Damages: Season Four hits DVD in the US on June 26th, swiftly followed by the UK release on July 16th. The UK release details are below but first an interlude from me!
Glenn Close is one of the greatest acting forces on the planet, she does psycho, she does caring and she does manipulative perfectly but never has a role asked her to bring all these qualities together, until now; in a show that plays the game of cat and mouse to perfection.
I'm just surprised that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has yet to release anything other than season one on Blu-ray! It seems Damages just can't get a break when it comes to High Definition releases but at least the show lives on, I really didn't expect it to get to a fourth year and considering here in the UK I don't even know which channel airs the show, it leaves DVD as my only option when it comes to digesting the mad cap capers of Patty Hewes.
Press release is below along with a video of Glenn Close in one of the greatest stage roles of all time. "Shut up I'm rich, not some platinum blonde bitch!"
