Topic: Ozark

Netflix original.

Get used to Jason Bateman and this is pretty bloody good. 

Up to Ep 4 an a very interesting character has turned up.  Quarry fans should enjoy.

Anyway - the story of a financial adviser who launders money for a drug cartel.

Watched first episode, intend to binge the rest over the weekend. Got a good feel to it, palate etc. Sounds a bit pretentious that doesn't it?

It's since I started following @Colorseffect on Twitter. They put up a still from a film and, as far as I can tell, a colour chart from Dulux bellow it them marvel at how smart they are.
Makes me feel cultured.

He spent all night staring down at the lights of LS. Wondering if he could ever go home.

Re: Ozark

Up to episode 7 of series 1. To be honest, every time it came up on Netflix I'd see Bateman and be a bit, mmmm not sure. He's great in it. And the 'palate' comment is bang on. So many news shows are beautifully shot these days.

Re: Ozark

Started series 2 last night - did the first two.

Enjoyed.  Some classic jump shocks and Mrty Bird running around like a blue arsed fly - how there are enough hours in the day for that man.

I like how they build tension when there is not a lot going on.  The hick father standing in the doorway drunk - your mind racing - will he try and force himself on his daughter?  No - he just gets into bed and sleeps.  That sort of thing. 

It is what they did in Quarry.  Love that shit.

Anyway - good stuff.

My opinion alert.

The woman - the attorney who keeps saying 'my client' - she is the client.  The big boss.

Re: Ozark

On with season 2. Agree about the bit with the Dad, thought exactly the same thing.

Re: Ozark

Yeah great stuff. Not sure about that lawyer though. Doesnt look very Mexican.

Re: Ozark

I got a bit confused last night.  3rd ep - The story arcs are becoming varied to say the least and Peter Mulan is more Southern than most southerners.

Re: Ozark

Halfway through Season 1. Got a Breaking Bad feel to it.

That's what my palette tells me

Re: Ozark

I have three more of S2.

Hoping to complete tonight.

The last episode I watched was superb.  Marty unraveling in some style.
