Is anyone else loving "Nurse Jackie"?
Because if you watch it, then you already love it. I LOVE THIS SHOW. But I am so worried the show's not gonna make it. First of all -- no one ever talks about it. I can't believe I'm the only one watching this show -- it's fantastic! Sometimes a little nutty, but SOOOO good!
Plus, I barely realized that Season 2 was even underway! I accidentally found out it was coming back when I happened to be watching the season finale for "Secret Diary" (and that's another thing I've got an issue with... what's up with the really short seasons?!)
I only ever seem to notice it's on when I'm scrolling through On Demand really late at night looking for stuff to watch!
OK... so... I've got plenty to talk about.
+ What the heck happened between last season & this season?! I thought she OD'd in the season finale! So when the first season starts and she's at the boardwalk with her family, I thought she was in some drugged up haze!
+ How long is this Eddie thing gonna go on for?! I don't like that he's toying with Kevin by showing up at the bar and acting like they're best buddies. It leaves a sick feeling in my stomach. Why hasn't Eddie busted her already??
+ What's the deal with Dr. O'Hara's relationship with her mom? Her mom died and left her a pile of money? Did I miss all that? What about her sister, didn't she inherit anything? Why does she let Jackie get away with (and help!) all this nonsense?
+ And the thing that always keeps me on edge... Jackie is gonna get busted one of these days. You know it's gonna happen, it's just a matter of when.
+ I guess the heavy stress of knowing it's gonna happen is probably exactly how her daughter Grace is so unhappy all the time -- by the way, that kid is one incredible actress. She is so believable, and I am so frustrated for her.
OK... so what thinks ye? Please tell me someone out there is also watching Nurse Jackie!
And if you don't watch, you must! They're only half-hour episodes, and aside from the weirdness of Edie Falco and the husband who seems younger (I guess I keep thinking she is Carmela Soprano, and imagine her with an older guy. I try to think being a drug-using nurse has made her look worn-out) -- well aside from that, you too will love it!!
Oh, and also -- Peter Facinelli is hot.
