How many days to go until Billions is back on our screens you ask? Why, 32 days to be exact. But who’s counting? Spoiler: We are!!! March 25 cannot get here fast enough. Till we get some juicy new stuff to write about, here’s a revisit to the books seen on the various shelves of Billions last season.
Shows that care, like Billions, speak volumes with what they choose to put on the shelves behind the characters as they go about their Billion-y business. Books are about setting the stage and providing props for the characters and the action. Most interestingly, the placement of books is about saying a thing or two about the character who owns them, in a language both visual and textual (if you look closely enough :)) Alternatively, barring such esoteric “meaning”, at the very least, books laying about can be fun Easter eggs that may say a thing or two about the folks who put the show together.
So, join me as we browse through the bookshelves of Billions.
