Nurse Jackie: Season 7 [DVD + Digital]

 

Nurse Jackie: Season 7 [DVD + Digital]
 

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/3/15

I had never seen this series before, but I've read about it in "Entertainment Weekly." They love the show. I knew it was a comedy and that it was about a nurse who takes drugs.  Still, I wasn't sure I should just start watching the DVD, so I first watched the very first episode, which I found online.

It's pretty clear the show started out as a more realistic show about a nurse who takes drugs and sleeps around (although still a comedy), but as the series has progressed, things have gotten more and more outrageous. It kind of reminds me of "House," although Jackie is not nearly as rude as he is.  Then again, doctors have a lot more power than nurses; he could probably get away with it more than she would.

Jackie is actually very likable, even when she's doing some pretty awful things.  I wouldn't say the show is as funny as "House," but it's a good show and enjoyable. The characters are interesting and it makes a good comedy-soap opera.

Season 7 starts after Jackie has been arrested. She got in trouble at work for taking drugs, and then she fled (I think they wanted her to take a drug test). She had a ton of drugs in her car as she tried to drive to Florida, but then she was in an accident, so they arrested her because of all of the drugs they found.

It's a good show, and you should definitely check it out. I would start with season 1, but that's just me. I hate coming in the middle of a show.  They do a very good job, though, of letting you know who's who so you can just starting watching this DVD if you want. I don't think you'll be too lost.

The Blu-Ray is good and has a lot of entertaining features to watch.  This is the last season, so it's going to have some bittersweet moments, I'm sure. I won't spoil it for you.  Go watch!!
