Wow; just finished watching the first episode of Damages on Showcase. Very ... Cinematic. Impressed with it so far, we'll see where it goes. There was an artful cut early in the show where a lawyer, told that the defendant spent three hours in a spa, asked, coyly, "what was he getting waxed?", followed by a quick zipper noise and a very brief closeup of a tongue licking red lipstick'd lips.
Close is a good actress, and so far, so's the rest of the cast, but we'll see how it goes. Worth a look.
