I love shows about power. This show is watchable. But, as a show about power, I think it under-delivers very much. The characters don't manifest that deep hunger for power in itself, a hunger that radiates off of them and hangs heavily in the atmosphere of the show, that for example Underwood in House of Cards, Pacino in Godfather or Scarface, manifest.Billions, on Showtime, is finally back on. Production for Season 5 (Episode 7) was shut down last June due to COVID. Episode 8 finally aired yesterday (Sunday). It’s a pretty good drama series about greed, power, and corruption. It has had its ups and downs over the years, but I’d still give it a 5/5 overall

I had a hard time finishing Cry Macho. I'd rate it 2/5.
Started this on your recommendation. Just finished ep. 2. Great show. Would love to know of any similar shows, with grisly men in a grisly environment, etc.
