Ozark- Netflix

Recommended Posts

Delete and ban if there's another thread, but I didn't see it other than a reference in the Netflix thread.  Only 2 episodes in, but I am digging it.  Pretty heavy duty.  Jason Bateman does a great job.

I also thought it was pretty good.  The chick with the curly hair will get on your nerves really quickly, but the season ending is really, really good.

I said on the other site that my wife’s cousin plays Snell. Y’all have probably seen him in a ton of other shit too (Trainspotting, Children of Men, War Horse, Braveheart). Anyway we tried to meet up with him in ATL in March but they were filming all night. One of the local cousins said they had to build a replica of the house they used for Snells in S1 because the owners were so offended by the drugs in the show. csb

Whatever she’s the best character.

Plot holes big enough to fly a jumbo jet through. Started out strong but I felt pretty meh by the end. I’ll probably watch season 2 but can’t say I’m excited for it.

First episode was fantastic.  Lost some of its luster as the season progressed, but I'm a big Jason Bateman fan and enjoyed it despite its flaws.

Plus, it's got Laura Fucking Linney!

the chick with the curly hair is the best character on the show, which itself starts hot and then gets lame. way too many plot holes, way too much that doesn't add up. the shaggy thread on this show reflects this. also the lighting- jesus, such a beating to watch.

I really liked it. A few plot holes, but nothing to tune out over. I hope they follow the racist Mizzurah family angle because that shit is rampant. Solid cast. Look forward to S2.

Yeah, forgot about that one. He’s been on a roll the last few years.

I really liked it, despite the plot holes.  Agreed curly haired girl is great, along with Bateman.  Looking forward to this season.

I know this is silly question, but when it said, "Coming, August" .....that means 2018, right?  As in...next month?  But no specific date?  Most Netflix series drop on Tuesday or Friday, like movies do.  But I would think so close to release, they could just go ahead and tell us the actual date.  I know they'll want to bleed that into a second teaser that we keep coming back to, but anybody know from other website sleuthing---the actual drop date of the episode haul?

Got it.  Did not see that on the trailer.  At the 0:54 marker on the trailer, it merely says "This August"...nothing about the 31st.  

Should make for fun watching on the way to my meeting with my banking regulators.  given the theme.

I have 2 more episodes of Season 1 to get through.  Ep 8 where they flash back to what led up to all this makes me think Wendy is a bigger cunt than I originally thought.  She knew what Marty was getting into and encouraged it.  Then when it blows up, she's all incredulous.  Bitch.

I thought it was ok-to-good. It reminds me a lot of Bloodline in that it was a good idea for one season of TV, but I question how they'll stretch things out over multiple seasons. And much like Bloodline, I worry that season two will be boring and I'll bail on it midway through the season.

I kind of agree. The good thing about Netflix/Amazon shows is they drop all at once, so you can get quick reviews of the entire season before deciding to start the first episode. That’s better than Westworld or True Detective that string you along before you finally realize it isn’t improving.

And I powered through all 3 seasons of Bloodline but I complained loudly.

handmaid's tale, westworld, 13 reasons why, goliath.

I knew Bloodline had nowhere to go after season 1. Glad i bailed.

I’m just now starting Goliath. Just one episode in.

Ozark was fine and it will tide me over until other good shows return. When considered in that light i don’t mind the risk of a letdown in season 2.

I thought Bloodline season 2 was better than season 1, season 3 went off the rails and was disappointing.

Goliath season 1 is very good. Mixed reviews on season 2, but I enjoyed it more than others.

I liked Ozark. Was good, not great.

I skipped all of your comments just to say I watched s1e1 last night and it was really good. Hope the rest of the series maintains the awesomeness.

In.

Who did that cover of The Man That Sold the World?

Can’t think you are referring to Nirvana unplugged?

99% sure it’s been 31 August since announced.  But season 2 talk did kinda come outta nowhere.  One little teaser and some casting chatter and most conventional wisdom thinking well into Autumn for a release.  Then just like that, Labor Day weekend.  It sticks in my head because my tech dumbass still doesn’t know how to queue up a few episodes on my laptop for air travel to Maryland game that weekend.

Season 2 of bloodline was fine but went way off the rails after that.

Ozark has more potential and story options just not sure where it will go. Looking forward to it.

No. The version in the trailer for the second season that was posted up thread.

Might be Ryan Bingham ("The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart).  He's covered it before.  Doesn't sound EXACTLY like him, but it's in the same vein.

If one of the two dark haired brothers comes back as an adult working for the rednecks or the cartel, I'm gonna lose my shit.  In a good way. Wasn't the dad a pilot, he could help run some product?

the show is too dark, aesthetically. it beats you over the head with how dark everything is.

 

Are you just going to keep posting this until someone either agrees with you or acknowledges your opinion?
