Succession: Season 3

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I don’t have anything too insightful to add that add’s to my review of season 2, other than that it’s more of the same, which is a very high bar to keep meeting given how good the writing, cast and plot is.

Adding Luka as a key character was a great decision since it really brought the show to the 21st century. THere was a small suspense of disbelief that millennials keep pushing forward traditional media, but this made it feel real.

Seeing Greg really come out of his shell is nice comic relief, but there’s isn’t mich to add.

Ken’s polarized character is something I can really relate to. Oscillating between confidence, strength, blind loyalty, irrational fear, self-doubt, suicidal thoughts, and then back to the strength of being in charge and changing the world hits home.

The character I feel the most compassion for is Tom. He’s an insider who is on the outside. He is there to serve but no one cares. He tries to be the best husband he can for Shiv, but she just keeps pushing him away.

A fun fact I learn about Roman, is that he’s played by the actor whose older brother is the main character from Home Alone! On the off-chance he ever reads this, he’ll probably hate hearing it, but I intentionally avoided googling the names I couldn’t remember just to show how influential that movie was on society and my personal upbringing. The fact that I’m excited about this fun fact speaks for itself.
