Board’s thoughts on Succession (HBO)
Just finished binging it and I’m hooked. I don't know what is about wealthy train wrecks of families that are so damned addictive...

Thoughts?

Best show on TV right now. Show is great. Trending towards an all time great if it keeps the same pace.

If not anything else, at least Alan Ruck is getting regular paychecks now.

Love it. Did a rewatch of the first 2 seasons a couple of months ago. Imagine it will be a while before we get season 3. Doesn’t seem like a show that would be easy to film in pandemic circumstances

I feel like my parents saying this...

I like Succession but the profanity and crudeness is over the top. It's like WOWS x1000. It takes a lot for me to even notice that stuff, much less find it distracting.

Love succession. Trying to hold off my rewatch until we get a little closer to a new season. Cousin Greg adds such a good dynamic to the show. Not sure I’d like it as much if he wasn’t in the show

re: Board’s thoughts on Succession (HBO)

I plowed through it but I'm not really sure what all the hype is about. It's character driven and the characters aren't really that interesting to me (although the acting is fine). And nobody seems to have any redeeming characteristics - it's just a bunch of dysfunctional a-holes with nobody to root for. Adding a bunch of zeros to their bank accounts doesn't do much for me, but that's just personal taste.

It kind of comes across as HBO spending $100 million to attack the Murdoch family using more style than substance.

Amazing show. Turned it on not too long before season two came out and had never heard of it somehow, I immediately binged the entire season in disbelief that it took me that long to find the show.

Edit: Shiv is the worrrrst . Ready for Greg to make his power move.

The series must end with Greg running the company

I think all of America is with you on that front. He is the only character, imo that has relatable qualities, although they slowly wane a bit as he gets further into that world.

I’ll be the only upvote yeah it’s compound foul language constantly.

Doesn’t bother me too much but it is there.

I’m almost done with season 2 and this is absolutely my theory without knowing how it will end my wife thinks I’m crazy.

I’m convinced he’s just going to flip the switch Keyser Soeze style and be this ruthless sociopath.
