Showtime has officially canceled Weeds — and only about five seasons too late! Season eight will be the show’s last which isn’t exactly bad news considering how much the series has declined over the years. Admittedly, there were a few great moments in the last couple of seasons but they were never enough to make up for the show’s bigger flaws. Plus, it got really hard to care about Nancy Botwin once Walter White started hanging around our televisions. But really, we’re just hoping that Shane and Silas will get a Botwin Brothers spinoff.
“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”
Also: Teaser for Season Seven of Weeds which I’m not excited about at all because this show should have ended a few seasons ago. The last season started off pretty bad but, to be completely fair, it did get better and had a few awesome moments (generally revolving around Shane and Silas). It also ended on a cliffhanger that I think actually would have been such a great series finale and honestly would’ve made me not hate the show so much but, ah, whatever. New season, same trick and her stupid iced coffee.
