    Gorgeously acted, written, paced, structured and conceived, "Damages" remains one of the best shows on TV--and maybe the most enjoyably addictive.
  2. This is the best ensemble of any show anywhere, and watching these gifted actors bounce off each other is a joy. Damages proves capable hands can craft a thriller for TV.

    It’s a lot to juggle, but you can count on the payoff to be worth the trouble. Power, weakness, greed, violence--what’s not to like?

    Yet, as rock-solid as the entire cast may be, Damages still belongs to Close, who makes us embrace a character who in other hands might be repellent or, worse, ridiculous.

Rose Byrne seems to have come into her own and there are no longer hints of her Australian accent or her acting class techniques; she's really developed into her character. Glenn Close is priceless, and so far, the clever casting of Lily Tomlin, Martin Short, and Campbell Scott have paid off. Full Review »

After my disappointment with S2 this one seems to have had much more effort in the storytelling and was really well rounded off. Every seemly sidestory grew to become a relevant part of the plot. Fantastic acting as ever. Full Review »
