Anyway, that's the last time I say anything positive about Acey. The characters in Succession have no positive ethical traits certainly, but they're all engaging, variously charming, distinct and formed. The closest you get to a 'good' character in, say, Breaking Bad is Hank and he's obnoxious and boorish.

I guess it's a bit easy to make everyone a variation on Maggie Smith in Downton (there's an episode at the end of season one that is just Downton in the digital era) but ultimately it's a show about the Murdochs so it's not like 'they're all shits' is so far from reality.

Also, needs to be said there's several really strong performances. Kieran Culkin and Cox do a great job with roles that are easy to act up to, but McFadyen is really flexible performer. Funny, snivelling, weaselly, threatening and all in the same scene.
