Succession

  1. I’m brand new to this show and have watched all episodes in just a fortnight - it’s even better than I was expecting it to be. How good are all the characters. And the writing. And the title music. Love love love.
     
  2. This is the best show on TV at the moment. I live for all the backstabbing.
     
  3. The latest episode felt like treading ground a little bit. Nice verbal sparring but ultimately we ended up at the same spot?

  4. I feel like we had to watch all of that unfold, even if we did end up in (sort of) the same place. The idea that they all want to get away from their dad and make a name for themselves but none of them have the spine to do it says so much about their family dynamics. They're all willing to fuck over whoever they need to if it will get them to the top, but at the same time, they're all too scared to step outside of their dad's shadow. Whether anyone would move to team Kendall was a question that had to be answered, and this did that in the way that felt most authentic to these characters. The fact that they were all terrified that their father sent them poisoned donuts pretty much says it all. I actually just thought this episode was a ton of fun, too, from the dialogue to how everyone played it. I've really enjoyed the pace of the first two episodes.

  8. So it was Kendall? I thought it might have been a disgruntled employee but a podcast I listen to said it was him. Did I look down at my phone and miss something?
     
  9. Yeah there were empty speaker boxes in his office, but I figured it was him before it even got to that scene.
     
  10. That's TV in the Covid era for you, I guess.

  11. Oh I think it was Logan, but making people assume it was Kendall. I reckon he's trying to make sure Shiv turns against him and stays on side.

  12. If it’s any consolation they’re definitely going to Italy towards the end of the season.
     
    Mike and spaceship like this.
  13. Kendall sent a guy out with a shopping list, and was wanting to be sure when the Town Hall started. It was definitely him.

  14. To be fair though, she got done what Tom couldn’t.

  15. SBK

    Took me three attempts at series one. I could tell it was good but 55min episodes with seemingly endless scenes of hushed discussions had me reaching for my phone too often...

    Managed to make it to the board room scene of season one on my latest attempt and was hooked.

    Haven't started season three yet, might wait for it to finish so I can watch it all in one go.[/QUOTE]
     
  16. The way Shiv is so desperate for even a crumb of her dad's approval and he gives her nothing. It's painful to watch, yet you can't look away.
     
  17. She's become SO cringe since leaving her role as a political strategist to join Waystar. She both tries to be a boss bitch and take the lead, while also pandering to her Dad, and you can tell Logan hates it. Painful. Testament to her acting though!
     
  18. Kendall told her you're the next me and she really is.

    That said, Kendall's glimmer of happiness at seeing his dad only for him to completely reject him yet again was heartbreaking. This show is becoming a little too cruel for me, especially coming from an emotionally distant family.

  19. This season is shaping-up to be a look on how the 0,1% are extremely incompetent, highly-functioning morons enabled by hordes of sycophants.

    Nobody really knows what they are doing - all their actions are egoic, and entire companies (with huge implications on reality) are managed with a vacuous viciousness. The 4 sons (and their father) have no idea on how to run a business, how to be professional, or what is like to have an ethical spine. All power, no humanity.

    At the end, it's all about private jets - it's always about the private jets, isn't it?
     
  20. I need Shiv to have a win at some point this season, God. And where the hell is Alexander Skarsgard character?
    Also do we think they're brave enough to kill Logan this season? They're playing too much into how old he is etc. His character would be massively missed.
