Billions TV Show

Updated on August 29, 2017

I think I just found my new favourite TV series after all I quote Bobby Axelrod : “ There can only be one!” Guys I have a collection of TV series that I watch but recently Billions just caught my attention. I then decided to wrote a type of review/blog about the show to give a few people an insight what to expect from Billions if they start watching it.

About Billions

Well the series starts off where you are introduced to one of the main characters Robert Bobby Axelrod the billionaire and owner of Axe Capital. Axe Capital is one of the biggest hedge fund firms within the Southern District of New York maybe even bigger. Bobby became one of a kind philanthropist as he donated and contributed millions of dollars to welfare funds and foundations. He even bought the naming rights to the Ellis hall and renamed it Axelrod Hall.

Well it is not long before Bobby falls on the radar of the US attorney and perhaps the SEC as well. The US attorney Chuck Rhoades Jnr who is married to one of Bobby’s employees Wendy Rhodes has his sights set on prosecuting Bobby Axelrod. Check has prosecuted many investors and hedge fund managers for insider trading and securities fraud. He even went as far as to send on of his father’s friends to jail and refusing to set a deal for house arrest. Guys this district attorney is brutal and has his sights set on Bobby. The fight is on guys so who do you think will be left standing in the ring ? Bobby Axelrod vs Chuck Rhoades…

      Sounds like a super TV show, the type of story I like, in book form. I very seldom view TV although I am a compulsive reader. No matter where I am, if I see any reading matter I have to investigate.
