Effortlessly shifts between a serious family drama to a farcical exploration of power and wealth.

The series has given us 10 of the best hours we have lived in the last 10 weeks. To witness the riches misery is engaging. How wonderful it is to hate the Roy's. [Full Review in Spanish]

Season 2 successfully creates turbulent bouts that would be so absurd were they not partially based on truth. [Full Review in Spanish]

The extended cast includes great stealth actors like J. Smith-Cameron as Gerri, the corporation's chief counsel, and Hiam Abbass as Logan's supportive but steely third wife.
October 16, 2019
Succession returned for a darkly funny, whip-smart, and brilliantly performed second run that leaves us begging for more and assured that the show is the best thing on television.

Treachery has rarely felt so good.

Succession, the best of the lot, is a tightly wound spring of a show, the kind of addictive TV drama that rewards second and third viewings.

The performances are so compelling it is hard to look away, but the effect is like watching a car crash you are somehow also involved in.
September 25, 2019
Old, entitled babies make for brilliant comedy.
September 11, 2019
It's must-see, gripping and sometimes horrifying because it often keeps its characters in one enclosed place or another.
September 10, 2019
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.
September 9, 2019
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]
September 9, 2019
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.
August 30, 2019
Succession is a series about monstrous rich people that manages to be exhilarating and grim as hell at the same time.
August 29, 2019
The Supreme Roy Family returns in all their powerful glory in Succession
August 29, 2019
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.
August 26, 2019
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.
