Us Rating ***1/2

As the wry, pill-popping titular character, Edie Falco is a marvel to watch. This season, Jackie continues her secret habit, even as her personal life unravels. Some far-fetched story lines aside, TV's grimmest comedy is raw, riveting and endearing. For comic relief, Peter Facinelli is painfully funny as a jerky doctor. (Lionsgate, $40)
