"Damages" - Still Jaded, Still Great
The 3rd season of “Damages” begins tonight, Monday January 25. I’m sure there will be a brand new scenario involving a new set of evil machinations – I will love it.
This TV show, on the FX channel, will again star Glenn Close, as tough lawyer Patty Hewes and it will probably be as terrific and full of plot twists as its previos seasons. The ambitious, powerful characters that are part of Patty’s world are always so smart, so devious, so manipulative, so dishonest but, all their questionable deeds are done with a half smile. It sort of undercuts your faith in your fellowman. (Who said, ” If you’re looking for loyalty, get a dog” ?)
However, meanness and intrigue can be addictive and entertaining – its like watching a bunch of snakes in a barrel. Like seeing an accident and not being able to turn away, no matter how gory.
“Damages” may not be “family” TV, but, it is always fascinating TV.
