Weeds" is entering its eighth and final season on Showtime this week (Season 8 premieres Sunday, July 1 at 10 p.m. ET) and it’s certainly been a long ride for Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker) and co.

Perhaps too long? At one point, everybody on the HuffPost TV staff quit “Weeds.” Some sooner than others. Find out why — and when — we gave up on the Botwin crew and their zany adventures.

There are plenty of shows to be thankful for, but 2011 was also the year for some major TV turkeys.

You know what we’re talking about — those shows or televised events that are just too horrific for even our “worst” lists of the year.

We’ve picked our top turkeys, included proof of poultry, and ranked them on a gobble-meter scale of 1-10, 1 being the least offensive or surprising in terms of suckiness, and 10 being scream-at-your-TV-in-anger levels of suck that we hope we never have to endure again.

Take a look at our list, then chime in down in the comments with your own top picks for the bottom of the barrel.

Bet y’all can’t guess which one I wrote … :)

Silas gets involved in an underground model boxing competition. You had me at “model” and “underground.”

'Weeds' will do just about anything to get Hunter Parrish to take his shirt off.

In case you missed ‘Weeds’ last night: The return of Heylia James.

Hell no.

There is no such thing as too much Hunter Parrish in a bubble.

Many goodies for you today! First up: Video of Silas (Hunter Parrish) in his underwear and that giant bubble on ‘Weeds.’ You may recall I showed you guys that lovely image last week. He almost dies, but remains hot. Enjoy!

This arrived in my inbox today, courtesy of Showtime. It’s Hunter Parrish (as Silas on ‘Weeds) in his underwear in a giant plastic ball. You’re welcome.

Mary Louise Parker on her son’s love of Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s apparent love of weed and not turning down pot offered by fans.

I try to be gracious. I’m not gonna not take it.

Let’s be honest, many of Showtime’s programs can be boiled down to one commonality: they’re all about quirky women with secrets. This isn’t a complaint because they’re fabulous and lovable. So, which Showtime leading lady are you?
