“Weeds”: Awkward timing for season finale

Weedsfinalemlpag_2Yikes, awkward timing for the season finale of “Weeds.” Showtime skein’s third-season closer involves our favorite gated-community suburbanites fleeing from a raging wildfire. Episode titled “Go” is set to air Nov. 19.

Showtime took pains to note in its listing release issued Wednesday that the segs were shot over the summer, and in no way is the show trying to grandstand on the real-life tragedy that hit so many in Southern California just a few days ago. In fairness to the show, wildfires are  a fact of life in this state, so it’s a natural plot point. But now that “Weeds” maven Jenji Kohan and the rest of her scribe team are on strike, show’s probably hard-pressed to tweak even a line or two if there’s Weedsfinalenealon one that hits too close to the recent headlines.

I have to confess to being way behind on my “Weeds” viewing this season, but the season finale synopsis sounds intriguing enough to make me fire up the DVR this weekend and reconnect with our friends in Agrestic. I have to find out why Kevin Nealon’s character appears to be getting romantic with his banjo.
