    Damages is an amazing show and John Goodman is going to be amazing in it. I am so happy DirectTV picked up this show! I don’t have DirectTV but I know I will be at my parent’s house everynight it comes on this summer to watch it!

    I’m a Damages fan from the very beginning and am so glad it’s getting a fourth and fifth season. I don’t have DirecTV, but will be scrambling when it gets closer to returning to find someone with it. At the least, I’ll be picking up a copy of season 2 and season 3 (when it get released), and just have to wait for the Season 4 DVDs.

    As if you need more reason to switch to DirecTV!

    I can’t wait for the new season to start…

    DirecTV kept Friday Night Lights going, so this is a good thing for Damages. Keep the quality shows and get rid of all the reality garbage.

    I miss Damages but I won’t be going to DirecTV. I hate that they did this.
