"Billions" is a hot, new Showtime drama that stars Damien Lewis (Homeland) and Paul Giamatti about a hedge fund manager (Lewis) who goes toe-to-toe with a cock-sure District Attorney (Giamatti). The first couple of episodes have been absolutely riveting as they introduce the viewer to the world of high finance.
Billions is written by Brian Koppelman, David Levian, who, along with Andrew Ross Sorkin, bring together a very elegant and fast paced Sunday night television drama that is sure to keep viewers on the edge of their seat. While viewers are subjected to sometimes complex financial terminology, the gist of the plot is thoughtfully explained and superbly executed by its actors.
This show is definitely worth your time and the space on your DVR to watch over and over.
I put off watching it because I wasn't sure if it would be my cup of tea, but i'm kicking myself that I did because this show is so awesome. Easily the best new show in a long time. It was a pleasure to be proven wrong.
