'Damages' - 'It's Not My Birthday' Recap

Damages: It's Not My Birthday
(S03E05) "It's not my birthday." - Patty to Alex

Hmmm ... such cryptic messages in this week's episode of 'Damages.' First the wacky dream. Dreaming about a horse in your home probably isn't so crazy, unless you're Patty Hewes and the dream includes bloody hands and feet.

Let's analyze: Patty harking back to a more innocent childhood perhaps? Nah, too straightforward. Maybe the horse signifies Danielle's child, and Ellen's message that "it's a big responsibility" and "are you sure you're ready for it" denotes Patty's willingness to take care of Danielle and her child. Well, just the child now. The "blood on her hands" isn't so hard to figure out, but her feet? It must suck to be Patty with all that running around in her head.

Damages, Patty Hewes, HorseHmmm ... what's it all mean? On 'Damages' (Mon., 9PM ET on FX), Patty Hewes dreamed that she got a horse for her birthday. Only there sat Ellen with her cryptic messages about the horse being a big responsibility, and "are you sure it's what you really want?"

Ok, we'll go with the horse dream. Not that unusual, right? Unless you're Patty Hewes and look down to see that your feet are all bloody. Karma's a bitch, Patty, even in your dreams.

'Damages' - 'Don't Throw That at the Chicken' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 16th 2010 1:45PM
Damages: Don't Throw That at the Chicken(S03E04) There was family dysfunction all around in this episode of 'Damages.' We had Patty dealing with her son, Ellen dealing with her sister (and jerk of a dad), Tom dealing with his in-laws (who seem like very sweet people), and the ongoing strife within the Tobin family.

And swirling around it all was Patty Hewes, who always knows more than she lets on -- but maybe not enough, as evidenced by her phone call to ... someone in that least scene.

'Damages' Season 3 Preview: Ripped From the Madoff Headlines

by Bryan Reesman, posted Jan 25th 2010 11:30AM
If you thought the first two seasons of 'Damages' were intense, things get amped up in the season 3 opener.

We won't spoil the shocking surprises, but there's plenty of new cast firepower as well, including Martin Short playing a tough-as-nails lawyer to a Madoff-like family called the Tobins, who are struggling with the fallout of their patriarch's fraudulent activities. Naturally that means plenty of potential sparring time with Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), especially with billions of dollars at stake in the season-long tale. Things will get ugly, which will be fun for the cast and creators.

'Damages' Season 3 Preview and Predictions

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 24th 2010 4:15PM
Damages Season 3 PremiereSeason three of the hit FX show 'Damages' premieres Monday, Jan. 25, at 10 PM ET. The legal thriller has a history of making us think things are going one way, and then spinning the story in a completely different direction.

The season two finale is a good example of that. All season long, we'd been teased about a showdown between Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). But did it turn out the way you thought it would?

If you haven't watched season two yet, read no further. Spoilers after the jump.

Despite Three Shows, Ted Danson Only Works Six Months a Year

by Bryan Reesman, posted Jan 22nd 2010 3:00PM
He's on three acclaimed television shows -- 'Damages,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and 'Bored To Death' -- yet Ted Danson confessed to AOL that he's not as busy as you'd think.

"To be honest, I work about six months out of the year," the actor told AOL while in town Tuesday night to promote the new 'Damages' season 2 DVD release and the season 3 premiere.

"I have family weddings and have been moving into a new house, but I haven't been working that much. Truthfully. It looks like it. I could write a book, 'How to Work Half the Year'. Except when you work, when you act, it is so much easier than the real-life part. I've never been so busy in my life when I'm not working."

Glee and Breaking Bad top the Satellite Awards

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 22nd 2009 9:01AM
breaking_bad_desertThe winners of 2009 Satellite Awards were announced on Sunday in Los Angeles, and when you look at the winners on the television side, you have to like the choices. Most of these shows and actors have been on our year-end "best" lists, and if I were to guess, I think you'll see many of these names on the Prime time Emmy nomination roster.

The first thing that jumped out to me was Glee. The Fox musical dramedy was a winner in five different categories, including actors Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Kristin Chenoweth -- for her guest role -- recognized. And the show was named Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical.

The two often have a competitive, complicated relationship.

Emmy Wish List: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 14th 2009 2:01PM
Emmys_ABC_awardsThe actresses who have been competing for the Primetime Emmy award in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category these past few years are some of the top names in the business. Two-time Oscar winner Sally Field for Brothers & Sisters, multiple Emmy winner -- including last year's award -- Glenn Close for Damages. Previous winner Mariska Hargitay for Law & Order: SVU. Oh, yes, there's also Saving Grace's Holly Hunter, another former Oscar winner, and Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer.

All these ladies are worthy of winning nominations again, and it wouldn't be surprising to see one or all of them nominated. But if I were to have a say, there are some other women I hope to see recognized when the Primetime Emmy nominations are announced this Thursday.

Damages: I lied, too (season premiere)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 7th 2009 11:15PM

Glenn Close (L) and Rose Byrne (R) star in 'Damages' on FX.
(S02E01) "Actually, I take that back. You should be scared. You should be terrified." - Ellen

Payback's a bitch, ain't it? Not if you're Ellen Parsons - then it's a slow, methodical, patience-testing process where it apparently takes six months before you get to shoot a gun. And thus begins the second chapter in the twisted law legacy of Ellen Parsons. After one episode, David Connor's killer is no longer the issue at the top of everyone's mind.

I love the Damages season two poster

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 24th 2008 8:39AM
Damages season two posterI just finished watching season one of FX's Damages and, wow! What a gripping, twisty-turny show that had me hooked the whole way. Glenn Close acts the socks off anyone in close range, but the rest of the cast are no slouches either.

I've gained new respect for Ted Danson in his role as Arthur Frobisher, a high-stakes entrepreneur who's gotten himself into some pretty deep doo-doo. And Rose Byrne as the young-pup attorney Ellen is like watching a steely-eyed carp in the making.

I can't wait for season two to start on Jan. 7 at 10 PM, but until then I'll have to appease myself with Jonathan's early look and this poster.

TV journalists make their Emmy picks

by Brett Love, posted Sep 12th 2008 9:26AM

neil patrick harris - how i met your motherOver at the L.A. Times, Tom O'Neil has put together two teams to predict the Emmys. One consists of writers who cover TV, including our pal from AOL, Maggie Furlong. The other is filled with award nuts, like O'Neil. The teams found a lot of common ground, with overwhelming agreement on Mad Men for Best Drama and 30 Rock for Best Comedy. They also seem pretty set on Glenn Close (Damages) for Best Actress, Drama and Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) for Best Actor, Comedy.

Those all sound like reasonably safe bets. Things get a little more interesting when you look at some of the other categories. Best Actor, Drama looks to be a three way race between Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Hugh Laurie (House), and James Spader (Boston Legal). All solid choices, to be sure, but the most surprising part of the category is that Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), who should win, only garnered one vote. Read on past the jump for more of the categories.
