Fri Oct 18 20:49:48 +0000 2019

Soooo. I think I may need a trustworthy fan to explain to me the thing about Succession. Because we watched the first episode and absolutely hated everybody, and not in an enjoyable way.

Fri Oct 18 22:23:34 +0000 2019

Replying to @amandafrench

Yeah, I think there’s a relationship here. We’re a couple of episodes into season 1 of Fleabag and are finding it a little hard going. But nowhere near as hard as Succession.

Fri Oct 18 22:28:12 +0000 2019

I mean, the pleasure of Succession could well be in imagining them all up against the wall when the revolution comes, who’s to say.

For me it falls into that Seinfeld space of shows about horrible people for whom I feel zero sympathy or interest. Granted, that’s only after one episode. But I just don’t see the appeal?
