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!

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:

Weeds: Why It Would Suck If This Were the Series Finale

<i>Weeds</i>: Why It Would Suck If This Were the Series Finale

I'm not sure how many there are of us left, but I know I can't be the only person who has faithfully watched Weeds from day one up until last night's season -- and possibly series, if Showtime doesn't renew -- finale. Even if you haven't seen the series completely through, the fact that you made it through this season is frankly pretty impressive. It's had its high points (everything with Pouncy House, Shane's story arc, shreds of Andy growing up, even some Doug moments) and serious lows (Nancy never ever changing ever, Silas constantly pouting, the whole Stevie thing, as if we're supposed to give a shit), but if what we saw in the final moment of "Do Her/Don't Do Her" truly was the close to seven long seasons of seeing the rise and fall and rise and fall and several more rounds of both of Nancy Botwin... well then I would be sorely disappointed, for more reasons than one.

<i>How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)</i>: Shut Up and Make Me Laugh

If you have trouble making it through an episode of the unrealistic (yet, in my opinion, charming) banter on Happy Endings, I'd be shocked if you were able to tolerate a few minutes of ABC's new How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life). Every character, joke and line of dialogue screams of trying too hard, and the interactive notes on-screen feel like a bad TV trend that we'll look back on in a few years and make fun of ourselves for. All of this is especially a shame, given that the show does have potential.
