    All the flash backs, repeated endlessly, look like lazy writers trying to fill in the hour for more commercials. And the flash forwards are very irritating. Not to mention the *endless* coincidences. Not to mention Glen Close overacting constantly. Not to mention the incredible negligence in simple security consciousness of the main characters (e.g. cellphones and other spying).

Well, I will mention it: DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD it is to hit a car at a cross-street dead center? Jeeeeezus. What a load of crap this show is. Expand

    Seasons 1, 2, 3 were much better. I hated the setting/plot of this season: corrupt security firm in Afghanistan war gruesomely tortures and kills various victims. Ugh. Hard to watch sometimes. Also, Rose Byrne: her performance is flat, self-aware, and annoying. I know that she has a long acting resume, but I feel like she needs some refresher acting classes.

Sometimes I think Glen Close chews the scenery a little, but she's good to watch. I'm going to watch season 5 (on Netflix) because I liked seasons 1 and 3 a lot. Expand

    The poisoned relationship of attorneys Ellen Parsons and Patty Hewes has gone slack. But The supporting cast is superb. [8 Aug 2011, p.40]

    If you're one of the people who've so far managed the suspension of disbelief required to accept that Close's Patty Hewes could yet again find a way to pull protege Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) back into her orbit, Season 4 shouldn't disappoint.

    Damages returns to spiteful, vindictive and wildly entertaining life Wednesday night after resuscitation by satellite-television provider DirecTV.
