    This is TV's best and brightest at the moment, and a wonderful tribute to New York's resurgent TV production industry.
  3. Forget everything I ever wrote about "Mad Men." This is the best drama series on television.

    It only takes two episodes to demonstrate that this season is going to be another wild ride, maybe even one that's a little more nuanced and unpredictable than the first.
  5. 75
    All in all, a great good time with not one single character to like. Now, that's entertainment!
  6. The show's trademark time shifts continue, although it's initially unclear if they're connected to the season one story that carries over or to the season two plot.
  7. 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.

    Best Show On TV!!! The heart of this series is the script. The dialogue of this show is smart, suave, exciting, and of the quality of a Coen Best Show On TV!!! The heart of this series is the script. The dialogue of this show is smart, suave, exciting, and of the quality of a Coen Brothers screenplay. The production is movie-like and provides twists and turns that leave you shocked, entertained, and fully engaged. The terrific acting (especially Close, Hurt, and Olyphant) is better than some of the best peformances in Oscar-Winning movies. Everyone down to guest stars turn in a career best performance. This is for people who respect the excellence of movies and television. Not To Miss (unless you are a total freak). Should be 11 out of 10. Expand

    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! Expand
