HD Highlights: August 30

SoHo Highlight: Weeds (Sky 10, 8.30, 5.1) Season eight of this drug-addled comedy’s been a bust to date, but one US blog, Honest Reviews Corner, reckons tonight’s episode is a return to form. “I hated the earlier episodes of Weeds. There were no drugs, no suspense, no surprises, nothing was right. So I took a break from writing recaps … But I am happy to tell you that I am back, and so is the drugs, the suspense and the surprises.” Concurred the AV Club: “The scattered nature of the season’s storylines has been a recurring concern, but in ‘Unfreeze’ it gains more thematic focus … ‘Unfreeze’ is the most solid the season has felt to date.” ✭✭✭
