    GENTLY BEGUILING, WITH MANY CHUCKLES, 17 Oct 2011

    At the NY hospital, Nurse Jackie continues bending the rules to ensure patients receive the treatment deserved. Sadly she still secretly needs drugs to get through the day, this an increasing problem. How long before others find out?

    Wry humour, which proves enormously appealing – thanks to fine scripts and superbly etched characters. Again Edie Falco shines as Jackie, her “less is more” style of acting a delight to behold – so much conveyed with the briefest comment, the slightest gesture. The whole cast is a joy in different ways – not least formidable administrator Gloria, best friend O’Hara, scatty Zoey, self-adoring Dr. Cooper (now addicted to Twitter and only too happy to be the face on the hospital’s publicity posters – “IF LOOKS COULD CURE”). Likeable too is Jackie’s family – daughter Grace seriously weird, goodnatured husband destined to have his patience tried.

    12 episodes of about 25 minutes. Interesting bonuses about O’Hara and Cooper. A gag reel. Some may wish the commentaries to be more focussed, especially when four are contributing.

    The series suffered from unhelpful scheduling, no doubt on so late because of the language. It deserves to be better known. Spared the frenetic, soapy aspects of some medical shows, this one has a charm and concerns people we grow to care about.

    Recommended.

    Yet another brilliant installment from Edie Falco as Nurse Jackie – still maging to juggle work, home and extra marital affairs beautifully – looking forward to viewing the third series
