    This is probably one of the best shows I have ever watched. The way it grew on me is insane. Like I'm borderline missing my stop on the train home, I'm that into EVERY episode. I'm in the middle of season 3.

    Damian Lewis (Bobby Axelrod) and Maggie Siff (Wendy) are great BUT the real MVP is Paul Giamatti (Chuck). That dude is so good in this show its ridiculous. Great acting.

    Like you @shiznit , Im amazed I didnt hear about it sooner.

    I was a late starter on this too but it’s one of my favourite shows. Next season should be interesting

    Season 4 just finished.

    Surprisingly just keeps getting better and better, such a good series.

    Agreed it’s one of the best shows around, the two leads are brilliant. Set up nicely for season 5 as well.

    Probably the only show I’ve liked where I hate everyone in it

    I watched the pilot and this honestly comes across like a contrived and over-produced pseudo-drama.

    I only just finished all five seasons of The Wire recently, so perhaps I set the bar a little high, but... meh. There wasn't enough to grab me in order to continue watching it.

    You can't watch a show like Billions with The Wire in your head recently. They're two different things - Billions is just pulp entertainment, but done well and it's generally bonkers and fun. You don't watch it for anything more than that.
