Glen Close has proven once again why she’s queen of the universe… At least at 10PM eastern on Mondays. But really most of the credit goes to the writers of the non-linear story arch the show presents. You think you know what’s going on… then you realize… “Shit, I’m retarded. Why didn’t I see that?” And even if the main plot isn’t your cup of tea, there are a good dozen side plots going on. The addition of Lily Tomlin and Martin Short this season. The writers really took the time to make you fulling understand the characters, that’s always been the show’s strength. Humanize each and every one of them. There are no good goods or bad guys. Just bad and worse. And lol at Ted Danson.
I guess what really draws me into Damages is mostly the fact that it hits really close to home on a lot of levels. From the love of money to the deception and dirtiness that comes from being a lawyer. Being the son of a scambag lawyer I can tell you that a lot of the stuff that goes on in this show, does happen. Think about that.
