    This show sounds really good. I saw the seasons of Damages that aired on FX and LOVED them, I’ve been meaning to finish that series. I think I may go start rewatching the pilot now. Maybe by the time I’ve watched all the episodes we’ll have a promo for this. :D

    Glad she’s going to be on series regular on the show. She’s a great actress. Can’t wait to see her on New Girl.

    Great news. I am interested to see who is cast as the black sheep oldest brother. Maybe Bryan Cranston?
