Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 18, 2016

billionsBillions is Showtime’s new drama about a shady billionaire hedge fund guy (Damian Lewis) and the US Attorney (Paul Giamatti) trying to bring him down. The pilot is solid. It’s not super exciting or anything, but it’s engaging in a certain way, which is somewhat explained by finding out afterwords that it’s created by the Rounders guys. Both sides read people and manipulate them in ways that aren’t too dissimilar from Mike McD.

Lewis and Giamatti are joined by Maggie Siff, Malin Ackerman, Gale from Breaking Bad, and that guy who was the Kingpin’s right hand man in Daredevil. And Jerry O’Connell but I think that’s just a short-term thing. But a solid cast.
