Critic Reviews for Not You, Mr. Dake

An extraordinary episode of the glossy financial drama... Billions began in the Obama years as a fight between right and wrong. As the drama evolves to mirror the Trump era, those distinctions have become very blurry.

OK, so we are back in positive territory, but just barely. Something about this episode though felt a bit off.

This episode deserves a place on the Mount Rushmore of Billions episodes. It's one that leaned heavily on the fascinating moral compass of Axe Capital's lovable doofus Mafee.

We would spend more time on it but this episode was really just filler to get rid of the whole Ice Juice thing so we wouldn't have to keep saying "Ice Juice" or remember that so much of Billions has focused on something called Ice Juice.

"Not You, Mr. Dake" scrambles the chronology in such a fluid fashion that it's never confusing; every piece fits into place in the script by Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

Written by two of the series's creators, Brian Koppelman and David Levien, and directed with dot-connecting confidence by Michael Morris, this is Billions at its best. Ever, I'd say.

The episode takes a storytelling approach familiar to Billions, jumping around in time, using the disjointed narrative as a way to create tension and unpredictability. It works really well most of the time, and yet feels unnecessarily convoluted here.

May 7, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

For an episode that really screws up some innocent lives, it has a delightfully gonzo-heist vibe, which could have felt dismissive but actually adds a queasy note that elevates the whole thing.
