Weeds springs back up for eighth and final season

If you’ve been keeping up with Weeds for all seven seasons, congratulations, you’re a better fan than I. The Toronto Star asked me to weigh in on the eighth and final season premiere, which just aired in Canada last Tuesday.
A lot had gone on since I’d last visited Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) and her suburban drug posse. The seventh season ended with a gun shot, and the eighth picks up with Botwin nicked in the noggin. The dramatic turn just means more black comedy in this saucy series, which seems revitalized now that the deadline is near.
If you’re looking for Weeds, and you have to look for it, you’ll find it Tuesday nights at 11:15 p.m. ET/PT in Canada on IFC.
