It's safe to say I'm obsessed with Nurse Jackie. I also love Edie Falco, but her character is who I'm obsessed with. At the end of the last season, I thought the best of the show was behind us, but I think I'm about to like this season the most. I'm pre-favoriting this season.
SPOILER ALERT... If you haven't seen the first episode, go back to the main page.
I like Jackie more when she's using drugs. It's horrible to say, but I do. I think everyone has been exposed to a pain killer in their lifetime, so everyone knows how good it feels to be on them. I've taken more than my fair share, and I understand the addictive properties of opiates, so I relate to Jackie's struggle to a certain extent. So now that she's using again, we're in the best plot twist that could ever happen on the show.
We meet her new sponsor, who I recognize from somewhere else on TV from a long time ago. It seems as though this sponsor is pretty sassy, so I'm hoping they'll do a little partying together. I'm so excited. I feel actual excitement when this show is on, and is the only show--other than American Horror Story--that I watch without doing anything else in the background. Everything stops when Nurse Jackie is on.
I only wish it were longer. An hour-long Nurse Jackie would be fantastic! I can't wait 'til the next episode!
