    love this show! my mom and I watch this together. same with The Big C, but I don't love that show quite as much as I used to.

    definitely a huge fan of Nurse Jackie though.

    Don't know Santi...I like an unrepentant soul as much as the next, but when it comes to shows that make you feel unclean Showtime just has the market locked. Nurse Jackie(who I gotta tell you is sooooooooooo unattractive), Californication(that man has no soul), and even Shameless revel too much in the darkness of human nature. It's way too one note for me and just skeeves me out. I love a troubled character (Theon Greyjoy) but there has to be some possibility that they could find redemption. Showtime's dramedies just really leave me hopeless for the most part. Even Weeds, that show with Don Cheadle and Big C(hey it's a heartwarming story about cancer everyone). I know...it seems hypocritical that I love Breaking Bad and others, yet I think it's different mainly because shows like BB don't revel and glorify in seedy human behavior. There are consequences and repurcussions. I do not see enough of that with Nurse Jackie etc.

    Not if I'm the next. Clearly, you need more Russian literature in your life. In the rare circumstance that the story has a light at the end of the tunnel, it is a train. Nurse Jackie is "The Care Bears" by comparison to much of the stuff I read as a kid.

    This is the opening paragraph of a short story. I believe this was my assigned reading in first or second grade. This is the cheery opening paragraph:

    In one of the outlying streets of Moscow, in a gray house with white columns and a balcony, warped all askew, there was once living a lady, a widow, surrounded by a numerous household of serfs. Her sons were in the government service at Petersburg; her daughters were married; she went out very little, and in solitude lived through the last years of her miserly and dreary old age. Her day, a joyless and gloomy day, had long been over; but the evening of her life was blacker than night.
    Here's the link to the rest of the story, in case one day you're feeling overly joyful.

    wow...yeah, so Nurse Jackie is Three Stooges to you. Got it. I never thought I would find myself on the optimistic re:human nature side of things. You do learn something new every day.
