Critic Reviews for The Third Ortolan

The first time we end up in negative territory this season! TO BE VERY CLEAR, this is to say, some plot points and events were a bit far fetched! Is the show still good? Yes!

Proof that having representation in the writers' rooms, no matter how traditionally "male" the subject matter, pays off.

What would happen if Chuck and Axe were thrown on the same team, by virtue of having no other options? This week's episode, "The Third Ortolan," sets up this enticing possibility.

The writing is incredibly tight, even when compared to the high standard Billions sets, to the point that there's little room to breathe in each scene.

Let's start with the ending, which is both unexpected and inevitable, as well as the most tantalizing set-up for the second half of the season imaginable.

From writer Alice O'Neill to director John Dahl to composer Eskmo... to the entire cast, Billions has served up a miniature masterpiece of ethical conundrums, shortcuts and sacrifices, exacting and enjoyable from start to finish.
