Paul Tudor Jones
Now out of prison but still disgraced by his peers, Gordon Gekko works his future son-in-law, an idealistic stock broker, when he sees an opportunity to take down a Wall Street enemy and rebuild his empire.
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.
Definitely give this series a viewing! It's a lot of fun and great to have a peek into the lives of people working in New York on Wall Street. I've always been interested in that world, but never knew anything about it. This show takes you there in a big way and shows you around. The subjects have a variety of different jobs, so we get a good cross section (i.e. hedge funds, trading floors, day traders, etc.). Sandra, the hot corporate lawyer, is a great character. I just love to watch her. And Guy, the hedge fund manager, is a rich stud with interesting thoughts on the market. Timmy, the day trader, is entertaining and I loved watching him make a fool of himself on national television. All together, one of the most enjoyable TV shows I've seen in while. Season 2 started airing last week and it might be even better than the first. It's on Mojo, an HD cable channel (like HDNet). Just wanted to spread the word. Check it out for sure. I highly recommend it.
