Nurse Jackie: Season 7 Reviews

December 27, 2018
Edie Falco's deliciously duplicitous performance fueled the show right through to its unforgettable conclusion.
December 27, 2018
Nurse Jackie has always been about telling its story its own way - and demonstrating that drug addiction is a vile disease that can afflict the best and brightest among us.
December 27, 2018
Heartbreaking. Because despite its complications, addiction is sad. And I think that's the only certain thing left to feel.
December 27, 2018
[The] refusal to soften Jackie, that resistance to bend towards likability, is the show's most impressive feat.
December 27, 2018
Great nurse. Flawed human being, and an irreparable one. That's also what made her real, and relatable, and what Falco brought so fully to the role -- that gnawing sense of self-doubt, and self-reproof, which spilled over into acts of self-destruction.
December 27, 2018
In its last season, Nurse Jackie lost the thread of some of its stories and characters, and the finale reflected that: like the whole season before it, it didn't feel necessary, momentous or final.
December 27, 2018
Having co-starred in the most ambiguously concluded TV show in history (HBO's "The Sopranos"), Falco certainly deserves the cleanest ending Jackie can get, and the first eight or nine episodes of this season suggest a satisfying and authentic outcome.
December 27, 2018
Thanks to strong writing and a fully realized supporting cast, viewers learn more and more about Jackie and her demons as the series unfolds.

The cast, as usual, is peerless, with Falco, Wever, Schulze, and Smith being especially memorable.

Anyone who has dealt with or knows someone that has struggled with addition and the self-delusion that comes with it will likely tell you, that sense of repeating the same beats again and again is not too far off the mark.

The Showtime drama-with-comedic-elements has been among the finest, most original, and most uncompromising series on TV since 2009.

Can this character find redemption before the final curtain? It won't be easy.
April 20, 2015
Even if your TV-watching doesn't permit you to watch it in real time, Nurse Jackie is really worth keeping up with -- seeing through to the very end.
April 13, 2015
Viewers get 10 episodes to see if Brixius is right, watching the most realistic addict on TV try to beat the odds - and her illness - one more time.
April 13, 2015
We know she's a great nurse. Now we may learn whether she can be even adequate at everything else.

Characters come and go, the humor is silly and dark, and at the show's center remains an authentically great performance by Edie Falco.
