It's amazing how good the quality of this series is still at season 8. The authors manage to always find new themes, twists and just the right measure of humour.
We follow our favourite characters as their lives unfold, they encounter new friends and enemies, and their relationships become more complex. And of course there's a major cliffhanger, which has become a thrilling tradition in this series.
The only downside (and the reason for one less star) is that each DVD comes with a car commercial before the menu, which can't be easily skipped. In addition to the notorious "don't copy" intro commercial. IMHO, this is an insult to the people who buy DVDs for good money so they can skip commercials on TV and enjoy good quality. If the customer paid for the DVD, she/he shouldn't be burdened by yet another commercial, especially when it's the same over and over again.
