Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie (Showtime, 2009-present) stars Edie Falco. It's a nifty series with Falco building on her previous work (The Sopranos, etc.). Anyone else seen this one? 

Looking back, the number of American TV shows with a woman protagonist has expanded over time. I remember reruns of Hazel (working as a house maid) from the 1960s, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Julia (Diahann Carroll). Lucille Ball, of course, before that. I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, The Flying Nun. Oh yeah, Gidget and The Patty Duke Show.

Today's Rune: Movement.

Don't forget the Golden Girls & Maude.

I started watching nurse Jackie but then lost showtime so whoops there it went.

I've heard good things about it but haven't seen it. We don't get any of the movie channels
