ANSWERS! Damages, BBC One, 10.35pm

Finally, our hard work and dedication is going to be paid off. We hope. After thirteen heart-thumping, gut-wrenching, brain-scratching weeks, Damages reaches its climax tonight. Well, the climax of series one, but we have every faith they'll tie up at least most of the plot threads, or else we'll be tracking the writers down with spiky bookends.

This series, rubbish timeslot aside, has been one of our biggest loves of 2008. We loved the acting, the tension, the trying to figure out just what-the-hell-was-going-on. After last week, the mystery of who killed David was (solved (well, we think), but not the mystery of what will happen to Ellen, or of the grave Patty was visiting, or of what Katie Connor ACTUALLY knows, and of course, we don't know what the outcome of the whole case is going to be.

Glenn Close and Ted Danson have put in amazing performances as Patty Hewes and Ted Frobisher, and the supporting cast have been equally great. We could do without the Ellen storyline invoking The Devil Wears Prada quite so much, but hopefully that will all change for any future series.

We are very glad we stuck through this, and even more glad we managed to avoid spoilers from all our friends who sneakily got ahead of the game. Let's hope our perseverance pays off (and that any future series are scheduled more sensibly).

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
