Quote from: Shameless Custard on October 20, 2021, 01:07:25 PMAs much as I love Shiv's character, she clearly still isn't ready for the top job. Her childish reaction to her mate turning down her job offer shows that very clearly.

Quote from: AllisonSays on October 19, 2021, 04:30:32 PMI feel like Roman and Kendall are opposites, kind of. Roman doesn't care if people think he's clever and he doesn't present himself with a business-school sheen, he's crass and adolescent, but he comprehends the fundamental dynamics of corporate maneuvering pretty clearly - it's all about power, who has it, and who can get it. Kendall tries very hard to come across as lucid, sensitive, thoughtful, contemporary - as in that cringey Bojack line - but his actual grasp of the realpolitik strategy, the power game, is always vague, which is why he always seems to fuck it up. They're both incomplete copies of their da, I guess, but I think Roman's actually slightly closer to him in his willingness to get down to the basics of the situation (something that consistently eludes Kendall, who's obsessed with fripperies and externalities like his Twitter feed).
Quote from: Inspector Norse on October 19, 2021, 06:49:59 PMI kind of think Logan offered it to Shiv last season not as a serious future plan but to see how she reacted; and she reacted impatiently and egotistically, and kept showing poor judgment. It's interesting that as mentioned with Kendall and Roman above, it's the qualities (or flaws) that have made Logan so successful that, in different combinations, make his offspring all unsuited for the top job. Roman is one who - perhaps because of Geri's influence, and it's hard not to imagine that that subplot is going to end quite delightfully horribly - seems to be developing and getting the hang of what it takes, and he sometimes shows the ruthlessness and killer instinct that Logan has previously looked for in Kendall. But it's Kendall who has the head for details and figures and contacts.Ultimately the problem is that if the three kids (let's ignore the utterly useless Connor at this point) could work together, they might do a good job, but their total dysfunction prevents it. The moments when they let their guards down and show genuine affection are some of the show's strongest, I often think, but one of its other strengths is showing just how completely fucked up this lifestyle makes people.
Quote from: thugler on October 19, 2021, 03:46:04 PMI was slightly aghast at the idea Roman was even in the running for CEO. Gerri or Shiv were the obvious choice

Quote from: Inspector Norse on October 19, 2021, 07:06:19 AMAt least with one a week you have time for some proper media monitoring the day after to check reviews and opinion. The Internet is big, obviously, and you couldn't read it all.
Quote from: Shameless Custard on October 20, 2021, 01:07:25 PMTalking of Tom, how very awkward his goodbye with his wife was. Blowing a half arsed kiss, her half arsed catching it. Oh dear. I hope those crazy kids patch it up
Quote from: Proactive on October 20, 2021, 06:42:29 PMJust wanted to give this underrated post a thumbs up.
QuoteEverything seems amped up in a slightly performative way. Kendall and Logan trading barbs pulled from fairy tales through Kendall's assistant Jess
Quote from: Blue Jam on October 20, 2021, 08:39:50 PMAs for reviews and opinion- good to take the cultural temperature innit? ;) The AV Club were a bit underwhelmed by episode 1, but I guess a B grade is fair enough for the calm before the storm:https://www.avclub.com/succession-s-third-season-premieres-with-a-smidge-too-m-1847882111
Quote from: Blue Jam on October 20, 2021, 08:39:50 PMMe too! As someone who got into Breaking Bad, The Sopranos etc long after they first aired it's nice to be able to watch a show and get caught up in the hype, it's probably the closest thing we have to watercooler moments these days. I love doing this with Succession and Better Call Saul
