Damages strikes an extremely effective balance in being lurid enough to stay interesting without veering too far over the edge and coming across as some sort of Prison Break-like cartoon. Unlike most legal dramas, Damages is an intensely serialized series, focusing squarely on a single case for the entirety of these first thirteen episodes. The writers have a knack for lobbing out a big revelation in each installment, continually maintaining the momentum set into motion in the premiere.
Damages has a unique structure that suits the material particularly well. For one, no meandering subplots creep in as filler.
Virtually everything that happens is either essential to the Frobisher case or to understanding these characters. There are really only three subplots in the entire season: Damages also effortlessly juggles two separate timelines.
