Damages: The Greatest Show on Television

DamagesOn the recommendations of a local radio announcer, Claude Simard, I started watching Damages staring Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, Zeljko Ivanek, Tate Donovan and Ted Danson. In the States you can watch this show on FX but in Canada we have to get it from download it from iTunes since it is not broadcast here. If iTunes was not here we would have to download it from P2P networks. This brings a question to mind, If a show is not shown in a country and is not available in said country, is it illegal to download it? I don’t know.

Back to the main reason of this post: Damages. I’m glad I have started watching it because it is the best show on television at this moment. The plot twist and turns all over the place. I don’t know what is going to happen next. Who are the bad guys and who are the good guys anyways? I don’t know and I do want to know, that’s what makes this show great. Every episodes ends with a revelation that shocks us into tuning in the following week. I recommend that you watch it on FX in the U.S. and download it from iTunes in Canada.

I have to say that FX Network has great shows, Damages, Rescue Me, Nip and Tuck and The Shield. Just to show you that most of the best shows on television are not on the four major networks. My favourite five television shows at this moment are 1 Damages, 2 Californication, 3 Madmen, 4 Weeds & 5 Big Brother. To be on this list the show as to have newly aired shows at the writing of this blog post. Big Brother is on the list not because it is a great show but because it is my guilty little pleasures.

I’ll just mention that Claude also recommended for me to watch madmen another great show. If you want to listen to Claude on the radio click on La SuperStation. I’ll just warn you this is a french radio station.

I guess that is it for now, see you next time.
