All 12 episodes from the second season of the American financial drama starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis. Intent on reining in Wall Street exuberance, US attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) is instructed to go after powerful hedge fund king and multi-billionaire Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). Reluctant to risk his perfect prosecution record on the seemingly clean public figure, Rhoades is willing to wait for him to make a mistake. In this season, Axelrod attempts to reorganise his assets as he takes on a number of powerful rivals, while Rhoades looks for another high-profile case in order to rebuild his reputation. The episodes are: 'Risk Management', 'Dead Cat Bounce', 'Optimal Play', 'The Oath', 'Currency', 'Indian Four', 'Victory Lap', 'The Kingmaker', 'Sic Transit Imperium', 'With Or Without You', 'Golden Frog Time' and 'Ball in Hand'.

Of particular interest in addition to all the regular members of the cast who continue to perform consistently well is the character of an intern analyst (Taylor Mason) who becomes a protege of Axelrod and who is played by non-binary gender Asia Kate Dillon - the first such to appear on mainstream TV in the U.S.A.
Billions has been renewed by Showtime for a third series and there is plenty of mileage left to see which of the two titans eventually wins out. The fact that the show is loosely based on fact is not necessarily a guarantee that the outcome will be the same as happened back in 2013.
The extras comprise Being Billions / Making Billions in New York and They Theirs & Them. The only subtitles are English SDH.
One major astonishment though: the creation of a female character, who is married to one of the protagonists and yet the emotional advisor to the other. A brave choice and one I've never come across after 60 years of watching shows.
