At the core, it's essentially the concept of Veep (a political satire) applied to the business world rather than politics, but darker and more warped. It's a black comedy slash satire pretending to be a drama.

(i) A comedy is a dramatic exaggeration of real life situations for humorous purpose. It's satirical in tone.

(ii) A drama is a serious representations that portray realistic characters to mirror real life situations.

Between the two definitions, I would say Succession has more in common with (i) than it does (ii), thus without further ado, I would surmise that Succession is a black comedy drama. Its appeal lies in its satirical tone.

It is more drama than comedy given the realistic and tragic lives that wealthy families with an abusive patriarch, live.

Sure, are there comedic parts? Yeah but it is very realistic and serious.


Realistic recurring themes
-Romans depraved sex life and assholery resulting from abuse at an early age.

-Roy's controlling and abusive nature that has damaged his wives and children. It has also seeded into his business where there were cover ups of sexual harassment by uncle Mo the Mo-lester.

-Kendall's drug addiction as a result of his fathers controlling nature.

C'mon! Even when it gets "serious", Succession is hilarious.

I can't decide if you're playing the devils advocate or you genuinely put stock in what you submitted here. It doesn't make much difference anyway, because you're clearly off-base.

The points you put forward are part and parcel of the satirical content of the Succession. One of Succession’s strengths is its total commitment to showing how dreadful and insecure the Roys are. In a serious representation, The Roys would have redeeming qualities vying for supremacy with their despicable qualities. There are no redeeming qualities in Succession, but entitled & morally decadent dysfunctional family grasping for opportunities to get one over on each other.

If you still have doubts, surely the camera used in shooting the show would persuade you? It's a shaky, handheld over-the-shoulder view of a character's face notably utilized in comedies like Veep, The Thick of It, The Office, and Park & Rec. It usually involves zooming in and out on character's expressions as they abuse each other, and plot to do over their rivals.

Still not convinced? What about the show's creator and writer, Jesse Armstrong, known for co-penning satire heavyweights like Veep, The Thick of It, Peep show, and by and large known to write satires for dramatic presentations? Jesse Armstrong's forte is satire, it's what he excels at. His style is distinct, and Succession is overflowing with his brilliance.

Vikings season 6 part two has to be one of the most rushed series finally ever.

I wonder why they had to finish the series in a rush, looking at the wonderful casts in the season finally and the many potential they have, they really forked up.
Some seasons back, we all had one thought which was "they should have ended the series in season five when ivar was defeated"
But since they had to go on with the season 6 part one which made no sense to me. The part two of the season 6 made so much sense that we all thought, why the rush?
Why kill off ivar?
Why kill off the wife of bjorn?
Why kill off the new king of kattegat?
It just doesn't make sense, It had so much potential for season 7 looking at the fact that they brought back floki.

The new queen of kattegat which is a witch.
Vikset being a priest, the new land the vikings found and it's occupant, made everything more juicy for season 7 which was supposed to be the season finally and oh!!!! What about the son of ivar?

The creators forked up big time and now i know and understand why HBO is above of them.
Give HBO this season 6 part two of Vikings and watch them turn season 7 into a game of thrones contender.

The casts and the story had so much potentials for an Emmy.
Well we will have to compensate ourselves with the last kingdom series.

Well, Netflix has a sequel Spin off Vikings Series prepared already. Could premiere this year. grin
Vikings: Valhalla grin grin grin

In the sequel, the series is set a hundred years after the events of Valhalla. Will continue on the Vikings settlements in Wessex/Northumbria/England. Also focuses on the Descendants of Ragnar, and features Big historical characters such as Erik the Red, William The Conqueror and more.....And most likely to feature Ubbe's exploits in North America.

Well, HBO most definitely destroyed GOT with its abysmal finale. That's why Game Of Thrones can't be the Best TV Show of All Time.
