  1. Last Sunday, 18 January, Showtime launched a new series BILLIONS starring Paul Giamatti as a hard-charging UA Attorney and Maggie Siff as his psychiatrist wife. I agree with the many critics who feel Msggie gives the best performance. The cast of BILLIONS is outstanding. Based on the single episode shown I have hopes this will be the next MAD MEN, covering the world of hedge funds and those trying to regulate them.
