Product Description

Three-time Primetime Emmy® winner Edie Falco is "outstanding” (TIME Magazine) as Jackie Peyton, a nurse trying to survive the chaotic grind of saving lives in a hectic New York City hospital. Sharp-tongued and quick-witted, Jackie’s a woman of substance who knows how to handle it all. With a white lie here, a bent rule there, and a steady dose of pain relievers for her chronic back pain, Jackie does whatever it takes to get the job done. See why critics call NURSE JACKIE "wildly entertaining” (TV GUIDE Magazine) and "a habit well worth acquiring” (THE WASHINGTON POST) in these bitingly funny episodes from the first season of the groundbreaking series.

Amazon.com

Playing Tony Soprano's long-suffering wife Carmela in The Sopranos may have put Edie Falco's career on the map, but the role that should keep her there is her remarkable portrayal of the title character in Showtime's Nurse Jackie. The 12 highly entertaining episodes (on two discs, plus bonus material) from the series' first season introduce one of the more nuanced and conflicted characters in recent TV history. Falco's Jackie Peyton takes nothin' from nobody ("A quick question?" she says to one colleague. "Shut up."). She berates arrogant doctors who don't meet her standards, works harder and longer than anyone else, and exacts justice by whatever means necessary (even ethically or legally questionable ones) on those who deserve it, be it patients or coworkers; she may also be the only person at her New York hospital who genuinely cares about what she does and who she does it for, bringing a little hope and compassion to the poor, downtrodden souls who come to the hospital on what may well be the worst day of their lives. Then there's her personal life: Jackie's addicted to the pills she takes to dull her back pain, most of which are supplied by her boyfriend, the hospital pharmacist, who has no clue that she also has a husband and two young daughters waiting at home (somehow, Jackie manages to sustain this balancing act through almost the entire season).

The tone of the show is profane and darkly funny, with top-notch writing, creative camera work (including occasional special effects), and confident direction. Medical issues (running the gamut from a woman with lupus and a guy whose date's ex buried a steak knife in his chest to a senior with a stroke, gunshot victims, and beyond) are treated seriously and realistically--doctors make mistakes, and patients die. As for the various other regular characters, they're vivid and just as flawed as Jackie is, but the focus is nearly always on Falco, as it should be. Bonus material includes two audio commentary tracks and a couple of five-minute featurettes. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD
Having never watched the Sopranos (heresy, I know), I didn't have any preconceived notions of what type of person Edie Falco should or should not be playing. Many of my friends tell me that the character of Nurse Jackie is a far cry from her Carmelo Soprano alter-ego.

Jackie is a full time nurse in a public hospital in New York City. Like most nurses and emergency medical workers, she is overworked and underpaid and trying to make do with what life has handed to her. On the surface, she is hardworking nurse who is a loving mother of two little girls and a devoted wife to Kevin Payton who runs a local bar. Scratch the surface just a little bit and the perfect facade peels away to reveal a drug addicted adulterer who regularly breaks the laws in order to suit her own perceived morals.

Nurse Jackie tackles quite a few heavy subjects during its initial season including assisted suicide, underage children caring for their parents, as well as the rigors of raising children who aren't quite perfect. Medical dramas are a dime a dozen and the comedy versions just always seem to be lacking substance, however the staff writers of Nurse Jackie do a masterful job of mixing the heavy subjects in with very lighthearted, almost slapstick humor.

While the Peyton household hasn't been expanded on very much (honestly you could replace the husband and two little girls with bricks and you probably wouldn't notice much difference), the hospital staff shines in every way. Doctor O'Hara is the archetypal rich doctor as well as the "straight man" for most of Jackie's exploits. While her character was explored a little bit in season one, there wasn't a lot invested yet. Doctor Cooper is the hotshot doctor straight out of Med School looking to make his mark.

As a nurse, I love this show. You'd think I'd hate it, due to the fact that Jackie has a drug problem and she cheats on her husband. But, she is actually a good nurse in spite of her flaws. What I like about this show is that nurses aren't painted as helpmaids to the physicians. My problem with many of the medical shows is that they show doctors doing stuff that nurses do on a daily basis and the nurses are all but invisible.

Nurses aren't saints..we are professionals who want to be compensated for the work we do. And we're human. Sometimes, we're tired and cranky. Quite often, we're frustrated with a system that is more about the bottom line than actual patients. That's why Nurse Jackie rocks..because Jackie for all her faults and cynicism still gives a crap. She is a good nurse, and her faults can't change that.

I also enjoy the student nurse character..very realistic.LOL, she has that "deer in the headlights" look that we all had starting out..

I see some complaints that "Nurse Jackie", as played by Edie Falco, is not a positive role model. They have a point - Jackie cheats on her husband with a pharmacist who thinks he is her main squeeze, so that Jackie can be kept with a steady supply of narcotics.

But like the proverbial onion, Jackie has layers, and like another of my favorite Showtime eponymous characters, Dexter Gordon, Jackie is not by any stretch "all evil" and she is never, ever boring.

Jackie's an adulterous druggie - but she's more. Years of having to literally manhandle patients in the Emergency Room more than twice her size have left Jackie with an aching back, and she could pursue more permanent treatment, but she and her family need this week's paycheck, so she masks her painful back with ill-gotten hard stuff. Merritt Wever plays Zoey, a young nurse who is everything Jackie is not - naïve, inexperienced, and as likely to want to cuddle her patients as treat them. The interactions between the experienced Jackie and the still-learning Zoey are one of the cornerstones of the show.

Jackie does things on the other side of "ethical", but like Robin Hood, she does them because her heart is in the right place. She knows desperate patients wait for potential donors, so when a brain-dead bicycle courier is brought to her ER, Jackie forges the dying man's signature onto an organ donor card.

If she sees nurses or doctors doing wrong or even not doing as well as they should, Jackie gets in their face. She is not the touchy-feely one in her department. But she is the one the others go to if they're in a tough spot.

I can't beleive that no one has mentioned this yet, or maybe I am just really a sick, evil person and I should get help now, but for me the appeal of Nurse Jackie is that it is a Seinfeldian Revenge show. Most revenge flicks are epic, when someone completely destroys your life or takes away everything that gave your life meaning, like Count of Monte Cristo or Kill Bill.

But I say Nurse Jackie's revenge is Seinfeldian because we're talking about little daily trials and tribulations that real people are expected to just deal with if you are to remain in civil society. I mean, have you noticed that she is essentially giving us the finger - but with a syringe instead of her middle finger? If not, don't feel bad - it took me longer than I care to admit to see it.

Nurse Jackie's life motto seems to be: Don't Get Mad; Get Even. While that is not really a good way to live, it is entertaining AS HELL to watch a character be on television.

I will use an example and not tell you which patient so as not to spoil, but on the episode that won me over, on her way home she encounters a person that reminds her of her patient that just died. She looks at him very sincerely and says "Be Careful." He looks at her like "Who do you think you are, my mother?" and says "F- you!" She doesn't even blink, just kneels down and does something that pretty much ensures that he will either be having an accident of his own, or just a really rotten evening. I mean she doesn't even think about it!

Am I a bad person because I thought that was freakin' hilarious? Possibly. But one of the first things she says on the show is a prayer - and I guess it would be the show's motto - "God, make me good; but not yet." It TELLS you that she is in no way supposed to be a role model, or an example of a typical emergency-room nurse. I imagine she is as typical a nurse as Nancy Botwin is a typical suburban single mother.
