Being addicted is a horrible situation. It becomes a problem which leaves you craving more. So it is with Damages, the TV series that has allowed Glenn Close to receive an Emmy and Golden Globe for her starring role. Several of the writers and actors have received various nominations for the show.

Glenn Close plays Patty Hewes, the lawyer from Hewes and Associates. Once more, she excels at playing the part of a person whom we love to despise. 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. While their personalities are disparate, they agree that they'll never be controlled by anyone else. The characters constantly evolve and the performances by the actors are great.

Damages mixes things that happened in the past, and things that are going to happen along with the current storyline. If you miss even a minute of this show, you are likely to miss a key plot development. You must remain focused to keep up with the twisting storyline as it develops. 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. Also, be ready to lose at least one of your favorite characters. 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.

Now, I ask will my addiction continue? Is it possible for material of this caliber to continue being produced? Could there be enough plot surprises to sustain any more seasons? We can only hope! If the people behind Damages can't keep up the outstanding quality that they've maintained so far, TV will lose one of its most promising shows in decades.

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. A superior block of programming in both digital and hi-def is available from my local Comcast Cable provider. I've been shocked to discover how much more enjoyment I have when viewing Damages via HD. But HDTV isn't all. Comcast provides outstanding Digital Voice and High-Speed Internet service as well. This service is much faster than my old one and I can look up my favorite shows while downloading all I want at lightning fast speed. Plus, with Comcast Digital Voice I can make crystal clear calls nationwide with out paying long distance charges. The Comcast HD Triple Play allows me to have three awesome products for one low monthly price. I located the best promotion 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.
