‘Billions’ Is Spending Its ‘F— You Money’ in Season 4

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Billions” Season 4, Episode 1, “Chucky Rhodes’ Greatest Game.”]

The greatest “Billions” line in a long history of great lines is the one that started it all: “What’s the point of having ‘fuck you money,’ if you never say ‘fuck you’?” In Showtime’s series premiere, hedge fund billionaire Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) was mocking the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), in the first of many verbal smackdowns between sworn enemies. The two men’s vitriol for one another ran both professional and personal — Chuck’s wife, Wendy (Maggie Siff), is also Bobby’s in-house therapist — and fueled the series through multiple hoodwinks, betrayals, pranks, gambits, and a very dicey bit of business involving poisoned juice.

That was then, this is now: Having been kicked out of office, Chuck is at his wit’s end. Bobby, who lost his wife and nearly went to prison, isn’t far behind.

Sony Developing Agent Venom TV Show

Anyone getting excited about seeing Venom again might be thinking about the sequel to Sony’s impressive showing and the possibility that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man might be making an appearance. To fans of the comics it would no doubt be something that would still be hard to swallow since the whole idea of Venom and Spider-Man having a history is a part of their past that’s hard to let go. But perhaps if they’re given a look at a new character to the big screen, Carnage, then it might smooth over a few hurt feelings. But apart from that, it does
