Season Info

"Damages" moved from FX to DirecTV for its fourth season, in which Ellen (Rose Byrne), now working at her mentor's firm, recruits Patty (Glenn Close) to help her investigate High Star, a private security firm working for the U.S. military in Afghanistan and headed up by the formidable Howard T. Erickson (John Goodman). While building their case, they tangle with a ruthless mercenary (Dylan Baker), who's determined to keep the pair away from a blood trail that could lead right back to Erickson.

DirecTV's original programming efforts take a marked step forward with the satellite operator's decision to keep Damages alive.

Nothing else seems to have changed, most critically the exquisite dance between ruthless attorney Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and her protegee Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne).

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.

Trust me, Damages is worth it. And for those without access to DirecTV, worth the wait.

The one enduring thing I like most about Damages is that it's basically summer camp for character actors.

While a bit deliberately paced, a good start, with (as always) an excellent guest-star roster.

As has always been the case, Damages remains a mystery-thriller whose characters and their psychological quirks are more intriguing than the plot.

Lots of talent and strong performances, but it has increasingly seemed to strain to up its stakes in its one-case-a-season format.
