What a long strange trip it’s been over the past eight season for Nancy Botwin and clan. From a young suburban widow and mother of two selling weed in her upper middle class neighborhood to pay the bills, to the wife of a Mexican politician/drug lord and back to a widow selling weed, the protagonist of the dark comedy Weeds was numbingly stupid with her decisions, but it made for great TV. The eighth and final season of the sometimes wobbily series ended pretty satisfyingly, with Botwin and a few more hangers on settling in suburban CT to start over one more time. The hour-long, future-set finale ended up tying up all loose ends nicely. Highly addictive up to the end.
