Advertisements Soooo there's a first time for everything I guess. A lot of friends recommended Succession and I came across S1E1 the other day and figured I'd check it out. It was somewhere in the middle of the episode. I only got through 10 minutes because I couldn't handle the god awful way this thing is filmed. I absolutely get the "hand held camera" design for this show- they're going for a "just like you're there!' feel...and it's good. But what I can't wrap my head around is the inability to hold a shot for more than a second before we zoom in and out 100 times. What is that? I realize this is on purpose and probably speaks to some sort of "artistic commentary mirroring the frenetic underpinnings of a family at war", or something.... but it makes it unwatchable for me. If they went 50% with the "wacked out camera movement" idea, I personally would love it... but they went the full hundy, and all it does is completely take me out of the storytelling. I love the hand-held, go-anywhere aspect (much more freeing to the actors than a full set up)... but the zooming in and out does it in for me. Am I on my own here? Anyone else unable to stick with it? Or am I being too low-brow by dismissing the show over something so trivial (although I don't think it's trivial).
