To win at all costs, sometimes you pay the ultimate price. In the final season of the award-winning legal thriller, powerhouse attorney Patty Hewes (three-time Emmyr and two-time Golden Glober winner Glenn Close) and her ex-prot‚g‚e Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) face off in a fatal double showdown: the wrongful death case against a charismatic, international cyber-hacker (Ryan Phillippe, Flags of Our Fathers), and a devastating custody battle pitting Patty against her own son resulting in a series finale as explosive as it is unexpected. Special guest stars also include Golden Glober winner Jenna Elfman (TV's "Dharma & Greg") and Michael Gaston (Inception).
This is what quality television is all about. I was skeptic about watching Damages when I first heard about it. A law show with a bunch of sociopaths running a courtroom. When I checked out the first episode, I was immediately hooked. Each episode carries on from the last, and it grapples you further into the deception and suspense. And each season has a terrific storyline. The final season doesn't disappoint. I was nervous that the last season might not be as great as previous seasons, but season 5 has just as much quality as any other. It's a shame it had to end. But then again, shows that last forever tend to lose their shine.
