Note to self; DO NOT BECOME BILLIONAIRE : )...
15 October 2016 | by brooksrob1See all my reviews

There are many series and movies about being a rich billionaire, many are set in California, a few are in NYC but, often they are clichés' and stereotypical representations of the man.

Billions is so much different. A breath of fresh air. The writers intrigue you. Not a moment is wasted on reviewing the mundane! It's an edge of the seater and nearly impossible to look away...As an east coast businessman for 3 decades, I can appreciate what an utter BURDEN it must be to be a billionaire. The uber rich can be diabolical douchebags. But Bobby Axe brings it to a whole different plane...If only all Billionaires were like him, the world would turn around in no time.

I started binge watching this show ( Billions) yesterday, 7 hours later into the seventh episode, I needed to pause it, and write this review...THAT is how brilliant this show is... Watch it, you'll be glad you did.
