Damages: New York Sucks (2009)
Another amazing well written episode
No wonder that my favorite episode from season 1, "Sort of Like a Family", was co-written with Jeremy Doner, the writer of this episode. Now I'm sure that Mark Fish (whom, in this season had written the best episode yet, "I Agree, ItWasn't Funny" - episode 2.05) and Jeremy Doner are the best in that writing room. At least, my favorites, in terms of depth of character and tingling twists and turns, along with amazing pieces of dialog that you can spend a lot of time thinking about it. The Uncle Pete element was so well balanced with Ellen's new lead and Byrne gives us amazing moments of despair using only her eyes, Tim Olhyphant approach is also so well put!
Damages: I Agree, It Wasn't Funny (2009)
Best episode of the season
Mark Fish really did a wonderful job moving the plot forward, he also co-wrote one of the best episodes of the first season "Sort of Like a Family". I really love how the trio started the season, but what I most love about them is that they're really bright to know when to bring someone else in to shake things up. The episode delivers that thrill of uncertainty and fear with just looks and silence between Glenn Close and Rose Byrne that we hadn't seen yet since the last episodes of the first season and the it puts Patty on the verge of impotence that is delicious to watch. Such great work, Fish. Tate Donovan did an excellent job directing his first episode of the show, the pace couldn't be more right.
