A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing.
Words do not exist that can adequately express how utterly and completely worthless this alleged "series". Filmed during the height of the reality TV craze of the mid-2000s, the producers of this failed cluster-pluck spend a total of 16 valuable thirty minute episodes and instead of shining any light whatsoever on what people who work in finance and on Wall Street do, they jump cut from one boring puff piece to another about the life stories and back stories of a small group of some of the most uninteresting people one could ever possibly even conceive of. If you're looking for any real "warriors" you won't find them here. Perhaps it was a lack of access or perhaps it was just pure ignorance and a sincere lack of knowledge of the industry itself. The scenes of the traders in the pits was "interesting" at best, but teaches, nor reveals, absolutely nothing -- except perhaps to only the most basic novices. Worst of all, the series gives a very poor and inaccurate misrepresentation of what it's like to trade or invest for a living. This was a poor attempt of a job and hence it's quick demise. Thoroughly unenjoyable.
