Succession: The Complete Series... Reviewed!

I would like to thank, Warner Bros for sending this product. My opinions are my own.

Story: "Succession" is a masterclass in television drama. The show follows the lives of the Roy family, a wealthy and powerful media dynasty, as they navigate the ups and downs of their empire and personal relationships. 

From the very first episode, the show captures your attention with its quick-witted dialogue, complex characters, and expertly crafted plot. Each episode is filled with twists and turns, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats as the family dynamic changes and alliances are tested.

The themes of power, family, and loyalty are explored in great depth throughout the series, as we watch the members of the Roy family struggle to maintain their status and influence. The tone of the show is darkly comedic, highlighting the absurdities and hypocrisies of the ultra-wealthy, yet it never fails to leave a lingering sense of unease.

The acting is superb across the board, with standout performances from Brian Cox as patriarch Logan Roy, Jeremy Strong as his troubled son Kendall, and Sarah Snook as the ambitious and cunning Siobhan. The ensemble cast is truly exceptional, with each actor bringing depth and nuance to their respective roles.

While "Succession" may not be for everyone, those who appreciate intelligent and thought-provoking drama will find themselves drawn into this world and invested in the Roy family's journey. The show demands your attention and rewards it with stunning performances, complex characters, and a gripping storyline. Simply put, "Succession" is some of the best television out there today.

Although I enjoyed watching the drama, I realized that I wanted to consume positive and uplifting content afterward to balance things out.

Visuals: The direction and cinematography are equally impressive, with a keen eye for detail and framing that elevates the show's stunning production design. I have one critique, there should have been a Blu-ray option!

Although "Succession" effectively portrays the challenges of the industry, it seems that someone overlooked the fact that HD resolution should be the targeted quality for the release.

Audio: The score is haunting and moody, perfectly capturing the show's brooding atmosphere.
