The hook for this show isn't the financial misdoings, but in the same vein as House of Cards, this is a show about wielding power and leverage. The fun is in watching the characters finding angles on each other and exploiting them. Hopefully the fun continues. The acting is good, the characters are compelling and the financial industry is a good enough back drop to provide interesting storylines.

A bit difficult to follow along with if you're not really interested in white collar crime but fantastic acting, really good writing and story telling. A+ cast. Paul Giamatti is a stand out. I'd personally enjoy more diversity but definitely worth the watch.

You can't knock the acting. The premise seems relevant (The majority of this is me confusing Andrew Ross Sorkin with Aaron Sorkin). I don't know if I just need to give it more time or if I'm too well-read about these types of people and financial crash that it's hard to for me to feel hooked. The fantasy of a newsroom that didn't suck in The Newsroom I bought. An idyllic President and complicated staff I went in for with The West Wing. Watching rich people spend money and debate numbers and a sort of dreamlike example of a prosecutor to pursue them...I guess it just makes me sad. That's not the shows fault of course, but glorified versions of billionaires that almost celebrates their bad boy getting away with it all maybe hits a little too close to home. I love Damien Lewis after Homeland, but his character I want to burn, and not because he has to work that hard to be hated. I think about Entourage where at least they're childish mockeries of the lavish lifestyle and attitudes and the show could kind of make fun of itself. Or Ballers tends to lean well on the humor to distract from the slackish story. We'll see where it goes.

@dogg724: why are you talking about Aaron Sorkin? This show is co-created and co-written by Andrew Ross Sorkin. Nothing to do with the creator from Newsroom or West Wing. Imo the acting is very good. The characters and storyline are very interesting too. Only 3 episodes so far but I hope the whole season will stay as good.

This is one of the shows I look forward to every episode. The story is exciting and the cast electric and it never drops in quality from week to week. I'm a BIG lover of suits and was gutted when it ended but this is my go to replacement and the fact that David Costabile was in both and they've recently had Rick Hoffman as a guest star in Billions makes it even better. To many more seasons!

Excellent tv show, highly recommend.

I've grown to really like this show. I love the insults that are said between Axe and Chuck. I just wish the premiere was 2 hours long instead of an hour.

avatar

when it's coming BACK ?

avatar

Chuck is a hypocrite. He is just as big of a crook and criminal has the people he tries to prosecute.

avatar

After first two brilliant seasons this show has really gone downhill, too much willy-waving and obnoxious rich twats.

very similar to 'Suits', but on steroids...
