Critic reviews for The Good Life

Yes, "The Good Life" of Bobby and company looks good from afar, but we've yet to get close enough to know for sure.

A glorious return to positive territory for Billions for as we bank Plus 3 with the episode ending on a strong note.

When you name an episode after the 7th best track on Weezer's best album, you best come correct. The Good Life falls short in this regard but still amounts to a perfectly fine, above average episode.

The show tries to have it both ways, which cheapens his internal conflict....If Billions is working toward some larger theme beyond sexy soap operatics, then I'm not seeing it yet.

It's happening, it's all happening! Tonight's episode is jam-packed with action.

I love this episode's focus on the expanded supporting cast. Billions will work better if the fringe characters are as interesting as the central ones.
