Weeds is officially coming to an end. EW.com announced that the series upcoming eighth season will be its last. Series creator Jenji Kohan says, “I’m so proud of what we do here and that it’s about a strong woman lead who’s really flawed. We get to do comedy right up against drama, which a lot of shows don’t get the opportunity to do.” The final season will quickly resolve this year’s assassination attempt cliffhanger, and fans can expect a time jump and a return to the suburbs. Beyond that, Kohan hasn’t yet decided how to conclude Nancy’s tale. “We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves,” she says.
Every so often a film comes across my desk at ye olde Biff Bam Pop headquarters that I’m completely unaware of. Such was the case with the animated French film, The Prodigies, which hit DVD this past Tuesday. Based on a novel by French writer Bernard Lenteric, it’s the story of five brilliant and powerful teens with psychic powers who band together and seek revenge after one of their own is attacked. In the meantime, their would-be mentor who shares their skills contemplates joining with them. The film is clever and violent and definitely not something you’d see coming out of Disney.
But is it any good? Find out after the jump!
