Critic Reviews for Dundee

The cat-and-mouse game between Shiv and Rhea energizes what is, overall, a very entertaining Succession.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Tonight's episode eschews any table-setting, opting to dive right in and give the people what they want: Kendall Roy, rapping.

There are few better positions in the Successionverse better than "secretly poised to strike," and Shiv ends the episode literally crouched to pounce.

There's a looseness to Sarah Snook's performance in "Dundee" that plays directly against the fact that every other member of the Roy family seems to be more and more on #TeamRhea.

Rhea is good. She's very good at manipulating the Roy kids by playing to their insecurities. But she learned she's no match to their years of cunning, and even when they aren't all on the same team, an outsider is going to lose.

Holly Hunter's character does a great job of keeping a poker face -- she's conniving and manipulative and it's really hard to tell if anything that comes out of her mouth has a shred of sincerity to it.

This week's episode of Succession felt like it was crafted to illustrate my argument that the show's blend comedy and drama is fundamentally unworkable by the gods themselves.

Does the Logan/Ewan dynamic remind anyone else of Albus and Aberforth Dumbledore? Anyone?

There's a snake in the grass, and her name is Shiv, and we love her.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The rap is honestly so potent that I have pretty much blacked out everything else that happens in this episode.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Kendall has been all over the place these last few episodes, from standing up to his dad after Logan slapped Roman to nearly confessing to his mom that he killed that waiter. It's really like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

One of the more illuminating realizations to come out of the episode is that celebrations, milestones, and victories all come as diminished or tainted with this group.
