Damages comes back in July too.
The show is literally one of the best written shows ever. People tout The Wire and Breaking Bad, but if you havn't seen Damages yet, i suggest you do so. Glenn Close is amazing in her role of Patty Hewes, and Rose Byrne shows her talents and sometimes outshines the amazing cast that the shows generally brings. It's had Martin Short, Ted Dansen, Marcia Gay Harden, Timothy Olyphant, Lily Tomlin, William Hurt, and this coming season John Goodman.
Show me a show that's had a better cast than this.
The show is about a cut throat lawyer who takes on class action cases and gets entangled in conspiracies that eventually boil over and and threaten to decimate Patty (Close) and Ellen (Byrne) strained relationship.
Make no mistake, there is no good guy or bad guy in this show. It's not black and white like most shows, it's basically evil and pure evil.
All in all, after getting mail from DirecTV about Damages returning, I've been stoked for it more so than Breaking Bad.
