News & Interviews for Succession: Season 1
Oh, it's delicious, this dark soap opera-cum-socio-political satire. Funny, too, and occasionally shocking in its portrayal of the cruelty - both casual and calculated - of the unfathomably rich.
Not only the best season of television of 2018, but one of the best debut seasons of television I've seen, up there with the first seasons of Deadwood, Spiral and The Wire ... they may not be good human beings, but they're ludicrously good characters.
Succession is populated by a cesspool of vultures and terrible people you'd never personally want to know. But they sure are fun to watch.
All eyes are on Strong's haunted Kendall Roy, who looks at any moment as if he's going to go full Michael Corleone.
As a fan of those shows - and virtually everything else Armstrong has worked on - I wanted to love this one too. But I couldn't, not quite.
Jesse Armstrong's speciality is writing stingers and elaborately vile speeches for his characters to deliver. This is simply showboating - not dialogue that can be convincingly responded to by the other characters. And they all speak this way.
