After the dissolution of his team finds him reassigned to a disinterested new supervisor, a creative Gus partners with Robert to catch Clement’s attention.

Learned Behaviour

As Pierpoint is shaken by a former employee's scathing exposé, Eric goes offsite for the day, prompting an unauthorized Gus to cover trades from his desk, while Harper maneuvers her way into a meeting with one of Eric's coveted, disgruntled ex-clients. But when Gus and Harper both cross the line, they risk compromising their futures at the bank. Following Robert's successful first business trip, Clement treats him to a special outing, while Yasmin works her connections to land a major client meeting.

Maybe if the creators are able to give the context some real meaning, Industry will evolve beyond tawdry, infectious fun into something more HBO-appropriate, as opposed to "Too spicy for Freeform, not spicy enough for Starz." The upside feels like a YA version of Succession.

It’s not so much Succession (or even Showtime’s Billions) as it is a more high-toned and raunchy Grey’s Anatomy. ... Maybe Industry isn’t a world killer, but it’s fun enough to be worth seeing now.

Sometimes it’s very funny, but at other times it’s plain cruel. Underneath the spiky and unfamiliar exterior, though, is a beguilingly original series that ought to mark the launch of several major careers, not least those of its creators, barely into their thirties, for whom this is a precocious debut.
