Falco -- as always -- remains one of TV's bright shining lights, but her Nurse Jackie suddenly feels like a work in progress.

It's honest, credible, trustworthy storytelling.

While Falco's performance remains reason enough for fans to stick around, there's cause for concern about where her character is headed.

April 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Overall, it's a mixed bag as Nurse Jackie settles into what will surely be its latter years without its creators at the helm.

April 12, 2013 | Full Review…

Recovery won't be easy, but so far it's an enjoyably bumpy ride.

April 12, 2013 | Full Review…

The high level of on-screen talent can't disguise the fact that Nurse Jackie, which seemed poised to take a chance on reinventing itself, has instead settled for trying to reanimate the discarded husk of the show it had grown out of.
