Ruth is my favorite character also, and have to admit I underestimated the Snells this season (most people did). I wonder how the Langmores figure into the second season, and also why they have not registered on the Snells' radar all this time.

Just started watching this. So far only two episodes. I definitely like it, Jason Bateman is great. The first episode pulled us in...wow.. a lot of stuff happened for sure.

This is one of the best quality shows out there. Like many others, I was hooked from the first episode. Every one of the actors does a good job but Jason Bateman and Laura Linney are a great combo. Both are good actors anyway but together they really nail the roles they're playing.

I do wish they'd turn some lights on when they're home.

I think Julia Garner is doing a spectacular job as Ruth. For me she may be doing the best job of them all.

Watched the first two episodes so far. Will continue........

Not sure if someone else has mentioned this (as i did not comb the thread), but I get the impression that the show/storyline is trying to be another Breaking Bad with drug money laundering as the "bad" aspect instead of Meth production......

I just finished watching the last episode.

Like many others here, I thought Ruth was by far the best character in the whole series. She was the main reason why I watched it to the end.

A lot of it was pretty far-fetched.

Except for very few exceptions, it wouldn't have bothered me if everybody in the series over 21 years old would have ended up dead and on the bottom of the lake.

The Breaking Bad commonality occurred to me, too. Also, the "***** bar" aspect reminded me of The Sopranos' Bada Bing, but I've only watched two eps, so I don't know yet if that's going to be a major location.

I don't know.... Maybe I am spoiled by the really good stuff, but I am having trouble finding series I can stick with. Gave up on OITNB, almost gave up on House of Cards. Just gave up on Ozark in the middle of the third episode.
