Nearly 18 months after it was last shown on British TV, Nurse Jackie finally returns for its sixth season (which was itself shown on American TV around 18 months ago). I quite liked season 4, and I’ve reviewed every episode so far, but I’m not sure I’m even going to be watching this time around: the mood’s gone off me, to be honest (Wednesday, 10.10pm, Sky Atlantic).
And the USA Network’s Satisfaction slips quietly onto British screens tomorrow as well, for the first episode of a ten-ep season. It stars Matt Passmore as Neil, a married man who finds his wife in bed with a male sex worker. For some reason which will no doubt be explained in the show, Neil then decides to give escort work a try himself. It doesn’t sound as if we’re a million miles from Hung. Reviews have been ok-ish, and the show has been renewed for a second season. I think I’m going to pass, but my guess is that this is the sort of show that will really work for some viewers (Wednesday, 9pm, Sony Entertainment Television).
Coming soon: Justified, Empire, The Leftovers, and Orphan Black (and perhaps the most bizarre scheduling decision in history).
