Billions Part 2

I finished up season 1 of Billions today.  Decently entertaining show.

I wrote a little bit about Eps 1-5 the other day.  After finishing episodes 6-12 there were only about 1-2 very brief Femdom scenes during the second half as well as the answers to some of the questions I had in relation to this.  If I had to give an overall view on this in the show, the Femdom was more about a male sub who needs it to hold himself together more than a woman enjoying being in the dominant role.  All in all, the Femdom totaled maybe 12-15 minutes of screen time across 12 episodes. 

Again, trying to go without any spoilers...

The ego-driven pissing matches between men got a little bit frustrating.  Watching some of the men self-destruct in such a way is probably why I'm pro-Female Supremacy. 

On the other hand, the show has several extremely strong female characters.  They are less concerned with posturing and more concerned with just getting done what needs to be done.  I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but it's almost like just about every male is a dirt bag, and the women just do their thing (very well) while trying to hold things together.

I still enjoyed the Wendy character very much.  Watching her balance her own feelings with what she has to do in any given moment is enjoyable to watch. 

I will add that I don't think the things above affect being able to enjoy a show or not, I think I was just noticed them a lot since I went into it searching for the D/s connections.


  1. I enjoyed the show a lot, including the few D/s sequences. I found it interesting that a strong, powerful male character clearly needed the release of his submissive side, and equally as interesting that his wife helped provide it. Reminded me of a couple I know very well. Now who could that be?

    The matter of trust also came up, and it proved to be a critical part of the story. Once again, no spoilers here, but I liked that part a lot.

    1. Thank you, Lady Grey. I enjoyed it as well and will be watching the second season when it comes out. I had guessed those parts would resonate with you :)

      Trust was huge. The scene with Troy was quite interesting. I think what donned on me as strange was his efforts to maintain trust on one front while being able to violate it so easily on another. I can relate to feeling all screwed up in the head because of the need for D/s, but at times I was like "C'mawn man, this is all your fault!"
