    Ozark

    New netflix show starring Jason Bateman as a money launderer for the Mexican cartel being forced to move to definitely Missouri due to some dodgy business.

    Bit like breaking bad with rednecks, about 5 episodes in and really enjoying so far.

    Anyone had a look at it?

    It's on my ever-growing list of things to watch.

    One question. Why is the title Ozark if they're in Louisiana? I assumed from the title that it took place in the Ozark Mountains?

    Haha fair enough.

    But yeah it's on my list to watch, right after the newest season of House of Cards.

    Watched episode 1 last night. Great show. Compelling TV. Bateman is spectacular in this role.

    3 episodes in now and this is pretty good. Bateman is killing it. So is Linney. It's derivative, sure (kinda like Breaking Bad, The Riches, and Ray Donovan all rolled up), but it has it's own feel in this genre and I genuinely want to see what Marty's gonna come up with. And I guilty pleasure most things featuring southern American backwoods. Hope it keeps building up.

    Julia Garner really does it for me in this. It's that trailer park hot thing

    3 in and I think it's great so far. Kind of predictable, but it's got a real claustrophobic vibe to it. Bateman is excellent too.

    So it took me a while to really get hooked but I'm way in now. It actually made me forget game of thrones was even on tonight.

    That's saying something

    Started this. I'm 2 episodes in and it's very good so far. Definitely got that Breaking Bad vibe.

    Bateman is tremendous so far, both as actor and director.

    I banged out oh 9-10 episodes over the holiday weekend lol. I have no clue where my Monday went as it was mainly me watching the 2nd season. I'm actually a bigger fan of this season than the first. Very very well put together and Jason Bateman, as great as he is, probably 5th-6th best on the show.

    I churned through s2 and absolutely loved it. Better than s1. Incredible cast of characters and even better storytelling.

    Love this show, and season 2 topped the first beautifully. Only thing I'm not digging is Garner's over the top accent. It gets pretty annoying when every scene she's in goes to "Get the FUCK outta here... Move the FUCK outta the way... Shut the FUCK up... What the FUCK are you talkin about..." etc.

    Bateman was on Ellen and didn't confirm a season 3 but the way he made it sound was that they (NETFLIX) were more than likely going to give us a season 3 due to the positive reception both seasons have received.

    Finished up season 2 last night. Thought it was a very fun watch, again. Seems like all of the characters, no matter how big their role is, deliver.

    Very excited. Even more reason to pray the cable company figures out what is wrong with my internet on Friday.

    2 episodes in. It's still excellent, rivaling Better Call Saul for best current drama on television. Why I don't like the full season binge drops Netflix does is it kills the communal episode-to-episode discussion. This show deserves it.

    Spoilers up to S3 E2:

    You gotta label your tags man, idk if I can click those

    That’s why binge drops are the worst. On my other message board I wouldn’t dream of going into the ozark thread until I’m done with the season

    And I mean I’m assuming you’re not spoiling anything after episode 2 since that was how I labeled my tag but can’t risk it.

    I’m through 4 episodes now btw

    It is literally just general commenting on the point(s) you made. You brought up something you couldn't remember, so I answered it. Had nothing to do with what's going on...just your memory lol.

    I'm finishing the finale tonight.

    Eh, she’s never been disobedient. It was never personal and she wouldn’t go rogue if reassigned. She was the model employee from what I can tell. Maybe you’re right but I would hope there’s more to it than that. As I said I expect to get more insight next season.

    Just burned through series 3. Loved it.

    No spoilers, but Laura Linney should be getting an Emmy for that performance.

    She's insanely good. What facials.

    I'm not sure why I should hugely hate Darlene. What is the difference between her and the Byrdes REALLY. We shouldn't really be rooting for the Byrdes here. They're killing their own family members for the good of the drug cartel and happily turning away witness protection every time it's offered. Everyone is protecting themselves first, their family second, with greed seeping in every which way.

    Ruth is the true hero of this.

    It beat you over the head with the first episode in terms of how comfortable it is to show its level of aggression. The more I've seen the show, the more I like the episodes that Bateman directed (he directed the first two you saw). The director that ended season 3 was fantastic too.

