Critic Reviews for Nurse Jackie Season 4

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

Change was long overdue, but had too many parameters been tweaked? The answer is: absolutely not. It was just what the show needed.

Top Critic

For the first time since season one of the series, there's a sense of uncertainty about what's going to happen to Jackie.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

We're closing in on the point when Edie Falco will be known as much for playing Nurse Jackie as she is for playing Carmela Soprano.

Cranky, caustic Nurse Jackie is also the funniest series on Showtime.

The season four premiere shook up everyone's worlds, not just Jackie's, instantly re-energizing a show that had grown rather stagnant.

Dec 26, 2018 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

Regardless of how it turns out, the writers/creators of Nurse Jackie should be applauded for stepping outside of their comfort zone.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Instantly Nurse Jackie's entire premise is blown, all bets are off, anything can happen... What unfolds over this season's story arc is unpredictable and as ambitious as anything that's come before it.

Dec 26, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Nurse Jackie's fourth season is entertaining and surprisingly sweet.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This new-found accountability marks a significant shift in the show, and hopefully it will bring with it a brilliant second act for the series.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

There's no telling what accountability will do for Jackie, but signs are promising that it'll be good for the show.
