The tone was more comic than it had been while Jackie was still using drugs and deceiving her friends and family; there was very little of the intense drama that has defined the series so far. The finale on Sunday revolves around Jackie’s first sober anniversary. Will she stay sober? As always, Merritt Wever (left, with Falco) is irresistible as Zoey. By the way, Showtime has set up a silly blog for the character called “Zoey’s Nursing It Yo.”

Anyhow, it’s an entertaining look at pitching, and it’s in repeats this summer if you missed the first run. In this episode, a toilet-training system for cats.
