The 10 Best Musical TV Moments of 2018 – Dec 13, 2018

Bobby’s Bubbling Water

by Sean T. Collins | Vulture | December 13, 2018

Don’t cry, don’t raise your eye, it’s only the best music cues of the year. And as in past years, there’s an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Certainly, the sounds of the ’80s remain television’s staple crop when it comes to using preexisting pop and rock songs to complement, comment on, and enhance the action onscreen: Pose, Narcos: Mexico, The Americans, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace feature almost nothing but. Yet the approaches they take are as varied as their styles and subject matter, and when you factor in other eras and genres, the soundscape opens up tremendously. There’s more to a good music cue than syncing a great song to an important scene: Ideally, the song can put into words and music what the characters, and the world surrounding them, can’t quite express themselves. That’s what music does for all of us, after all — why should fictional characters be any different? Here are the ten best moments from a year of TV music that belong on everyone’s playlist.

The Biggest Questions for Showtime’s ‘Billions’ Heading Into Season 4 – Dec 11, 2018

Axe’s Fury – Axe’s Gauntlet

by Eric Schaal | Cheat Sheet | December 11, 2018

In some ways, the ending to Season three of Showtime’s Billions was unthinkable. How could Chuck Rhoades, the U.S. attorney who entire existence seems based on the power of his office, proceed without a job? Yet shortly after his downfall, we find him sipping wine with his wife and former arch-nemesis Bobby Axelrod.

Rhoades, played by Paul Giamatti, seems awfully comfortable sharing a bottle with Axe at his table. The same can be said of Axelrod, played by Damian Lewis. After his hedge fund’s star employee launched a rival operation, Axe needed to regroup.

This setup leaves open so many possibilities for the show’s Season four, which arrives in 2019 with at least one new cast member.  The Hollywood Reported revealed Samantha Mathis is joining the cast of the show for Season four. Mathis will play the chief operating officer (COO) of the recently formed Taylor Mason Capital.

Here are the biggest questions for the show and its characters ahead of the upcoming season:

Bobby Axelrod, the fictional hedge-fund manager in the Showtime series Billions, is getting his own slot machine — something Gordon Gekko could only dream of. The high stakes world of the hit TV show Billions will soon be coming to casinos, thanks to a licensing agreement between Aristocrat, CBS Consumer Products, and Showtime Networks.

The game will feature the popular Mighty Cash™ feature, as well as a $500,000 progressive start-up jackpot, according to a statement Wednesday. It will be unveiled in booth #1141 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the casino industry trade show that begins October 8 in Las Vegas.

According to Markets Business Insider,

“The Billions Slot Game is based on Season 1 and 2, which includes fans’ favorite characters such as Chuck RhoadesBobby AxelrodWendy RhoadesLara Axelrod, and Taylor Mason.

The game appears on Aristocrat’s revolutionary flame55™ cabinet. The flame55 is complete with a 55″ double-curved HD monitor – the largest portrait double-curved display in the non-jumbo segment – ergonomic engineering, 4k-capable display, 2.1 stereo audio, individually controlled dynamic infinity edge LED lighting, a virtual button deck, and an exclusive beacon sign package.
