Sneak Peek: We're Mixing Into Private Equity For Real

"Only two episodes into the season, and already I am way more interested in Taylor outwitting Andolov than anything to do with Chuck or Axe. Mainly because Taylor is coming at this with limited allies and a discernible amount of fear..."


"Zugzwang is a delightful word for a dispiriting concept. In chess, zugzwang occurs when it’s your move, but your opponent has cannily set you up to dig yourself deeper into defeat... And as Taylor Mason’s ruthless new right-hand woman, Sara Hammon (Samantha Mathis), realizes in this week’s episode of “Billions,” zugzwang is the name of the game for every player on the board right now."
