Nurse Jackie | Edie Falco

A new Showtime series, starring Edie Falco. I download episodes to my computer. At first I was initially interested in Edie Falco.

To change the world you need to just stand up and move forward, taking responsibility for yourself and the powers of choice that you posses.

Such cowards thrive on good news and hope, something they can poison. The most popular television in the ameriKa.
