I've watched this series for 4 seasons. The acting is consistantly great! Glenn Close and Rose Byrne are both excellent actors and they deserve higher star ratings than the the show is getting in season 4. Some people are givingpoor ratings with 1-2 stars because of a change in Amazon's policy to not offer it free starting in season 4 with the amazon prime video membership. These poor reviews are bringing the actual show ratings down. Amazon's policy change has nothing to do with the quality of the actual show. I wish people would rate the acting and writing quality of the show correctly and not lower it because they're pissed off at Amazon.

Bruce Altman tells Glenn Close to F*** ***. What could be better? Another great season of Damages. And John Goodman as the villain.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By author of Not a Ghost of a Chance on July 11, 2012
Damages is well written and plotted, with wonderful acting. It stands head and shoulders above most shows on television. Kudos also for casting an older woman in a leading roll. John Goodman was wonderful in his role as Howard T. Erickson, the head of Blackwater Security. The show is smart and engaging, so rare these days.

I enjoyed this season far more than last season. The death of (Tate Donovan) playing Thomas Shayes made the body count rather high. There was also a general gloom to season 3, which I found depressing. Cynicism makes the show more gripping, but can go too far.

July 21 update: Amazon issued a credit to cover the cost of my unwatched episodes that are now pay-per-view, instead of part of Prime's free instant video. Thanks for making it right, Amazon.

July 17 original comment: "Damages" is one of those addictive shows that hooks you and compels you to want to immediately see the next installment. It was deceptive marketing to offer season 4 for free one day as part of Prime instant streaming and then, after hooking viewers, switching the pricing the next day to charge for the remaining episodes. This is unethical marketing and Season 4 should be restored to free Prime instant streaming.

I will remember the first 3 seasons fondly, from the edge of my seat. This season, I'm bored. The actors deserve better! We deserved better. Sad!

Something has really changed in this show from the non Direct TV produced broadcast version. The writing is horrible, the suspenseful situations aren't and the exaggeration of impending danger is transparent. This version plays to the viewers like we are 7 years old and never saw the show before. However, the cast is great, the situation and motive of the characters is questionable.

If you liked the first 3 seasons, you will be disappointed with this one.

I really don't think this season was any less magnificent, than the previous ones. Patty H. is still deliciously wicked, although we started to see some on her intimate self.
I enjoyed, John Goodman's performance, I have never seen this actor in anything worthwhile. Can't wait for season 5.
Thanks Amazon for having this show on Prime!

Where this show used to be creepy and unpredictable in it's plot development, this fourth season could have been written by a computer program. Too bad.
