Better than the first season if that is possible..,
This review is from: Damages: Season 2 (DVD)
This second season kept me up until sunrise. This is the best show around these days and while I was wondering where they could go after Season 1, the whole of Season 2 just rocked my socks off. "Ellen is kinda hot", in the words of Patty's son. In Season 2, we get to watch her transform from innocent into borderline "femme fatale", and there's something that borders on the architypical or legendary in her expression of the persona - beautiful, melancholy, deadly. I was surprised they could follow up so strong after such a very good first season. Patty has become more sympathetic and you find you are actually rooting for her much of the time. She still packs her usual punch though, and when least expected. Conversely, she takes a few herself.
Rose Byrne and Glenn Close were just fantastic and all the villains were great. So many different characters. I love the set locations on this show. They have a very authentic feeling and they are used without ostentation to great effect. Interestingly and beautifully shot, seamless fast paced action, tight dialogue and plot are what you get with Damages Season 2. Just excellent.
