Looking for a new series to bingewatch? We have it for you! Ozark starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney is a little bit of Breaking Bad, a little bit of Narcos, and a little bit of Silver Spoons (C’mon, I had to put that in there for Jason Bateman – he’s come a long way since his role as Derek :))
If you have not caught up on Ozarks already on Netflix now is the time. We enjoyed this series for many reasons but mostly due to it’s crazy storyline where Marty (Jason Bateman), known to many as a respected financial advisor and family-man, is not what he seems to be. He decides to move his family to the Ozarks to launder money for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico. What could go wrong with that?
We love stories where regular people actually do some pretty crazy things. Marty’s character is similar to Walter White from Breaking Bad. (If you have not watched that you really better get going because you have a lot of Netflix to catch up on.) Watching the crazy unfold in this series was similar to Breaking Bad – there’s intrigue, a little stress, and we found ourselves rooting for a guy doing bad things. As you move along through the series you realize deep down he is trying to save his family.
With every dirty deed he does, the plot gets more twisted. More players are added that are just as dirty (in their own way). What you have is many little stories, all pretty messed up, forming one big cluster! Makes for some great TV. There are some pretty evil things that happen during this series so be prepared. Watching this show will make your life seem a lot less crazy! See the trailer below. We highly recommend it!
The good or bad news, depending on how you look at it, is that there is only one season available on Netflix. Fortunately, according to Variety.com Netflix has renewed Ozark for another season. Yay Netflix!
