What I'm Watching: Damages

Damages: Season 1, Episode 5 "A Regular Earl Anthony" (C)

Frobisher seems all too calm and manipulative about his case, which is surprising given his usually nervous aura around his family (Patty's personal life also shares this enormous discrepancy with her professional persona). I do feel sympathy for Tom, but I just cannot shake the feeling that Patty is simply too evil to be real. I have a suspicion the show may have become far more intriguing and stable if Tom had gone out on his own with Ellen under his wing. In any case, there is nothing smarter than a public figure strolling the street in the middle of the night wearing a bright shiny bow tie commanding arond his thugs while they beat up and threaten someone.
