"Succession is not an easy show to watch, particularly if you work in the media. It's scathing, dark, and very close to the bone, and you will feel every perfectly crafted moment like a shot to the heart (I'm still not over the episode where Roman walks into the trendy offices of a new media company and exclaims. 'Oh, look at all the fake journalists pretending to work'). But still, it's tremendously entertaining, and it does the near-impossible almost every episode by making you feel something for a bunch of characters who are truly The Worst. The Roy family are not 'flawed heroes' — they're assh*les, every single one of them (even you, Greg). But somehow, you find yourself feeling sorry for them in their darkest moments. I also have to give a particular shout-out to Matthew MacFadyen, who is relishing the role of jumped-up bully Tom so much, I've almost grown to care about him. Give that man an Emmy."
