I had a bunch of episodes saved and finally decided to catch up today. Boy am I glad I did. What a run this show is on. It’s the most intense chess game.

I've saved the last 5 or 6 episodes, and I'm going to binge watch at some point.

Its turned into one of the best shows on tv by not taking itself too seriously

Too many shows think dark automatically equals great, billions went the fun almost pulpy route and became so great because of it

Watching lewis and giamatti is a treat, they look like they are having a blast

I think you're bang on. They have kept it kind of a fun roller coaster ride and chess match without getting super dark but also without getting ridiculously outlandish and melodramatic with a bunch of bad soap opera worthy twists.

Wags is easily my favorite character on TV right now. He absolutely nails every scene and episode he's in. And I think the writers know this because he's getting a lot of screen time this season.

My only complaint is that we need more asian dominatrix, not less. Although it usually comes at a cost, namely seeing Paul Giamatti almost naked.

The best Wags line amoung many was

Axe Kid:Uncle Wags want to come to our ball game
Wags: What League
Ax Kid: Little league
Wags: Sorry Banned for Life

And then he walks away and the show never comes back to it. Anything about the Wags back story this season has been so good

What is exciting about season 4 for me is that the story is going in an entirely new direction. No longer is it Axe vs. Chuck. The show always did well keeping away from linear story telling and created complex characters, but this seems to take it in a whole new direction.

Agreed. I was worried the show would drag out the Chuck vs Axe until they’d milked every last drop and it got boring but they’ve done a wonderful job at shifting the story to something different while not betraying either character.

Axe and Chuck as a team bent of retribution and revenge is like a team of two nasty super smart Sith Lords.


I expect that they're going to leave a trail of scorched earth.
