    Falco's performance never loses a weary, trudging toughness and, at the core two hard kernels of anger and sorrow. [16 Apr 2012, p.50]

    Falco, Eve Best (Ellie O'Hara) and Anna Deavere Smith (Gloria Akalitus) are flawless, and... very amusing.

    Nurse Jackie season 4 is all consequences, all the time--and is much, much more satisfying overall as a result.

    The people around Jackie made me stick with this show even when its main storyline was going nowhere, but now that it's committed to really engaging with its title character, it's become appointment TV for me again.

    Putting Jackie in rehab actually works out well comedically, too, because she's surrounded by a new batch of odd characters to bounce off.

    Nurse Jackie's pleasures lie in the smaller moments and interactions that are buried in a morass of contrived narrative threads.

    Season 4 of Nurse Jackie is easily the best yet. The storyline is finally moving forward, and redemption is coming. Falco's acting is better than it's ever been. Collapse
