I was a bit of a late adopter to Nurse Jackie – mostly because they kept messing around with the scheduling on TV, but the reason I got into it again was because I watched The Sopranos back to back and was missing Carmela – the wonderful Edie Falco, who also plays Nurse Jackie. And I’m very glad I did, because Nurse Jackie is completely addictive – more bitter (and at times downright acerbic) than sweet, and of course it has the added bonus of the delectable Peter Facinelli, aka Dr Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight movies.
In Season 4 Jackie comes to realize that both karma and sobriety can be a b***h. In addition to finally confronting her addiction, Jackie’s street smarts and sardonic wit are tested even further by an ambitious new hospital administrator (Bobby Cannavale, from Boardwalk Empire), who’s determined to keep Jackie in line, but has issues of his own. It’s absolutely brilliant and you’ll be completely hooked.
