Nurse Jackie has been receiving nominations since it started in 2009, so while most people are familiar with its name, they still haven't watched it. Nurse Jackie follows emergency room nurse Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco) through her pain killer-fueled life of chaos and lies. If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea for a comedy series, you should know Nurse Jackie is a great dark comedy that is filled with more endearing characters than most series you currently watch – and Nurse Jackie is probably funnier, honestly.
There's a reason why Edie Falco has been nominated for an Emmy every year it's been on the air - and it's not because everyone is still talking about The Sopranos finale.
What You Need to Know: If you've ever wanted to know what people who work in a hospital really think, Nurse Jackie will give you hilarious crash-course in the devilish world of health care.
