Shows such as "Billions," which continue their streak of overall brilliancy in writing, directing and acting, tend to stand out from others. They often hold up this current golden age of television we live in.
Great television is all around us on providers such as HBO, FX and the home of "Billions," Showtime. The game of cat and mouse represented in this show is played out on a massive scale.
A hedge fund and the DA office of New York continue the fight with plenty of drama and a promise of bigger fights to come.
Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) continues his march as a hedge fund kingpin on Wall Street, but this time on the bench instead of on the court. He’s been put on the bench by Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), the DA of New York, whose need to try to destroy Bobby leads him to portray his closest allies, such as best friends and a father, to get a mantle.
This show is in its third season and keeps getting better and better as time goes on. Although the premise is simple, the supporting characters and lavishness of the show keep the audience glued and leave viewers wondering where it will go next.
The golden age continues with Season 3 and has no signs of slowing down.
