How’s the family? What are they talking about? Is Succession as good as media people say it is (I’m leaning towards “yes”)? Fire away.
Succession is as good as media people say it is (even if Season 3 was a slight step down).
Klay Travis prefers YellowStone because it is a show about "Real Americans" and not WOKE coastal ELITES like Succession!!!
One of my favorite details of Succession, is how Logan just grunts half the time when people talk to him. Its so so great, because you don't know for certain if he's being tactically non-committal, has no mental energy for things he doesn't give a shit about, or he's just old and deaf and didn't hear clearly.
I think the past season was remarkable given the difficulty in production they must have faced.
Succession is great. It doesn’t totally follow a single character so it feels different from most shows that critics tend to love.
Big multi-generational debate about how corrupt our major institutions have become - with the older folks saying “it’s always been this way (corrupt)” and the younger folks saying “but not to this extent”…
It’s 100% as good as media people say it is. Even so I think it treads water quite a bit. Here’s a decent YouTube video that captures the ridiculousness and the repetitiveness.
Succession is the last show since Game of Thrones that a lot of people I know actually watch in real time. The last water cooler show for educated ppl. Funny thing is 5x people are probably watching young Sheldon.
First 2 seasons of succession were amazing and the last few episodes of third season were great
Is The Witcher any good? I'd lean towards no, for reasons similar to those discussed here: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/the-real-reason-fans-hate-the-last-season-of-game-of-thrones/
The books are more interesting.
I'm trying to figure out what to read next.
We’re testing vaccine and booster efficacy by vacationing in NYC for a week. We’ll be as careful as you can be while still doing the tourist thing, but it’ll be interesting to see whether despite being reasonably cautious that we still get it.
Are you happy with substack in general?
