    What sense does it make to take a great show like Damages away from so many people that don’t have DirectTV? I too have faithfully watched this show since day one. I’m just now finding out that there will be a fourth season; I was elated until I found out that because I have cable, I can’t watch it. This really sucks. I hope they decide to release it on DVD.

    I echo the sentiments of others in lamenting Damages only being shown on DirectTV. It is an excellent program and I’m sorry to have missed it.

    I am very disappointed that I will not be able to watch the new season of Damages, it is truly a great show and I will miss it. Will it be released on DVD at some later date……..Better late than never would at least comfort some to the faithful followers.

    I have watched this show from day 1 and it really saddens me that it will not be with any other cable company but DirectTV. This limits the audience and I am sure eventually it will show in the ratings. Oh well, there is nothing that I want to do about it because I had DirectTv previously and it was horrendous to use. I live in Florida and during the rainy season it was a nightmare. If I can help it I will never use that type service again. I am really sad by this.

    I think this is rotten that Damages has been moved. My cable company will not be carry it. I have watched it from day one and enjoyed the story line. It is a sad day for people that do not have Direct TV.

    I think it stinks that I have been watching Damages faithfully since day one and for the 2011 season I will not be able to watch because I don’t purchase DirecTV. Talk about a monopoly!
