went on a multi month trek and broke phone and laptop right before it started so lost trusted device and 2fa and had to move mountains to reclaim online life, since i was going to be hiking in mountains anyway figured just let it be and not deal with any of it until i was done

it was actually a blessing to be disconnected for so long

when i got back, my consulting work started coming in hard and since habits were all broken by then just stayed away for a while

on vacation now so using this time to get back into the swing of things

haven't watched much tv at all, but just saw this thread as i try to catch up on my threads and was reminded how deeply disapointed this show left me

Re: Billions

right up there with ballers, a guilty pleasure that straddled the line of being a great show but then just decided to turn it into a parody of itself, tried catching up on ballers recently too... my god that show quickly got awful

Re: Billions

ballers was fine for a couple of seasons. it was never actually good, but it was fine.

as it went on it got really, really bad. in the final season i mainly just had it on in the background while playing on my phone. at the end of one of the episodes something happened (no spoilers!) that literally caused me to say 'wait, what?' and rewind. my mouth was agape like a cartoon character. it was just stunningly bad writing, but probably wasn't the worst thing that happened that season. and i love the rock, but you know he genuinely thought all that talking to the camera stuff was amazing, powerful television.

Re: Billions

Been marathon’ing this the last couple weeks since I ran out of shows. Never planned on watching it since I’m kind of done with Showtime. Just started season 5.

It took awhile to get in to but its become quite fun. I’m still not 100% convinced that Spieros and Ira aren’t the same person lol
