Default Showtime TV Drama: Billions

Don't believe there is a thread about this show on showtime.
This show IMO is can't miss TV.
Great writing and acting. Paul Giamati is a brilliant actor. Damian lewis is just as good.
Maggie siff is 🔥

Very surprised there aren't any discussion on this show.

Highly recommended for those who have not watch the show yet.

Wags is hilarious. The writing on this show is second to none.

I've watched since season one, the show is great. Great writing, excellent performances. Very compelling and many times has you wondering what'll happen next.

I watched two episodes of Season 1. It was good however I struggled to find someone to root for. Sort of lost interest after that.

Love this show, it should be more popular IMO. The acting by Paul Giamatti is tremendous. Maggie Siff is great as well.

Great show, I think it's hard to follow for some that's why it doesnt get much pub. Wags is great

How has this season been? Loved 1 and 2 but started losing interest around episode 2 of this season. Not a fan of the guy?girl? character running things in Ax's place.

Fantastic show with a fantastic cast, every person is great. Wags and Dollar Bill are awesome, gotta shout out for my man Ari Spiros, that dude is great, you want him to get punched in the face so bad.

Yeah last nights episode was good. I felt bad for the Dr, but he is coming away with some $$$$. I have a feeling Taylor is gonna flip or something coming up. Just by the way she/he kept looking out her/his (lol) office window towards Axe. Great show.

Anyone else want to try one of those birds Wags got for Axe? They are apparently a real thing and the story the chef told about how they are prepared and them being illegal is true.

Bobby effing Axelrod. You should hate him, but I can’t bring myself to do it. Plus he’s a fellow Metallica fan. All sins are forgiven.

Another solid episode. The Axe and Taylor competition could be interesting. And gotta love the weekly Wags one liners. "You go to a gym with people in it"

I though for sure Wendy felt so guilty that was going to bang Mafee in that hotel... Nice to see her put her "Mistress" attitude out front!

Another solid episode last night. I like John Malkovich's character. I wonder what will happen if Axe dosent take care of his money. Also like how Rhodes is thinking about taking on the AG.
