Watching Jackie go back on the drugs, lying to her support group as well as her current better-than-she-deserves cop boyfriend Frank (Adam Ferrara), you can't help but get a dispiriting feeling of been-there, snorted-that. Bright spots include Emmy winner Merritt Wever as the irrepressible nurse Zoey.... and the arrival of the terrific Julie White.
At one time, it was possible to enjoy Nurse Jackie even for viewers who were over Jackie's drama because the supporting cast was so much fun. There's something less entertaining about them these days, too. Their plots sometimes feel like a stretch, as if the writers are grasping for stories for them.
