    Anybody watching this?
    New HBO show to rival Billions with none of the charm even though it was created by the writer from Peep Show.
    Every single character bar the comic relief is reprehensible. I've also never seen a tone change as between episode 2 and 3. It somehow went from a tense thriller to a slap stick comedy.
    Season finale also airs tonight.

    Doesn't really sound like a recommendation!

    Well, I'm guessing Brian Cox is the man you're supposed to sympathise with but he does hit a child and sends a card to a cancer sufferer saying best wishes to the cancer..

    I've heard good things about it but personally l'm done with TV shows about the problems of the super rich.
