VIDEO: The Succession / “L Word” Crossover Credits Absolutely Nobody Asked For

I began watching the program “Succession” because everybody seemed to be talking about it and I was curious what the “big deal” was. I’ve now watched both seasons in their entirety, with genuinely rapt interest, but my understanding of my own interest — let alone the interest of others — remains vague.

Regardless, as with so many other things in this life related to The L Word, I felt called to service, and I performed. Enjoy.

  1. I don’t know what Succession is but this intro would have vastly improved the experience of watching The L Word

  2. Succession! is! so! good!

    I… have never seen the l word. And this video… I don’t know if it makes me more interested in watching it or less..?

  3. I started watching Succession but had to stop because I wanted to reach into the TV and punch the son in the face really bad

  4. who knows wtf Succession is, but this trailer is more truthful to the L Word experience than the Betty monstrosity we have to normally sit through. Cheers!
