"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."|Win At All Costs.
Set in New York's world of high stakes litigation, Damages follows the lives of Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), the nation's most revered and most reviled litigator, and her bright, ambitious protegee Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) as they become embroiled in a class action lawsuit targeting Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), one of the country's wealthiest CEOs. 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.

"Damn, "Damages" is a good show...better than "The Sopranos"...a truly riveting cable TV program.  Gary Chew, Tulsa TV Memories
"...a strong central performance from Glenn Close, and the plotting is so comprehensive and tight that it leaves you little room to breathe.  Todd VanDerWerff, The House Next Door
"Damages is dynamite. And the fuse is lit.  Mike Duffy, Detroit Free Press
"It's Close who makes "Damages" a series to contend with.  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
Glenn Close stars in this original FX series. Set in the high-stakes legal world, DAMAGES explores the relationship between high-powered litigator Patty Hewes (Close) and her naïve young underling Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). Swept up by Patty's camp, Ellen barely has time to catch her breath before being faced with a lawsuit that will challenge her preconceived notions of justice, fairness, and morality. Ellen will have to start learning fast if she wants to keep up with her fierce mentor, whose no-mercy approach to the law makes her one of the most feared and admired figures in the city. Loyalties will be tested and true colors revealed as a class-action lawsuit involving one of American's richest CEOs (Ted Danson) forces everyone involved to stand up for what they believe in. The show's breakout first season is presented here in full.

Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "DAMAGES' first season doesn't disappoint....On the evidence of these first 13 episodes, there's a good case for its future." 05/01/2008 p.162

Total Film

Variety 8 of 10
Television loves the inherent drama of trials but chafes against the complexities of the law, which is why the intriguing "Damages" -- an FX drama starring Glenn Close -- both warrants a second look and merits a note of caution. Dealing with high-stakes litigation, the opening statement establishes Close as a legendary plaintiffs' attorney and Rose Byrne as the ambitious young lawyer drawn into her web. Yet despite smart dialogue and foreshadowing of conflict, there are doubts as to whether this is just another fictionalized legal show where the behavior is so unethical everybody should be disbarred by episode three...Created by Todd Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman, "Damages" continues this summer of "The Sopranos" progeny, with the Kesslers and Coulter having worked on that series, as did "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner. Here, the producers have assembled a solid cast and deftly employ flashbacks to ratchet up suspense as to where this chain of events might lead..."Damages" will need to maintain a toehold in reality that will quickly disappear if the legal pyrotechnics spiral into murder and mayhem -- one of those corner-cutting tricks writers and executives tend to employ when they don't trust a show enough to mount a slam-dunk case for its appeal. - Brian Lowry
