It was very hard to get into this TV series. It is full of swearing, and the story-line is slow. It is a character-driven series, and the acting is good. I have to admit that I was bored at times though.

I hung in for 2 episodes and returned to library. Cancelled being on wait list for season two. My time better spent watching something less boring and without the constant fighting and bickering between the siblings. Suppose to be satire? Really?

Managed to hang in through the first episode. Seems like the approach here is to substitute f-bombs for competent writing and acting.

After that episode I realized that I honestly did not care what happened to any of the characters. The entire purpose of an initial episode is to hook you to the point you want more. In that regard it was a total failure. Seemed a good investment to bank the time I would have spent watching the rest of the season and I did just that.

The American "Downton Abbey", with equally, if not more, impressive production values, but , predictably, way more coarse, and morally bankrupt

Interesting family dynamics and has a Shakespearean tone to it with a bit of King Lear but not daughters fighting over the family business and legacy.

Very good series. I wasn't a huge fan at first. I felt the acting and writing in the first 5 or 6 episodes didn't flow well - as if the actors and writers were trying too hard. Continued watching and am glad I did. Season 2 is even better.

What a waste and a disappointment from HBO. The only person I liked in the story was unconscious. I did not care what happened to these greedy, narcissistic, idiots who seemed to have a one word vocabulary. I watched three episodes and that was 2 1/2 too many. Terrible!!! Kristi & Abby Tabby

This is a weird show with alot of fbombs. Watched the first 10 mins and couldn’t get into it. It’s not entertaining, interesting or intelligent

Delicious take-down of America's kleptocrats; the family dynamics are well caught.

Whether to laugh or cry? These extravagant creatures rightly belong in a comedy. Who else (besides the Trumps) would name a son 'Iverson'? On the other hand, sometimes they actually get hurt.

(Speaking of England) "it's all quite refined."
"Refined? (Scoffs) Slaves. Cotton and sugar. This country's nothing but an off-shore laundry for turning evil into hard currency."

The good politician, he figures out what the people want, and then he sells it back to them as what they need.

"Look, here's the thing about being rich, okay? It's friggin' great! Okay, it's like being a superhero, only better. You get to do what you want, the authorities can't really touch you, you get to wear a costume, but it's designed by Armani, and it doesn't make you look like a pr**k."
