The final season of 'Weeds' is almost making a sprint to the finish line, but it seems more concerned with wrapping things up than doing so gracefully, as we're now glossing over plot points that would have been much larger in seasons past.
'Weeds' continues to re-shape Nancy, using the bullet in her head as a soft reset button, allowing the Botwin family to change course. But after 77 days in the hospital, is Nancy really ready to change? And will her family go along with her?
When last we left the troubled Botwin family of 'Weeds,' Nancy and her family (including sister Jill) were celebrating their new home in Connecticut, but someone had a rifle scope pointed at Nancy, and as the episode ended a single shot was fired...
Who got smoked? It's the question we're seeing plastered all around town, and the one we've been asking ourselves ever since 'Weeds' seventh season finale "Do Her/Don't Do Her" put Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) in the crosshairs, before cutting ominously to black with a bang. So, how would you like a fresh crop of spoilers in advance of 'Weeds' eighth, and final season?
Looks like the 'Weeds' bag is empty, folks. Shut off your growth lights, pack up your bongs, and sift through the haze for more marijuana metaphors, because Showtime has decided to pass on any additional seasons of long-running Mary-Louise Parker comedy 'Weeds.'
Whether or not you think that 'Weeds' has grown a bit wild during its run and should probably be pruned before the quality really dips, there's no arguing that the show makes some impressive art and promotional poster campaigns. How could you not, when you've still got the beautiful (and almost-50!) Mary Louise-Parker as your lead? As we get ready to light up season 8, take a look at the latest promotional posters!
One might not find it so easy to connect Matt LeBlanc to marijuana (okay, we're ignoring a REALLY obvious joke there), but leave it to Showtime to do the work for us! With both hit comedies 'Episodes' and 'Weeds' set to roll up their brand new seasons on the pay cable network this summer, it's high time we got down to business with some actual footage!
Ah, 4/20. That noblest of holidays where we gather with our closest friends, prepare the traditional feast of junk food, gather around the fire and...you know something? We're hungry. Wait, what were we talking about again? Oh, of course! Our friends at Showtime and 'Weeds' have a special message for us today!
While it's unlikely that anything will ever top the "huh?" moment that followed 'The Sopranos' cutting to black at the end of its series finale, the final moments of 'Weeds' Season 7 left more than a few viewers uncertain as to the fate of Nancy Botwin, or the rest of her family. So with details on Season 8 light thus far, who was at the other end of 'Weeds'' smoking gun?
There are still quite a a few questions to be answered when Showtime's long-running pot comedy 'Weeds' returns for an eighth, and potentially final season on July 8, and details are being kept tight, but a fresh offering from the garden might be just what we need to get back in the high spirits.
