Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The last time we saw Nancy and the Botwins it was through the scope of a hit man's rifle. Nancy had sprung from the joint and gone to New York City where she made a fresh start doing what she does best selling pot and making enemies. Now everyone's wondering who put out the hit and who got smoked.

Amazon.com

The final season of Weeds represents a return to the suburbs and an attempt at normalcy. Unfortunately, Nancy's move to Connecticut to live with her sister, Jill (Jennifer Jason Leigh), resulted in a shot to the head. While recovering in the hospital, Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) starts to deal again, but it's only a temporary detour while Shane (Alexander Gould), who has been training with the NYPD--and dating a fellow cadet--uncovers the identity of the shooter: a long-forgotten figure from Nancy's past. With that mystery solved, Nancy plunges back into the search for legit work, which leads her to become a pharmaceutical rep, among the year's more clever developments, since few people know more about drugs than Nancy Botwin, who believes "the future is in legalized pot." In the course of getting to know her neighbors, she also strikes sparks with a handsome rabbi (Hawthorne's David Julian Hirsh).

As for her extended clan, Silas (Hunter Parrish) finds a legal way to pursue his passion, Andy (Justin Kirk) gets serious about fatherhood, and Doug (Kevin Nealon) forms his own religion (it's particularly nice to see Nancy and Silas getting along again). Other changes include new opening credits, which map out Nancy's previous moves, and the return of the original theme song, "Little Boxes," each time performed by different musicians, like Nealon and Steve Martin, while the finale skips ahead eight years to catch up with everybody, including Stevie (Mateus Ward) and characters from Agrestic and Ren Mar. Extra features offer deleted scenes and commentary from cast and crew, but the last words belong to Jill, who sums up the entire series when she tells Nancy, "You live this incredible, insane life of intrigue and danger where you break the law and get away with it and you never ever die!" --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Great series one of the few that I have watched every single episode.

For reasons that I don't understand, fans of the long-running Showtime series "Weeds" are divided, when it comes to the final season. I gave Season Seven of Weeds 5 stars, because I didn't want to admit that the quality had dipped drastically. If S7 were the last, I truly would have been upset. In season eight, Jenji Kohan and crew know from the beginning that it's the last season. It started out as a show primarily about family. So we get more moments with our core characters. We aren't introduced to any new cartoonish bad guys - drug dealers or gangsters. We learn to love the characters that we used to love again.

And as a longtime fan who has been here since the beginning, I think it's the best way they could have ended things. For the first time in years, we get genuine character development, most of the characters redeem themselves, and we're left with a quiet and nuanced series finale that reminded me that there is some hope in the cynical world of "Weeds".

The start of season eight shows our favorite antiheroine Nancy Botwin recovering from a possibly fatal shot to the head. Not one member of her family sheds a tear, and we're reminded how cynical and broken they are. We have yet another new location - fictitious Connecticut suburb Old Sandwich. It's a lot like Agrestic. It's interesting that the show had this big multi-location journey over eight years, to ultimately end up where they began.

After a three-month recovery, Nancy vows to be a better person, after finally realizing that she's been a pretty terrible person. Stevie is back in her life, and she's trying to allow him as much of a normal life as possible. She gets out of the drug game (at least for a while), and gets a legit job, where she is still around drugs, ironically.

I just finished watching this season; I watched all the other seasons to right after I ordered this season and it really was helpful. I think this is one show you should start with the first season and work your way through to the end. With that said this had to be my favorite season yet. The humor is wonderful and the actors are the best. Its funny you look at the Botwins and they look like a family. I've grown to love this family. This season once again it is full of surprises. I'm not going to say much and spoil the fun for you. I'm amazed that they could pull this show off on TV but they did and it worked. I loved how they brought back the old theme song and got people caught up with the history of the show. They took a lot of bold chances with this to keep it fresh and once again it worked out nicely. What can I say but I love this show and am thankful that I have the dvds so I can watch it again and again. By the way I have watched all of the seasons multiple times and have picked up a number of different things each time. A one of a kind show and it such a great job on the ending they didn't blow it.

This is the last season of a great series. No, I won't say that it is the best, but I sure liked it and it wraps things up rather nicely. It was money well spent if you're a fan.

I have to agree that the final season wasn't quite as outrageous as previous seasons, but I also thought that it was good seeing everything come together and provide some closure - unlike other series finales, e.g., The Sopranos. The overall series has been a pleasure to watch, was extremely well written and very entertaining.

I rarely find a series that entertains me enough to stick with it for longer than a season or two. Weeds was certainly the exception. I simply couldn't wait to see what Nancy was going to get herself into next. At the end of Season 7 I was REALLY hoping we'd get a season 8. Season 8 provided closure to me for the characters. I particularly liked the last two episodes. It brought the series around full circle with the 5 mainstays of the show. I liked that they advanced time as forward as they did for the very end. Will be looking for more work from these folks!

I am almost at a loss of words at how bad this season was. I own every season on bluray and after watching season 8... I have a strong urge to sell every season because now that I know how poorly this series ends, I can't imagine rewatching it. What a sad, sad life for the Botwin family.

Season 8 of weeds is just the final entry in a show that should have ended 5 seasons ago. There is no suspense, nothing interesting. All the excitement of the first few seasons is relegated to the background just so they can still claim the show is about drugs/drug dealing. Everyone pretends like nothing from their past happens, past characters come back for no reason, everything is forgiven and everyone lives happily ever after. Please. If you like pointless melodrama, then this is the perfect season for you.
