Dr. Eleanor O'Hara
Has an ongoing problem -- and I'm not talking about a drug addiction. Edie Falco continues to live up to her Emmy win in the title role, but the rest of the cast just doesn't have enough to do
Comedy or drama? Drama or comedy? Nurse Jackie continues to have it both ways in the third season, which is certainly a smart strategy.
It confirms that the best comedy is often rooted in things that are not funny at all, but make people act in funny ways.
A tonal hybrid; as dire and dramatic as Jackie's situation may be, the episodes consistently veer into sweetly absurdist humor.
Nurse Jackie exemplifies the stuck-in-neutral, idea-over-execution problems that ultimately plague most Showtime series... It's a show that has stubbornly refused to -- or been unable to -- evolve.
The writing is strong but everything that truly works about "Nurse Jackie" comes back to the work by Mrs. Falco. She's stunningly good.
Although Nurse Jackie's third season isn't quite as strong as it has been in the past and would benefit from a deeper analysis of Jackie's personality, its many good performances and its shrewd blend of comedy and drama make it worth watching.
If there was any criticism I had of the first two seasons of Nurse Jackie, it was the fact that Jackie basically was getting away with murder... This season it looks as though it's going to unravel.
Falco is terrific in the part but the entire cast is great, too, especially Merritt Wever and Anna Deavere Smith, who've created unforgettable, funny and unique characters.
Lets Merritt Wever add a little carnal grit to a performance that retains the random, floating charm of a kid's balloon.
"Jackie is going to do what Jackie is going to do" doesn't leave much room for character growth, which makes the show feel like its treading water at times. Fortunately, Merritt Wever and Peter Facinelli are around to bring the funny.
