Crazy indeed. Even worse was how some were already dismissive of it from the synopsis alone, or the critics who were meh on it based on the early episodes but changed their tune by midseason. For me personally, I can't remember the last time I saw a series debut with such consistently great episodes.

Was my favorite show of the year, until that last part of the finale. Not even watching Season 2.

Returns tonight, and apparently this season is masterful. Currently has 89 on metacritic.

lol I binged like 5 episodes yesterday, 3 to go

I'm really loving this show. The first couple of episodes really lay the groundwork for all the intrigue and intricacies of the family vying for the company. So far, it really gets better and better. Culkin is amazing

Finished season one yesterday. Overall quite entertaining. It takes a while for the character development to truly accelerate, especially because they're trying to juggle so many characters. Which is why I think the episodes in which they're more confined to one space tend to work best.

I just really like this sort of intrigue lol

The characters are wonderfully self centred, self destructive, counter intuitive and cunning. Culkin is the MVP, Cox also delivers.

it close to a more subtly funny Veep or Thick of It but for corporate america. it's terrific, with just enough wealth porn to appease dodd ;)
