Glenn Close reaches the end of her run as Patty Hewes, the brilliant and often deceptive law firm chief, in the final round of the show that will be new to many viewers since it ran on the satellite service DirecTV (as opposed to the series' former home, FX).
Here, Patty and her former employee Ellen (Rose Byrne) take opposing sides in a wrongful-death case that involves a cyberhacker (Ryan Phillippe). Patty's personal troubles also play into the drama's ultimate outcome. Jenna Elfman, Judd Hirsch, Janet McTeer and John Hannah also have guest roles. DVD extras: deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)
