A Dose of Good TV

By  June 05, 2009

It’s not often that I find myself looking forward to Monday on a Friday. But this week is an exception. I have been so crazy-bored these last couple of weeks without reliable,  quality television that this Monday lineup is just what the doctor (or rather, nurse!) ordered. Nurse Jackie premieres on Monday night at 10 PM on Showtime right after the season premiere of Weeds!

Nurse Jackie Peyton is far from ordinary. As an ER nurse, she navigates the rough waters of a crumbling healthcare system, doing everything she can to provide her patients with the best care possible. Whether she’s lighting into a smug doctor for failing to heed her advice, or stealing a fat money clip from a man who stabbed a prostitute and giving it to a pregnant widow, or forging the organ donor card of a man who just died, Jackie Peyton is compelled to make sense of the chaos and to level the playing field whenever she can. Right or wrong, it’s Jackie’s brand of justice all made that more manageable by a daily diet of prescription pain medication.
