That's my bad. I didn't look at the title of the video and just assumed that it was a trailer

You're a fucking godsend. Couldn't make Sunday's episode and now I get to watch it ahead of time? I would buy you a beer if you were in my area. If you're ever in South Florida I'll buy you a beer.

If you get Showtime through Amazon Prime you can watch the first episode of season two as soon as you sign up (I watched it last night). They are running a seven day free trial so you can watch the first episode and cancel.

Don't even need to sign up. You can watch the 1st episode for free on youtube via Showtime's channel. Thank me later

I still think the fake argument/fight scene was one of the best and absolutely hilarious.

It had never occurred to me that shows would sell a bunch of t-shirts and mugs; specifically the mug with the dollar sign handle. Incredible.

Love this show, I think the guy playing the chess hustler in the park is Maurice Ashley lol. He is a grandmaster in real life, awesome that they added him in like that.

it is. He actually did a video of pretty much this exact situation

Also the guy teaching Jiu-Jitsu is John Danaher, who is a absolute legend in the BJJ world. Very entourage-ish of adding these "stars"

Great scene

Feb 17, 2017

Is it just me or did anyone else think the first episode was kind of weak? I loved the first season, this episode seemed to have a lot of weird non-sequitur type of scenes that didn't lead anywhere or set anything else up. I won't say anything else because I don't want to give spoilers, but I didn't think the 2nd season started off super hot.

Feb 17, 2017

Is it just me or do I have an issue accepting Captain Winters from Band of Brothers (HBO) now twilighting as a HF owner.

Feb 23, 2017

Watch Homeland, I think that will clear up any hesitations you have.

Feb 17, 2017

After seeing this thread, I binged watched the entire show...

Feb 17, 2017

Yes! I just got into this show a month ago and binged watched the entire first season. Wags is the best character on the show. Also, still can't decide if Wendy is hot or not....

I've been having this exact debate in my head for as long as I can remember. It was settled this last episode when the cook said she "shames the angles." I thought to myself, I'd love to have a wife who looks like that when I'm as old as Chuck Rhodes.

I'm looking for a new series to watch. Would you recommend this?

Curious if anyone in HF or S&T actually likes this show. Honestly at times it is entertaining, but the unrealistic events and behaviors is a turn off for someone who knows that the industry is not really like this all that much with the exception of a few places. I know its a tv show, but still written by people who know what they are talking about.

Feb 17, 2017

yes

Feb 23, 2017

I'ts a TV show, created for entertainment purposes, not a documentary.

Nice cameo by Chanos.

Anyone else find the gender non-binary character contrived and a little cringey?

Mar 6, 2017

Seems like too much of an attempt to make this show "PC." They also tried that in season 1 with the lesbian scene, but honestly, I thought that was more organic than this character.

Mar 7, 2017

Lol did you see Dollar Bill's expression when Axe calls the character a "they"? Literally me every time I hear that somewhere

Apr 30, 2017

This show is the shit. We should get this thread going again for the last episodes of season 2.

Apr 30, 2017

In tonight's episode, are they insinuating that someone/ some firm staged the Chipotle E. coli outbreak to drag down the stock haha

Wow the ending to the most recent episode was incredible, I love this show

Wendy's short allocation is gonna screw Chuck on this yet again, show getting kind of repetitive. Chuck goes after Axe -> Wendy's relationship with both Axe and Chuck compromises the case -> Rinse & Repeat every season.

May 1, 2017

Well but looks like Chuck (is about to) screw Axe big time no?

Nothing is true; everything is permitted.

Feb 22, 2017

Isn't Wendy having a short position in the IPO, when Chuck set up the inside info to initiate the short play from Axe Cap, going to prevent him from doing so? Or in effect screw himself instead?

May 1, 2017

Hmm I see. Axe could spin that short into something like Chuck orchestrated the short play for his benefits, routed through Wendy. If Axe goes down that path though he would have to offer Wendy to SEC / that new US Attorney so then maybe that would be the last resort plan.

Any other way you see Axe could get out of this?

Nothing is true; everything is permitted.

Apr 30, 2017

WOW that episode was fucking good. Especially with the twist of Chuck getting someone else to do the dirty work to catch Axe, last season his office was doing all the leg work.

Also that scene with Bryan and Taylor was gold.

May 2, 2017

Who is Axelrod reportedly modeled after ?

Feb 22, 2017

I think Steve Cohen

May 2, 2017

you're right.

p.s. rare case when the second season is way better than the first.

Feb 16, 2017

Steve Cohen for sure, and seemingly a bit of Ray Dalio. Ray practices the same type of meditation and was a caddy at a golf course, just like Bobby in the show.

Dalio is also Catholic, attended non-target college & committed to Bill Gates's giving pledge -- all various things teased on the show.

I don't know who Bryan is but why did Dollar Bill give Taylor 250k? I had trouble hearing on my tv set.

Feb 17, 2017

I think it was for going through with that short position on that auto manufacturing company with the faulty breaks? It's still sketchy and I think this is all building up to Axe throwing Taylor under the bus to get out of this one, which sucks since Taylor has become one of my favorite characters. They've been building her/him up, getting the $250K under the table "with more to come", him/her saying how much he/she loves working at Axe Capital, going over the story of how his/her father got laid off which then "made the company thrive'. It's all setting up for a crushing blow and with Axe and Chuck taking on more collateral damage to combat each other. I could be wrong though....

I fuckin love this show, but last episode was the one that made me actually say it out loud to myself as the credits rolled. Insane.

One idea that I've heard and completelyyy hope comes to fruition, is if/when there will be a showdown between Taylor Mason and Oliver Dake.

    • 3
May 7, 2017

This showdown is sure to come. Hard to imagine why they would revive this character otherwise. To be honest though. I fucking hate Taylor. Political correct bullshit. Plus, they way he was talking about that town. He obviously has no fkcing idea about fiscal policies yet he preaches like the new Darwin.
Axe has clwed his way up and while i disagree with his philosophy i accept it. Taylor on the otherside has been bullied at school and that boohoo must make us sympathise with him.
