am I remembering this wrong, or wasn’t he trying to get information from her because his dad’s PI caught her sleeping with someone in a hotel. to me he wasnt doing that part for sexual enjoyment, he was using the situation to try to get her to admit to it by revealing certain details which is why he kept asking for more. I thought it was apparent by her reaction that it was out of the ordinary for him

I could be completely off here of course

Re: Billions

because I don’t think she told him about it, and he can’t admit that his dad had a PI on her

Re: Billions

Lines I missed on first run thru of @SHO_Billions ep2: 1) "you're fair" 2) Are you testing me? , like that waiter in (fight) club? 3) Move over Zapruder 4) Jim Morrison reference then "A spy in the house of Lords" Also, was Jock Jeffcoat in My Cousin Vinny?


Also, "**** you Chuck"

Re: Billions

that whole monologue by laura directed at her "friend" was the worst moment of the entire show and maybe in tv history. laura is a pretty awful actress but those lines did not help at all. "you are probably asking yourself if you should be angry or grateful. be grateful." ugh such cringe.

I didn't really get it either. "You left Bobby. That's kinda inspirational and I sometimes wish I had the balls to do the same."

"Shut up whore. You are a self obsessed monster who needs fame or you'd kill yourself. Be greatful that you're with a husband you can't stand."

Like, wat?

Horrible! Indeed it's hard to recall any dialogue in .. anything, that sounded less natural. I don't hold it against the actor that much. It's a poorly written character.

Re: Billions

Surprised at the lack of love. Is this not the best show on TV? Are you not entertained?

Did not Lara leave Axe so he can bang Wendy (in front of Chuck)?

Correct, it is not. But it's better than The Walking Dead.

It's just the usual Sorkin 'look at me I'm such a clever witty writer BS'. Despite the fact I hate Sorkin dialogue I find Billions quite enjoyable.

Was talking with my wife about this. She hates Sorkin dialogue too. I think the main difference between this show and Sorkin is pacing. In a Sorkin show, two characters will jibber at each other like two rabbits on speed. Billions allows for some pause, some breath in the conversations. Kinda like real humans talking instead of Sorkin created automatons with the Sorkin dialogue patch installed.

This coming from a guy who has Sports Night as one of his all time favorite shows.

Also, I think the Billions writers hate writing for the wife. Her character is almost entirely unneeded. It's no surprise we haven't seen her for two episodes now.

There was too much heat! So he's probably gone forever, which of course is exactly what that character would do, but damn, he's missed.

I just binged season 1 and thought it was mediocre. Are seasons 2 and 3 more of the same or should I give it a shot?

Re: Billions

mostly the same but S2 is a bit better than S1. if you didn't enjoy the second half of S1 more than the first, and your time is valuable, then perhaps don't bother.
