Premiering Sept. 7 on HBO, "My Trip to Al-Qaeda" is a documentary based on journalist and author Lawrence Wright's one-man show of the same name. Composed largely of Wright performing his piece in front of an audience, "My Trip to Al-Qaeda" chronicles his personal experience researching and investigating al-Qaida and Sept. 11 for his Pulitzer Prize–winning book, "The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11"—a tome that has since become the go-to reference on the subject. Wright had previous experience with filmmaking: He had written screenplays for political films such as "Noriega: God's Favorite" and the 1998 Denzel Washington–starrer "The Siege." That film's plot revolved around terrorist attacks that lead the U.S. to declare martial law and place Arab-Americans in detention camps.Imbued with personal reflections as well as a journalist's eye, "My Trip to Al-Qaeda" offers invaluable insight into the historical occurrence, telling the tale in an intimate and humane way. »

House of Cards: Nurse Jackie Wraps Its Sensational Second Season Tonight

7 June 2010 9:30 AM, PDT | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

I just wanted to offer a few quick words about one of my favorite series, Showtime's deliciously dark comedy Nurse Jackie, which wraps up its second season tonight. I've been a ardent viewer of Nurse Jackie since before it premiered and the second season hasn't disappointed at all. While many series suffer through a sophomore slump, Jackie has actually become more acutely pointed and shocking in its second year, deepening its characters rather than making them cartoonish, and giving everyone in the talented cast--Edie Falco, Merritt Wever, Eve Best, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Stephen Wallem, Arjun Gupta, and Peter Facinelli--moments in the spotlight in which to shine. (Deavere Smith's Akalitus has become, over the course of the second season, a personal favorite thanks to some deft shading.) What makes these characters instantly fascinating isn't that they are likeable but because their flaws and quirks are relatable. »

Nurse Jackie Season 2 Episode 6 (Preview): Bleeding

20 April 2010 10:43 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Hell hath no fury like a Nurse Jackie scorned. It didn't take much to drive Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco) back into the pill-distributing arms of ex-All Saints pharmacist and Queens stalker, Eddie Walzer (Paul Schulze). After Kevin (Dominic Fumusa) takes the kids to see Alice in Wonderland with Kaitlyn's mom, aka Kevin's ex-girlfriend, Jackie decides it's time she and Kevin had a little time-out. Typically, that would mean sending the husband to couch, but instead Jackie decides her place is on the living room sofa. Why? Could it be a guilty conscience? Sexual woes are only the tip of Jackie's problematic iceberg. Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) has stationed a security guard by the Pill-o-Matic. Without a steady supply of pills and a husband who may or may not have eyes for another woman, Jackie decides it's time to call off her sexual sanctions with Eddie.

23 March 2010 4:55 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

As Edie Falco returns to her Emmy nominated role of the saintly, yet drug addicted, Jackie Peyton in Nurse Jackie, some time has passed from the events that occurred in the first season finale. Things seemed to have calmed down for Jackie, but a trip to the beach proves otherwise as her daughter, Grace (Ruby Jerins), decides to bring soap to the beach and an unwelcome appearance by Eddie (Paul Schulze) pushes her to “deal with” some guys talking inappropriately in front of her child to which her husband responds, “don’t f–k with her.”

After last year’s incident with a severed ear, Neil Nutterman’s (Victor Garber) accidental coma and the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement currently looking into All Saints’ Hospital because of the amount medicine missing from the newly installed “Pill-o-Matic,” Zoey (Merritt Wever) finds herself in the crosshairs of Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) as these »

Nurse Jackie Season 2 Episode 2 (Lead In): Twitter

22 March 2010 8:28 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Winning the heart of the woman you love can be a difficult task. Nurse Jackie Season 2 opened up with two men whose hearts belonged to Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco). Dr. Cooper (Peter Facinelli) has had his eyes on Jackie ever since she locked her mature lips on the young doctor in Season 1. Now, Coop is trying his best to grab the attention of Jackie by buying her expensive gifts. Sorry Coop, but Jackie simply doesn’t have eyes for you. When expensive gifts failed, Coop tried filing the jilted lover complaint with Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith). Unfortunately, her report simply stated that he was an “a-hole.” When expensive gifts fail, you can always try stalking. At the end of Season 1, Eddie Walzer (Paul Schulze) lost his job at All Saints and discovered that Jackie was married. Surprisingly, that didn’t stop him from going after a married gal. He visited »

TV Review: Edie Falco Returns With Great ‘Nurse Jackie’

22 March 2010 9:58 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – After years without many strong roles for women, 2009 saw the debut of at least three in the great turn by Juliana Margulies on “The Good Wife,” the lead performance by Toni Collette in “United States of Tara” and, the best of them all, Edie Falco in the great “Nurse Jackie,” which returns tonight on March 22, 2010 on Showtime. The second season starts on slightly shaky ground but this is still one of the better shows on television.

