You can watch the first episode NOW in advance screening on their website:

Showtime Official Site :: Preview Showtime

Edie Falco stars. Showtime is on such a run... Weeds, Dexter, etc.. here's another one that looks to be in the bag..I'm there. First episode is a good start.

Very strong pilot.

I caught it on Direct TV 101, and thought it was ok, and didn't quite give me the feeling of "I wish I had Showtime". But it's just one episode, and I'm intrigued enough to see more, when it comes out on DVD. Kind of like House and Scrubs.

I laughed when she says "Fuck You" to a severed ear, before flushing it down the toilet.

A pretty good but slightly odd premiere episode. Nurse Jackie isn't a saint, she has some anti-hero qualities like drug use and cheating on her spouse (nice touch casting the priest from The Sopranos). Forging a signature on the donor card was "wrong", but the result was that someone was helped. Her choices throughout the season will be interesting.

I can't really think of anything I didn't like about it, though I didn't go in expecting to see a pristine character. I've seen articles about whether nurses will feel it's an accurate portrayal. I don't even get what the debate is. If they mean every nurse should be portrayed as Florence Nightingale, then I guess this'll fall short. But as for being realistic, I saw more realistic things in this one episode than a whole season of, say, "24". Working too much, drug use, covering personal illnesses, affairs, and dealing with doctors who are far more educated than you, but often care far less? The episode felt like a documentary to me.

well I Might watch a few eps.. but I'm getting tired of Anti-hero stuff, and besides snorting pills, stealing cash, forging donor cars, and flushing ears..not to mention marital Infedelity, it's a bunch much. Plus I've spent too much time in hospitals and Doctors offices of late.

'Nurse Jackie' picked up for second season

Quote:
Showtime is giving a second season order to "Nurse Jackie" after the Edie Falco drama became Showtime's most-watched series premiere ever Monday night.

It's a risk after just one episode, but I'd assume they've filmed more and the PTB have seen them. Personally, I can't see not watching it until it ends.

Already? I guess it does get better.

I know Showtime has done this with a few of their other shows, giving them a second season, only a few episodes in.

I tried to like it but the pilot bored me.

I don't know, I guess I just can't take another Showtime show about fucked-up people lol. I already watch Dexter, Californication and Weeds.

Plus there's already a screwed-up doctor with substance abuse problems on my schedual, he goes by the name of Dr. Gregory House.

House is a flawed cartoon superhero. Nurse Jackie is the rest of us.
