    Product Description

    For brilliant attorney Patty Hewes (two-time Emmy® winner Glenn Close), the stakes have never been higher, professionally or personally, in the riveting Fourth Season of the hit legal thriller. When Patty joins Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) to expose a corrupt security firm in Afghanistan, they unravel a cover-up at the highest levels involving an inscrutable mercenary agent (Dylan Baker), a key witness taken hostage (Chris Messina) and the powerful CEO (double Emmy® winner John Goodman) with his own explosive secrets. It all comes down to one final, fatal double-cross.

    The change of network for the legal thriller Damages doesn't appear to have hurt its core appeal--the fireworks ignited by Glenn Close's dogged, morally ambiguous attorney Patty Hewes--in the series' fourth season, which aired on DirecTV after three years on FX. Malfeasance on the part of a private security firm working with the US military in Afghanistan is the central case in season four, with Hewes and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) once again in uneasy cahoots to bring down the company's bullish man in charge (John Goodman). In doing so, they attract the attention of an icy mercenary (Dylan Baker, fascinatingly malevolent) determined to keep them off the blood trail that links Parsons's friend (Chris Messina), a former soldier-for-hire in the grip of posttraumatic stress after his experiences with the firm, to Goodman. As in previous seasons, the main case is the nucleus for several orbiting side plots, including Patty's struggle with her son (Zachary Booth) over custody of her grandchild, as well as Baker's personal connection to the case, all of which underscore the series' recurring theme: everyone has a secret, and most likely, it will be their undoing.

    As with previous seasons of Damages, the fourth season benefits greatly from its mix of regular players and guest actors, which include Judd Hirsch as a dipsomaniacal PI, Tom Noonan as a deceptively charming ex-cop, and Fisher Stevens as Patty's court-appointed therapist, and the show's trademark shifting timelines still create considerable tension as they inexorably snake together at the season's end. If there's any complaint to be had, it may be that the network shift seems to have reduced some of the show's production value: the direction occasionally feels static, while sets and locations have a stage-bound feel that undercuts the show's sense of realism. That may have little impact on die-hard fans, who come to Damages to watch Close's finely tuned blend of legal demolition derby and predatory backroom maneuvers. Extras are limited to a pair of brief featurettes, one on the making of the new seasons, the other focusing on Close as she discusses Patty's path to season four. Deleted scenes and an outtake reel round out the three-disc set. --Paul Gaita

    5.0 out of 5 stars Still the Best Drama on TV September 17, 2011
    By Reed
    While neutral about the season 3 (I thought it was too short and disjointed), I found season 4 to be just as smart, suspenseful, superbly plotted, and expertly acted as ever. It's the best season since its debut, and still one of the most relevant-to-the-times dramas on television.

    Our heroine Ellen and anti-heroine Patty take on High Star, a private defense contractor integral in illegal interrogation and extraction activities in Afghanistan. One botched mission serves as platform for a lawsuit. The true purpose of that mission is an underlying mystery known to only one character, which is revealed bit by bit. This is not your typical wartime terrorism, and solving this mystery is essential to the plot so trust that the battlefield flashbacks are relevant and not just filler. Because the CIA is in bed with High Star, it's also not your typical corporate corruption. The stakes to protect the guilty are the highest and most dangerous they've ever been. Ellen and Patty are warned and then threatened to stay away, and of course that makes them all the more hungry to continue.

    In a heartbreaking performance, Chris Messina plays Chris Sanchez, a vet and High Star combat employee suffering from acute PTSD and racked with guilt after leading said botched mission. He's an old friend of Ellen's and she convinces him to sue High Star for wrongful deaths - partly in the name of justice, but equally to feed her ambition. But her firm of record is not so ambitious -- so unable to win it without Patty, Ellen goes back to the lair, literally.

    John Goodman is well cast as the CEO of High Star. As a staunch Christian, he seemingly struggles reconciling his job and his faith.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Down in the dumps over Damages September 18, 2011
    By sammy
    I concur, Damages is the best! How could it be so off the radar? With all the junk on network tv, how could this gem of a program be regulated to Direct TV- whatever that is..please this program should be on a major network...wait, they don't know whats good...but cable channels like AMC or USA..come on , this is a great series!

    Season 4 of Damages was more as a set up for the 5th and final season. Everything you loved about the previous 3 seasons (crazy plot twists, and great characterization) is still there. The only thing that I felt wrong with this season was that it seemed a little rushed. (The writers were cut 3 episodes with the move to DirectTV). Although the season is a little rushed, it's edgier and more realistic than the previous 3 seasons. The "R" rated language, they were allowed to get away with, definitely brought depth to some of the military characters. Damages has always been a gritty show, but now, it's even grittier and darker than ever. This season set up the final season perfectly,(SPOILER, setting up an Ellen vs Patty arc). I'm very excited to see where the Kessler bothers & Zelman are going to take us for the final act.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Send me the dvd now! September 14, 2011
    Why did FX drop this series and allow it to migrate to direct tv? This is possibly the best show on television. I can't wait for the dvd to be released. I want to see it NOW.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Down From Former Glory September 17, 2011
    This was one of my favorite shows, along with The Good Wife, The Shield, The Wire, Breaking Bad, and so on, and each season only got better the first three times. I loved this show. But Season 4, while certainly entertaining enough to watch, had enough detracting factors to prevent any hearty 5-star rating from this reviewer. The first was the cast.

    While John Goodman has never been my favorite actor, he wasn't terrible, but there were other weak links as well. The story for one, about a CIA rogue who working within the services of a defense contractor in Afghanistan, manages to get a group of American soldiers killed on an 'unauthorized' mission. The story becomes one of Ellen actually teaming up with Patty Hewes to take these guys on. Her interest in it revolves around a former male friend from college who was leader of the group that was killed there. Entirely too much time is spent with that actor (forget his name) and his flashbacks of Afghanistan and his buddies getting killed. His performance was also just tolerable. Likewise for the rogue CIA agent that got him embroiled in the mess. And then there's John Goodman to top it off. No, the cast, while having big names, were perhaps too familiar to pump a good sense of mystery into the story. And the story itself and the events that go down were often slightly weak or unplausable, like in the end where the captive boy is allowed to run around free and 'socialize' with the prisoner. Don't worry, I haven't given anything away. But those who've seen it should agree that that scene made no sense and was only allowed to be for the sake of plot contrivance. This was not great film-making or HBO style TV in comparison to previous seasons.
