Succession - Season One

Sharon and I finished watching season one of Succession. Season one premiered on June 3, 2018 on HBO.

The series centers on the Roy family, the dysfunctional owners of Waystar Royco, a global media and hospitality empire.  The family is fighting for control of the company amidst uncertainty about the health of the family's patriarch, Logan Roy (Brian Cox).

The show has a large ensemble cast.  Kieran Culkin as Roman, Sarah Snook as Siobhan, and Jeremy Strong as Kendall are Logan's children employed by the company.  Other main characters include: Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans; Siobhan's husband and Waystar executive; Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, Logan's grandnephew also employed by the company; Alan Ruck as Connor, Logan's eldest child, and; Hiam Abbass as Marcia Roy, Logan's wife.

I am lukewarm on the show.  Sharon likes it more than I do.  I rate it a "B-."
