Overview

Season one of the dense and time-tangled Glenn Close legal thriller Damages begins with a flash-forward: Ellen Parsons Rose Byrne, a brilliant and, at that moment, very bedraggled Manhattan lawyer, has just discovered the bludgeoned body of her fiancé, medical resident David Connor Noah Bean. An attempt on Ellen's life is made as well, and both attacks stem from her association with Patty Hewes Close, a power litigator who uses devilish tactics to fight on the side of angels. Six months prior to David's death, Ellen joins Hewes & Associates to work on a class-action suit brought by former employees of Arthur Frobisher Ted Danson, a corporate shark whom they accuse of selling his company -- and their pensions -- out from under them. As it happens, David's sister, Katie Anastasia Griffith, a talented young chef, catered a Frobisher event in Florida the night before he dumped his company's stock. Katie also had a fling that night with waiter Gregory Malina Peter Facinelli, who is later befriended by Frobisher's lawyer, Ray Fiske Zeljko Ivanek, whose folksy Southern charm masks demons. As the Frobisher case plays out over the season, Ellen is arrested for David's murder; Patty's loyal No. 2 at the firm, Tom Shayes Tate Donovan, struggles to emerge from under her shadow; and a number of characters emerge from the shadows, notably "Uncle Pete" McKee Tom Aldredge, Patty's avuncular Mr. Fix-It and her actual uncle; George Moore Peter Riegert, a former SEC official with ties to Frobisher; and freelancing NYPD detective Rick Messer David Costabile.

    A Wonderful Waste of Your Time
