Luigi Berlusconi è Roman Roy: ultimogenito, bisessuale (still in the closet), noto playboy ma rincorrono rumors su una storia con il suo personal trainer. Luigi, facci sapere se anche tu hai una cotta per una 60enne, grazie.

Barbara Berlusconi è Shiv Roy: per molto tempo si è disinteressata dell'azienda di famiglia, ritagliandosi un suo spazio ma alla fine il richiamo del sangue è stato troppo forte. Il primo tentativo negli affari di famiglia (il Milan) non è andato bene
#succession ImageImage
Piersilvio Berlusconi è Kendall Roy: gli è stato promesso l'impero dall'età di 7 anni ma poi arriva sempre secondo. La mattina appena sveglio fa palestra e ascolta musica rap per motivarsi. Ha grandi idee rivoluzionarie ma poi alla fine manda in onda Barbarella.

Quienes ya vieron el final de #Succession entenderán este hilo, pero quienes todavía no lo han visto, les recomiendo que mejor dejen de leerlo, que van spoilers.

Encontré coincidencias entre la serie y la sucesión caquista.

Para quién no ha visto #Succession, ni sabe de qué trata; es sobre una familia disfuncional, dueña de un imperio de medios, y los enredos que surgen para saber quién será el sucesor, así como sucede en México con #CACAligula y sus achichincles que andan ansiosos por la sucesión. Image
Logan Roy, el mercader de la desinformación, es un magnate narcisista, egocéntrico y desalmado que acumula todo el poder. Es dueño de un robusto negocio; tal como #FentAMLO narcopresidente de México, un anciano culero que lucra con el fentanilo y vende falsas esperanzas. ImageImage

If you’re as sick of AAA development practices and staff treatment as you say you are, then you really ought to be looking a lot deeper into the world of indie development. And wouldn’t you know it, along with nine from earlier today, #sonsatos #Succession #SuccessionFinale… we’ve another 10 unknown or under-known indie games that are well-deserving of your attention.

Supporting independent development is about as close as to being Jesus as most humans can ever be, and this is an excellent opportunity. Stick anything… that stands out to you on your wishlist, buy it when it’s out, then tell your friends. These games are only obscure if you let them be. OK, listen, secret time: if you want me to definitely write about your game, feature octopuses.

Jesse Armstrong and co. have perfected giving audiences a sense of false hope with #Succession that I don’t think we’ll see again. You give us what’s possibly the last moments of the siblings in good terms, only to tear them apart and leave them in the mud. What a series finale!
Roman might be the only one out of the core three who is actually free from trying to please their father. Kendall was right about something though, he didn’t want to be IT, and now he’s back to where his journey started; being a playboy billionaire who can do whatever he wants. Image
Shiv’s final decision is so interesting. She secured her children’s future but she’s doomed to see Tom live the life she wanted. She’s repeating her mom’s unhappy life married to a CEO, unsure if she wanted to have children to begin with, and be reduced to eye candy for Matsson. Image

It begins with the words.
Nothing happens without them. Sometimes, the writing achieves transcendence, but, in every case, it’s seminal. I got to a give a brilliant speech recently, which not only explicated my and my brother’s characters, it illuminated an entire narrative. 1/3
This is what great writers do. And they need to be compensated in accordance with their contribution. At the very least, they need to be able to provide for themselves and their families. 2/3
In this era of corporate greed and union busting, management seems to hold all the cards. Except for the most important ones: Unity; Solidarity; Fraternity. All of us win when the writers win. And we will win. Union! Strike! #wgastrike #UnionStrong #Succession @jessearmstrong1

There are two kinds of people in this world, those who are fascinated with Shiv's chemistry with Matsson and those who are fascinated by Shiv's chemistry with Tom Wambsgans #succession
I am on the Matsson side, it is chaotic and interesting whereas her deal with Tom seems very Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and contrived
Perhaps an unpopular opinion but I think both men are playing Shiv and she's largely unaware of how they know exactly what to tell her to flatter her ego. Matsson tells her she reminds him of her dad, and Shiv allies with him right away.

The news that #Succession would end with Season 4 caught many fans off guard — and some of the cast as well. Sarah Snook said that she was not officially informed until the final table read in January: “I was very upset.”
“I felt a huge sense of loss, disappointment and sadness. It would have been nice to know at the beginning of the season, but I also understand not being told until the end because there was still a potential that maybe this wasn’t going to be the end.”
“Emotionally, all of us weren’t necessarily ready to be done with the show because we love each other so much,” she added. “But everything has to come to an end, and it’s smart not to let something become a parody of itself.”

Haha, the other day I was taking a nap while @k_rupal was watching TV (I can sleep through anything) and the #Succession theme came on and I apparently rose groggily reaching for my phone. And she had to be like, not your phone. The actual music. Go to bed. 🤣🤣
This is indeed a great explanation by the composer. Contains Succession spoilers. But great to hear. And explains why the theme is a perfect alarm ring tone cos it's discordant and alarming by design. Brain just can't ignore it, even asleep.

Who would've thought that deliberately throwing in an off jarring note frequently would work so well in creating this sense of unease and foreboding that runs through the show. It's a satire that's a bit too real. Perfect score!

Ivanka Trump: “It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying.”

“Any legal jargon you hear about seditious conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy to defraud the United States — all boils down to this: January 6th was the culmination of an attempted coup.”
