    Great! I’ve really fallen in love with the show. I do, however, think the season finale was the weakest episode of the entire season.

    I love Nurse Jackie as well and thought its premiere was sub par, especially with how season 2 ended.

    Shameless rocks! I’ve enjoyed the entire first season on Showtime. I even think it’s better than the original British version.
