  • Nurse Jackie

    CREATOR: Liz Brixius, Evan Dunsky, Linda Wallem
    CAST: Edie Falco Merritt Wever Paul Schulze

    After The Soprano’s, Edie Falco pledged to stay far away from anything mob related. Luckily, she did. As a pill-popping nurse that is, battling her addiction and the fights that need to be fought being a member of a middle class family. Drama and comedy are a tough mix to work out; Nurse Jackie brilliantly succeeds in keeping the genres well balanced. Falco’s character, Jackie, is an outstanding portrait of a harsh, deceptive and fearful person – flanked by the lovely Zoey (Merrit Weve) the chemistry between all actors is a delight. The show’s been thrown an awful lot of prices and awards, and rightfully so. Nurse Jackie is fun, unpredictable, and best of all, shows what a great actress Edie Falco is. Read more
