Weeds > Weeds Series Finale Review: Anything But a High Note > Comments Page 2
WTF? The ending, as was the whole series, was nothing short of magnificent. I cried through the whole hour. I started the previous episode when Andy and Nancy made love on someone's lawn, and knew that the ending was gonna be tough. 5 years in the future or so, the characters I missed were Celia and Isabelle, actually I wanted everyone to come back. They were all so damn much fun! Fuck, I wanted Esteban to come back! But Silas' telling Nancy that she coulda been better and Shane showing that even being the momma's-boy wasn't enough to protect him from shit (Nancy says to him "I'm really fond of you"! WTF! But big time!) And Nancy's screaming at the end of the previous episode when Andy walked away just reverberated thru this whole final episode. I'm exhausted and don;t know what to do with the rest of my life. Thank you so much, Jenji! And I liked the almost invisible iphones! Every part of it was so well done! It really wrapped up well a pretty chaotic life and pretty chaotic situatio
The best show i ever watched never missed a episode an i just cried so hard watching the last episode thank you for the great show an thank you to the writers and all the producers thank you guys soo much nancy reminds me of my mother an wished the show could continue for ever but good things never last forever but atleast they gave us 8 season's right lol p.s fuck show time for not giving a longer contract
Really...you think only the finale sucked??? Honestly...you must have watched season 1 on repeat for the last few years if you think it just went bad at the end. This show divorced reality and sucked it dry for alimony for 6+ years...season 1 was truly good...funny, quirky and felt original.
It slowly started to fall apart, until Nancy turned it a total slut who just slept or married her way out of EVERY situation...many shows have ups and downs and there is always the chance to pull it back but that never happened with Weeds...it just got worse and worse until it was ultimately cancelled.
The fact that only 10,000 people clicked like on the facebook "save weeds" page tells the story...thats 10,000 globally!!
My on demand only showed Part One, so what happened to Part Two or the rest of the show. I thought it was an hour long end of season finale. What did I miss?
The ending should have been when she went to prison...
I'd first of all like to point out that this show was cancelled by the tv station kohen just had to roll with the punches
If this show had to end in anyway this was the best way
What did everyone expect for Nancy to drive off into the sunrise throwing free weed out her car windows being chased by Mexicans???
I am A huge fan of this show and although extremely saddened at the fact of it coming to an end I was quiet pleased.
This show always left us guessing what her next move was and it has certainly done this again in the finale.
What a better way to end it seeing everyone passing a friendly joint around to say goodbye.
The real climax was in the prior episode--literally. This episode was merely epilogue--so it really doesn't "all go out the window." I thought it wound up many stories elegantly. Sorry it didn't end in a fairy tale for the "happy-ending crowd." It really was a very dark comedy after all--gee, who'dathunk...
It wasn't a great finale. I always liked Celia and there was no mention of her, the story lines with Shane and Doug were really poorly done. I liked the way things turned out with Andy and Nancy though, he finally grew some and won't end up dead. ;) The very final scene was a great moment though and the right characters were there for that.
yes, true it was lazy writing (and needlessly sappy at a couple moments that made me cringe), however, with the direction the show has been going, i do not think it would have been any better if it had not jumped ahead in time; although i was caught off guard, that didn't bother me too much. overall (again, given the way the last few seasons have gone) i thought it was alright and enjoyed watching it enough to pay attention and laugh a few times. of course, if they had ended it 3 seasons ago, it wouldn't have lost it's pizazz.....but oh well. i do like the characters of this show, especially shane and andy, regardless of a few unnatural developments in the past few seasons. and i will ALWAYS love the first 3 seasons a lot!
It was a very disappointing end, but over this season I've grown to expect that ... none of the flair of earlier seasons. Even Doug's situation wasn't funny - just plain absurd. And, like 99.9% of episodes, we again ended with Nancy and a dopey look on her face.
So, roll on Breaking Bad.
I feel cheated and robbed. This was one of the best shows on tv and they sold out in the last season. They should have ended last year and spared us this shi**y ending. I agree with Matt - the epitome of lazy writing.
