Nurse Jackie


I'm always on the lookout for a good television series.  They're few and far between, and TV in the post-Wire world seems worse than TV in the pre-Wire world.

I've watched the first six episodes of Nurse Jackie and I'm enjoying it.  It's nice and dark, just the way I like it.  Initially I had trouble getting used to Carmela Soprano as a New York City nurse, but Edie Falco is such a good actress, she wins you over.

I mentioned it's dark.  It's not overly dark, but it's got a healthy tinge of cynicism and Nurse Jakie is a nicely flawed heroine.

I'm watching this Showtime series on TMN.  If you've got TMN, you can catch up pretty quick.
