Best, new knitting-while-watching television: Damages with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne.

I didn't think that Season 1 could be followed by anything nearly equal in twisted characters, upended good-guys who are bad and bad-guys who have a flaw that makes them momentarily sympathetic, and a great, strange theme song.

But so far, Season 2 is measuring up.

And it's on Netflix Instant. Which I love very much, because you can go from Damages to Futurama to Downton Abbey. All with no commercials.
