I enjoyed the first 5-6 seasons, but I came to realise that it's the same thing over and over and over again. Plus they have lost some of the best characters over the years, I agree that it's about time they put it out to pasture....

Edie Falco is such a great actress that she is able to make me despise her character Jackie... Jackie clearly has narcissistic personality disorder as she is selfish (even when she does something nice, there is always some benefit to her), destructive, and it only gets worse when she is using drugs.
The character is written in such a way that it's no longer fun watching the show, I'm surprised it has lasted 7 seasons and I look forward... More

Edie Falco is such a great actress that she is able to make me despise her character Jackie... Jackie clearly has narcissistic personality disorder as she is selfish (even when she does something nice, there is always some benefit to her), destructive, and it only gets worse when she is using drugs.
The character is written in such a way that it's no longer fun watching the show, I'm surprised it has lasted 7 seasons and I look forward to the wrap of the series this season because there are no redeeming qualities in this character. I am curious with how they will end it...certainly not with a happy ending.

Jackie Peyton is a very compelling character. Indeed, the show is like a female version of House M.D. except with less medical drama. The focus here is more on the personal issues of drug addicts and balancing between responsibilities.

I can't get enough of this show! I binge watched 6 seasons in, like, 2 weeks and I'm not at all sorry! Such a serious storyline but with some comedic relief, which is nice. You sympathize and then you HATE the characters and then you sympathize again. It's an emotional roller coaster that I keep getting in line for and you should, too!

What the shittles?!!?! The ending to this series is NOT OK. How can you end a series on a cliffhanger? I hate when shows do this. Does she live or not? UGH!!

wonderful and magnificent from the very beginning to the very end. You love her, you think you understand her, you root for her, you hope for the one final rock bottom after which she'd finally snap out of crap, you hate her, and than you finally truly realize understand and accept there is no closure, no moving on, just infinite circles. Who knew I'd find such a super realistic non-bullshitty rollercoaster SO satisfactory!

Like the show, the multiple rough sides of people, weakness and still being able to live on.

The first few seasons of this show were magnificent. Eventually sinning and repenting becomes a dull pattern but I believe the writers felt pressure not to make Jackie too unlikeable. Jackie's sainthood was in her treatment of patients, not her personal life.

The first few seasons of this show were magnificent. Eventually sinning and repenting becomes a dull pattern but I believe the writers felt pressure not to make Jackie too unlikeable. Jackie's sainthood was in her treatment of patients, not her personal life. In a series where the most exciting plotlines revolve around Jackie's crazy drug antics, making her good is to the show's detriment. Later seasons waffle with uncertainty and a hazy lack of commitment to either extreme.

Shame, but a powerful piece of television all the same. Weaver and Falco shine.
