There is a new Sorkin in town ...
3 April 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Based on the writing and characterizations alone, this show, right out of the box, would be a 9.

That is a serious statement and I think it will hold up. Not only do these scripts go into areas of finance that the public has not been privy to (credit Andrew Ross Sorkin of TOO BIG TO FAIL fame) but, I kid you not, in this show the men talk like men and the women talk like bigger men. And it works a treat.

They could have stopped there. But, no, they went for the casting coup of the century. Giamatti against Lewis. Giamatti, who could not give a weak performance if he tried, out-does all his prior film work. Which is also an amazing statement to make. It is as if he wants this show to replace his entire highlight reel.

And then Lewis. How talented is this guy?? He not only played an American traitor -- brilliantly -- and had to work with Claire Danes (not as easy as it looks) but effortlessly switches to billionaire tycoon without missing a beat.

The only thing missing from the IMDb profile page is a list of the awards this show won. Check back a year from now for that.
