Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)
Mary Louise Parker, Bruce Willis
Apparently Bruce Willis isn't a huge fan of promoting his work.
Willis and his Red 2 co-star Mary-Louise Parker recently sat down with London's Magic 105.4 to be interviewed about the action sequel, and to say the conversation was awkward would be an understatement.
Apparently Alec Baldwin isn't the only actor who wants to quit show business.
Mary Louise Parker says she wants to stop acting thanks in small part to all those mean online haters. "I'm not really that...
The Botwins — if we can still call them that — said farewell Sunday, with a Weeds series finale that a stoner might describe as... a total bummer, man.
For those who have stayed with Weeds over its eight ever-morphing seasons, it was a nice nugget of nostalgia to hear the original version of "Little Boxes" before the final hour. From there, we flashed eight-odd years into the future, as noted by Stevie's impending Bar Mitzvah. The finale featured several fun, but too-brief cameos from former cast members who breezed in and out as we stumbled toward the main question we hoped this finale might answer: Has Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) learned from her mistakes? And if so, where does she go from here?
Read on to find out where Nancy — and everyone else — ended up:
Guillermo is back!
Guillermo Diaz is set to reprise his role as Guillermo Garcia Gómez in the final three episodes of Weeds, beginning with the 100th episode on Sunday, Sept. 9, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Weeds' Mary-Louise Parker on the series finale: "I cried when I read it"
American Pie alum Natasha Lyonne has been booked for the hour-long series finale of Weeds, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lyonne will play a woman named...
For a half-hour comedy, the mood on the final panel for Weeds at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews Monday was surprisingly somber as creator Jenji Kohan and the cast, particularly star Mary-Louise Parker, reflected on the last eight seasons. "I'm just proud of [Kohan] and everybody, and sad," said Parker, who said she didn't want to come to the panel. "All things have to end. I'm just proud of all of us. I think [Kohan] just made something amazing...
Mary-Louise Parker, Laura Linney
Showtime finished its 2011-2012 season with nearly 22 million subscribers and 22 Emmy nominations, with five of those in the four leading acting categories. Much of that honor goes to freshman drama Homeland, which is the most-nominated series for the network.
After sneak-previewing trailers for two upcoming series -- Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan -- David Nevins, Showtime's president of entertainment addressed this season's farewells to The Big C and Weeds and teased what's coming up for Dexter and Homeland, both of which will return on Sept. 30.
Nancy Botwin's past finally caught up to her.
The matriarch of one of the most dysfunctional families on TV kicked off the eighth and final season of Weeds on the ground, covered in blood, having been shot in the head. There's no way the Showtime series would kill off star Mary-Louise Parker — not yet, at least — but it raises the question: Who would want to kill Nancy?
Weeds to end after upcoming season
Well, I mean, who wouldn't really, right? Was it...
Like a particularly stubborn strain of kudzu, Weeds is one of those shows that seemed as if it would never go away. I bailed nearly two seasons ago, when it had drifted so far away from the subversive suburban satire of its original premise that I couldn't tell — or care — where it was heading. Weeds was a very significant show in rebranding Showtime as a serious competitor to HBO, but whatever they've been smoking lately, the fun was no longer contagious...
