Succession HBO series

Anyone else watching Succession? Waiting on Season 4.
All the characters are rather revolting, but it's difficult to look away... The show imagines the infighting in an extremely wealthy family in media, possibly something like the Murdock or Ailes families. Who will take control? Here's a link.

(I didn't realize BookTalk has a section for TV etc. until I saw the thread about The Waltons.)

Re: Succession HBO series

My wife and I are currently watching Season 3 of Succession and it's our favorite series. Yes, they're all truly revolting people. I like that choice of words. Very fitting. I've read that Succession is "slightly" based on Rupert Murdoch and his family.

Jeremy Strong (Kendall) is working SUPER hard in this series. One week he's ready to take over the empire, the next he's sitting on the floor crying... Wow...

Man you are so right. He's hard to figure out. I sit there watching him wondering if he's going to be that super confident person or a stuttering and stammering child.

Roman is absolutely hilarious. In fact all characters are pretty impressive. Great writers for this show.

Re: Succession HBO series

I'm thinking Roman has the best business sense of the kids. Logan relies on him a fair amount to check out potential deals and Roman cuts right to the chase in his analysis. My feminist daughter is very impressed with his relationship with Gerri, the only show where a younger man is "with" an older woman. Although Roman seems too messed up to be a leader.

Conner has the worst sense of reality, believing he is a viable presidential candidate. Oh and believing that marrying a prostitute will make him a bulletproof candidate. :x

Re: Succession HBO series

The final episode of Season 3 was emotionaly intense. Seeing Ken like that was tough. I can't wait to see what happens in Season 4.

Re: Succession HBO series

That's part of why I said Jeremy Strong is working so hard in this series. Amazing.

What do you think of Logan shouting "I F-ING WON!" That's going to change / destroy some family dynamics, ay?
