Product Description

Edie Falco stars as title character Jackie Peyton, a drug-addicted emergency room nurse in a New York City hospital. For Jackie, every day is a high-wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions. The second season of the Showtime Original Series Nurse Jackie™ continues its look deep inside the complicated heart and soul of a functioning addict, a loving wife and mother, and a first-class nurse.


Adultery. Drug addiction. Serial lying. Childhood development problems. Hey, everyone's got to have a little fun, right? The curious thing about Nurse Jackie, the Showtime series whose second season is released here with 12 episodes on three discs, is that it does manage to make some of these issues amusing, at least in a darkly humorous kind of way; this is a dramedy with some real bite. Much of that is due to the presence of Emmy winner Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton, a character who remains alternately appealing and appalling as she tries to keep her life afloat in increasingly treacherous seas. When the first season ended, Jackie's unsustainable romantic balancing act was on the verge of collapse after her lover, once and future hospital pharmacist Eddie (Paul Schulze), saw her with husband Kevin (Dominic Fumusa) and their two young daughters; things get considerably creepier this time around, as Eddie gradually insinuates himself into Jackie's home life by becoming friends with Kevin. That's not all. Daughter Grace, previously diagnosed with something called "generalized anxiety disorder," is deteriorating into full-on weirdness. Jackie's pill popping is becoming a huge problem as well; hiding drugs in her kids' plastic Easter eggs is bad, stealing them from the hospital is worse, and having a new nurse (Arjun Gupta) who is himself a recovering addict and knows exactly what Jackie's up to is the worst of all. And yet, this flawed, conflicted character remains someone you'd want at your bedside in the ER; despite all her problems, Jackie still finds the time to bake pot brownies to ease the pain of a touchingly lonely, dying cancer patient, offering a quality of mercy that's totally beyond the ken of coworkers like beleaguered boss Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) and young Dr. Fitch Cooper (Peter Facinelli), a clueless narcissist who remains the show's most annoying character. Nice performances are also turned in by Eve Best as the jaded, lusty Dr. O'Hara and Merritt Wever as the green but promising nurse Zoey Barkow, but after the second season ends with another cliffhanger, it's Nurse Jackie's fate we'll be wondering about when the third one begins. Bonus features include a couple of short featurettes and cast and crew audio commentary. --Sam Graham

With Season 2 of "Nurse Jackie," Jackie Peyton has officially eclipsed Nancy Botwin as the most fascinating and complex lead female character on a current cable show. Before "Weeds" started floundering, the show was about a complicated, more or less ordinary woman with both good intentions and some nasty secrets. Nurse Jackie's character (fleshed out by Edie Falco's superb, nuanced performance) offers all that and then some.

If the ending of Season 1 had it looking like Jackie's drug abuse and infidelity were going to finally come out in the open, well, not so much. After all, drug addicts are slippery and manipulative people, and in the beginning of the season, Jackie is able to keep leading her double life without disastrous consequences. But as the Season goes on, and Jackie's actions become more and more desperate and reckless, it looks like at least a few of the people around her are, at the very least, onto her.

While Jackie's storyline keep progressing, Season Two did a very good job of making all of the supporting characters much more interesting and fleshed-out. Miss Acolytes, a wasted character in the first season, comes into her own as the hospital's thick-skinned, yet good- hearted, administrator. Nurse MoMo's role as token gay and male nurse has been replaced by two much more interesting characters: Teddy Bear-ish Thor and recovering addict Sam. Idealistic Zoë continues to grow professionally, and her romance with a sweet paramedic is probably the most endearing pairing on the show. And Dr. Cooper continues to flail about in his narcissistic, yet strangely endearing, way.

The characters closest to Jackie, husband Kevin, BFF Dr. O'Hara, and lover Eddie, all go down darker and more complicated roads this season.

This time the show is a 4 or a 4.5. With some work on the script regarding Jackie's motivation, it could easily go to a perfect 5.

I still have no inkling why Nurse Jackie is a drug addict. I still view that as a flaw in the script. I think there should be SOME inkling as to why she has gone off the deep end. However, this season is much, much better straight across the board than season one. Even if we don't know the why of her addiction, the show does an excellent job of showing HOW Nurse Jackie's life is coming apart as a result of her drug addiction. She gets trapped in all of her different lies to all the different people in her life. Since drug addiction is progressive, she cannot make it for even a short while now without a fix. Her addiction is also costing her a fortune and she even steals drugs from a guy who is flat out with a seizure, who ends up being a dealer and comes after her.

The series is also quite good at depicting the mess and morass that is our present health care system. By the time you finish watching season two, your most urgent hope will be that you don't get sick and need care.

I really hated Eddie in season one but even Eddie tries to help her this season as she spirals out of control. He even rescues her husband one night. Plus her husband and the woman doctor best friend are forced to get along and get together as Jackie worsens.

If you think Jackie is about to enter rehab, think again. She finds it ludicrous that anyone could even think she is a drug addict. However, things are so serious that if I were her family member, with season three we would be opening in probate court for a commitment hearing for mandatory treatment.

Season 2 of "Nurse Jackie" is an excellent 3-DVD set. Edie Falco is an amazing leading actress. The character of Jackie Peyton becomes even more real as we see her wonderful qualities of fighting for the little guy who tries hard vs. her own internal demons. Usually, a character who is an adulterer is hard for me to like. With pathos, when Jackie says, "It is possible to love two people at the same time," it breaks off a piece of my heart. In the episode "Apple Bong," she suggests that a cancer patient try marijuana when no prescription drugs are relieving his pain. Dr. Cooper goes on a great moral crusade against Jackie for the recommendation, who nods and as usual just goes around him, showing him how to smoke from carving an apple. Similarly, in "Caregiver," she is infuriated when an elderly patient shows up and the caregiver who is paid to be with her every day is obviously committing fraud and neglect. As the season comes to an end, we see her husband bring in Dr. O'Hara to confront Jackie's drug addiction that is financially ruining their family. Part of what I take away from the series with each of the characters is how everyone in a position of responsibility is also a person with stresses and demands on them that they at times meet and at times buckle under.

Arjun Gupta plays the nurse Sam who has had a drug problem and in season two freaks out as Dr. Cooper steals his girlfriend. He does an excellent job with so many levels. Peter Fascinelli is amazing when you look at his work in the Twilight series as the serious elder of the vampire clan vs. his lighthearted turn as the emotionally stunted Fitch Cooper. While both characters are doctors, their temperaments are so different that it is a wonder the same actor has such range. Eve Best as Dr. O'Hara is riveting.
