Succession plays out, in technicolour, the destructive power and devastating allure of money. It’s family in-fighting gone nuclear and the odds couldn’t be higher – global media dynamics and discourse are at risk.
The ability of the characters to act for their own selfish interests and to do-over their own blood relations never fails to shock and surprise.
Add to that writing and acting that is second-to-none. Scripts are jam-packed and delivered quickfire. You can’t help but reach for the remote and play back some of the to-and-fro, even if you heard it all the first time. Every single character is additive, there is no weak link, and you’ll struggle to choose a favourite.
Bring on Season Three!
