Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

7 July 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

The fifth season of Nurse Jackie is a somewhat unique spin in the world of TV series, because the premise of the show is turned upside-down. While Edie Falco has spent four seasons winning critical acclaim as titular, drug-addicted nurse who has to find a way to make all the facets of her life work, the writers correctly determined that it was time that the gimmick made some new movies. Thus, the fifth season has Jackie sober, and quickly approaching the one-year anniversary of her sobriety.

With her marriage falling apart, her job resting on a very precarious perch, and her ability to effectively don a parental role, Jackie has an entirely new set of problems to manage, and coping isn’t necessarily something she’s great at… depending on how you mean that.

Of course, when your personal life is in a shambles, your »

‘Nurse Jackie’ Season 6 Finale Recap: Could Things Get Any Worse for Jackie?

29 June 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warning: Spoilers For “Nurse Jackie” Season Six Finale Below

The dedicated nurse and hardcore drug addict has hit rock bottom (we can only hope it doesn’t get worse) in tonight’s sixth season finale of “Showtime’s” touted series, for which Edie Falco won the 2010 Emmy for best actress in a comedy.  With the exception of maybe “Shameless” (another Showtime commodity), no show nails down addiction better than “Nurse Jackie,” where the ugliness, narcissism and selfishness of the disease is on open — and unapologetic — display.

To review: Jackie’s “secret” at-home do-it-yourself detox and subsequent sobriety lasted all of a minute, she tricked her AA sponsor into falling off the wagon and checked her into rehab, and got kicked out of ex-husband Kevin’s wedding for bringing her drug dealer as a date.  Now she’s back at work, where she nearly killed a diabetic patient by administering the wrong dosage of insulin, »

Nurse Jackie Renewed for 7th Season

31 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Showtime has renewed Nurse Jackie for a seventh season, the network announced today. Jackie's sixth season starts April 13, so this is a pretty early renewal by Showtime standards. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peter Facinelli will not be a regular on season seven, which is probably a good thing, since his character, Dr. Cooper, is the worst, both in the sense that all the characters dislike him and also the fact that his presence does not help the story arc of the show. There's a lot to love about Nurse Jackie, namely Edie Falco Jackie, Merritt Wever's fantastic Zoey, and Adam Ferrara as Jackie's down-to-earth cop boyfriend. But then the show goes to loopy town with Anna Deavere Smith's Dr. Akalitus and Facinelli's Coop, and it's like a humanely explored story about a recovering addict is suddenly a weird slapstick comedy about morons. »
