Blair, Natalie, Tootie, and Jo say goodbye to their beloved Mrs. G: and things will never be the same again in The Facts of Life: Season Eight.
When Edna Garrett finds love, the girls are understandably overjoyed: but it turns bittersweet when they realize that their longtime friend and mentor will be leaving them. Ednas sister Beverly Ann (Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman) steps in to keep an eye on them, but as the year passes and graduation from Langley College looms for Blair and Jo, it appears that the winds of change that havent finished blowing just yet.
Other highlights of Season Eight include a rockin trip back to the 1960s, an Eastland girls reunion featuring some familiar faces for longtime fans of the series, guest appearances by George Clooney and pop star Stacey Q., and a surprising, hilarious murder mystery in which no one-and we mean no one- is truly safe.

Many old faces come back in this season including several of the girls from season 1 (for a reunion show), several old boyfriends and a pest from earlier seasons. Also, Jo’s and Blair’s parents all come to watch the girls graduate from Langley. The reunion show is a bit of a let-down as the guest actresses are clearly playing the roles of the same immature characters we saw in season one, just masked as adults. These characters seem oddly flat and out of place next to our four leading ladies. Though, the confrontation between Sue Anne and Jo is definitely worth watching for.
George Clooney’s character only makes guest appearances and leaves midway through the season, while Mackenzie Astin’s character becomes permanent in a most official way later in the season. The season finale is a cliffhanger, which will leave you weeping in much the same way as the season opener did.
Unlike season 7, this season definitely has more school focus and less store focus. There are several episodes that might even have you wondering if the store is ever open. It definitely is awkward that Blair has to get a job for a class, with no mention of her job at the store. The dramatic situations of this season definitely test the women for what it truly means to be adults.
