I'm so happy I watched, the ending was something I never expected....was not ready for it

Bateman is fabulous and the woman who plays his wife, is extraordinary....

I felt so sorry for the preacher, he has definitely lost it...

it is amazing how many murders they all get away with?

Unlike Breaking Bad which had a certain logic and flow, I did not find that in Ozark.

However, I am not totally down on the series, I thought the last episode was the best and there may be hope for it after all.
Exactly how I feel. I lost interest after one or two episodes BUT it's decent enough that I will probably finish the season someday.

Perhaps I should give the series more time. After all I believe I did not start enjoying Breaking Bad until about 7 episodes in.

gosh, I thought Bateman did a fantastic job, fast talker, great for the part....

take it for what it is, entertainment, and leave the rest, if it doesn't please you, then get out....

I'm planning on watching Breaking Bad over the holidays, although would also like to watch House of Cards.

I loved it, Bateman crushed it. I know he does mostly comedies, but it was good to see him in a serious role. I liked him in The Gift, which was a serious movie. he's funny as hell but also good in dramas.
yeah, that surprised me a tad....lol

that woman is a real sick cookie, isn't she....real trigger happy, or should I say, glass happy.

I am only on episode #4 so I haven't read the other replies. I like it okay so far but a few things bother me:


1) The portrayal of the people in the Ozarks. I live not far from the Lake of the Ozarks and my dad was born and raised there. You wouldn't really see people like the people portrayed in the series there. The Lake of the Ozarks is mostly filled with people from Kansas City and other surrounding areas with enough money for a lake house and a boat. And there are lots of big, expensive boats. Watching the show, you'd think they were all destitute rednecks. They're not. There are places in backwoods Missouri that you might see people like in the series, but not to that extent. And not murderous drug-addicted thieves.


2) Why all the profanity? Can't they get their point across without profanity every other sentence? That's a turnoff for me. I wouldn't hang out with people in real life that talked like that constantly, and I don't want to see it on the series, either.


3) Why the porn/perversion angle? Is that really necessary? I don't see that it adds anything to the storyline. Again, it's a turnoff for me and I don't know if I will watch the entire series if the rest of it is filled with profanity and perversion. I'm no prude, but I just think it's excessive.


Also, the religion angle isn't realistic. The way they show that angle is more realistic for extreme southern Missouri, like Branson. Not Lake of the Ozarks.

Too bad they have to push the disgusting man love on us. Was completely unnecessary. Good show otherwise.
