I knew what I was getting into ……before I even got into it. Have you ever seen a trailer for a show, and you knew that there was no WAY this show was going to be a dud? You looked at the cast…….you looked at the writers……you looked at the thesis of the show, and just knew you were about to see nothing but quality?
That’s where my head was with “BILLIONS” before I saw it.This series delves into the uber dark world of wall street trading and the consequences faced by those left behind…….both in the money world and the legal world.
Starring Damian Lewis(Nicholas Brody- Homeland, for which he won an Emmy) and Paul Giamatti(John Adams- John Adams, A masterpiece of American political history)as the ying and yang of the business world. These two seem built specifically as the “frenemies” of each other. So much in common, yet so far apart ideologically. Rounding out the cast is Maggie Siff( Sons of Anarchy),Malin Maria Akerman(Silk Spectre2- Watchman),and David Costabile(Breaking Bad).
If you haven’t watched the first season you still have time as the second season does not start until Feb.19th.I believe it’s on Netflix or Showtime on demand.
Here’s the Season 2 Trailer
