It's getting some great reviews ---
… 'Damages' isn't on the level of 'The Sopranos,' but, like Ellen Parsons, it knows what it's about these days. And if you want to see some prime, grade-A Acting, well, you could do a lot worse. …
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says:
… Returning fans will get a kick out of some of the stories, particularly a plot involving Patty, court-mandated therapy and her condo's doorman. As has always been the case, "Damages" remains a mystery-thriller whose characters and their psychological quirks are more intriguing than the plot. It's fun to watch how Ellen has learned from Patty and to see the wheels turning in Patty's head.
… To its credit, "Damages" remains the kind of show that demands genuine attention; there's no reading the newspaper or scribbling crosswords while watching it. Moreover, Goodman, Close and Baker are the kind of fine actors that a certain class of viewer would happily watch read the phone book.
It premieres tonight on direct tv @ 10pm, but if you don't have direct tv, you could probably find it on Sidereel.com after it airs.
