Billions is a television series on Showtime. Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis star in a complex drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Shrewd, savvy U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and the brilliant, ambitious hedge fund king Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Lewis) are on an explosive collision course, with each using all of his considerable smarts, power and influence to outmaneuver the other. The stakes are in the billions in this timely, provocative series.
Sharply written and tailor-made to its two marquee stars, “Billions” deals with plenty of weighty issues but proved most enjoyable for an attribute that a lot of premium-cable dramas can tend to forget: Fun...Mostly, though, “Billions” crackled on the strength of clever dialogue ...and those assembled to deliver it. That level of quality that extended to even smallish roles, like Axelrod’s shadowy fixer (Terry Kinney) and oily attorney (Glenn Fleshler)... [I]n chronicling contemporary gamesmanship involving a certain brand of royalty, “Billions” has, both creatively and practically, yielded a pretty nice and consistent return on investment.--Brian Lowry, Variety, April 10, 2016
