my only slight fear is that I hope they donít make Greg a parody of himself. He was perhaps a tad too stupid in that episode as funny as it was  ;D

So glad itís back. Great start to the season. Really thrilling tv.

Itís the ultimate Ďfamilyí show so perfect time to watch. Maybe you rename all your family members after characters in the show.

I can see the similarities in style to In the Thick of it, the insults, the fast-talking conspiracies, cynicism and back-stabbing, casual egregious insults, dolts in high positions.

BOAR ON THE FLOOR! BOAR ON THE FLOOR!

(Sometimes I had to rewind scenes because I could not believe what was going on.)

Been rewatching the first two series ahead of the new one. I'd forgotten all about that episode. It's horrific. But brilliant.

New series is off to a fine start. I just hope they don't try to ramp up Greg as a comedy character too much. One of the big strengths of the show is that it's very funny but most definitely NOT a comedy.

Episode 2 was another highlight.

Jesse Armstrong has really mastered the art of having a character say all the right things, but

And the occupant of said clown car with a subtly masterful performance, Connor Alan Ruck (No idea from where Connor came)  is killing it this series...

It's so frustrating when they're all in a room together like that and they can't work it out. If they all just banded together you know they could take Logan down but there's always something that scuppers it, whether it be one of them going too far with an insult or a case of donuts arriving and the whole thing falls apart. It's like they're all so irrevocably damaged by Logan that they're paralysed when it comes to the idea of doing anything against him.

Yeah I think thatís the point, despite their bravado sometimes theyíre all still quivering children living in fear, despite being in their 30ís and 40ís.

With that said, I do think another one is actually with Kendall not sure who though (or maybe thatís wishful thinking)

I actually think Shivís initial plan when heading to Ravaís was to join up with Kendall, but everything that happened, Roman and Connor turning up unexpectedly, Kendall pushing for himself to lead the revolution when explaining the plan, the delivery from Logan, even the fact that Connor and Roman had both declined Kendall by the time Shiv had to make a decision. I was talking to my partner and we agreed that we would both join Kendall in that situation, but itís easier said than done when you look at it from their perspective, who their dad is, the implications of it all.

I loved that Logan barely remembered sending his kids donuts while the fear of the donuts being poisoned probably broke a potential alliance of maybe Shiv and Connor with Kendall. Or perhaps he knew exactly what he was doing.
