Following the framework of previously established dramadies on Showtime, Nurse Jackie aims to show the life of a RN working at a busy hospital who pops pills and leads a double life.
Nurse Jackie has already created some controversy because of its content. The show is for mature audiences and tells a story about a hard working nurse, dedicated to her job, but with a habit.
This show is a lot better than Hawthorne. I wasn’t immediately hooked, but the situations that Jackie gets herself into are amusing. She’s cheating on her devoted husband with her pharmacist, who supplies her with pills. She deals out her own kind of justice in order to make things right in her own eyes.
Nurse Jackie is entertaining. Even though I don’t always watch it immediately, I’ve caught up on the shows and I like it. Sorry about this late update as well, it took me a bit of time to find the files. They were squirreled away on another HD.
Warning: spoilers ahead.
