I finally made my way through Damages this past weekend. It was a really great show. Glenn Close and Ted Danson lead a great cast. What I loved the most was the non-linear storyline. The show began with the main character bloody and running through the streets of New York before we cut back to six months early. As the episodes unfold, we get little bits of the future story involving the death of her fiance. The main story of the lawsuit against Sam Malone never really gave any clues as the the future murder. In the penultimate episode of the season, time caught up with itself and the whole story was unveiled. By the end, five people and a dog got murdered. But when you are dealing with two billion dollars, what are the lives of five people and a dog?
They tried to get something set up for a second season, but I can't believe it could be nearly as compelling as the first. If you get a chance to watch it on DVD, you won't be disappointed.
