  1. Interview with Jeremy Strong (no paywall). Interesting read: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2021/oct/02/rage-pain-shame-all-mine-jeremy-strong-succession-kendall-roy
  2. According to this Slate article, the Lindbergh speech was not fictionalized: https://slate.com/culture/2020/03/plot-against-america-charles-lindbergh-des-moines-speech.html

    What about Roman’s response to Laird saying he would marry Gerri? Was it my imagination that Roman seemed a bit rattled at the idea that someone [else] would find Gerri a desirable partner? And didn’t Logan say something about Roman wanting “to sleep with your mother”? I’m probably reading too much into this because we’ve been tantalized with the Roman/Gerri dynamic this season. As for who becomes the blood sacrifice, I vote for Shiv. Not because of the character or even the story line; I just think that Culkin and, especially, Strong are much better actors than Snook and I’d like to

    This has quickly become my favorite show on the network. I like the format, with the panel sticking around for an entire hour (occasionally switching one person out) and the panelists are mostly terrific, as is David himself. He's smart, has a sense of humor, and unlike most of the hosts on the network, he actually lets his guests speak without interruption. I've never understood hosts (they know who they are) who ask a question and then talk over the guest who's doing his/her best to answer. If he were to be given a weekday time slot, I would want him to keep to the current format as much
  9. Weisz won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2005 for The Constant Gardener.
  10. And in 2013 Tom Hanks appeared on Broadway in the play "Lucky Guy" for which he was nominated for a Tony as Best Actor. Hanks, however, did not win; the Tony went to Tracy Letts (for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf").
  11. I missed Rachel's show but I assume she was referencing this article from New York Magazine. It's gotten quite a bit of attention, for reasons which are immediately obvious. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/10/12-young-people-on-why-they-probably-wont-vote.html

  13. For a while now I’ve had the feeling that the show has taken off in a different direction in the second half of the season than the writers/showrunners may have originally envisioned. Rob Yang (“Lawrence”) is billed in the opening credits but has virtually disappeared while Arian Moayed (“Stewie”), who gets guest billing at the end of each episode, has become a major player. Peter Friedman (“Frank”) also gets billed at the top of the show; meanwhile, J. Smith-Cameron (“Gerri”), has had at least as much (and perhaps more) screen time but also gets guest billing. I know that billing i

    Why is Shiv marrying anyone at all? She's independently wealthy; she's happy in her career; she's never expressed any desire to have children at this point in her life (which she could do anyway without a husband); and she clearly doesn't take the idea of fidelity seriously. I could more easily understand her choice of Tom as a husband if I could figure out why she's decided to take a husband.
