Billions Is Better Than Game of Thrones
I know fantasy is kickass. I love elves and dragons and magic just as much as the next D&D geek.
But there's something to be said for consistently strong characters and a story of revolving alliances, rivalries, betrayals, and sworn enemies.
If you want to watch a modern day Game of Thrones that never drops the ball, I wholeheartedly recommend the Showtime tv show Billions.
Like GoT, an episode can turn on a dime. Events that most series would milk for an entire season, Billions deals with in an episode or two. Which means there's always something compelling just around the corner. It feels like an immersive sandbox. I guess that's my OSR connection.
Anyways, watched the season 4 finale, and it was superbly awesome! The series has been picked up for another season next year. I'm just excited and wanted to share my love for Billions. Watch it!
