Succession!  :bravo:
Pristine writing, tragic and hilarious. And one of the best casts I've ever seen.

I'm so many people.

I would expect no less from one of the creators of Peep Show.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

Yes, Succession is amazing, it seemed a little odd or at least I didn't know exactly what the show wanted to be, then it took off and I'm glad I stuck with it because season 2 has started real strong, even better than one imo.

Jeremy Strong is so good, you can see that Kendall is so uncomfortable in his own skin and Matthew Macfadyen's character is like the complete opposite of Mr. Darcy, he wants to have it all but underneath is a cowardly bully.

Show of hands:  Who's up-to-date with the first 8 (!) of the 16 (!!) hours of COUNTRY MUSIC, A FILM BY KEN BURNS?

 :waving:

Never followed country music to any extent, but I usually learn (more than I need to?) from these epics.  Glad for the break till Sunday to clear the ol' synapses.

As far as I know there's no thread for The Affair, the series just ended (lasted five seasons) but I'm still catching up on the last one.

Anyway, the whole series is really good and if you like good drama this is it, so in the last season Anna Paquin got a part and she is just incredible, all around there's good acting from all the cast but somehow I forgot how good Anna is and I just wanted to gush about her with you guys.
