Wealth, influence and corruption collide in this drama set in New York. Shrewd U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades is embroiled in a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey with Bobby Axelrod, an ambitious hedge-fund king. To date, Rhoades has never lost an insider trading case -- he's 81-0 -- but when criminal evidence turns up against Axelrod, he proceeds cautiously in building the case against Axelrod, who employs Rhoades' wife, psychiatrist Wendy, as a performance coach for his company. Wendy, who has been in her position longer than Chuck has been in his, refuses to give up her career for her husband's legal crusade against Axelrod. Both men use their intelligence, power and influence to outmaneuver the other in this battle over billions. The high-profile cast is led by Emmy winners Paul Giamatti ("John Adams") and Damian Lewis ("Homeland") as Chuck Rhoades and Bobby Axelrod, respectively.
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
