Nurse Jackie was awesome and had, perhaps, the best end line of all “I’m Jackie and I’m an addict. Blow me.” Loved it. I wondered from the beginning how long she would get away with it. Now I wonder how it will play out. I kind of think it will send her back into Eddie’s arms since he seems to deal with the drug part and now he knows everything about her. The most interesting relationship in jeopardy to me isn’t Kevin, it’s her relationship with O’Hara. O’Hara knows far more about Jackie’s real life than Kevin ever did. By keeping the various pockets of her life secret from others, she’s made quite a mess of everything. I’m sure the drug dealer will be back too. I, for one, can’t wait for its return in the Fall. Will Jackie quit using? Will she even try?
United States of Tara. The revelation of the half brother, who is most likely the molester, will be a great start for next season. New characters, such as Shoshanna and Chicken, were really good but could have completely been jump the shark moments. Still a pretty tight show so I will continue watching.
I liked the Glee season finale and appreciated some of the more subtle insights into the characters – Sue choosing New Directions for first place, Puck telling Quinn he loved her “even more now” and others. What I didn’t like was that Rachel’s mother, who has declined a relationship with her, is adopting Quinn’s baby? I love the character and am glad she is staying around – don’t love that result for the baby. Also, since when does one guy singing (Jonathan Groff) make it a show choir? Groff rocked Bohemian Rhapsody though. Vocal Adrenaline had good dancers but he is the only one that really sang. While New Directions had Finn and Rachel as leads, everyone participated. Not surprised with the result and I think it is better that they lost so they can really want it even more next year.
Haven’t watched Justified yet but I bet it rocks!
