Succession

Perhaps part of the reason Succession has become such a joy to watch is because another prominent American family—one we can’t avoid paying attention to—is so much more loathsome. But while the Roys are by-and-large despicable, they're not dummies, and they're not anti-heroes. They're gladiators on the floor of the arena—and watching the one percent of the one percent hack themselves to bits is a refreshing reversal of what it's actually like to live in America right now.
