wasnt a lot of buzz around hbo's succession early on but it has picked up steam as its gone along. the finale just aired yesterday. think i still have three on my plate. theres much palace intrigue regarding the business that somewhat mirrors the murdoch empire but its more a family drama albeit one about the super rich replete with an overbearing patriarch and a bunch of damaged kids trailing in his wake.
and hbo doubled down on wealthy fucked up family dynamics as the lead in is sharp objects with amy adams as the deeply damaged child and patricia clarkson as the impossibly passive aggressive matriarch and leading citizen of a small town in southern missouri.
both are worth watching though i wouldnt recommend watching them in succession.
