Sneak Peek: Billions: Season 3 Sneak Peek

"So yeah, there’s a lot going on. But the brilliance of Billions lies in acting like there isn’t, moving at a breakneck speed through every convoluted concept and complex plotline. Dialogue whips past in huge, devastating chunks, dense with pop-culture quotes, literary allusions, legal and financial jargon, elaborate and often profane metaphors... and a ton of brutal bon mots...The pacing and writing reflect the culture of its characters. You can either keep up, or give up."

"The season 3 premiere, Tie Goes to the Runner, is a welcome affirmation that Billions isn’t slowing down any time soon. The opening scene is, on its own, enough to quell any doubts about a slump for this show."
