Preview by Jack Foley
GET Addicted! Nurse Jackie’s back for a second season of the darkly comedic show set in a US hospital.
The highly-acclaimed Nurse Jackie: Season Two, stars Edie Falco (The Sopranos, 30 Rock) is currently airing on BBC 2 and will be out on DVD and Blu-ray from the April 18, 2011.
The series has been nominated for various awards with Falco winning the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Nurse Jackie is a pill-popping, rule-bending medical renegade, dishing out her own brand of justice on the wards and giving her superiors hell! But she’s also leading a double life – a happily married mother of two, she’s been having an affair with pharmacist Eddie who supplies her meds.
In this second series, Jackie is coming to terms with her break up from Eddie (Paul Schulze), who is not ready to give Jackie up quite so easily and who strikes up a relationship with her husband, Kevin (Dominic Fumusa)… meanwhile, she’s finding it harder to hide her drug addiction from colleagues, particularly with the introduction of the Pill-O-Matix machine which replaced Eddie.
And she’s continually pestered by the puppy-like novice nurse Zoey (Merritt Wever), who’s started taking making up a few bent rules of her own… Holy Shift!
Also starring Peter Facinelli (The Twilight Saga) plus Eve Best – the acclaimed UK actress recently seen as Wallis Simpson in The King’s Speech, Nurse Jackie combines darkly comic and riveting performances with a perfect cast playing wonderfully observed characters. It is truly addictive…

Plus, you can play catch up on Blu-ray too – Season One will be available on Blu-ray from April 18 as well (RRP £34.99).
