Anyone in here been following this? New show on F/X about high stakes litigation starring Glenn Close. Looks like it could be another winner on F/X. It's taking Rescue Me's old time slot Tuesday's at 10. Looking forward to checking this one out.

The previews are confusing. I can't tell what the show will be like. Best I can figure, it's a cross between the firm and the shield with a little bit of dexter mixed it.

Well I read up on it, cuz I am an F/X fan and it looks like what makes it really different than other legal dramas is that it isnt case jumping week to week. It focuses on one case as the arc of the show, which i think will be cool cuz it will get pretty in depth. Plus you know it will be gritty from the promos, and cuz it's on F/X.

One of my favorite shows of all time was Season one of Murder One. Daniel Benzali, Stanley Tucci and a great supporting cast, great scripts and amazing season-long arc. If this show comes anywhere near that standard (and I can't believe Glenn Close would move to TV without that being the case) bring it on!

Glenn Close already moved to F/X once...she was on The Shield for one season.
I will make a SP, when it's available and check it out.
The promos haven't really been all that exciting...but hey, it's an F/X show.

yea, i am pumped for the big one case arc. and i agree, glenn close wouldnt choose to star in this unless it was quality. she usually does very well choosing roles.

I didn't watch Glenn Close on The Shield, but she is just a great actress....

Unless the scripts/direction are REALLY bad, I would think that the combination of F/X and Glenn Close would be a hit. I hope so.

I will do a season pass and, hopefully, won't have to delete it!

i totally agree. F/X has been so great with their original content and glenn close...well she is glenn close.

found in article about the show in the new yorker:
http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/television/2007/07/23/070723crte_television_franklin

and interestingly enough Damages was co-created by Todd A. Kessler, a writer for the Sopranos for two years and the pilot directed by Allen Coulter who directed a dozen episodes of the Sopranos....another indication of quality!

Thanks for the info.

I'm looking forward to it. I'm not into John from Cincinnati or Meadowlands, so other than Big Love, Rescue Me and Closer, there isn't much out there this summer....
except of course for those Red Sox!

Oh yeah, Mars Attacks and the Stepford Wives were huge winners. Just kiddin'. The show looks like F/X's second dog (behind Dirt) to me. But I'll definitely tune in for an epy or two.

I hate, hate, hate legal shows but I'm looking forward to this even though the promos are confusing. Glenn Close was great on The Shield.

I hadn't heard of this show until I saw a commercial for it on FX earlier today. I've set it up for a season pass.

Yes, he was telling us some "tales from the set" the other night. He said Glenn Close and Ted Danson have both been just super to the rest of the cast and crew.

My friend is not in the pilot episode (was not cast until after it was picked up), but will be in subsequent episodes.
