Nurse Jackie is one comedy drama series about a drug-addicted emergency room nurse whose not only addict to her job but also with painkillers. Jackie Peyton played by Edie Falco is an emergency room nurse at All Saints’ Hospital in New York City.

Her lack of discretions does not prevent her from handling her colleagues, co-nurses, and patients with stable grace. She is not only a nurse or an addict, but also a mother, who battles against her personal dramas. If you like House’s character, then surely you will like Nurse Jackie. She is what we call the female version of House.

This is another fun to watch in line with the other hospital shows such as House, Grey’s Anatomy, and ER. Nurse Jackie is a half-hour dark comedy that spells wickedness, and sometimes heartbreaking turns.

Described by many critics as a television series that’s shows a “strong-willed, iconoclastic New York City nurse juggling the frenzied grind of an urban hospital and equally challenging personal life”, noting that the lead character has an occasional weakness for Vicodin, Oxycontin and other related drugs shown in the series.

Needless to say, the casts are equally great as well, their pitch perfect interactions make the television series hilarious and inspired. Now running on its third season, the show has high remarks, especially now that the show is heading to darker places and interesting plots.

The show’s episodes start and end with character narration, which is quite similar to Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, or Scrubs. But Nurse Jackie has its own name in the making and we think that the show has a lot more things to show. The second and third season is even more exciting and it continues to develop the characters in various ways.
