'Nurse Jackie'If you haven't seen the season finale of 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime), what are you doing reading this? You should probably click on something else or look quickly at that picture of Jackie over there. She looks pretty shocked, doesn't she?


What's shocking to her turned out to be shocking to us as well, when Kevin finally confronted her about what's been weighing on his mind all this time: The affair.

It was only one moment that Jackie's back was against the wall. The other was in the form of a urine test HR insisted all the nurses take that will unequivicably expose her drug problem. With that looming, she was ready for Kevin.

Jackie Finds a 'Fancy Methadone Clinic' on 'Nurse Jackie' (VIDEO)

by Mike Moody, posted Jun 14th 2011 12:55AM
nurse jackieIn an attempt to help wean Jackie (Edie Falco) off the hard stuff, Dr. O'Hara (Eve Best) might have just become her biggest enabler on the penultimate episode of 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on SHO) Season 3.

In a tense scene, O'Hara discovered that Jackie was, shall we say, raiding her daughter's stash. Jackie, of course, isn't a traditional nurse. Realizing that the traditional route to recovery -- rehab, meetings, detox -- wouldn't work for Jackie, O'Hara reacted to her addiction by choosing to write her a prescription.

'Nurse Jackie' - 'Caregiver' Recap

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 20th 2010 12:13AM
(S02E05) Jackie Peyton has to be one of the most complicated and twisted characters on television today. Just trying to navigate the ins and outs of her mind, the motivations and mood swings, is enough to make you seasick. But then she does something soulful and pure and good, and you wonder if you were wrong to doubt her. You had all that, plus 'Alice in Wonderland' in this episode. More after the jump.

Thankfully, the Jackie Worship on 'Nurse Jackie' is Ending

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 19th 2010 7:03PM
Edie Falco in 'Nurse Jackie'One of the things that drove me nuts about the first season of Showtime's 'Nurse Jackie' was all the Jackie worship going on.

Yes, Edie Falco's character of the drug-addicted, adultering nurse Jackie Peyton was good at her job, and seems to have a much better bedside manner than most of the people working at All Saints Hospital. And, yes, the premise of the show, especially in that first season, was that she was somehow keeping all of her worlds separate and her lies in order, despite being in a highly stressful job.

But most of the juggling that Jackie was doing seemed pretty unrealistic -- especially in the romance department -- and I'm happy to see that some of those balls are finally falling to the ground.

Nurse Jackie, apple bongJackie's skills with an apple bong really came in handy when she taught a cancer patient how to smoke pot on 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime).

"You're gonna take a deep breath and hold it for a minute," she told him. And voila! He actually feels hungry. Yep, that's how it works. Nursing at its best.

'Nurse Jackie' - 'Apple Bong' Recap

There's a lot about 'Nurse Jackie' that reminds me of a ticking bomb. Eddie at the pharmacy. Gloria at the hospital. Cooper and Sam getting under Jackie's skin. She's like a tightly wound clock that could pop a spring at any point. Without any major drugs this episode, she seemed more tightly wound than ever. For more about Jackie and the pressure cooker she calls her life, read on.

'Nurse Jackie' Is Caught Doing Drugs (VIDEO)

'Nurse Jackie' Is Caught Doing DrugsNurse Jackie (played by Edie Falco) has a slight problem with drugs. She loves to abuse her position as a medical employee so she can illegally take Vicodin, Percocet, and -- as it turns out -- Adderall. On the latest episode of 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime), Jackie is caught by Kaitlyn, a young girl and friend of the family, while snorting a line of Adderall in her basement. "What's that thing you just did with the straw?" Kaitlyn asks, quite naturally. And Jackie says -- well, what would you say?

'Nurse Jackie' - 'Candyland' Recap

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 6th 2010 12:31AM
Jackie's answer to a myriad of questions could be summed up in one phrase: "It's a little complicated." Boy, is it ever. For Jackie, the roof is always just about to cave in, and this week was no different. However, by the end of the episode, the complications grew ever more gnarly with the appearance of a certain former friend, playing CandyLand with her family. For more on that and Zoey's hot date in Staten Island, follow me after the jump.

'Nurse Jackie' - 'Twitter' Recap

(S02E02) When it comes to Jackie and her reliance on meds, what came first -- the stress or the drugs? You have to wonder. For those who think that Jackie is like House, there's one difference which is House had a serious injury that was the gateway to his Vicodin addiction. Jackie did allude to back problems last season, but now she just swipes pills and pops them like they're a crutch.

Anyway, this thought occurred as Jackie continues to be a mass of contradictions, especially to herself. This week was no different. More on that and the smoke alarms after the jump.

Jackie Explains Hospital Procedure on 'Nurse Jackie' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 30th 2010 3:30AM
Nurse Jackie, hospital procedure"Any unidentifiable drugs or substances go into the slot," says Jackie to the guy who found some of her pills on 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on SHO). "That's hospital procedure. Got it?"

And, of course, just as soon as he's out of sight, Jackie unlocks that little box and grabs those precious pills. That's HER procedure, got it?

Jackie kind of personifies the term pill-poppin' mama, doesn't she? At this point, she probably needs the pills to function, but on the other hand, how the heck does she function doing all those drugs?

Showtime Renews 'Jackie' and 'Tara' for Third Seasons

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 26th 2010 10:45AM
Nurse JackieWith their second seasons just off the starting blocks, Showtime has already ordered a third for both 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Monday-night's season opener snagged 'Jackie' it's highest numbers to date (1.5 million over two airings) and 'Tara' was on par with its first season debut.

Her bang-on portrayal of a jaded E.R. nurse whose unmanageable back pain leads her to abuse pain pills (and the man who dispenses them) earned star Edie Falco her seventh Golden Globe nomination (she won two for 'The Sopranos'). 'Tara' lead Toni Collette, meanwhile, nabbed both the Globe and an Emmy statues at last year's ceremonies.

Showtime Picks Up Third Seasons of 'Jackie' and 'Tara'

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 25th 2010 6:40PM
showtime_logo_redIt doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize that Showtime is the home of two of the best comedies currently on the air, 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara.' Having been fortunate enough to enjoy the season two premieres of these two shows last Sunday, it came as no surprise that Showtime announced today that both 'Jackie' and 'Tara' are coming back for a third season.

Actually, it is a bit of a surprise ... that it happened so fast! Showtime could have saved the news for a few weeks or even the end of these second seasons. But you have to figure the premium cable channel is pretty happy with the ratings these shows have generated and the enthusiasm is palpable. Another season, twelve more episodes of each, and for the creators of these shows that just has to be a great validation.

Jackie Knocks a Punk Over on 'Nurse Jackie' (VIDEO)

Nurse Jackie, Season 2 PremiereWe wouldn't really want Jackie Peyton's life, because it sort of sucks. On the other hand, we wouldn't mind having her chutzpah to say or do exactly what we wanted at any particular moment.

Like if some punk was trash-talking in front of our kids, we'd like to knock him over like Jackie did on 'Nurse Jackie' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime). That would be a blast.

'Nurse Jackie' - 'Comfort Food' Recap (Season Premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 23rd 2010 4:03AM
Remember seeing the variety shows where a guy was spinning plates and the point of the trick was to keep all the plates spinning so that nothing fell to the ground and crashed into a million pieces? That's the ongoing life of Nurse Jackie.

Season two commenced not unlike the season one premiere, with Jackie flat on her back and a 1960's tune underscoring the moment. Instead of 'Valley of the Dolls,' it was 'Say A Little Prayer," but the sentiment remained the same. Jackie's a high wire act even when she's on her ass.
