Not a lot of great summer fare on the tubes, outside of ‘The Closer’ on TNT and ‘Rescue Me’ on FX. A newer offering by FX ‘Damages‘ starring Glenn Close, Ted Danson and a bunch of ‘those guys*’ is a fun show about dirty-double-crossing’ lawyers (i don’t always think that is a redundancy) and at least one good lawyer and a lot of shady goings-on. Told partly in flashback, with the protagonist bloodied and arrested, the show really really makes me want to find out how all this unfurls. Good summer escapist fun..
Damages is on at 9:00 PM CST on Tuesday nights with a lot of chances throughout the week to catch up.
*those guys: men and women you recognize from numerous TV appearances, but you can’t quite remember their name.
