What I'm Watching: Damages

Damages: Season 1, Episode 2 "Jesus, Mary and Joe Cocker" (C+)

I am very much skeptical that Katie is smart enough to lie repeatedly to the extremely intimidating figure that is Patty Hewes while she seems so hapless in her prior conduct with Frobisher. I like the humanizing of Frobisher, and all these mixed messages about his guilt help him become a more layered character. It is nice to see Zeljko Ivanek (Andre Drazen on the first season of "24") getting some work, though I really cannot make out Ray's accent. I am not terribly sad to discover that Lame Boyfriend bites the bullet in the end, and I do applaud the show for killing off, or rather scheduling the killing off a, a major character. And as much as I am a fan of Olive Garden, as a former waiter there, but actually stopping to say the slogan of the restaurant after the happy couple receives a gift card is ridiculous. I forgot to check if there was an Olive Garden commercial hidden in there, but come on, be a little subtle!
