Sadly, I can’t use the FX tag, cause our friends at DirecTV are doing this. Sadlier, unlike FNL, there is no secondary distribution. I wonder if it’s going to be part of the Hulu subscription deal. Hmm...

This is a fine, fine show. Best casting on TV. I was content with how they ended the third season and was ready to accept that as the end. I’m happy it’s coming back...it’s a shame they killed off Tom.

I tried watching this show twice and each time I felt like it was an utter clusterfuck. I guess more Emmies for Streep mainly due to her name.

Wow, Meryl Streep really IS America's greatest actress, if she somehow won Emmys for a television show she was never on.

Despite my Rose Byrne love, I never made it through season one mainly because I just don't like legal shows (Angel season 5 aside. Ahem.)

Angel season 5 deserved an emmy this show doesn't. My apologizes, I tend to get Glenn Close and Streep confused, so that is on me. Is Rose, the one from Get him to the Greek, if so, she is an amazing actress.

I've watched all of Damages as a sidebar to doing mundane spreadsheet tasks at work. It's a solid show, and Glenn Close is clearly very good in her role, but never has been anything that seriously entertained me. If I can access them somehow, I'll watch more seasons in the same halfway manner I've watched the previous ones.

Kim loves this show. I might have loved it if I had gotten into it from the beginning, but I didn't. The nonlinear thing really bugged me. I don't watch TV to PAY ATTENTION. ;-)

I DID pick up Season 1 at Costco and keep thinking I might watch it some day.

Also, I love creepy Darrell Hammond, but that was Season 2, right? This show takes stunt casting to extreme levels but it almost always works.

This news makes me think we'll probably buy some more DVDs in the future, unless I get really good about remembering to ... acquire it by other means when it is made available by those other means. And THAT would probably depend on how badly Kim will want to see it.

Or, you know, we could just get DirecTV. Ahhhh ha ha ha ha ha ha doubtful

Hey we DO have a 101 tag somewhere. I'll stick that one on it.

Creepy Darrell Hammond has nothing on sleazy Martin Short (season 3). And Ted Danson is consistently great as an immature, idealistic, asshole of a billionaire.

Right. I love their trend of taking seemingly harmless, fan friendly actors and turning them into the scum of the Earth. And be totally convincing!

We love this show. It is tough to follow at times, but there is nothing wrong with that. Hopefully Hulu works out, because I am a cable guy. There is always DVD I guess, which is how I watched the first season.
