Last week, we learned that Showtime has become really close to sealing the deal on an eighth season for Weeds. Mary-Louise Parker’s recent love letter to Nancy Botwin, her character, can be read as either a send-off or a hope for more . . .

Well, here are five reasons why it should be the latter of the two.

1. No satisfying end, yet:

When season 7’s finale was on the way, I made a few predictions as to what would happen, and while several of them did come true, a big one did not. Nancy did not die; she did not go to jail; she did not lose her children. Quite the opposite, actually. She and her family entered a Utopia-esque little cottage in the country, intent on making a better situation for all involved. This is not end-like, not for Weeds. This is not satisfying as the end. The creators of Weeds are too clever to send us away hunky dory-style a la Entourage­. At worst, we can expect is something in the vein of The Sopranos . . . and that’s not what we got with season seven’s finale.

2. New rivalries have come along, obviously:

As with every season finale in Weeds history to-date, season seven’s brought along a new (well old, really) conflict. The man with the rifle pointed straight at Nancy in the end was obviously Peter Scottson’s son. There’s been enough zooming and comparing done around the web-o-sphere to confirm that fact. Peter’s death was early in the show, and I suspect there are a few demons of the past left in Nancy’s future. Oh, and Shane’s a secret cop now. Remember when he bit Peter’s kid in the karate tournament, leading to Nancy’s involvement with Peter? I predict there’ll be a rematch of some sorts between Shane and that kid worth exploring in season eight. I hope Shane bites him again . . . and then writes a curse-laden rap song about it.

3. Andy really needs a win:

Andy got his way, sort of, when he got to take part of the family to Copenhagen for a few years while Nancy was in the pen. It wasn’t enough to satisfy though because he came back to New York the second Nancy was released. As soon as he got there, he went back to being unsatisfied and thought a successful bike shop would fill his little unconquerable void, but that didn’t happen . . . Ultimately, it boils down to him being in love with Nancy, I think. He has been for years, and while that was more seriously explored in seasons five and six, the seventh season gave him pretty much the perfect woman for him to be with, and of course that didn’t work out . . . Andy needs to win out at some point with Nancy. I think he will . . . but that’ll only happen if we have another season or two of the show.

4. More Silas:

Hunter Parrish won’t be Peeta in The Hunger Games, which isn’t worth re-hashing here, so we need to see him somewhere. Right, ladies? I think that suffices for point four.

5. The machines!:

At the end of season seven, we saw what the biggest treat of the new cottage included – a new handy dandy laboratory for Silas, outfitted with fancy equipment and all set up for new business. Silas failed to prove himself a capable partner to Nancy, again, but all hope is not lost. Here’s a shiny new vehicle for success . . . We aren’t really expected to believe it just *poof* will be, right? I’d like to see where that leads the gang, wouldn’t you?

What about you, Weeds fans? What would be your reasons for wanting to see a season eight of the show?

Nickelodeon debuts action-packed ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ trailer at SDCC

The brand new trailer features tons of nods to the original '90s game show!

4:33 pm EDT, July 23, 2016

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, ’90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved ’90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more — they’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Legends of the Hidden Temple premieres on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2016.

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

Click full screen, turn up your volume, and get ready for this!

The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.


We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:


Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
