Succession, Season 1

Succession, Season 1 Summary

Power, politics, money...it's all in the family in Season 1 of this provocative, bitingly funny drama series about a highly dysfunctional dynasty. When aging, uber-wealthy patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox), CEO of one of the world's largest media and entertainment conglomerates, decides to retire, each of his four grown children follows a personal agenda that doesn't always sync with those of their siblings--or of their father. After Logan changes his mind about stepping down, he endures the often-childish bickering of his heirs while others in their orbit position themselves for a post-Logan world that seems imminent, though not predestined. Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Alan Ruck co-star as Logan's children; also with Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Braun and Matthew Macfadyen. Succession, Season 1 Wiki

Succession, Season 1 Synopsis

On his 80th birthday, media magnate Logan Roy, whose imminent retirement was thought to be a given, shocks his family by announcing he's staying on indefinitely as CEO of Waystar/Royco. The news shatters his son Kendall, the heir apparent who's in the midst of negotiating the purchase of a digital-media venture founded by a slick operator named Lawrence.
Logan's incapacitation sets off a heated succession debate among his children, as the Board rushes to inform the media about leadership contingencies before the stock market opens. Greg is tasked to retrieve some important items from the Roy apartment. Kendall makes an impassioned final plea to keep Waystar/Royco in the family, and receives some sobering news.
With Waystar's stock plunging to dangerous lows, Kendall is confronted with a major crisis involving a secret bank debt. Upset with Marcia for pulling rank in the Roy apartment, Shiv decides to enlist an old paramour to conduct a background check on Logan's third wife. Kendall and Roman attend their first big meeting in their new roles, as do Tom and Greg.
With the company’s annual foundation gala fundraiser approaching, and his dad out of the picture, Kendall polishes up his speech while enlisting an on-air personality from the Waystar’s ATV Networks to accompany him. Shiv tries to minimize damage from a sordid photo that threatens a client's political future. Tom inherits a “virus” from his predecessor.
After hearing Logan’s plan to expand in to local TV, Kendall begins to plot a vote of no confidence against his father. Greg drives his ornery grandfather Ewan from Canada to New York for a Thanksgiving reunion with Logan. Tom grows increasingly concerned about the terms of his prenuptial agreement with Shiv, and recruits Greg for a clandestine task.
With the vote of no confidence against Logan approaching, Roman attempts to sway a neutral board member, while Kendall frantically shores up his “yea” votes. Logan arrives in Washington to meet with the president, but worries he's been snubbed after a last-minute cancellation. After successfully thwarting a potential scandal, Tom introduces Greg to fine dining.
In an effort to fix his public image, Logan agrees to a family therapy session at Connor’s New Mexico ranch that Logan intends to double as a publicity stunt. While lying low, Kendall spends some time with the locals and finds his sobriety tested. Shiv considers putting herself in a precarious situation when Nate pushes her to join a potential presidential candidate’s team.
Tom has a bachelor’s party to remember. Kendall eyes a new business opportunity with a pair of idealistic entrepreneurs. Roman looks to land a deal for local TV stations with his father’s longtime nemesis. Logan tasks Greg to act as Kendall’s babysitter during Tom’s party. Shiv and Gil get ambushed during a TV interview on a Waystar network.
The Roys assemble at an English castle to prepare for Shiv and Tom’s wedding. The children reunite with their mother Caroline, who is every bit as acerbic as Logan. As guests mingle and clash, Kendall learns from Stewy and Sandy that their plot for a hostile takeover of Waystar has been fast-tracked in order to catch Logan off guard.
Amidst the revelry of Tom and Shiv's wedding, Logan and his team find themselves in defense mode as word of the Waystar takeover bid spreads. Kendall finds an escape outlet as the situation becomes supercharged, while Tom parlays his new wife's candor into the removal of an unwanted guest. Season One Finale.

Series Premiere. On his 80th birthday, media magnate Logan Roy, whose imminent retirement was thought to be a given, shocks his family by announcing he's staying on indefinitely as CEO of Waystar/Royco. The news shatters his son Kendall, the heir apparent who's in the midst of negotiating the purchase of a digital-media venture founded by a slick operator named Lawrence. After an impromptu softball game, tempers flare as Logan's other children--Roman, Shiv and Connor--raise objections over Logan's intentions, including his desire to change the way his eventual successor will be chosen.
Logan's incapacitation sets off a heated succession debate among his children, as the Board rushes to inform the media about leadership contingencies before the stock market opens. Greg is tasked to retrieve some important items from the Roy apartment. Kendall makes an impassioned final plea to keep Waystar/Royco in the family, and receives some sobering news from longtime general counsel Gerri Kellman that dampens a moment of vindication.

Upset with Marcia for pulling rank in the Roy apartment, Shiv decides to enlist an old paramour to conduct a background check on Logan's third wife.

- Seems unrealistic3 star

I watched three episodes and thought it was good but also a tad unrealistic. The show is about the spoiled children of a tycoon, but can get overblown. The characters become like stereotypes, doing outlandish things all the time. It can detract from the story and make it’s characters unlikable. Reminded me of Entourage, but in business suits.

- Brilliant Dark Comedy5 star

Cast is amazing. Dialogue is brilliant. Admittedly, it took a few episodes to become additive. The characters are hard to feel sympathy for initially, but they are fascinating. If you like Veep, you’ll love this.

- RS5 star

Amazing show Great cast hope it returns?

- Pompous and just plain bad...1 star

The title pretty much lays it out there for ya. This coming from a guy who’s liked just about every series HBO has put out. I just couldn’t watch this one though. I tried my best to find something to like about it and just couldn’t do it.

- Terrible1 star

Slow, too agressively hip with no background and very unlikable characters. As a viewer it's almost impossible to route for anyone nor do I care about the plot. I wasted my money. I'd like to get it back.

- Enjoyable but ....3 star

There was quite a bit of swearing and a lot of complicated unnecessary dialogue. The writer should rethink this for the next season, it tried to make the script look clever but infact it was mostly confusing ramble.

- Good show, good characters5 star

Like this show, worried it will be cancelled.

- Excellent new show5 star

Highly recommended

- Best new show5 star

Wow season 1 is hilarious produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay lots of cursing and Wall Street esque banter. More backstabbing and mischief than Jersey shore and wrapped in a wealthy, classier gift wrap. Buy in or get HBO NOW app it’s incredible.

left888 - Canadians did fight in Vietnam5 star

To the pariahdude that thinks Canada didn’t fight in the Vietnam war, think again. There were several hundred of our Canadian boys and girls that fought in Vietnam. Learn your history dude!

Wizard1732003 - WoW!!5 star

This show’s plot lines all have energy. Funny, realistic and, ‘when’s the next season out’?

Pariahdude: - Excellent5 star

Interesting characters, well -written. Little false note though: in episode 'I went to the market,' the james cromwell character Euwing mentions that Canadians fought communism in Vietnam. They didn't. This is why draft dodgers hid in Canada ,where to this day at least one hundred american draft dodgers started families in Canada ,where they chose to remain.
