Addiction can be a terrible thing

Addiction can be a terrible thing. It becomes an addiction prompting you to yearn for more. Damages, which has won star Glen Close both an Emmy and Golden Globe, shows this truth in a brutal light. Close is not the only one on Damages so honored. Many of the actors, creators, and writers on Damages have been recognized for their outstanding work.

Glenn Close plays Patty Hewes, the lawyer from Hewes and Associates. She, again, is the person you love to hate, a part she portrays so well. And then Ellen Parsons, played by Rose Byrne, shows up. She’s a recent graduate who many firms scout, but prefers to work for Patty Hewes. They have very different personalities, and neither likes being told what to do. The characters constantly evolve and the performances by the actors are great.

The creators of Damages use innovative techniques to intersperse past events, the present, and the future in a unique presentation that just simply works. It seems that every minute of the show could reveal a significant plot twist which keeps you glued to your seat. You need to stay alert in order to follow the twists in the plot. You need to keep your eyes peeled at all times. For instance, take a good look at Saffron’s collar when Ray Fiske does in the pilot. A character might appear briefly, then return, assuming you remember him or her. You should be aware that at least one person you like will be gone. You never know who will return for the next in the series. There are thirteen programs in the first season, and some of the best actors will likely not be in the second season, except in flashbacks.

Will I continue to be addicted to Damages? Can the writers keep coming up with such great material? Could there be enough plot surprises to sustain any more seasons? We can only hope! TV will lose one of the best series to debut on the small screen in years if the writers and producers can match the quality of the first season in the second.

I would certainly recommend purchasing a HDTV, so you can enjoy your show in the best quality possible. A superior block of programming in both digital and hi-def is available from my local Comcast Cable provider. The show is even better when it is in high definition. But HDTV isn’t all. Comcast provides outstanding Digital Voice and High-Speed Internet service as well. My previous DSL service did not permit me to download a/v files or keep up with my personal favorite programs as quickly as this service does. I also got rid of long distance fees when calling anywhere in the nation with crystal clear Comcast Digital Voice service. The Comcast HD Triple Play allows me to have three awesome products for one low monthly price. The best promotion is available on the Internet. For all your entertainment and communications needs I suggest Comcast Cable if its available in your area.
