It’s always refreshing to see excellent television shows wrap up there series before the show gets stale. “Succession” has been a big hit for HBO, but we saw last year that the cycle of conflict started to settle into a somewhat predictable pattern. Of course the show still packs quite a punch, and consistently delivers plot twists to keep viewers on their toes, but how many storylines can you create around family strife?
A final season also helps to generate buzz, and the first episode generated great rating according to HBO:
The season four debut of SUCCESSION garnered 2.3 million viewers across HBO Max and linear telecasts, marking a series high. Total viewing for Sunday night was up 62% compared to last season’s premiere (1.4M) and 33% compared to last season’s finale (1.7M), with season 3 episodes going on to average 7.2 million viewers per episode across platforms. Viewership figures are based on Nielsen and first party data.
The battle between Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his three of his children is heating up as Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) team up to do their own thing in the media business. Meanwhile, first-born Connor (Alan Ruck) continues to be a clown with his pathetic presidential campaign. The first episode was packed with drama as the kids find themselves in a bidding war with Logan.
This fourth and final season should end up being memorable, as opposed to a show like Showtime’s “Billions” which was equally brilliant in the early seasons but then hung around way to long, becoming a caricature of itself in recent seasons.
2017 was a great year for TV series. For the first time in many years, Game of Thrones was not nominated for any Emmy awards, meaning that other productions also had the chance to shine. And there were many great shows to choose from, too, in all areas, from comedies to action, suspense, science fiction, and drama series. And there were many shows that haven’t gotten any Emmy nominations this year, which also offer a unique and meaningful experience to their viewers. Not to mention that there are still shows that haven’t premiered yet. Waiting for some of those can be a real burden – instead of counting the days or hours to their premiere, why not kill time with some games, like the ones at the All Jackpots? After you claim a new player welcome bonus when you join All Jackpots you can access its vast collection of games that will help you kill time until your favorite show returns to the screen – or maybe it puts some cash in your pocket, too.
Yes, we’re happy! Even straight guys can love this show – who doesn’t like lovely lesbians?
Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moenig and Leisha Hailey are all apparently attached to this new version of the show that last aired in 2009. It will be interesting to see which other stars are brought back, and which new characters will be introduced.
The level of drama on “The L Word” was a bit over-the-top by the last season, so we’ll see how the stories develop.
“Homeland” has won the award for Best Drama Series two years in a row, while Claire Danes and Damian Lewis won for best actress and best actor. It’s a pretty incredible show, even with the elevated craziness of Season 2. And while I don’t think it’s quite as good as “Breaking Bad” it’s hard to argue with these choices.
Hey, everybody, Gale’s okay! Gee, I guess Jesse’s bullet missed him after all, so…
Oh. Never mind. It’s a flashback. But, hey, at least now we know how the superlab first came into being. And we also know the sad irony that Gale is directly responsible for Gus bringing Walt into the business in the first place. So obsessive was he with his concern about the quality of the meth he was making – more concerned, even, than Gus himself – that he simply couldn’t comprehend that Gus wouldn’t want to work with someone like that, even risking the possibility of talking himself out of a job by saying of Walt, “If he’s not (a professional), I don’t know what that makes me.”
Well, as it turns out, Gale, what is makes you is dead. But, then, I think we all pretty much knew that when Season 3 faded to black. Some of us just didn’t want to admit it.
