What’s it about
A financial adviser and his family are forced to relocate after dealings with a drug cartel go awry.Ozark is smart, well-crafted, and says something.
Ozark: Their Last Resort. The Byrdes, husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), their teenage kids Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) ¡ª are for all intents and purposes an ordinary family. Ordinary save for Marty¡¯s job: The top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico.
so did a two day binge watch of Ozark. I personally think the show is excellent. They make the setting somewhere in MIssouri, but there as soooo many picts of lake lanier from the air, that there is not mistake that its here. Also, pretty amazing how they contrasted the corruptness of a mexican drug cartel with a homegrown hillbilly crime syndicate, this is where the comparisons between this show and Breaking Bad fail. This is more like combining Breaking Bad with Justified, both shows were brilliant. There were also criticisms of Jason Bateman, who directed and acted, saying his character was stale and unemotional, however, you have to watch the show all the way through. I thought he played it well: a man under unbelievable duress who had to shut down all his emotions Laura Linney is amazing and so is a bright upstart by the name of Julia Garner. The FBI agent played by Jason Butler Harner blew me away, this guy is amazing. The show is multifaceted, and there are just so many scenes that leave you slack jawed, wondering ¡°Did that just happen?!!!¡± Really some amazing stuff and cudos to the writing staff. I loved it. Watch it all the way through.