What we have missed throughout the last 8 years is the connection of what this show is truly about. We have been bombarded with such dramatic events of Nancy involved with men, drugs, family, etc. that we forget what this show was truly about. A family attempting to overcome one of the most traumatic events that could possibly occur to them in the untimely death of the father, who was portrayed as both a caretaker emotionally and financially within the family. I think the final episode showcased beautifully that the entire series has been every characters direct attempt at trying to figure out their own idea of what happiness is after enduring said event. "Happiness" is a reoccuring word throughout the episode, and every time it is muttered, it is noticed that Nancy seems to be the only one who has not found it. But during the final smoke scene, the camera pans in on Nancy's face with a crooked smile. I believe that her happiness is essentially seeing every one that she loves around he
Although her life was building up to this, it was sad that Nancy was rejected by everyonee. I think it should have ended ambiguously with the possibility that she killed herself. As it was, there was no clue how she was going to go on without having anyone to control, let alone love. It ended with a dull thud for me. No hope and no desperation, either. Also, I think they could have ended without skipping ahead so many years and giving every character (EXCEPT CELIA) completely different lives from what they'd developed in the storyline. Bad writer, to develop a practically non-existent character (Doug's son) for this episode and not even mention Celia, who was a major force for more than half the show's run.
that was everything but a review... if you never liked the show why you even bother to write about it ?
I could agree more with this article, not to be too cliche like this final episode of the show but the writers really "Jumped the Shark" on this one. For-shame.
shite wish i hadnt watched it
The season finale showed that Nancy was paying for her sins. None of the family was going to let her run their lives and the world didn't revolve around her anymore. Silas said it best when he said "It's not about you." As hard as it was to watch Nancy see her whole family move on, finally live their own lives, and have the way she personally screwed up each of her family members put into perspective, it was still bittersweet because Nancy needed to live with the outcome from her decisions, yet still had the unsaid support of all who came together for one last puff as a family in the snow. The season finale was perfect in its own way. The Weeds way. Nothing has ever gone to plan with this family, not one will have their perfect ending, they all still have their issues. But the end of the series still left you with hope for Nancy...
I was a big weeds fan, but they totally cheated us all with this series finale going so far in time and trying to jam everything together like that with the in believable storyline,I myself could have written a better ending and where the hell was Celia?! I liked her they could hand brought her back for the finale she was funny always trying to keep up with Nancy but getting into a mess.. Two thumbs down for the finale!!!
I really liked the final episode, as with the series itself it continued that ever-evolving plot-line with silliness combined with drama. Its an interesting twist to show everyone so far down-the-line. I will admit there were moments I was feeling lost in some ways as so many years had passed. Weeds had some of the best SEASON endings of any show and if held up to those, yes it was a disappointment. I did like how not everything finished with sunshine and roses. I guess I liked the episode because it was bittersweet, especially at the end. We'll miss those characters and having them ponder their futures or moments on the steps was a nice finish.
The final episode let down is that Nancy and Andy have spent years apart and do not end up together. Andy did not stay to help raise Stevie; the Rabbi did. Disapointing. Andy was the only reason that Nancy could breath. Taking care of Nancy was the only reason for Andy to keep on breathing. Whatever toxins were part of the relationship, the people that were the most important to them were the same people. I would have liked the see the 'final four' still connected at the hip 10 years later, and had the season wrapped up with that not changing. The funniest and most touching scenes were between some combination of those four people. It was sad to see them part ways.
Ps: I did read a few comments that dissed Doug's son and the story line, remember though Doug's son was who she started to sell weed for way back in season 1. That scene with them in the kitchen to me was the only worthy scene of the finale. It reflected a lot of where she came from. Just my thoughts. Otherwise I agree it was lacking! Bad ending!
Did they seriously leave Nancy with ANOTHER dead husband??!!! That brings the total to FOUR. Juda, The DEA agent Scotson (sp?), Estaban and now the Rabi. Omg. I couldn't even believe they did that. No wonder they couldn't hook her and Andy up, he would have been dead for the series finale. I agree with everyone else on here, just a sloppy bad job closing the show. I have to say these last few seasons have been a train wreck. For me the best ending was Season 6 and they should have stopped there.
thrown off by the jump into the future, I feel this was total cop-out and a waste of a season.. its over and I am unsatisfied thinking that the writers and creator, Janji Kohan could have done better. In reality, they could not have done another season, especially after watching the past 6 seasons. I feel like they gave up after season 2...and so did I and a lot of others. Yet we watch, hoping it will get better. So will I. Wanting that spark I felt in the beginning. Wanting to catch that grizzly TV show which enthralls us and makes us want more. In that Weeds succeed.
Bleh..mush pablum,unfocused,a complete sellout. Too bad........having said that..a FANTASTIC series. One bad episode in 8 years
like the review i am a long time viewer of Weeds and followed it from season 1! this is just a quick way of ending the show .. .really you expect me to swallow that?????? total bulllshit!
