Seriously, how fantastic is Nurse Jackie? I’m loving Edie Falco’s pill-popping, adulterous title character, the ice princess English doctor, the Tourette’s guy with lesbian moms, and especially the hot hot gay male nurse Mo-Mo played by Haaz Sleiman. The camp factor is through the roof.
Real nurses aren’t too crazy about the way Jackie is portrayed, what with her stealing from the pharmacy and committing a little bit of euthanasia here and there, and the New York State Nurses Association wants the show to put in a disclaimer that Jackie’s character is “an aberration.” But such a complicated character is what makes the show so riveting and damn funny. I just wish it wasn’t only a half-hour long.
