Damages
« on: February 09, 2010, 08:54:14 AM »
So there appears to be no thread in place for this show. Anyone else watching? Because I need to discuss it with people, dammit.



This is a criminally underwatched show. And frankly, up until last month, I was part of the problem. Finally, Season 1 rolled around on the Netflix queue and by the end of the pilot, I was sold. What an insane (in a good way), confusing (in a good way), infuriating (in the best way) show. Each season is a perfect murder mystery and it's a law show without any of that boring courtroom stuff.

Also, it has one of my favorite theme songs:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/oIOTeIix-2c&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/oIOTeIix-2c&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;</a>

If you're watching, discuss. If you're not, rent seasons one and two (note: 2's a bit disappointing) then catch up with the current season (we're only three eps in). This season is already incredible.

Courtney, I'm just like you. I overlooked this show for a while and just these last couple of weeks have gone through Season 1 and am about done with Season 2. I thought it would be some kind of court room drama but it's so much more. The first season is so fantastic too. The entire cast is really great, Close, Byrne, Donavan and Danson are all at the top of their games, along with that brilliant supporting performance by Big Love's Zeljko Ivanek as Danson's lawyer in Season 1. And yeah, I love the opening credits.

Well, some of us have FX and then don't and then do....

Has Craig Bierko joined the cast yet?   :)  He's supposed to but I don't know when.

Watched the premiere. I liked it, but I'm kind of sad that

I know, he's probably my favorite character (next to Psycho Lila - bring her back!) but at least this season looks to involve him so heavily.

Yeah. What exactly happened to Lila? We really didn't hear anything about her after the cops talked to her.

Yeah, I assume she found someone else to stalk after David died.

Courtney, what have you thought of this season so far? I think that they may never be able to top their first season, but I think this one has been pretty good. I liked the whole twist with Ellen's parent's too this last episode. Should be interesting.

Great last few episodes to end a very solid season. I'd probably rank it right behind Season 1 as my favorite. That last episode was jam packed with information.

Yeah, I was amazed they got all that into the finale, but it was really great.

Just started watching via netflix streaming.  I don't care much for Glenn Close, but I've gained a new respect for Ted Danson after watching Bored To Death.  I watched the first episode of Damages last night.  It was pretty good.

I'll keep watching.  Hope I enjoy it!
