Easily The Best New Show Of The Season!
21 March 2016 | by crenigma478See all my reviews

Billions has it all! Class, Style, Beauty, and best of all Brains.

The battle of wits between Chuck (Paul Giamatti), and Bobby (Damian Lewis) is the heart of the show...and both men are riveting to watch.

The other gem of the show is the fantastic and beautiful Maggie Siff as Chuck's wife Wendy, who just happens to be one of Bobby's oldest friends..not to mention..practically a co founder of Bobby's company. The sparks between Bobby and Wendy fly..but she is married to his greatest enemy. Lewis and Siff have such chemistry on screen...and Damian Lewis has an uncanny ability to make you root for him, no matter what he is playing. Be it a Wrongly Imprisoned cop on the equally excellent short lived show called Life, or the potential villain on Homeland..the man just has incredible talent..and with Bobby "Axe" Axelrod...it is no different. You never want to see one man win..because the Clash Of these two Titans is just too much fun!!
