Drug dependence can be awful. Soon the drugs you use are not enough and you need more and more. Damages, which has won star Glen Close both an Emmy and Golden Globe, shows this truth in a brutal light. Writers, Daniel Zelma, brothers Glen and Todd Kessler, Zeljko Ivanek, and actors Ted Dansen and Rose Byrne all have been nominated at one time or another for their powerful work on this great show.

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. Here appears Ellen Parsons, portrayed by actress Rose Byrne, who is a newly-minted graduate that turned down lucrative offers from other firms for an opportunity to work with Patty Hewes. While their personalities are disparate, they agree that they'll never be controlled by anyone else. As these characters evolve, you see some amazing performances.

Almost overwhelming at first, Damages interweaves multiple time lines into a single story arc to weave together its compelling yarn. It's not a show you can leave for a moment without missing something, often vital to the plot. 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. There are times when a character will only be on the show for a moment, but they may come back later. And don't be shocked when one of the characters you love is lost. You never know who will return for the next in the series. The first season consists of 13 episodes, with many stars who will likely not return.

Will I continue to be addicted to Damages? Is it possible for the show's creators to continue to generate such enjoyable material? Are there still more twists and turns left to fill another season or two with such intense intrigue? Wishing is all we can do! If you love Damages like I do, make sure you tune in every week so we can keep this tremendous show on the air and going strong for years to come.

I would certainly recommend purchasing a HDTV, so you can enjoy your show in the best quality possible. My local cable provider Comcast Cable offers a great lineup of digital and High Definition channels. HD has changed my whole viewing experience. I can't believe how much I was missing. Comcaset provides both High Speed Internet service and Digital Voice to its customers as well. Now I can research all my favorite shows and download music and video much faster that I did with my old dsl service. In addition, Comcast Digital Voice lets me make long-distance calls with excellent sound quality for no per-minute charges. I only have to pay one monthly flat rate for all three great services by taking advantage of the Comcast HD Triple Play bundle. The best promotion is available on the Internet. I would highly recommend Comcast to anyone who is looking for Digital Phone service at a flat-rate fee, HD digital television, or fast broadband High Speed Internet service.
