When “Billions” premiered in January 2016, it was a show to be taken very seriously. Co-created by the A-list screenwriting duo of Brian Koppelman and David Levien and esteemed New York Times financial reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin, and starring two Emmy award winning actors in Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, the Showtime series was well pedigreed for peak television. Could it do for Wall Street what “Mad Men” had done for advertising or “The Sopranos” for organized crime? Was this the next great American novel to be told in episodic form?

" Pulp Fiction" is quoted endlessly even today -- yet it still (somehow) manages to remain fresh. To honor the 20th anniversary of " Pulp Fiction" and its collection of unforgettable characters and dialogue, here are the 20 best quotes from the crime classic.

For its first two seasons, “Billions” has been content to shock and titillate in the manner of a great beach read. The characters may quote liberally from Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather,” but, in tone and temperament, the show has more in common with Mario Puzo’s pulpy bestseller on which that cinematic masterpiece was based. The saga of crusading U.S. attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and rapacious hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) has seen multiple reversals of fortune; Bobby torpedoed Chuck’s investigation into Axe Capital’s improprieties in the first season, while the second season ended with Chuck betraying his father and best friend (and obliterating his own trust fund) just for the ego-satiating pleasure of seeing Bobby in handcuffs. Season three kicked off with both men circling the drain, their death spiral threatening to drag the woman they both adore – Chuck’s wife and Axe Capital performance coach extraordinaire, Wendy (Maggie Siff) – down with them. They pulled out of it by pinning their spitefully convoluted misdeeds on a relatively innocent man.

Learner drivers now allowed on the motorway

  Learner drivers now allowed on the motorway Learners can now experience high-speed driving on Britain's motorways following a change in the law. Driving pupils must be on a lesson with an approved instructor and the car must also have dual controls.However, a motorway section is not being added to the test and it is not a mandatory part of lessons - it is up to the instructor to decide whether the learner is ready.Novices were previously only allowed on motorways after passing their test.

Beef, in its beginning stages, will never be produced that way because a simple fact remains : all cows eat grass. You need land to grow calves. Breed a Hereford with, say, a Brown Swiss and get a larger carcass with, perhaps, the same quality meat—or better !

Like so many of the best British artists from around that time, it seems once things clicked Pulp just churned out not only several classic albums in succession, but Along with “Babies,” “Razzmatazz” helped define Pulp as they came into their own. It remains one of their finest achievements.

Nobody gets away clean on “Billions” because, in this rarefied air, no one ascends without committing a sin or twelve. Some critics have complained that the main characters aren’t likable, and that the lavish milieu is harder to stomach in these ultra-corrupt – financially, politically and morally – times. Koppelman and Levien appeared to be answering this charge by imbuing Chuck with righteous purpose after dropping out of the New York gubernatorial race. Abhorred by the unjust prosecutorial focus of newly appointed U.S. Attorney General Waylon "Jock' Jeffcoat (Clancy Brown), Chuck was in the process of orchestrating a putsch by baiting this unholy hybrid of Jeff Sessions and Greg Abbott into obstructing justice. As the now drawn-into-the-muck Wendy put it, “It’s not enough to resist or not resist anymore. You have to assassinate this f-----, Chuck.”

Real-life political implications aside (“resist” is a weaponized word in 2018), the idea of Chuck trying to launder his soul by taking down hypocritical holy roller like Jeffcoat gave us a clear rooting interest for the first time in the series’ run. It was Chuck’s redemption arc. Bobby, on the other hand, was speeding directly into Michael Corleone territory by entertaining the murder of the unexpectedly disloyal Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon). Would he cave to the Russian oligarch investor (John Malkovich) he desperately courted upon returning to the helm of Axe Capital?

The final episode delivered dual gut punches to Chuck and Bobby: the former was outmaneuvered by vengeful former protégés, Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and Dake (Christopher Denham), while the latter couldn’t countenance the ultimate liquidation of his vengeful protégé. In the final scene, these two blood rivals who’ve battered each other for two gloriously tawdry seasons find themselves scheming together over a glass of wine as the ever-perceptive Wendy watches. A formidable new alliance has been formed. It’s Rocky Balboa teaming up with Apollo Creed to take down Clubber Lang, or Hulk Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage joining forces to conquer The Hart Foundation.

And it’s “Billions” embracing its crowd-pleasing instincts to become the high-toned royal rumble it was always meant to be. Novels are all well and good, but peak television just got its “Rocky III."
