Izzit worth watching and sitting thru the sh1tsh0w at the fcuk factory in that fcuk3d-up family?

Tried to watch 2 episodes; while I like the business dealings side of it, I can't stand any of the @$$h0l3s family members and their in-fightings ... the father Roy, the sons, the daughter, the daughter's 'husband', the cousin, the stepmother, etc. ... none, except maybe Ken's ex-wife(?)

I do like Adam McKay's previous works, but I guess he's not the showrunner in this series.

(or maybe that's why it's that good?, to be able to get on my nerve while watching the show ... I didn't fast forward or skip, I'll try to give a show a fair 2 or 3 episodes full trial before deciding to give up or continue).

Season 2 miles better than season 1. Each character has a fulfilling crescendo arc. Shiv, Roman and Kendall are much better flesh out as Roy hanging by a thread amidst internal and external fighting. Going through the assholeries is worth it when finale drop nuclear bomb comeuppance.

Dublin Murders (UK, USA 2019)
Release Date-UK-15 October. USA-10 November
8 Episodes-Weekly-2 episodes available
Creator- Sarah Phelps
Stars- Killian Scott, Sarah Greene.

Adapted from the novels by Irish-American crime writer
Tana French. The series covers two of the books,
In The Woods, and The Likeness.

The series opening;

“What if the killed are the lucky ones?
And the rest of us aren’t lucky at all.
We all are. Rejects".

A tearful Rob Reilly (Killian Scott) asks his colleague
Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene).

Set in Dublin, Detectives Rob Reilly, and Detective Cassie Maddox
arrive at the crime scene of a 13-year-old ballet dancer
Katherine Devlin who was found dead in the local woods.
She had just been accepted to the Royal Ballet School
in England.
The same wood, the case similar to one twenty years ago,
a connection to the disappearance of three children, Adam,
Peter and Jamie? Only one returned alive.

Neither Cassie nor Rob wants to be on the case.

A man with a troubled past sniffing a recovered garment?
A strong episode one.
The second episode left us with a lot of questions.

We might have to wait a while

Giri/Haji (2019-UK)
Released date-18 October.Globally-2020.
8 episodes. (All Available)
Stars-Takehiro Hira, Kelly Macdonald, Yosuke Kubozuka
Aoi Okuyama, Will Sharpe

It began with an untimely death, two murders, one
in London and one in Tokyo, both connected.

In a London apartment a man, Saburo(Masaya Mimura),
nephew of a crime lord Endo has a Fukuhara's sword
buried in his back.

In Tokyo, in a Yakuza restaurant, a scene of mass murder.
The corpses in the restaurant were members of the
Fukuhara family.

To avert a war among Yakuza clans, Tokyo's police detective
Kenzo Mori (Takehiro Hira) is dispatched to London to investigate.
Under the cover of attending a course in Crime Scene Management.

Mori lives with his wife, a troubled daughter(Aoi Okuyama)
and two aging parents.

As Fukuhara himself put it, “someone threw a stone in
a pond a long way away and we’re only just feeling the ripples.”
He thinks his 'dead' brother, Yuto is responsible.
Yuto, who has long been presumed dead.

In London, he meets DC Sarah Weitzmann (Kelly McDonald)
who runs the course he is on. She is struggling with her own
abusive past.
And Rodney (Will Sharpe), a half-Japanese, half-British
rent boy who becomes his guide in London.

A very strong cast.
This one is a winner.
