With the second season of the legal thriller Damages, the creators, writers, cast, and crew have accomplished a minor miracle by producing 13 episodes that match--and, at times, surpass--the level of nail-biting drama and suspense that made the show's freshman season one of the best in 21st-century television. The core cast is back for this round--which is something of a surprise, given that novice lawyer Rose Byrne is convinced that her legal-eagle boss (Glenn Close) is responsible for the murder of her fiancé. The story neatly weaves together a murder mystery involving an old flame (William Hurt) of Close's, Byrne's collaboration with federal agents (led by Mario Van Peebles, who also directs the season's fourth episode, "Hey! Mr. Pibb!"), and Hurt's involvement in an environmental scandal that implicates a major corporation. The threads come together in impressive fashion, and the quality of the writing and direction is matched at every turn by the cast, which also includes Marcia Gay Harden as Close's opposing council; Tate Donovan as Byrne's saintly confidante; Ted Danson, who reprises his winning turn as disgraced billionaire Arthur Frobisher; Saturday Night Live's Darrell Hammond as an unnerving killer; and a trio of HBO vets--Deadwood's Timothy Olyphant and The Wire's John Dornan and Clarke Peters--as a shady love interest for Byrne and a pair of malevolent corporate apparatchiks. If the third season of Damages achieves the level of quality of season 2 and its predecessor, it will be the neatest hat trick on TV since The Sopranos.

The three-disc set of Damages' second season features a healthy selection of extras for series devotees to enjoy. Writers and creators Glenn Dessler, Daniel Zelman, and Todd Kessler are featured on commentary tracks for four episodes, and they're joined by members of the cast on each: Byrne (who may surprise some with her Australian accent) and a wry Olyphant on season opener "I Lied, Too"; Danson on "They Had to Tweeze That Out of My Kidney"; Donovan on "Look What He Dug Up This Time"; and Close on "Trust Me." The creative team is also front and center for Season Two: Post Mortem, which is informative for those wondering how the producers and writers work with the show's nonlinear format; the cast is the focal point for Character Profiles, which features short bios and chats with the main players. A battery of deleted scenes round out the set's supplemental features. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Another season of the Emmy® Award-winning show comes to DVD! After her unprecedented victory over billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) has the legal world at her feet. Just as she’s pondering her next move, Daniel Purcell (William Hurt), a man from Patty’s past, throws her into a new legal challenge. What starts as a domestic murder case escalates into the highest reaches of government as Patty unearths a vast conspiracy. At the same time, Ellen (Rose Byrne) is on a mission to take down Patty. She’s agreed to act as an informant for the FBI, assisting them in their criminal investigation of Patty and the firm. As Patty unravels the mystery surrounding Daniel Purcell, she must also negotiate the perilous minefield both inside and outside her office.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Great - But not as riveting as Season 1 July 20, 2009
Format:DVD
Season 1 was taut and terrifying magic. Season 2 tries to mix in a major new storyline while still carrying forward the lethal fallout from last season's Arthur Frobisher case. Although teasing and confusing the viewer are part of the stylistic tone of this production, things got a little muddy with too many characters in mid-season. Still, the Season Finale was so brilliant, it more than paid off its mid-season markers. Meanhile, the acting of the major characters - Rose Byrne deserves more credit, IMHO - continues to shine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Less Is More January 25, 2010
Format:DVD
The first season of "Damages" was brilliant.

The second season was very good as well. But, it seems to be missing something.

Upon reflection, I believe the missing ingredient was villians who were just as compelling as the "heroes."

In Season 1, the series benefitted greatly from Ted Danson's portrayal of the wayward billionaire Arthur Frobisher. Danson's Frobisher was equal parts "average joe made good" and inaccessible, plutocratic jerk; the rare character who you find yourself both repulsed by and rooting for. (This combination made him a yin to Patty Hewes's yang.)

There are no "villians" who the viewers can identify with in the 2nd season. The primary antagonist in this installment was an industrialist who would not acknowledge the illegal dumping of hazardous waste because he would "have his company taken away from him" if he did. There's nothing nuanced, complicated or vaguely sympathetic about that.

