Since "Nurse Jackie" debuted in 2009, there has been quite a bit of talk about the decision by Showtime to categorize the program as a comedy. Gold Derby founder Tom O’Neill has been more vocal than most that the show is not a comedy and and says that Showtime only categorizes it thus so that it can win awards. It’s time someone rise up and defend this poor helpless show and prove that “Nurse Jackie” is, without a doubt, a comedy. One of the strongest influences of my opinion on this matter is that my mother is a nurse. As I grew up, I came to understand many of the crazy things that one encounters when working in the medical field and the type of mindset that is required to be a productive person in that field. You have to have a kind of warped sense of the world »
