Billions may have ended, but we have not stopped thinking about the stories and characters that we have lived with these past 7 season.
We challenged ourselves to pick our “7 of 7” – our top 7 episodes from 7 seasons of Billions. Did any of our top 7 make your list? What’s your favorite episodes and why?
OMG it was incredibly hard to narrow down my most favorite episodes to seven… but now that I have my seven, when I look at them, I get that I really like cerebral storylines, risky moves, long games, killer closing scenes, and Karyn Kusama who is the director of two episodes in my top 7 list. And if I am able to figure out a twist in the episode before it is revealed, then I love it even more 😀

According to Wikipedia, a prop, formally known as theatrical property, is an object used on stage or screen by actors during a performance or production. In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes, and electrical equipment. Based on that definition, clothing, shoes, hats or scarves would typically be out of play, but we are going to bend the rule just a bit and allow it! Interesting enough, consumable food items appearing in a production could be considered props, too.
So you know what all this means? It’s game time! Name three stage or screen props you would most like to own from the set of any of Damian’s theatre, film or television series and explain why. As an added bonus, some of us came up with an original or funny use of the prop, without using the prop the way it was intended. Let’s play Prop Improv with Damian Lewis.

With that the Variety Actors On Actors segment featuring Damian Lewis and Claire Danes begins. She’s locked down in her New York apartment while he is roaming the English countryside in search of a signal. Thank God he found it! For the ensuing 34.05 minutes (with commercials 🙁 ugh) we are transported back to CarrieBrodyland. Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Brody and Carrie Reunion at Variety’s Actors on Actors”
Damianista’s note: We published this post by Holliedazzle on May 3, 2016 just after Wolf Hall aired on PBS Masterpiece. And we’re sharing it again more than seven years later to celebrate the return of the king to film the sequel to Wolf Hall adapted from Hilary Mantel’s final volume of the Cromwell Trilogy The Mirror and The Light.
I’ll admit to not being the most educated person. I spent most of high school just trying to pass the time and get out with a diploma. I wasn’t a bad student, but when you decide on beauty school in your sophomore year, suddenly AP History and three hours a night of homework seem kind of like a waste of time. And I certainly didn’t spend my two study halls a day reading up on history, math or science. Now, as an adult, I am revisiting these subjects with a newly-found appreciation. I am learning things as a 36 year old woman that most people learn in high school. The history of The Tudors has been my newest interest, and I have Wolf Hall to thank for opening me up to something new. Continue reading “Damian Lewis Created a Monster”
If you have been following this blog for some time, you certainly know about my obsession with Homeland and Brody in particular. And so you probably think this post is yet another one about my all-time favorite fictional character…
Well, you’re wrong! 🙂
This post is about Damian Lewis and My Homeland – the country that I was born and raised in: Turkey. I have been inspired to write this post in London in August 22 when Damian signed the set list I lifted at his first live music gig in Turkish:
“Tesekkur, Bahar.” (“Thanks, Bahar.”)
