Anyone watching Nurse Jackie this season? SEASON SPOILERS

BEWARE - SPOILERS might be in this thread. I didn't know how to edit the thread title.



I'm surprised that there aren't any threads yet.

Jackie is doing her thing and really trying! I'm not liking the situation with her Brit MD friend. I'd like her to stick around.

Interesting developments with her dating........

yes, and loving every minute of it.

missing o'hara, worried about akalitus' forgetfulness, can't wait for cruz's return next week.

i admit the season opener was a little disappointing, though. starting with cruz gone, eddie and jackie rehired, and akalitus back in charge was reminiscent of dallas dreaming away a season.

and only a mention of the union involved restoring jackie? they could've done better.

Yes! Totally agree with all of your points. O'Hara gone =
And, yes, things were 'tidied up' a little too neatly.

I didn't know Cruz was coming back though. Will be interesting to see where they take all of this. I want it to remain fresh, yet keep the good characters and maximize their parts!

I'm still watching and enjoying the show. Oops, just realized this isn't a spoiler thread - nothing major here...just notes about some changes in new season.

Spoiler:
Blonde doc - holy crap, Batman! I wonder where that whole thing will end up. How could she hide her stoopid enough to be hired as an actual doctor? Ok, I get it but still...

On a superficial note, glad Jackie grew her hair out. Didn't like the uber-short hair. Last season it was a little longer and now longer still. yay (I'm easily entertained)

Interesting how pharmacist guy seems to have fallen for her and now she has a potential love interest in the new cop guy. Ex-husband a total dick.

Come on, people! If you want to discuss a show, start an actual season or episode thread. Creating these types of threads just confuses things.

Sorry...thought we had created a thread for this season. I guess we can add spoilers to the top.

Calm down, it's only a tv discussion forum..

Not a problem I don't get too crazy about spoilers, really. And, if it was in the the previews, it's not 'really' a spoiler...Well, not if you're currently watching the show, anyway!

Perhaps you need to follow your own suggestion. My post was only advice, after all. No need to start making bad assumptions about someone's emotional state for no good reason.

If you want to discuss this season of Nurse Jackie, why not create a new thread with the title "Nurse Jackie Season 5 (spoilers)" ?

Or just change the title of this thread.

Nurse Jackie Season 5 all season (spoilers)

While they didn't follow through entirely with last season's total reboot, there are a lot of interesting threads this season:
Akalitus is getting Alzheimer's (I'm guessing)
The new Female MD is what would have happened had Jackie gone to Medical instead of Nursing School
Her husband is being a dick -- justifiable but he's still a dick
Eddie (the pharmacist) really needs to get over her--Dude! She was pimping herself to you for oxy!
The cop seems cool, it would be nice to see Jackie in a positive relationship. Although neither of them have the sort of job that is conducive to raising kids
Did you notice that she was leaving a voicemail on the phone of her ex-boss's dead kid --not only does she feel the need to talk to him, but his father hasn't killed the account.
That's about all I can think of for the first few episodes.

Huh. I forgot the green haired kid died. Last season was short and abrupt. I'm liking this season more, although I worry - the sober seasons of Rescue Me were the worst.

The rehiring of Eddy this season was stupidly written, but they just wanted to get on with it, I suppose. Otherwise I've been enjoying this season and Edie Falco is such a good actress.

I've been staying out of the thread to avoid spoilers, but I just caught up from Season 1, Episode 1. (They removed Season 4 Episode 10 from the VoD lineup just as I was about to watch it! I had to watch Ep 9 in SD.)

Nurse Jackie has been an obsession. I like that the show is in ADD-friendly 30 minute segments. It was my breakfast and lunch activity.

The ensemble cast is first rate. The writing is outstanding, i.e. a few times Dr. Cruz seems to be being a dick and then it quickly became that he was making a wise or compassionate decision. "You think I couldn't handle that patient?" - "I'M the obstetrician." "I moved you to a closer office."

At this point I'm ahead of most of you because Showtime is putting episodes on Showtime on Demand a week early. I've seen "Walk of Shame."

I was wondering how Bobby Cannavalle fit in Nurse Jackie while he was on "Boardwalk Empire." At least they both film in New York. He didn't look so big in "The Station Agent." "Charlie" was his real life son. They looked alike.

They left Dr. Cruz leaving unsaid and off camera. I guess we can assume that the Bay Medical(?) still owns All Saints but when they gave Gloria her job back she unwound Dr. Cruz's changes.

What a hoot it is to have Adam Ferarra on. I only knew him from the American "Top Gear." Who knew he was a good actor. He does play Frank as a decent guy with a gleam in his eye, "Take it all in."

They've had some great guest stars. Rosie Perez was outstanding. So was Joel Grey. That movie critic was the real guy.

Now I need more shows!

Time to catch up on "Shameless."

Edie Falco amazes me - I could probably watch her read the phone book.

well, not much happened on this week's ep, other than jackie hooking up, then breaking up, with cruz. i'm glad the cop is back in the picture.

then there's the lame punishment for grace. i understand jackie was glad grace called for help, but come on - my parents would have grounded me for life if i had pulled a stunt like that! of course, i would have never called them for help, either - i would have chosen serious bodily injury over calling them, if i were in that deep.

i still miss o'hara!

On the SHO runner video they said that it was about Jackie finally making right choices.

We haven't yet seen what they'll do with Grace. She might have been scared straight.

well, all hope of grace being scared straight went out the window last ep!

i deduced the empty space at the table (when she left campus for lunch) was for danny, but i had him entering from the restroom, not the front door. what i hadn't (but should have) expected was the drug abuse.

also, i'm glad we finally know what's up with akalitus, and that it doesn't appear serious. 5 eps left this season...

I thought there were only 10 episodes per season which would mean only two left.

i think you're right. i thought imdb listed 1-3 at 12 eps each, so i was hoping for more. season 4 had only 10.

One of the better seasons of Jackie, for me. I just worry they will inevitably have her back to drug use, like Rescue Me with the drinking. I think they've delved deeply enough into that, and have been enjoying her attempts now to reconstruct a life.

I'm a week ahead of broadcast with Showtime on Demand. They have new episodes up on VoD on Monday.

It gets way worse with Grace.

I've seen the season finale.

Watch closely at the last few minutes.

Thanks for the hint. I normally don't bother watching the last few minutes of any show, especially a season finale.
