Is There Any Hope for <i>Weeds</i> Season 8?

I think I was so angry after watching the Season 7 finale of Weeds that I missed a few plot points that set up this season... or maybe I hated them so much, I wanted to just reimagine them.

Yes, the eighth and final installment followed the same pattern every season before it did -- immediate chaos following the previous finale, a new place, relative stability for the gang, utter batshit insanity and then the illusion of character development that eventually reveals itself as a temporary mood change -- but the drama in Old Sandwich was fun. I really enjoyed the stuff with Tim Scottson, Jill and Andy turned out to have a lot of believable chemistry, the Earth didn't collapse onto Silas, Nancy didn't totally ruin everything and Shane... well, Shane had that cute girlfriend and some fun with crooked cops. Doug wasn't even in it that much. Really, not bad for this show!
