Ozark


#1

Who is watching/watched?

Only one episode in.


#2

Any good? The still/promo thing for Ozark comes up every time I go into Netflix for the last week or two.


#3

seems it from the first episode… hoping someone else is gonna come in saying… aw my gawd its brilliant…


#4

A couple of my mates have said it’s very good. All I’ve seen is a 30 second piece that they showed on The One Show maybe a month ago when Jason Bateman was a guest. I only watch the most engrossing hard hitting TV magazine programmes you see.


#5

The only thing I heard is that it’s terrible and stupid.


#6

Love it. Aiden Turner’s abs? Phowaarrrr.


#7

It’s good, but it’s so obviously in thrall to Breaking Bad.


#8

read the synopses blurb and it seemed like a gritty breaking bad which i cba with at all

was waiting for folk on here to tell me what it’s actually like and if it’s any good

kthnxbye


#9

It is brilliant, I’m on episode 8!!

LOVE Laura Linney. LOVE HER. Always have, always will. She’s so good in this.

Does anyone else find the whole programme quite… motivating? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

P.S. DO NOT like Peter Mullan minus his Scottish accent though.


#10

I heard it was terrible AND stupid.


#11

I’m halfway through. Starts great but it seems to be plateauing now. There are a couple of characters which are keeping me interested though. Hoping the finale is as good, if not better than, the beginning.


#12

it’s good, but it does sort of fall under the weight of too many side characters. Even the kids sort of disappear for long stretches of plot.


#13

Wait, a gritty breaking bad? The show where the ‘normal’ main dude strangles a guy using a bike D-Lock (this is now the cycling thread)???

I dunno, maybe it got a lot more comedy after the first season.


#14

Breaking Bad has its funny moments.

not sure I’d say Ozark is a grittier version of BB. Maybe if BB’s plot started in S3.


#15

My fav BB season was S2 so I think that’s me out on Ozark then. Had enough of overly dark shows.


#16

I wouldn’t say Ozark is particularly dark! It’s nothing like Breaking Bad in my opinion.


#17

Haha fair enough, I just wanted to jump on the bandwagon and feel involved :stuck_out_tongue:


#18

yeah… its got some money laundering in it… :confused:


#19

Up to episode 5 so far and really enjoying it, although I can sort of see one of the strengths of the show, the relatively diverse plot lines, also kind of being a weakness in the long run if they’re never really resolved fully.


#20

Haha, that’s cool! I just think of that scene in series one of Breaking Bad the bathtub scene I mean… Ozark isn’t even in the same league of grimness.
