It's must-see, gripping and sometimes horrifying because it often keeps its characters in one enclosed place or another.

The show's slow burn unfolds like an Edith Wharton novel. The early scenes establish the contours of each lavish room-so that later, when it all falls apart, you can fully comprehend the destruction.

Succession is often angled as an upper-crust drama, but in fact... it succeeds as a dark comedy, a satire full of despicable characters that are inexplicably delightful to watch.

Much better than Dynasty or Falcon Crest; better written, better interpreted, more complex and bold, but without losing that air of soap opera with very bad guys and traitors and ambitious in general. [Full Review in Spanish]

Between...larger discussions of the malleability of values in the face of extravagant wealth, "Tern Haven" finds plenty of ways to put the Roys through the psychological wringer.

Succession is a series about monstrous rich people that manages to be exhilarating and grim as hell at the same time.

The Supreme Roy Family returns in all their powerful glory in Succession

Back for its second season, Succession is better than ever; it's hilarious, intelligent, and primarily a scathing indictment of wealthy people who don't know, nor care, that the decisions they make affect the lives of millions.

And certainly, this new season looks set to be a lot of fun -- that's if you like your fun to be provided by awful people gleefully spewing poisonous, foul-mouthed barbs at each other.
August 23, 2019
Masterful in the ways it builds anticipation both in the micro-events of each episode and in the broader plot.
August 23, 2019
Certainly more entertaining that its ham-fisted first season.

The comic tone is slightly more to the fore in season 2, though dark drama is never far away. It's confusing at times but it's every bit as compelling as first time around.
August 22, 2019
There is enough back-stabbing and secretive planning among the Roys to keep them joyless - and to keep us joyfully entertained - for some time to come.
August 21, 2019
The series is much more than a straight satire - although in the hands of creator Jesse Armstrong... it is an excellent one.

If, like me, you initially dismissed this show, it's time you circle back to the best parable about corporate America since The Wolf of Wall Street.

A diamond hard comedy drama where the laughs are funereal bleak and most of the characters wish each other dead, it is difficult to choose a favourite monster from the bunch.
August 16, 2019
Strong gives a remarkable performance as an extremely fragile and isolated figure.
August 15, 2019
Because it's so much more interested in the comedy of the cluelessness super-rich, it insulates the audience from the real world as well.
August 15, 2019
There's not enough absorbency in a tissue factory to mop up the verbal effluent when the warring siblings and their irascible patriarch get together to talk business.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

The deliciously wicked HBO drama returns for its second season and it is more charged, more intoxicating and more must-see than the last.
