  1. The second season has style and suspense, but it’s harder to keep viewers guessing when the characters are so familiar, and the time-scrambling format is no longer as novel.
  2. Toward the end of the second episode, two characters who have no business acting chummy with each other get in the back of a car together and do exactly that. And rather than make me eager to pop in my screener of the third episode (which I did, eventually), it just killed all the buzz I had built up to that point.

    I love that it always leaves you hanging and thinking you have figured it out and it still manages to surprise you.

    I love Damages but not this season. While S1 and S3 were well thought out, well paced and built up to a satisfying finale, this season wasI love Damages but not this season. While S1 and S3 were well thought out, well paced and built up to a satisfying finale, this season was overly complicated, too many characters and an ending that just seemed put together with no real planning behind it. It would be useful also if people didn't rush to give Damages a 10 score after one opening episode! Full Review »
