Lionsgate Films have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of the eighth and final season of Showtime's original series Weeds. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on February 12th.
Headlined by Mary-Louise Parker in her Golden Globe-winning role, Weeds also stars a hilarious ensemble cast including Kevin Nealon (TV's Saturday Night Live), Justin Kirk (TV's Animal Practice), Hunter Parrish (It's Complicated), Alexander Gould (Finding Nemo) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (TV's Revenge). The celebrated series lit up the ratings during its final season, averaging 3.2 million viewers an episode across all platforms. The final chapter in the Botwins' crazy outrageous life comes full circle ending on a high note.
The last time we saw Nancy (Parker) and the Botwins, it was through the scope of a hit man's rifle. Nancy had sprung from the joint and gone to New York City, where she made a fresh start doing what she does best - selling pot and making enemies. Now everyone's wondering who put out the hit...and who got smoked.

I agree with Proghog. Season 3 was the perfect end to the show, and yet, we ended up with another five. All increasingly more terrible than the last. But, Mary Louise Parker makes it at least tolerable when it's not extraordinarily frustrating and completely devoid of humor.
