Nurse Jackie, Pilot, 10.30pm, showcase
In case you haven’t seen this fabulous show, the Sopranos’ Edie Falco stars as Nurse Jackie Peyton, a hard working and dedicated ER nurse who has a bad back, is married with two kids, but fools around and puts altogether too many hours in at work. Jackie also has good judgment and knows more than some of the residents. When she tells Dr Cooper (Peter Facinelli) that she suspects a bicycle messenger brought in following an accident of having a brain bleed, he tells her off. She decides that something good will come out of the situation regardless. Similarly, when she learns that a diplomat who attacked a hooker will not be charged because of his diplomatic immunity, she has a solution for that as well.
