Critic Reviews for Nurse Jackie Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

Nurse Jackie is also a television show, a gore-ified, God-inflected sitcom/drama, and a very good one. Edie Falco is magnificent. Did I just write that? Of course she is. Edie Falco and magnificence are indivisible.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall, what you see is what you get: good performances, uneven show.

Mar 22, 2010 | Full Review…

There's plenty on the buffet for both comedy and tragedy. The question is which will explode first, and either way, we probably can't lose.

Mar 22, 2010 | Full Review…

Not consistently funny, perhaps, but when Best and/or Falco are on screen, the angels sing. Both are remarkable.

The second season of Nurse Jackie is even more gripping than the first, as Jackie's layers are slowly peeled away and her past and present sins shadow her.

Dec 26, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Edie Falco's strong acting spine supports a superb ensemble in Showtime's Nurse Jackie.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Nice to see that the show has found a proper use for Gloria Akalitus. She was wasted as an awkward comic foil last season. Now, she brings a sense of lightness to her scenes, but also of proper professionalist.

Dec 21, 2018 | Rating: 4.4/5 | Full Review…

An often-amusing diversion and good acting showcase for Edie Falco that loves to spin plates without ever thinking about what will happen when they fall.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Not only is Falco irresistible as the no-nonsense, occasionally aggressive, wildly avoidant woman whom we haven't come close to understanding yet, but the rest of this clown show bounces along with breathtaking dynamism.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

As stale and shoddy as the drama is in this dramedy, the light comedy of it is still pretty fresh. Both Merritt Weaver and Peter Facinelli, as Zooey and Coop, respectively, are nimble comic players, and any scene featuring either of them is fun to watch.
