You fell in love with Edie Falco as Carmella Soprano on HBO’s The Sopranos and now you can fall all in love with her all over again in Showtimes’ Nurse Jackie. All seven seasons were added at the same at the same time at the en 2015 so you can binge-watch the entire season at once without having to wait years to see how the story of nurse Jackie Payton ends.

Jackie is a great ER nurse who really runs things in her New York City hospital, but her personal life is a mess. She’s addicted to pills, she’s cheating on her husband and trying to raise her young daughters who are undoubtedly affected by the mess their mom has created.

Falco won the Emmy for her portrayal of the troubled nurse and was nominated five other times and has four Golden Globe nominations as well.
