A pill-popping hospital staff member? I was afraid Nurse Jackie might be too House for my taste. No fears, it’s really not the same at all and to my knowledge there hasn’t been an emotional vomit scene on House yet while Nurse Jackie came out of the gates running, or barfing, rather. Jackie wasn’t the puker, of course, she’s tough as nails. It was new upbeat nursing student who couldn’t handle a little severed ear. Unfortunately, all unpleasantness was off-camera. Puking first day on the job is always a rookie mistake.
