That's a classic scene Giles

Allie and I are watching "Succession" on HBO while our month subscription carries on (we signed up to watch White Lotus).

It's a pretty special show and I give them the most props for keeping the gratuitous nudity out of the show while still having a ton of sexual focused plot line. A really smart approach.

One of my favorite dark comedies of ever @jordanscollected  The characters are just so perfectly irredeemable.
Think it, be it.

@SKT it starts a bit slow as they build characters, but it picks up fast and furious. they do a great job without a ton of violence, killing, nudity, etc. while still being gripping edgy and engaging.

@SKT Succession is a surefire winner.  The characters are unlikeable but you can't help but root for a couple of them.

Personally, being a horror addict if sorts, I've been watching "slasher" on shudder (first few seasons were in Netflix) because it's a gruesome whodunnit that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Ha. I wrote my bachelor dissertation on the book that series is based on about 26 years ago. Had no idea it had been adapted for tv.

Absolutely classic.....
I love that episode. I was living in south Jersey when it first aired and a couple of my roommates were from some small town in the Pine Barrens. They claimed the show didn't make it weird enough.

Six eps in - it's fantastic... Good, dark vibes... Good, low budget vibes as well  :D But I like that...

+1 more for what everyone here is saying about Succession, I have been waiting with baited breath for S3.

@Giles  I think you may have pushed me over the edge on starting a full rewatch of the Sopranos...I recently wrapped Breaking Bad viewing 2 and I think for the purpose of defining my all time favorite I need to give the Tony and his crew the same courtesy.

It's that or learn a new language, which can obviously wait another month or two :D :D :D

Oh and while I am here, sweet baby Jebus is season duex of Ted Lasso just about as good as comedy gets or what!!??

I'm loving the new season of What We Do In The Shadows. The most recent episode had me cracking up!