Glenn Close once again turns in an Emmy-worthy performance as a "Race Horse Haynes" -esque class-action litigator, Patty Hewes. She's worth the price of the dvd set by herself.

This season kept my attention and was entertaining from beginning to end. But, the first season was virtually perfect and thus, this season which certainly fell short of that, suffers in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still excellent in the second season May 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season 2 of "Damages" picks up right where Season 1 left off, with fallout from the Frobisher case lingering. In season 2, a new case is introduced involving an energy corporation and its nefarious CEO, played smashingly well by John Doman. William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden and Timothy Olyphant join the cast.

In season 2, the show is still excellent, but the plot is somewhat more convoluted that it was in season 1. While convolution, in my book, generally adds a welcome layer of depth, mystery and complexity to a show, in this instance it brought some confusion with it, particularly with regard to a character named Dave Pell who's trying to get Patty Hewes' husband Phil Grey to become energy commissioner. Since I watched the show on DVD, I didn't have much down time between episodes, so confusion was minimized. If I'd spaced out the viewing, however, I might have gotten lost. So, when you're watching, pay attention to Dave Pell and how's he's involved.

Although Ted Danson is in season 2, he's not what I would consider to be a main character and he is sorely missed. The seeds of Arthur Frobisher's continued presence in the show are, however, planted in season 2 as he seeks clarity and attempts to build a new business.

Some of the best TV out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Drama, Excellent Glenn Close January 28, 2010
Format:DVD
"Damages - The Complete Second Season" stars Glenn Close and features Ted Danson, Rose Byrne, Tate Donovan, and William Hurt. Academy Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden and Timothy Olyphant join the cast in Season Two. Following the premier season's legal battle and victory over CEO billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Danson), Patty Hewes (Close) has the legal world at her feet. Just as she's pondering her next move, Daniel Purcell (Hurt), a man from Patty's mysterious past, re-enters her life, drawing her into a new legal challenge. What begins as a domestic murder case escalates into the highest reaches of government as Patty unearths a vast conspiracy. At the same time, Ellen (Byrne), Patty's once ambitious protégé, is on a mission to take Patty down. Ellen has agreed to be an informant for the FBI in their criminal investigation of Patty and the firm. Patty must unravel the mystery surrounding Purcell and negotiate the dangers both inside and outside her office.
The raison d'etre of "Damages" is Ms. Close, who etches a constantly fascinating portrait of the formidable trial lawyer. Her Patty is intense, intelligent, shrewd, and volatile -- all business one moment, all girlish and playful the next. Her unpredictability gives the show an edge and distinguishes it from other TV lawyer dramas.
The three-disc DVD contains all thirteen episodes of the second season. Bonus extras include cast and crew commentaries on selected episodes, deleted scenes, a Season One recap, seven character profiles, and a Season Two Post Mortem in which the creators take a look back at Season Two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Follow Up February 5, 2010
Format:DVD
This second season of Damages is more of a sequel than a true second season of a television series. I say this because Damages is a very cinematic show. From its cast of big name star, elaborate and inventive plot, dark content, beautiful cinematography and first rate direction; nothing about this show feels like something that came from TV. Season 1 was groundbreaking and thrilling television. Season 2 is a continuation of that, upping the ante for good and for worse. The story is so large and so complex it was, for me really fun to try and put all the pieces together. Most people will complain that it was not as straight forward as Season 1 but I didn't care, the writing was seamless and just made you pay more attention. The acting is stepped up as well, especially from Rose Byrne, the true star of this season. If you are a fan of Season 1 I urge you to check out this sequel season. It really is a continuation of the excellence we found in Season 1.

And how could anyone pass up with a show with this cast: Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, Tate Donovan, Anastasia Griffith, Ted Danson, Michael Nouri, Marcia Gay Harden, Timothy Olyphant, William Hurt and John Doman.

I am sure Season 2 will hit blu eventually, but at the moment......No Blu, No Sale. I guess Season 1 blu didn't sell (I didn't confirm that), but if you release 1, you have to follow it up.