Television Rating: 4.0/5.0

Last season ended with Jackie (Edie Falco) in a more disastrous state than usual. After Eddie (Paul Schulze), her pharmacist hook-up who fed both her pill-popping habit and her infidelity, was replaced by a machine, Jackie struggled to get the drugs she needed to keep her balance on the tightrope of her life. When Eddie came to the bar owned by Jackie’s husband Kevin (Dominic Fumusa), the double life she »

Jackie’s in way over her head in season two!

Hey, BFFs! We hope you’re all caught up on Nurse Jackie, because it’s coming back at 10 p.m. tonight on Showtime — and trust us, you won’t want to miss it. If you remember, last May’s season finale left Jackie (Edie Falco) laying on the hospital floor in a drug-induced state, and while tonight’s premiere doesn’t pick up exactly where the finale left off, it does set up plenty of new troubles for our favorite pill-popping nurse.

For one thing, now that Jackie’s secret boyfriend Eddie (Paul Schulze) knows she has a husband, Jackie is really on edge. Trust us — you’ll be feeling her anxiety right through the TV screen when she first sees Eddie in tonight’s premiere. And as daughter Grace’s (Ruby Jerins) own anxiety issues become »

Showtime cliffhangers are notorious for being particularly riveting, and tonight we'll find out what's next for Nurse Jackie (Edie Falco) after she appeared to be on the precipice of an overdose in the season 1 finale. The big questions: Will she no longer have access to drugs? Will Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) be stuck in an elevator again? Will Zoey (Merritt Wever) wear her happy rabbit scrubs again? Oh wait that's right, she already did.

Tonight on the season 2 premiere, Jackie  tries to reconnect with her family following her breakup with Eddie (Paul Schulze). She finds herself on the verge of losing it when breast-groping and Twitter addict Cooper (Peter Facinelli) files a formal complaint against her.

[TV] Nurse Jackie: Season One

1 March 2010 8:15 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s a bit embarrassing to jump into a long-running conversation with a presumptive comment without knowing what has already been said and which points have been established. Southland did it, seemingly ignoring The Shield, and Nurse Jackie has done it, seemingly ignoring countless series (some of which are still going) and what it is they’ve already done. As a whole, Nurse Jackie relies too heavily on the wonderful talent of star Edie Falco to keep it aloft, and as the first season pushes on you realize it does little to blaze a new trail for itself.

Let’s look at the basic plot conventions used in Nurse Jackie:

Jackie has back pains and takes painkillers (grinds up Vicodin and puts it in her coffee, or uses other methods of delivery). Compare this to the major plot point of House, M.D. starring Hugh Laurie with similar chronic »

Blu-Ray Review: Human Drama of Brilliant ‘Nurse Jackie’

25 February 2010 1:27 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Edie Falco gave one of the best performances in the history of television on “The Sopranos” and she’s found another character who could easily enter the pantheon of the format’s most beloved in the amazing title character of Showtime’s dark comedy “Nurse Jackie,” now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

Jackie Peyton lives a daily existence that most of us couldn’t possibly relate to directly but Falco makes this woman one hundred percent believable. It’s an amazing performance. Peyton is a nurse in the ER at New York City’s All Saints Hospital. Based on a journal by a real-life Manhattan ER nurse, “Nurse Jackie” portrays daily life in one of the most unusual places in the world, one that features stoners with third degree burns in very private places, missing body parts, and elderly patients who refuse care.

Peter Facinelli Cries on 'Nurse Jackie' Due to 'Eclipse'

14 January 2010 11:30 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Peter Facinelli recently admitted that juggling between "Nurse Jackie" and "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" brought tears to his eyes. The 36-year-old actor opened up about the matter at the current Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour while promoting the second season of his hit Showtime medical drama series.

When asked whether it is hard to switch gears from portraying Carlisle Cullen to Dr. Fitch Cooper, he recalled the moment he broke down in tears. "I did a scene where I was crying with Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) that came out of me just being emotionally exhausted," he said. "It wasn't written that I was crying and, all of a sudden, in the middle of the scene, I broke down and started crying."

"It felt right for the scene. I did takes that I wasn't crying in, but they felt like, because I was just dumped by Jackie and there was »

11 January 2010 7:48 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Although Peter Facinelli was at the current Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour to promote the upcoming second season of his hit Showtime series, Nurse Jackie (premiering on March 22nd) following the panel presentation, talk immediately turned to his other role, as Dr. Carlisle Cullen, in the Twilight Saga films.

The Cullen patriarch talked about his larger role in Eclipse, which is his favorite book in the series, filming in Vancouver while also working on “Nurse Jackie” in New York, and how he’ll probably learn the status of Breaking Dawn on the internet before he gets the phone call about it from the studio. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Question: Does Carlisle have a lot to do in Eclipse?
