Is There Any Hope for Weeds Season 8?

Is There Any Hope for <i>Weeds</i> Season 8?

I think I was so angry after watching the Season 7 finale of Weeds that I missed a few plot points that set up this season... or maybe I hated them so much, I wanted to just reimagine them. It's hard to tell. But now that the show is back for an eighth and final installment, the "should that have been the series finale?" predicament is over and we're left with a final 13 episodes to close out the series. Much as I'm hoping Weeds goes out on a high note, there were definitely moments in last night's "Messy" that made me think that Jenji Kohan could finish the show either way. As it stands now, there are solid reasons on both sides on the coin for whether or not Weeds will go out gracefully:

The Nine Best Lines from the Bad Girls Club Season 8 Premiere

The Nine Best Lines from the <I>Bad Girls Club</i> Season 8 Premiere

I'm frankly shocked that it took Bad Girls Club this long to set a season in Las Vegas -- where else can you pull out a bitch's weave at 8 AM in 105-degree weather? The teaser for this season promises a lot of nudity, fighting and blacking out on the streets of Nevada, and if last night's premiere was any indication, it will all be pretty awesome and full of puking. I feel especially confident after hearing these highly ridiculous quotes during the episode (and there were more in the introductory flash-forward, but let's just stick to what we actually saw go down):

TWoP 10: Reasons This Could Be Idol‘s Best Season Yet

TWoP 10: Reasons This Could Be <I>Idol</I>‘s Best Season Yet

We're going to admit it, as much as we dread the hours that American Idol sucks out of our otherwise somewhat productive lives as couch potatoes, we can't help ourselves from watching it. No matter how much we hated the season that preceded it and are wary of the lies about how this season will be so much better. It's like going back to a bad boyfriend, or continuing to tune in to Heroes. However, somehow, it seems like Season 8 could actually be better. Maybe we've just been beaten down, or maybe we're just really irrationally thrilled they are actually making some of the promised changes, but we're feeling pretty positive about the new season so far. Here's why.

Weeds: The Worst Things About the Series Finale

<i>Weeds</i>: The Worst Things About the Series Finale

This really wasn't a terrible season of Weeds. Yes, the eighth and final installment followed the same pattern every season before it did -- immediate chaos following the previous finale, a new place, relative stability for the gang, utter batshit insanity and then the illusion of character development that eventually reveals itself as a temporary mood change -- but the drama in Old Sandwich was fun. I really enjoyed the stuff with Tim Scottson, Jill and Andy turned out to have a lot of believable chemistry, the Earth didn't collapse onto Silas, Nancy didn't totally ruin everything and Shane... well, Shane had that cute girlfriend and some fun with crooked cops. Doug wasn't even in it that much. Really, not bad for this show!
