Re: Billions (Showtime)

Jesus H Christ! Nsguy, that's a HELL of a cast. Giamatti (spl) and Damian Lewis. I've loved Lewis since, Band of Brothers.

What's the format? I mean, is this going to be a mini-series, or a weekly series?

12 episodes were picked up. In addition to Giamatti and Lewis, it also has Maggie Siff (Tara from SoA) and Malin Akerman. Couple of links below about it.

Re: Billions - Showtime Sunday

Man, this was good!

Love both of the main actors, Lewis and Giamatti. You can tell, both characters hate one another too. I wouldn't be surprised to find out Chuck Rhoades, the Giamatti character, suspects Axelrod of sleeping with his wife. Although, that opening scene where the "dominatrix" put out a cigarette on Rhoades chest, only to pee on the burnt spot to put out the fire, had me screaming. Then to find out, the dominatrix was his wife, my jaw hit the floor.

This series boils down to two guys pissing off a bridge. One says, 'this water is cold.' The other says, 'and its deep too.' who shows the other the door to the prison cell. I've got a feeling, Rhoades will do anything to get his wife out of Axelrod's company, and that includes bending the law.

Excellent opening episode. I'll be waiting for next Sunday.

I knew immediately from her silhouette. I don't know what it was, but instantly, "That's Maggie". I didn't even know at the time that she was cast.
