'Damages,' which stars Glenn Close as scary and scarily good litigator Patty Hewes, has already established itself to be an Emmy darling in its relatively short run. The series has racked up nominations for best drama, writing and actors Rose Byrne, Ted Danson and William Hurt, while Close herself has won the statuette for best lead drama actress two years in a row.

Presently, 'Damages' is in the midst of its third season, which ends on April 19.

What do you think? Would you want DirecTV to bring 'Damages' back for another season?
