Damian Lewis can plot the impact of his lead role on hit US drama series, Billions from one season – and continent – to the next.

“When I’m in New York and I walk around, people go, ‘Yeah, Bobby Axelrod, yeah, love you man!’, and when I’m in England, where I live, people go, ‘Oh, Bobby Axelrod, you’re a real arsehole!’” he tells TV Guide.

After wrapping season three, the former Homeland star adds, laughing “I think you’ll find that everyone’s an a-hole.”

The Best TV Shows of 2018 (So Far) – June 13, 2018

Top 30 TV Shows: Billions Ranks Number 10

by Staff | Complex | June 13, 2018

Network: Showtime
Cast: Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Maggie Siff

After a widely-loved second season, it felt like the one show everyone thought was underrated was Showtime’s Billions. With season two delivering a masterclass in fucking people over for its finale, this latest season had big shoes to fill; the finale might not have had much of an oomph, but that doesn’t negate an excellent third season. One of the beautiful things about Billions this year is that it decided to highlight what happens when these power-hungry hedge fund investors affect the world around them. With the way of the world today, it’s a piece that can, at times, feel all too real that wasn’t necessarily examined in prior seasons and ends up making this series a vital must-watch. —khal

Billions Superlatives: Best, Worst, Most from S3E12 Finale – June 11, 2018

Here is the best, worst, and most from the final episode of Season 3

The penultimate Billions episode of this great third season ended with a meteoric mic drop: Taylor was setting up their own firm and leaving Axe Capital. That’s the kind of emphatic moment that could’ve ended the season then and there, but Billions had plenty more strings to pull in the Season 3 finale, “Elmsley Count.” The episode title refers to a sleight-of-hand trick that magicians can use with a stack of cards, so the show wasn’t exactly being subtle: You knew some deceptive shit was about to go down.

“Elmsley Count” lived up to its name—there were several moments when I made involuntary, somewhat inhuman squeals over truly shocking narrative twists, and also because Russian oligarch John Malkovich slapped a dude in the face. I love this show so much. Let’s celebrate it one more time this year and break down the finale superlatives.

Billions Dining Guide, Season 3 *COMPLETE* – June 10, 2018

Billions Season Three Dining Guide

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | June 10, 2018

It is no secret that one of my favorite things about my favorite show is how it showcases the New York dining scene from hole-in-the-walls to neighborhood gems to Michelin-starred restaurants. And it has been my pleasure to share the information about restaurants appearing on the show first in my weekly recaps and then in a full dining guide by the end of the season for Season 1 and Season 2.

But now that our dining guides are two of the most widely read articles on the blog, and that we constantly get questions about the restaurants on the show, I have decided to take a different route this season. I am kicking off our dining guide today with the restaurants our characters visited in the first two episodes in Season 3 and I am going to update the post as we go.
