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.

I don’t know what Succession is but this intro would have vastly improved the experience of watching The L Word
orobably a 30 second video of somebody wiping their face with a napkin would be better than the opening theme situation of “The L Word”
This is a fact
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..?
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
If you keep watching this sentiment expands to all of the characters.
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!
