Naval gazing for the the well to do arriviste ?
17 June 2018 | by jmccrmck-65172See all my reviews

I assume that the series is inspired by Sumner Redstone and his Viacom empire and the nutty stuff he did while running the company (in to the ground ?) So I would be on board for that plot / story line. The dialog and characters, arrogant nasty and self centered, are so overplayed ( are there real people that act and talk like that ?) that you really can't get caught up in it and that's without dealing with bizarre camera work, do we really need both those elements just to make it seem "edgy"? It just is not the least bit subtle, like a teacher at a blackboard giving a lesson not leaving you to do any thinking for yourself. Will you want to watch ? Probably yes but it is more like a train wreck than a well thought out piece of work with high production values. So yes you may be drawn in but I can't imagine anyone really getting lost in the drama like you might in a really well done work of cinema. Potential , yes, substance in short supply.
