Throwback Thursday to Catching Up With Bobby Axelrod at His Favorite Pizzeria

As I am longing for the good old days that I think we all took for granted, I would love to take you back to exactly  three years ago, a very cold evening in December 2018, when I caught up with Damian Lewis at Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria. ENJOY!

Bobby Axelrod Has Left The Building

I am not good at saying goodbyes. I want them to be as short and painless as possible. But there are times I first think the goodbye has been short and painless and then it starts to sink, makes me want to get it out of my chest and have a closure. The good-bye to Bobby Axelrod falls in this category.

While Gingersnap and Lady Trader immediately knew that they would write their own personal odes to their favorite character Bobby Axelrod, I confess I did not think I would write one for him. Continue reading “Bobby Axelrod Has Left The Building”

Billions on Showtime, Season 5 Episode 9: Implosion

This fast-paced and very clever Billions episode gives us an extremely fun and most Billions-y hour this season. All the characters have to read their opponent and make decisions very fast. It is like watching a wild boxing match – punch, punch, punch, and a big knock out. That said I am sure there will be a thrilling rematch!

It has been 24 hours since they acquired a bank. However, it seems Axe is focusing on everything but the bank! Continue reading “Billions on Showtime, Season 5 Episode 9: Implosion”

Take the M Train to Billions: A Visit to Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria *UPDATED*

bobbypizza7

We already published Billions Season 1 Dining Guide,  Season 2 Dining Guide, Season 3 Dining Guide, and Season 4 Dining Guide, but Bruno and his Capparello’s Pizzeria or real life Rosa’s Pizza have become such a staple in the show that the pizzeria absolutely deserves its special tribute!

Bobby Axelrod, as much as he is a man of confidence, seems to feel most comfortable in his skin at Capparello’s echoing that Yonkers boy who wants to “get rich and get even” when he grows up. Every scene at this corner pizza joint reveals a thing or two about Bobby and THIS alone makes a trip to Rosa’s a MUST for me and my partner-in-crime Lewisto. And a comment on the blog from a reader, Alaston, saying “If you DO go to Rosa’s, get the Grandma slice” triggers it that we find ourselves on the M train heading to Rosa’s in August 2016.

So who folds it better? Bobby or Me?

We start with a virtual trip, revisiting the four scenes we saw at Capparello’s in Season 1 before our real trip, and highlight what we learn about Bobby in each one. Then we follow up with our real trip to Rosa’s Pizza and discuss the use of the pizzeria in the following seasons of the show.

Bon Appetite! Continue reading “Take the M Train to Billions: A Visit to Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria *UPDATED*”
