Pot-selling single mom turned danger junkie Nancy Botwin's desperate circumstances keep calling for more and more desperate measures. Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Mary-Louise Parker stars in this outrageously addictive hit series.

That description's a bit off, though. "A mother resorts to selling marijuana to keep her family afloat after the death of her husband." would be appropriate, in a nutshell. It's grown far beyond that, though.
Anyway, this is the final season (season 8) and I'm gonna miss Weeds! I think the first episode of this season was spectacular and pretty much par for the course. Poor Andy is really losing it. And Nancy! Hopefully she won't be stuck in the hospital for too many episodes. I want to see her in action.

My opinion is that, yes, it's definitely worth catching up on. This season, though it's only two episodes in, is great and actually a little heartwarming. Plus, it's the last season of the series so you might as well!
I don't care for clowns either, especially skeezy ones like that one. I'm glad she put him in his place.

I was totally shocked when Shane came in with the cops to arrest Tim! I thought he was gonna be a solo vigilante. That kid was well on his way to becoming a serial killer, so I'm glad he's being taken care of.

Edna, I agree. Eight seasons doesn't seem like enough, especially when you consider how many people are addicted to it.

If they would have ended season 3 and then picked it up in a new location with her trying to start over and letting the hilarity ensue it would have gone on for at least 7 more seasons.
The first 3 seasons were masterful. This was one of my favorite shows on TV but then after the fire it just became so random and stupid to follow. I lose interest but had invested so much time into it that I had to watch the rest of the seasons. They had their moments but frankly season 3 should have been the end of it.

I love Weeds and I do not even partake in drugs or alcohol but I think the show was really good. On one hand I am sad to see it go but on the other hand the episodes were getting kind of stale like they were running out of new material. I think once it got to the season following the killing of Pilar by Shane it sort of got boring until the last episode when Nancy goes to jail.

I miss Weeds SO much! But, I do have to agree the last few seasons were pretty dry and redundant. I wish she had stayed in suburbia, the series would have been so much more interesting. I think it got kind of far fetched and unrealistic when they began travelling around the world, to trailer parks, and the beach, and NYC, etc. It was kind of like Desperate Housewives with a twist when the series first began and I LOVED that about it. I watched the entire series just out of loyalty (because I was such a fan), but they definitely dragged it out for way too many seasons.

You said it perfectly. I love the show and all the early episodes. But then it just seems like they started dragging it out and got boring. I'm glad they ended it, it was the shows time. I do miss it, but it just wasn't enjoy able anymore. It had a great run. I still watch the early seasons on Netflix.

I used to LOVE Weeds- but after they moved out of Agrestic, it started to get too drawn out and the story lines kept getting recycled, and Nancy seemed to become way more selfish than she had been previously. I hate to say it, but I really started to have a hard time liking her, so I stopped watching during the last season. It's the perfect example of a show that lost its charm by going on for too many seasons.

I miss the Botwins! I really loved the way the series ended and was glad that they ended with a Rilo Kiley song. I just wish I could check in on them. It's sad when a series as good as this one just sort of falls apart at the end. It was the right time to end it and I am excited for Jenji's other projects such as Orange is the New Black.
