    Haven't seen a thread for this show.

    I'm really into it. Love the storyline. I do find it hard to believe that Paul Giamatti's character would have such a hot wife (the brunette from SOA), but maybe it's the dominatrix thing that attracts them to each other. Don't want to say anymore and give anything away.

    I'm watching it. It's a good show with smart, well written, interesting plot lines, and the actors are all phenomenal. Damn right I'm watching it.

    Horrible writing - too far fetched. It's a C+ at best but there is nothing else on and its the doldrums of the sports season.

    Liking it. Based on some of the real life BS that goes on in all areas of the public and privates sectors the storyline is not too far fetched.

    I can't understand how people say a TV show is too far fetched. It's a TV show! It's entertainment! It's not meant to be real. Even "reality" TV and documentaries are highly edited and/or slanted.

    I watch TV to suspend my mind from reality. I want far fetched. Far fetched is usually more entertaining than actual reality.

    Good but not great. I find myself looking for times when Bobby Axe fucks up his fake ny accent and the real british voice comes out. Pig Vomit is extra creepy in this show. Nalin Malin is a hot minx. The Baltimore Sun editor from Season 5 of The Wire plays Axes gal friday. He is the best part of the show. Nice boobage in various episodes. The BDSM subplot is the lamest part. Grade B-. After getting thru the pilot and watching the second episode of Vinyl, I am liking that show more than Billions.
