glenn close gets her ‘damages’ on!

good evening everybody! y’all know i’m a total whore for pretty much any show on FX (especially nip/tuck & dirt) and oh they’ve got a goody coming…the new legal drama damages starring the one & only glenn close! she plays patty hewes a high-stakes litigator – oh my gosh – she is ruthless & tougher than nails – making cruella de vil look like an angel! i had the pleasure of screening the first episode (airing july 24th @ 10pm) right off the bat the series starts with a bang – i was quite impressed – i’m dying to know what will happen next! besides anything with ms. close is usually a guaranteed good time – glenn is an excellent actress – she’s always fierce and damages is no exception!

i also really enjoyed rose byrne‘s character ellen parsons who plays the new girl at the firm – still pretty wet behind the ears – the show immediately sets-up a ‘what the hell happened to her?!?’ i hope the rest of the season is as exciting as the first episode! no worries – i’ll make sure to remind you guys about the premiere (two weeks from this coming tuesday) below are some billboard shots that you may have seen in NYC or LA – plus there’s a great trailer – totally worth checking out! popbytes over & out for tonight – i can’t believe monday is rolling by again so soon – xxoo!
