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.

Jackie and Kevin bring their girls to their new school. Jackie blindsides some dude in his 30s skating and making old ladies fall down.

Eddie wants to come out to Kevin. He doesn’t like hiding stuff from Kevin. Kevin calls him when things aren’t going well. He wants to tell him that he works for All Saints. He wants to get out of this shithole. He can’t live with the lies and Jackie is a world calls liar.

Gloria wants to get Michelle Obama to visit All Saints. She tells Jackie that Eleanor is checking out other hospitals.

While Jackie is popping some more pills, she’s trying to convince Kevin that she isn’t an addict. Eleanor still hasn’t forgiven her. She kind of stalks Eleanor during her lunch hour and asks her to stay.

Cooper tries to make up to Sam, but fails again.

At Kevin’s bar, Kevin asks Jackie to find Eddie a job at All Saints. The ploy was to tell Kevin that Eddie lost his job and is looking for another one.
