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 and between all of the new medical dramas, Hawthorne, Mercy, etc., it’s definitely the best.
Warning: spoilers ahead.

Eddie and Jackie wake up together in bed. She tells him that he’s got to stop hanging around Kevin. She pops in at home. Caitlyn is having a sleep over. She’s bullying Jackie’s youngest and she doesn’t like it. Caitlyn isn’t very nice. She’s a spoiled child.
Jackie arrives at work. She finds some of the bus stop posters of Coop. A girl named Jennifer had a big motorcycle accident. She’s a vet and she’s got a ruptured spleen. Jack runs into a drug salesman. He gives a few samples. She pops them in her usual place. She almost gets caught and has to dump the stash. Zoey is pretty peppy and probably getting on Jackie’s nerves. Zoey hasn’t even had a pregnancy test. She just knows that she’s preggers.
Coop is very proud of his cutouts. O’Hara’s friend from the news channel comes by. She’s played by Julia Ormond. They all go out for lunch and come back to the ER. A guy was hot with an arrow. The lung is brand new. He just had a transplant. Coop comes to see Gloria with a defaced cutout that says “I grab boobs”.
Arrow guy makes it. Zoey comes by and screams bleeding. This means that she isn’t preggers.
Jackie learns that Kevin is still hanging out with Eddie. When she’s about to leave, Jackie learns that the rich dude’s driver is here. He doesn’t like his boss. He came for the arrow. His boss got drunk and shot an arrow off the roof. Jackie scratches his Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG.
Fi wanted a cast on her arm for her birthday.
