Some favorite faces will make memorable appearances and remind critics and fans alike of the long-running comedy series' best jaw-dropping, laugh-out-loud moments and colorful guest stars. The final episodes find the Botwins (& Doug!) at the crossroads – will a fateful trip hold the answers to all their problems? It's sure to be one unforgettable last toke in honor of television's favorite pot-dealing family and the eight-year high they've given viewers worldwide.
Since its debut on August 7, 2005, viewers have watched and marveled as Nancy Botwin (series star Mary-Louise Parker in her Golden Globe Award-winning role) progressed from a suburban widow who turned to selling dime bags to make ends meet for her family to a full-fledged marijuana queenpin. She was aided by brother-in-law Andy (Justin Kirk) to help raise her sons Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould) - along with fellow Agrestic neighbor Doug (Kevin Nealon) in constant tow. Her narcissistic, danger-junkie antics paved the way for future sympathetic yet highly flawed anti-heroes who have since become standard television fare. The show and its many signature moments (including Nancy setting Agrestic ablaze, Shane's croquet mallet-bludgeoning, Andy's dog-eaten toes and self-gratification speech, the Armenian mafia Mexican stand-off, etc.) generated critical acclaim, a legion of fans and watercooler buzz for their sheer outrageousness.
