Succession (HBO series)
« on: Oct 24, 2021 at 01:22 AM »
I checked. There doesn't seem to be a thread for this. The third season just began this week. I have to say I'm really loving this show.

Are you guys #TeamLogan or #TeamKendall?  >:D

I've just finished the 3rd season.  I think it's a really good series but do take note that the first season is not as good as the 2nd or 3rd seasons.  Basically, you ride through the first season to get context on the brilliance of the 2nd and 3rd seasons.

The first season seemed more like a comedy but the 2nd and 3rd both shine as dramedies.  Very good writing and really good performances (the show has had a good amount of Emmy awards and nominations), plus an over-the-top budget makes this an enjoyable series to watch.

Enjoy!

Started watching this series during the HW break. This is such an excellent TV series - the writing is superb, along with the cast. It's like a modern day GOT.

I regret having started late. Now I'm frantically trying to catch up after seeing spoilers on social media about the latest episode of the final season. :'(

We deserve better.

Personally, I'd watch out for Cousin Greg.

Kaya nagulat ako when you said Greg is going to be a major player, lol.

I guess that's kind of a spoiler too by me quashing that, but hey, it's already season 4. Hehe.

Finally caught up with the latest episodes from Season 4. Didn’t think the creator/writers could top the brilliance of the earlier seasons, but they did with Season 4 - and there are five more episodes to go. The show really deserves all the accolades and social media mileage it’s getting.
We deserve better.

My favorite lines of this season so far (from Tom):

"Because she’s brought a ludicrously capacious bag. What’s even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? I mean, Greg, it’s monstrous. It’s gargantuan. You could take it camping. You could slide it across the floor after a bank job."

‘Succession’ Series Finale: ‘It’s 90 Minutes. It’s a Huge Episode, Like a Movie’

HBO’s “Succession” series finale will be 90 minutes long, according to one of the key members of its creative team.

“It’s 90 minutes,” Emmy winning composer Nicholas Britell said. “It’s a huge episode — like a movie.”

The episode will be directed by “Succession” executive producer Mark Mylod, and will air on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, May 28.

^ Hard to believe that this is just around the corner. Looking forward to the finale after the intense buildup in the past few episodes. Hope Jesse Armstrong delivers a satisfying ending.

The penultimate episode wasn't as intense as last week's.  I'm guessing that is deliberate as a build up to what the finale will be.

So it's Tom (with Shiv as a winner by marriage and the baby).

That was the logical ending, IMO. I'm satisfied; the question that the series posed five years ago has been finally answered. Still curious about what happens next though. :D 

I'm going to miss this show - from the classic opening theme to the unforgettable and brilliantly written/acted characters. It should haul a lot of writing and acting awards again by the end of this TV season.

^ Yeah, he makes the most sense for a front CEO. Much more amenable to being controlled than Shiv. Plus he has experience handling both Brightstar and ATN.

I thought it was an incredible ending. I was expecting someone else in the board to break down and flip, but not a sibling.

The "holding hands" scene in the car was brilliant.

‘Succession’ Ends on a Ratings High With 2.9 Million Finale Viewers

There was no real winner at the end of “Succession”. But HBO might be able to claim that title for itself.

2.9 million people tuned into “Succession” on Sunday night, when HBO and Max debuted the series finale after four seasons. This marks the show’s largest audience ever, a 5% improvement from its previous record of 2.75 million viewers set by Episode 6 of Season 4, which aired on April 30.

Episode 10’s new series high is an unsurprising cap on what has been the most watched season of “Succession,” which is now averaging 8.7 million viewers per episode when accounting for delayed viewing. (Season 3 averaged 7.2 million viewers.)

An astounding 27 Emmy nominations for Succession's farewell season gives it the record for any TV series.

But since there is a writers' strike, we might not see the awards handed out until later this year.
