Classic Billions Drama of High-Stakes Wheeling and Dealing
by Stephen Spignesi | New Haven Register | March 13, 2019
Showtime’s hit series “Billions” returns March 17 for its fourth season at its new time of 9 p.m. and opens with a sticky (yet irresistible) dramatic conundrum: At the end of last season, a few too many loyal Axe Capital employees had morphed into enemies and competitors — and hundreds of millions and, yes, billions of dollars are now at stake.
If the first four episodes are harbingers of the rest of the season, Season 4 — in addition to delivering the classic “Billions” drama of high-stakes wheeling and dealing — is going to be more fun than ever. In this season, for example, we get to see Chuck Rhoades (New Haven’s own Paul Giamatti) chair dance and (sort of) moonwalk, and we watch gender non-binary Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) strut in a short black dress, long black wig and heels (Wags (David Costabile) opines: “Kate Jackson hot”).
