Showtime's new series "Nurse Jackie" premieres Monday, June 8, 2009. DirecTV subscribers get a sneak peak on Channel 101. I watched it last night and don't know what to think of it! Don't talk during it, or blink. If you do, you will surely miss something in this fast paced half hour dark comedy.
I loved Edie Falco in the Sopranos and I love her in this new series. Sure, she's a bitch, and a ho, and crazy as hell, but unfortunately she is also addicted to pain meds. How sad to see a nurse snorting drugs. I guess it makes for good tv, but if I were a nurse I would be fuming! I really hope as the series develops that Nurse Jackie will overcome her drug addiction. The show would still be a big hit.
So you don't have showtime? Well, surely it will be on dvd after the season is over. But wait! If you really want to watch the first episode (minus the F bomb and other adult content) you can watch it here thanks to showtime and Youtube!
If you watch it let me know what you think!
