I don't think Nurse Jackie gets the recognition it deserves. I'd never heard of it before I randomly stumbled across it on Netflix (sadly it's not on there anymore). It's a dark comedy, telling the story of Jackie Peyton, a drug-addicted nurse who struggles between being the hero of the hospital and her own personal dramas.
This show will always remind me of my dad. Because we watched it through thick and thin; through divorces, rainy days, TV dinners (which I don't recommend but you've gotta do what you gotta do) and hard times. It put a smile on a face and a pace in our steps. Non-stop laughter and brilliant storylines. An absolute classic.
The Boosh is loose and it's coming at 'cha like a buzzard. And so on. Don't be put off by the outlandish costumes. Normally I would have run a mile too; I hate anything remotely slapstick. But beneath the glitzy exterior - there's so much wit and throwaway comments - it's pretty genius.
There's nothing like an episode of a classic American medical drama. Accompanied by love stories, comedy and scenarios you wouldn't think anyone would escape alive from. This series quite literally got me through a break-up. I think of it as a best friend now. Thank you, Shonda Rhimes.
