Tonight in HD: December 14

SoHo Highlight: Weeds (Sky 10, 9.30, 5.1) Nancy faces difficult choices when the Botwins head for the airport, where Andy attempts to calm the nerves of Shane and Warren, while Silas considers staying behind with Lar. Season six segues into season seven, which jumps ahead three years with Nancy on parole in a New York halfway house, and Silas, Shane, Andy and Doug having settled into new lives in Copenhagen. As the New York Daily News said, “Nancy Botwin has moved to New York, and that may give her Showtime series Weeds some of the fresh energy the move was designed to provide.” Agreed Newsday: “It feels fresh and amusing. True Blood did a similar fast-forward, and both have benefited.” Entertainment Weekly was more to the point: “Mercifully, it seems as if tonight’s episode will plant the seeds for a rebirth.” ✭✭✭✭
