Editorial Reviews

NURSE JACKIE returns for a fifth season with Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton, a role that has earned Falco her third consecutive Primetime Emmy(R) nomination. After leaving rehab early, Jackie finds sobriety and relative happiness -- but that is the calm before the storm. With her marriage coming to an end, a careless accident sends Jackie to her own All Saints Hospital for emergency care. While recovering, she meets NYC policeman Frank Verelli (Adam Ferrera), whose flirtatious advances may lead Jackie into uncharted territory: dating. Stepping out of her usual comfort zone, challenged by new colleagues, Jackie faces her one-year sobriety anniversary.

I look forward to this show every season and I am never disappointed. I have only one criticism, the plot lines from last season are too blithely wrapped up in the premier episode. Dr. O'Hara played so well by Eve Best leaves rather abruptly, and I would have loved to see Jackie and Zoey (Emmy winning Merritt Ever) play out longer as roomates, she and Edie Falco as Jackie have a priceless dynamic with Falco's straight man to Merritt's zaniness. But that said both new and old characters provide great comedy. It is hard to picture comedy amongst the chaos and tragedy of an urban emergency room but, having worked in one myself it is completely possible. Another new character is a self centered and vacuous Dr. Carrie Roman who meets her match in equally vain golden boy Dr. Cooper. Jackie is well Jackie, even after giving up the OxyContin, adderal, and Percocet, she is as blunt and irritable as ever. She has a lot to be annoyed about a divorce and custody battle, two daughters acting out, and an unexpected new romance. But she faces everything as usual head on and in her own way. And there is plenty of heart with she and the staff of All Saints hospital saving lives and trying to solve the problems of their patients every day.

Some shows falls apart after a few seasons. In fact many studios fire the original
script writers once the show is successful to save money, knowing that fans will
watch the final one or two seasons out of loyalty and habit. Lucky for us Nurse Jackie
is still original, meaningful, complex, beautifully acted, and funny as all get out. Great season!

One thing about recovering addicts, they are usually not very much fun that first year of sobriety and this is true about season five of Nurse Jackie, not very much fun. If I had to hear one more time about her sobriety and the fact she is a recovering addict my head would explode.

There were other problems with season five. First and foremost was the loss of her best friend O'Hara, played by Eve Best, who has left NYC to be able to be with her new baby year round in the U.K. It was a big loss as she was an integral part of the ensemble. Next, Jackie finds a new boyfriend who is actually more boring than her ex-husband and not nearly as good-looking. He comes across as a know-it-all and they don't seem to have the right chemistry. We also have a new woman doctor in the ER who can't act and perform medicine at the same time.

I sadly miss the Jackie who snuck pain medication, led a double life, cheated on her husband, but was quick, intelligent and witty with all her patients. This season her personality is lacking its usual vitality and she has become someone the old Jackie would dislike, a whiner and a cranky one at that.

On the good side, Zoey, played to perfection by Merritt Wever, just gets better with every season and this one is no exception, and the other regulars Eddie, Cooper, Thor, and Gloria are back and still as eccentric and well played as past seasons. I still enjoyed the show. It had its moments but they were just fewer and farther in-between then past seasons. Jackie is a great character and Edie Falco does a wonderful job portraying her. I believe that with a bit of work on the story-lines, some snappier dialogue and, some interesting developments that occurred late in the season, I have high hopes for a better season six.

What exactly is so mesmerizing?
The acting, characterization, character development, plot lines, depth, and sweetness. Yes, amidst the emotional rubble is a goldmine of kindness and true connection.
If that weren't enough, the sheer humanity of this show will win you over.

This used to be a funny show and it still has some moments, but the development that happened in the last season just seems to be tired. While there are some amusing episodes, there's one serious drains on the show.

One of the worst drains is Doctor Roman. The actress is boring, but even worse her story is terrible. She's a dangerously incompetent doctor who manages to use sex as a way of getting ahead. While this is semi-realistic, it's hard to believe that someone would get through college and medical school into a fairly competitive residency by sex appeal alone. The story is an ugly sexist story and the character is never funny. She just shows up and gets everyone angry and then disappears.

The rest of the show is still ok, but it's treading water on old tropes.

This show is so well-written and well-acted that by the end of each episode my husband and I are always groaning in unison, "They go by so fast!" Edie Falco as Jackie manages to convey all of the moving parts of this complex character. She is funny, tough, vulnerable, exasperating, and the consummate professional in her work. In case you've never seen the show, she plays a nurse who happens to also be a drug addict. Having watched all five seasons I can say that the show hit the ground running from the get-go and is just as engrossing by the end of the fifth season. And it's an ensemble cast of characters, all of whom are equally rich and nuanced. If four-letter words greatly offend you, you should probably be warned that there are lots of them - and usually they bother me, too. But somehow, in the context of this show, they just seem natural. (I can't explain that one.) Anna Deveare Smith is incredible as Akalytis, but it's not fair to single her out without giving the same kudos to all of the main characters. Excellent show!
