Quotes

Douglas Mason: Wait, this is all a test?
Taylor Mason: Not a test, a confirmation. I needed to remind myself who you really are. Wendy said it. I didn't want her to be right but she was. I didn't choose the firefighters over you dad, I chose what you wanted over what I needed.
Douglas Mason: Don't you need me?
Taylor Mason: Yes, and I always have but the version of you I really need, the one who's a father first, he doesn't exist 'cause all he cares about is his own advancement.

The characters are feeling wooden in this one
3 May 2019 | by bobetjoSee all my reviews

Billions started off as a great show, but it has really lost interest in the last few episodes.

I don't know if it is the writing but the lines and scenes are feeling laboured and wooden. It can't be the fine actors. For example when Taylor, her father and Mafee discuss being played by Wendy. It was so staged. Yet Taylor Mason is a great character. There is screen presence and might support a spinoff show. So what is wrong?

Another example. Mafee storms into Axe Capital to tell Wendy what he thinks. The office crew, instead of starting a rumble, say innocuous things like "You can't call Dollar Bill that." Bill and Mafee then have a confrontation but it is doesn't feel real. So shallow. No punches thrown by these testosterone fueled masters of the universe?

The plot seems to be getting thinner by the week. The protagonists need real enemies and conflict. Instead they are having schoolyard tussles. Another reviewer mentioned celebrity tick-boxing. I agree. It is all well having Axe at an event, say, and encounter a financial superstar or someone appropriate to the scene. But we are getting Iron Chefs cooking pancakes for the breakfast at Axes flat. Meetings held at trending ice cream parlours. Should we print bingo cards?
