Re: Billions

Binged it. Really liked it.

Only one grievance: seems pretty obvious Heineken is paying to appear in the show. Are we really supposed to believe that those fancy billionaires rather drink this piss instead of some fine beer ?!

Looking forward to watching season 4 nonetheless.

I noticed a lot of this as well. They always make sure to have Axe's Pumas right up there in plain view during the first few seasons.

Grunching (mainly because I only just finished S2) but if you close your eyes when Andrew McCabe talks, it is Oliver Dake

Re: Billions

Really enjoying axe/rhoades helping each other. Thats a nasty ****ing duo to deal with, but I imagine if rhoades gets back into office the alliance won't be able to last.

Taylor is also amazing, played the **** out of axe with the russians to get them to pull out.

Re: Billions

Dreadful how? I think this is in keeping with the theme of previous seasons; very slow build up to 1 or 2 episodes where the ish hits the fan. I hope Rhodes & Axe work with each other more to take down each adversary as that's what i expected this season.

Re: Billions

the references are getting more and more over the top. they've always taken you out of scenes, but sometimes they're funny. for example, i liked the 'tighter than ac/dc in 82' line last week so much that i mistakenly posted it in the top chef thread. this episode just had a ton of shoehorned, unfunny stuff. it's every character in every ****ing scene! teddykgb recognising robert james scott as kid rock was probably the most stupid thing ever on this show.

lastly, everything with spyros is just awful now - cringy is right.

this shouldn't exactly be surprising as koppelman and levien have an extremely inconsistent career track record, but i hope they are able to right the ship.

Re: Billions

I liked this episode. This show is what it is, and this episode was it.

Kinda funny you guys love Malkovich doing his KGB bit, and complain that everything else "takes you out of the scene".

I'm glad they cast someone like the quirky chick from Goliath as the female billionaire. If another supermodel strolled in for that role, THAT would take me out of the scene.

Chuck tossing half his sandwich before eating was LOL. "Hey, did you folks at home notice I lost some weight since last season?"

The look on Connerty's face during Chuck's campaign launch was the biggest laugh of the night.

I wish my town had an Italian feast.

Re: Billions

KGB’s accent is laughably bad.

Sandwich toss was funny.

I like every scene with Mafee and Dollar Bill.

What's this, Mafee actually does something you'd expect from multi-billion hedge fund employee.

Re: Billions

I think the scene where 4 or 5 guys were checking the update on chicken report was the only time in all the seasons that any stock charts were actually moving.

Things like that are pretty annoying, the same as any TV show ever always uses totally empty coffee cups, I mean not even some water for weighting purposes so not to look totally retarded carrying it.

Re: Billions

Rewatching from the beginning because my girlfriend hadn't seen the show and I have to say, I'm getting a lot more out of it the second time around.

First season is baller to the max and it helps realize the background of the characters a lot more, especially Chuck's crew.
