As Patty battles Frobisher and his attorney, Ellen learns what it takes to win at all costs -- and that lives, not just fortunes, are at stake.

The manipulation of lives, so deft, as to be terrifying. This was a revisit of DAMAGES for me, I first watched this series when it was new, but I'd forgotten the story arch, although the fierce carnage of the characters never really leaves you (which, I think, speaks to the superb writing and performances). Twists and reveals that aren't predictable. Nothing is as it seems. No one is who you think. Great casting and performances. A mystery that keeps your attention throughout - never a false step, never a complacent moment (although, with the same emotional arch in each season and a learned reluctance to trust what is being shown does lead to some viewer disillusionment by making the unpredictable expected). I give this series an 8 (great) out of 10. [Legal Drama]

Bad script and bad acting. Story would fit in 5 minutes per episode

I hate the fast-forward and flashback all the time. It would be better if that wasn't a part of the show.

Thank god that show is over. The first two seasons were good. But after the third season it was getting more and more worse with that show. Nothing new at all in the other seasons, always the same stuff (I do not want to put spoiler here)... but I continued watching this show, because I wanted to know, how it is gonna end. Well... if you also like the first two seasons... just watch the last two episodes of the fourth and fifth season and - yes you gonna miss some things - but not really worth your time to watch the other episodes. Said that, I like the acting Glenn Close, and I like her very well written character. It is a good, realistic show... but you get bored after two seasons; at least I did. 6 out of 10 points ... with a little bit of struggling... maybe it is a 7 ....

Wow. Those were some of the best 5 seasons of television I've ever seen. Was originally worried about the DirecTV change but nope, that season was great and the final season was even better. Fantastic show, highly recommended and jesus christ I wish they'd release this all on blu ray..

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
