Being addicted is a horrible situation. It takes over your mind and purpose, the more you have the more you want. Damages, which has won star Glen Close both an Emmy and Golden Globe, shows this truth in a brutal light. Several of the writers and actors have received various nominations for the show.

A high profile lawyer from Hewes and Associates, the revered and reviled Patty Hewes, is played by Glenn Close. Once more, she excels at playing the part of a person whom we love to despise. 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 characters clash, neither will submit to another's will. As these characters evolve, you see some amazing performances.

Damages mixes things that happened in the past, and things that are going to happen along with the current storyline. It seems that every minute of the show could reveal a significant plot twist which keeps you glued to your seat. Attention is a prerequisite for keeping up with Damages' complicated plot. You need to keep your eyes peeled at all times. Take for example the moment in the shows beginning episode when Ray Fiske examines the collar worn by Saffron. Characters come and go and you are expected to remember them. And don't be shocked when one of the characters you love is lost. From show to show you'll never know who will make it to next week. 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.

Is my addiction going to be prolonged? Is it possible for the show's creators to continue to generate such enjoyable material? Could there be enough plot surprises to sustain any more seasons? Never give up hope! 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.

One suggestion I have for viewers, if you can, I recommend investing in a TV that supports high definition so you can enjoy Damages in the highest quality sound and picture. Comcast Cable offers a great lineup of digital and High Definition channels. The show is even better when it is in high definition. 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. 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 bundle allows me to subscribe to all three excellent services by paying a single monthly flat rate. The best promotion is available on the Internet. I recommend Comcast as a top-notch provider for broadband, cable, and digital phone service.
