Critic reviews for Risk Management

As far as establishing stakes are concerned, Billions Season Two has come in hella high.

A very solid outing ending in positive territory for the first episode of Season 2.

TV's most underrated drama - when you stare long enough at it is a workplace comedy and then when you zoom back out is an American tragedy - returned to Showtime tonight and oh boy, was it firing on all cylinders.

The season premiere finds the stress and paranoia of this protracted battle weighing heavily on both men, who are committed to locking horns no matter how miserable it makes them.

It's not the most thrilling premiere, and the first half is especially bogged down by the necessities of checking in with all of the show's major players...the episode really picks up in its second half.

I love how often a testosterone-heavy show like Billions turns to female directors.
