Looks like a cheesy nighttime soap. Both lead actors are great though so it might ok. Never seen D Lewis play a role in his native accent.

Isn't that 90% of TV?

I am interested mainly because it's cable so it's more fun, and because I am interested in the subject they will be discussing. Looks entertaining to me.

I have seen 1 & 2 just now, enjoying it.

2nd is a lot better so hoping it keeps the writing momentum up. Better Call Saul is coming back on February 15 but this will do in the meantime. Great thing about being a trader, time to watch everything.

I've gotten so sick of the garbage on "regular cable" that I rarely watch vanilla TV anymore. Sadly, everything else requires a subscription these days, but if the quality is there I suppose that's the price you pay.

That being said - I heard about Billions a couple months ago and never got around to watching it so decided to try the Showtime 7-day free trial and literally binge watched the first 6 episodes last night and WOW - quite the show. Not sure if/how they're going stretch this beyond a single season as I don't think there's enough there for the "non-trader audience" but I hope it survives. There's a lot of "alpha" spread around in the show - male ego/hubris (and by extension, sex) is definitely central to the core of the show but I hope it doesn't just get stretched into a season-long "Wolf of Wall Street". There's opportunity here to also show how normal folks can make money "legally" rather than portray everything about trading in a negative/sleazy light.

Love the show/cast thus far though...

Just saw the finale to season 2.
Pretty sweet series. Great writing and acting. A little over the top, but looking forward to season 3.
I've never been to NYC and didn't know until the credits that the scene with Wendy Rhodes and Axe was at the Twin Towers memorial - where he made his first fortune shorting on 9/11.

although sometime a bit exaggerated
and missing 'content'

Really enjoy the series, one of my favorites. The writing and acting is very good, and the way it's focused on the legality of what he's doing, and them trying to catch him, and not focused on the trading itself makes it more entertaining and open to a wider audience.
