‘Billions’ and ‘The Good Fight’ tackle Trump era in contrasting ways

Yet the Showtime series feels more compelling by tangentially making its case, whereas the CBS All Access drama loses something by leaning directly into an anti-Trump stance, to the point of bashing the viewer over the head with it.
