A First Look at "Damages"

A First Look at "Damages"

I'm not usually big on legal shows, but I have high hopes that FX's new series, "Damages," will be the exception. The show, which stars Glenn Close as a powerful attorney, was already one of my top 10 reasons to watch TV this summer, and now that I've seen some clips, I'm even more curious to see what FX has up its sleeve with this one.

The preview for "Damages" reminded me a bit of The Devil Wears Prada — albeit a much more serious, higher-stakes version. Close plays Patty Hewes, a high-profile, ruthless lawyer who is determined to win at all costs. Her new protege, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), is a young, innocent, newly engaged associate lawyer who wants to use her law degree for good. Their common opponent is Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), an allegedly corrupt self-made billionaire whom Patty is attempting to bankrupt and personally destroy.

The show looks quite a bit darker than what I was expecting, with more intrigue than your average legal series. "Damages" premieres Tuesday, July 24, but for now you can watch a clip and tell me your first impressions if you

That looks like it might actually be good. Rose Byrne really impressed me in "The Dead Girl" so I am curious to see her in this.

This sounds intriguing! And so much better than the 99 million reality shows that are on these days.

I think this looks interesting as well...although buying Rose Byrne as the innocent may be tough because, for some reason, no matter what I see her in, I picture her character from "Wicker Park" and think "OMG SHE'S SO LYING!!! NOOO!!! SHE WANTS YOUR BOYFRIEND!!!" whew. hopefully I can watch this and work through some of that. :)
