law Andy’s new mini-van, she heads over to his pad where he’s contending with problems of his own. Gayle, an anti-abortionist protester and crazed lover of Andy’s fiancé Audra, has tied her up with a crossbow pointed at her head. Andy looks like a schmuck having dashed out of the house. Nancy devises a save-face plan for Andy to re-enter and battle Gayle. Though Nancy and Andy restrain Gayle, Audra is offended that Andy failed to protect her initially. Furthermore, it is obvious he still has feelings for Nancy. Hence, Andy decides to go on the lamb with Nancy.
Kohan’s gift remains her ability to uniquely draw out dramatic scenes and heighten them like a playwright. However, this can work for and against the show’s longevity and in “Thwack” Kohan’s talents have their high and low points.
Rather than propelling the action promptly, the characters are reduced to bickering over minutiae before embarking on their next move. Nancy, Silas and Shane squabble as they pack the car. When Nancy arrives at Andy’s, he’s obsesses for some time about his failure to protect Audra before they devise a plan to nab Gayle. These chit-chats are a wonderful technique for painting personalities – but we’re already acquainted with the Botwin posse. [...]

Role of a lifetime: Scarlett Johansson as Courtney Love? And Cobain is…

By HollywoodNews.com
HollywoodNews.com: Shortly after blabbing that she slept with Mr. Gwen Stefani aka Gavin Rossdale, Courtney Love is co-producing a Kort Cobain biopic and “Iron Man 2” babe Scarlett Johansson would rush at the chance to play the devilish blonde.
Johansson who is an avid Hole aficionado would love get all method over the role.
She recently exclaimed to MTV News, “I know that there is a script, that’s as much as I know about it. I’m a big fan of Courtney’s and I think she’s very, very talented. But I don’t know anything about the project.”
It would be a challenge, definitely would be a challenge. I think the idea is interesting and intriguing, but I would have to really wrap my head around it.”
Love is apparently screaming that she wants Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy to star as Kurt Cobain.
Actually, Hollywood News thinks Love can do better: how about Hunter Parrish from Showtime’s “Weeds”? Or Chris Pine of “Bottle Shock” and “Star Trek” fame? Or Greyson Fletcher from David Milch’s “John From Cincinnati”?
