Excellent show avoids the Hangman’s Noose…

One more time.

Used to be I couldn't stand Glenn Close. Then she took the stick out of her ass. Now I love her.

How can you not like Damages? A TV show that consistently hires such top talent as Ted Danson, William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden, Timothy Olyphant and Campbell Scott as guest stars cannot be, uh… dismissed. Sadly, no one watches the show… So that was exactly what the FX Network was understandably poised to do: Kill one of the best dramas currently on television.

Then suddenly Direct TV stepped up and saved the enterprise this afternoon. According to Daily Variety, “Direct TV has ordered two 10-episode seasons. The first season will air next summer in the U.S.– with the second series launching in the summer of 2012. Glenn Close and Rose Byrne are confirmed to return with other thesps set to sign on soon.”

Henceforth, Damages will appear solely on Direct TV’s original programming channel (Channel 101).

I don’t have Direct TV. But that’s okay, there’s always DVD.

I will not be denied my Rose Byrne!

Don't you dare ask me if Rose is related to John Byrne.
