Yet More Medical TV Shows

by ,

With the passing of shows (some of which we wish hadn’t passed) comes new shows.
I grabbed a few recently and here’s what I thought of them.

Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie

Mrs. Soprano strikes out as a not-even-remotely-perfect nurse at a hospital.
She swears, takes pain drugs for her back (shades of House) and has sex with doctors.
But unlike House or Grey’s Anatomy, this show has a much grittier, more real feel to it.
So far though, I’m not sure if that aspect is adding to or subtracting from the show’s appeal.

Edie Falco
is a very strong actress, and I could understand why she might want to have a dark, gritty, and above all *serious* show.
But she also has a comedic side, and that is completely smothered by the cynical realism of this show.

I’ve seen all of 10 minutes of this show so far, but it’s yet another doctor show.
I’m getting tired of doctor shows, but Mark Feuerstein
is keeping my interest (so far).’

We’ll have to see where this one goes.

    Now that I've watched two episodes, I'll say that I like this show. It's not have-to-watch, but it's entertaining.

    Still, I wish they'd kept Firefly around instead of all these “entertaining” shows. :-/

    Sour grapes? Me? Nahhhh…