    I might be the only one who sees it, but a bearded Justin Long could resemble Tom Pelphrey (Ben). That would make for a weird change though, haha.

    Bateman said they haven't gotten word if Netflix will green light a season 4 but they are hopeful to get good news.

    Season 2 finished finally. Getting even better, not going to binge watch 3 like I did the other 2 seasons.

    You say that now, but trust me, you will. It's the best season of the series.

    More than likely it will unless Netflix decides to stick to their rule of 3 seasons lol. Plus with the coronavirus I'm sure they're not going to greenlight anything at the moment. Also, I think that there was a huge gap between 2 and 3 because Bateman did that other show on HBO. Either way, the show is fucking dope.

    Ok Ruth needs a victory here. I don't care about anything else.

    Would be nice to see Wendy fucking die but of course she'll probably take over the cartel and fucking eat Jonah or something.

    There's a new trailer out but honestly I recommend not watching it as it seems to give a lot away.

    I caught up on the latest 7 episodes in anticipation of the final 7 dropping. Thoughts:

    Generally, the show has somewhat gone downhill. I haven't done a re-watch so those first couple seasons are several years in my rearview, but I feel like it used to be better when the scale was smaller. It's the writing/story that's the issue for me. It was one thing when the cartel was only represented by a local enforcer, but now that we've got the cartel boss(es) and the FBI higher ups involved, the plot points and character motivations/choices are getting more and more absurd. I just can't imagine this is how a cartel or the FBI operates. It's one thing to have Darlene out here murdering people and dealing heroine and explaining it by having her own the local redneck law enforcement, it's another thing to have the FBI and a billion dollar organization (cartel) acting so ridiculously. It feels like the cartel is solely focused on the Byrdes and their relatively rinky dink money laundering operation, LOL. I would compare it to House of Cards in that it's well produced but the plot swings are very over the top which makes it hard to buy in as a viewer. Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying it, but what I'm describing is why it's not top tier drama a la Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Sopranos, etc.

    I really hate Wendy. It's not like when people hated Skylar White even though she was a mostly good person and victim of her husband; rather, they have made her intentionally villainous and wrong in her attitude toward Jonah. As BGM said, maybe they made her insufferable so that her death will be a deserved reckoning. Or maybe they're setting her up to have a breakdown and then a redemption. My guess would be all 4 of the Byrdes survive the show but lose all of their money/success/power and have to start a new life from scratch as normal folks. But we'll see. If any of them die it will be shocking IMO.

    Ruth is definitely the character who needs to win, as RP said. Using her cleverness to somehow kill Javi would be the obvious thing to happen, even though she is completely powerless against him currently.

    Marty, for all his fault in the entire plot of the show, is still a pretty great protagonist. Wendy's heel turn has made him more likable by comparison.

    The lawyer guy is definitely going to die.

    The production value, direction and acting is still top notch. Hopefully they can pull off a satisfying conclusion even as the story has gotten more and more absurd.

    2 more days.
    @Fro I want this to end on some type of self-reflection/redemption ending but I don't see it. I think we're going to see Wendy die, we're going to see one of the kids die in a shocking tear jerker moment, Ruth will probably die.

    I'm prepared for the worst on some of their fates. Marty dying would be shit. The guy who got sucked into a bunch of bullshit via his partner dying....? Fuck that.

    I'll change my guess. I say when the show ends, 3 out of the 4 Byrdes will be alive. The deceased will be Jonah.

    (I haven't watched a single trailer for the final episodes, btw)

    I haven't watched any trailers either I try to avoid trailers for shows/movies that I want to see because these days those previews tend to ruin a lot lol. Anyone see the Foo Fighters horror movie? Don't. They pretty much reveal every death in the trailer in order lol.

    Glad it's back. First episode felt stretched out, but eh. Glad it ended how it did.

    Onward to Episode 2!

    I thought the first ep was good. Really felt like a true first episode of a new season instead of just the first episode of a half. Anyway it was damn near all Ruth which was awesome as shit.

    Gonna be so sad after Wendy kills everyone/sends everyone to jail including her own children and possibly anybody else's who just happen to be nearby.

    The ending did feel more like a mid season finale. Eh, still happy w/ the show overall. Great writing, minus all the FUCKS from Ruth.
