Nurse Jackie: Season 6 (2014)



Critic Consensus: Nurse Jackie matures into a disturbing chronicle of insurmountable addiction as Edie Falco's tragic protagonist hits rock bottom, but the sixth season's commitment to the repetition of drug abuse may prove too monotonous for some viewers.

Tv Season Info

Season 6 begins with Jackie (Edie Falco) using drugs again, but she covers it up by attending NA meetings and regularly going to the gym. Unfortunately, the gym visits are a cover to score more pills that she gets from a locker-room towel girl. But Jackie isn't the only one using. Grace (Ruby Jerins), who now lives with her dad Kevin (Dominic Fumusa), secretly experiments with drugs and gets arrested for shoplifting. If that isn't enough to send Jackie over the edge, she is shocked to learn that Kevin is getting married, and that Frank (Adam Ferrara), who is unaware she is using again, wants to move in with her. One bright spot for Jackie is Antoinette (Julie White), an outspoken woman she meets at a 12-step meeting, who agrees to be Jackie's new sponsor.

Critic Reviews for Nurse Jackie Season 6

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

Repetition is death to a series, and it gets to a point when you start to wonder if Jackie is just the best liar in the world, or everyone else around her is just plain stupid.

Nurse Jackie is a bracing, fascinating character study that, so far, has rejected denial about addiction with as much vigor as Jackie has held onto it.

Falco is very good, always is, but her show has gotten tired.

Still this critic's favorite continuing American TV drama, Nurse Jackie is terrific

Dec 26, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

With season 6, Jackie crosses the line from a show about a woman struggling with a pill addiction to simply a show about an addict... Edie Falco makes the stakes scarily real.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Jackie's self-destructive roller coaster behavior, while true in spirit to the experience of many addicts, became stale years ago.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's got to be a psychic energy or something that Falco emits because everything about her performance is a red herring. She doesn't have to show a thing and she shows it all.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

With Nurse Jackie you do not have a heroine who is smarter, nicer and more emotionally evolved than you, but whose behavior makes you feel so much better about yourself.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

No show nails down addiction better than "Nurse Jackie," where the ugliness, narcissism and selfishness of the disease is on open - and unapologetic - display.

Top Critic

The overall tone of the show has been darker and more complex, while the characters have progressed and developed in new and interesting ways.
