First on air in 2007 and departing in 2012, it’s the show people keep telling me they have only just discovered, but now they are hooked.
And who can blame them?
Glenn Close and Rose Byrne as fierce femmes going toe to toe, a malevolent thriller with twists and turns -and bends in time- Damages has it all.
Aside from a few flip phones (!) it also doesn’t date too much. But if you’re going to get on board make sure you do it from the first season. The set-up to the relationship between the two leads is crucial stuff, plus the early seasons were definitely stronger than later seasons (5 star review for S2).
The next series by Glenn Kessler, Todd A. Kessler and Daniel Zelman is yet to be revealed, but if it’s anything like this one then bring it on.
