Canceled before the season finale. Let’s bet.June 4, 2018 at 7:16 am #1202558554
Watched this last night. Didn’t make it all the way to the end. Just very disappointing. Concept is interesting but execution is mixed. Culkin is awful. Rest of the cast is good though. Won;t watch the rest of this. My grade: C.June 10, 2018 at 12:23 am #1202561994

I thought I’d hate this because of the amount of straight white men, but it was actually entertaining. I have some issues with the lack of female characters and the constant zooming into the actors was annoying, but I’ll follow this for Sarah Snook and Kendall Roy. I love watching white and rich people have problems!Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 11, 2018 at 10:06 am #1202562991

Good. It has potential to become its own thing and less derivative over time. A good commentary on the American system that created President Trump.June 17, 2018 at 12:54 pm #1202567537

Really liked all the angling by the children to take over Logan’s throne. Like what’s so bad about Kendall lol? Incredibly shitty individuals, but I’m compelled to continue on in exploring their adventures. The cousin is an absolutely dreadful actor though, and some of these directorial cues annoy me with scenes lingering on for far longer than they should. J. Smith-Cameron here gives me my life tho, so I’ll make allowances for some of the rest of this (and whatever the hell Matthew MacFayden is attempting through this performance and “accent” … sad).June 18, 2018 at 6:31 am #1202567882
And now I see why Kendall might not had been the best choice for CEO lol. I kinda thought that the private equity bailout from the coked-out friend was a bit too convenient, but I didn’t suspect he would be in kahoots with Waystar’s biggest competitor. Twist! Of course that awful cousin would be the one to discover the betrayal. Interesting to see the children get more screentime with Cox mostly sidelined. Really into the dynamics between Shiv and Marcia. Sarah Snook is great and reminds me so much of Lauren Ambrose (yay!). Hiam Abbass has this mysterious presence that’s both distancing and intriguing. Roman’s just a gross fucker, and you can tell that Kieran Culkin is having a ball playing him. I don’t get the disconnected acting choices that Matthew MacFayden makes. I’m also not sure about Jeremy Strong as lead here. Kendall seems like many things all at once, but all I’m getting right now is tentative and douchey. Get in the game and prove your father wrong, man! Can’t wait for next episode!June 24, 2018 at 2:05 am #1202572101
