Critic reviews for The Deal
Short of renaming the show Wendy 'n' Wags, the writers are going to have to slow waaaaaaaay down with the casework and simply spend time with some of these people, to convince us it's worth our while to do the same.
Holy cats, a monster score for Billions, absolutely killing it with a return of plus 8 for the episode! Crazily enough, I was left wondering if this episode could possibly be TOO real?
Billions brings us a confrontation earlier than expected, makes it seem like its going to fundamentally change the direction of the show, then settles into just a really good mid-season ending scene.
"The Deal" expresses the primal nature of men as strongly as any episode since the pilot, but "Billions" is about the folly of men, too, and it takes the presence of women like Wendy and Lara Axelrod to expose it.
