Anyone watch Nurse Jackie?

    For those not familiar with it, it's a series on Showtime. I realize many of you have time constraints and watching a series may be the least of your worries but does anyone here watch it?
    I kind of like it although it's not very realistic in some aspects. In some it is.

    I love me some Nurse Jackie! I agree that it can be unrealistic, but I think it's the most realistic of the nursing dramas as compared to HawthoRNe and Mercy. I really like how gutsy she is!

    Me too. She's the best one there even though she has this "problem". She's starting to realize it more and more though.
    The parts about budget cuts, overworked, etc are pretty realistic.

    i've watched but can't really relate to her. She makes it look like nurse take their patients narcotics and have affairs wih co-workers. Definitely not a reality show.

    I definitely don't want to relate to her in those aspects either but reality is, although it may not happen how it happens on the show, it does happen.
    Plenty of people have affairs with co workers and there certainly have been cases where nurses have stolen meds for their use.

    I think the producers of the show have a bigger purpose rather then trying to make nurses look a certain way. It's a bit deeper.

    I tried watching it.. but when the first episode showed her having sex at work and taking narcs from patients I was liek mehhh... I like Grey's Anatomy better (even though its unrealistic) I liked the season where McDreamy was dating the OR nurse. At least that show actually SHOWS that nurses exist... unlike House. My parents cant even watch House with me because I get so angry at how unrealistic it is. YOU find me a doctor who will put in a catheter and start an IV for me

    So true. Now that I think about it I've never seen a single nurse in HOUSE.

    Maybe I'll give Nurse Jackie another go Since, It is exam week for me... and of course I need something to blame for my procrastination and lack of study
