    This last season was a total dissapointment. It was a one trick pony played over and over again. Ellen has to beat Patty in court, and for this she's willing to turn her back on all scruples, all ethics, all relationships. To get there we have to see endless repetitions of past scenes ad nauseam, which drags out the boring proceedings even more. The wrting is poor, the holes in the plotThis last season was a total dissapointment. It was a one trick pony played over and over again. Ellen has to beat Patty in court, and for this she's willing to turn her back on all scruples, all ethics, all relationships. To get there we have to see endless repetitions of past scenes ad nauseam, which drags out the boring proceedings even more. The wrting is poor, the holes in the plot are beyond belief, and clearly no legal mind vetted this. The characters are now too well known and the lack of redeeming elements makes watching them as interesting as watching one's drearier family members kvetch about the same old thing. Expand

    While the show's certainly grown more tightly plotted in the last several seasons, especially after cutting the number of episodes down to 10 and reducing (often via murder) the number of secondary characters, Damages is still suffering from some seemingly needless bloat.

    Damages proves once again why it is one of the smartest thrillers on TV.
