Damages 1.01 Damages Pilot (2007)
Ambitious, fresh-faced lawyer Ellen Parsons is thrilled to become the associate to feared, high-profile lawyer Patty Hewes just as Hewes is warming up a multi-million dollar civil action against Arthur Frobisher. A rival lawyer firm warns her against allowing Patty into her life. Six months later, she is running under-dressed and bload-soaked in the street.
Largely exemplary pilot episode which sets up our protagonists (it would be a stretch to call them characters at this time) and does more than enough to keep us interested in this episode and to make us want to watch every other episode of the story to see what happened, why and what happens.
This Damages episode contains bad language, mild swear words and unpleasant and extremely gory scenes and a sex scene.
