Devotees of "The Big Chill" will find an automatic lure in this round of the FX series which starts year three next week though Glenn Close and William Hurt have much different characters here. Close continues as enigmatic, effective attorney Patty Hewes, who reluctantly agrees to represent a man from her past (Hurt) who's suspected in the murder of his wife.
As that case unfolds, Patty's employee Ellen (Rose Byrne) works with federal agents in a vendetta to bring Patty down. Ted Danson and Tate Donovan also return from the first season, with Marcia Gay Harden and Timothy Olyphant ("Deadwood") among other cast additions.
DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by cast and crew members on selected episodes; deleted scenes; season-one recap.*** (Not rated: AS, P, V)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
