Damages

Just found out that "Damages" became a DirecTV exclusive showing on their AUDIENCE Network™ last year. First episode of Season 5 was last night. Am I the only member of the TCF who watched the first three seasons of this show and didn't know about this already?

Thus the phrase "last year" in my initial post. And "first three seasons"

Also, you didn't answer my question - am I the last "Damages" viewer on the TCF to know?

Probably.

It was a pretty big deal a couple of years ago when it was announced that Damages was going to become a DTV-exclusive show, complete with two-year pick-up.

Depends on definitions.

I watched the first season, and at least some of the second one, or maybe even all of it and some of the third, but got lost somewhere along the way, and quit trying to keep up, so I'm just now finding out that it's still being produced.

I assume Saffron still has yet to be avenged?

You're not the only one...my wife watches the show and she has no idea that this is the situation with the new season.

This is so messed up. I loved this show and but I have Comcast. I wondered what happened to it. Oh well. Maybe I'll get it on Hulu or some such streaming source.

If you mean by "following the show" that she didn't investigate why a new season didn't air then I guess you are right. But I'm sure like most people who were watching the show she just assumed either the show got canceled or was on hiatus.

It's pretty rare that a show moves from a basic cable channel to a content provider specific channel.

Like me. I figured it was cancelled. Season 4 is on Amazon and iTunes for $17 & $18, respectively. S1-3 are on Amazon Prime. If I wait a while, all 5 seasons might be on Prime.
