I understand why this show might not immediately be on F13ers watchlist, but it is quite good. Who doesn't love a show about competing douchbags? They play pretty loose with the Wall Street talk to make it a bit more accessible. Damien Lewis, Maggie Siff and Paul Giamatti don't disappoint.

It's on Showtime.

I've been watching it with my wife and I think it's pretty good. There's some good character stuff going on with grey areas and wait who is the bad guy?

It is good for a few episodes, but for me it never recovers from when main character does the dumb thing at the negotiation. Everyone just starts doing even more dumb things to raise the stakes.

This is kinda soapy trash but highly enjoyable.  Watching Paul Giamatti chew the scenery is worth it.

Just finished S1 and loved it. Good actors doing fun stuff is always entertaining.
