Perfectly wicked and contains a likely iconic TV moment...
26 August 2019 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

That obviously being the game of "Boar on the Floor" that Logan forces three of his family members/associates to play during the banquet scene of a hunting trip to Hungary. Hungary was the destination simply because "Nobody there cares what you hit when you shoot a gun."

It is King Lear gone mad. It is "how much humiliation are you willing to take on the chance you'll get a piece of the pie?". It is the other guests saying and doing nothing because at least it is not them being humiliated. It is the Seventh Cross. It is everybody in the room reevaluating their life choices, especially the one where they crossed Kendall during the "no confidence" vote on Logan's sanity last season. But is Kendall really the shell of a human being he has seemed to be this season? Or is it a secret game he plays of waiting until the time is right? We shall see.

The sad part of this is you just know Boar on the Floor is going to be the new hazing game that fraternities are going to put their pledges through from now on. And it will be all the rage at executive training camps. And a bunch of other places the 99% seldom get to see.

The tendency for life to imitate art, especially psychologically violent art, is probably why that Superbowl commercial ten years ago sponsored by an employment agency, when describing a current job you might want to leave, said "Makes you want to punch cute little animals" used a koala. No teenager can get near a koala. Otherwise there would have been dozens of copycats punching the animal in question with youtube videos of the act.

Highly recommended and as good as the first season finale.
