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.

Kevin, Jackie, and Grace are in therapy. She says that she can’t get her thoughts to slow down. She’s got a lot of nightmares about animals and fire. She wants some drugs to medicate her anxiety. The psychiatrist says that she could go on paediatric doses of Xanax.

A bunch of doctors are in the ER to get their flu shots.

Jackie is told that by Gloria that she can no longer dispense meds. She immediately thinks that it’s Eleanor. She confronts her in front of a patient. Eleanor sends Zoey out. Everyone feels bad for O’Hara.

Good-looking people have to stick together.

Later, they patch it up. Eleanor says that they should work together and burn the person who reported Jacks.

After talking to Coop about his upcoming birthday-wedding, Gloria is talking to the church again about the statues. They want $7K. Eleanor comes to see Gloria about Jackie. Gloria says that it’s off limits.

Here you are on the verge of signing away your willy for the rest of your life.

Jackie tells Eleanor that she’s off been the pills for a week. Eleanor fills the prescription for Grace for Jackie. Jackie goes home to give Grace the pills.
