Good news!

One thing I meant to mention (not sure if it has) but I liked the little graphic preview that would appear at the start of each episode.

Yeah, those were cool, though I didn't always catch all of the references during the episode.

Ran through it pretty quick last week. Enjoyable show, pretty surprised at that last episode with del, didn't expect that at all...

No feeling the FBI guy though, way too much of a loose cannon, too emotional, and the whole boning his confidential informants thing.

Re: Ozark (Netflix) S: Bateman, Linney -- Season 1 Thread -- premieres 7/21/17

Nice to see Bateman do some serious acting. It was refreshing to see a character of intelligence, who is family oriented, determined and not wishy-washy like his previous comedic work. When your family is on the line, you'll do anything to get things done.

As for Ruth. I agree with the previous comments on how she sees Marty: A father figure and someone who respects her. She sees how he loves his family and I think she wants to be part of his. He could have brushed her off, but he gave her a second chance. Who gives someone managerial control of a strip club after they attempt to rip you off? So we should see some interesting things coming for Ruth in the next season.

Julia Garner has really stepped up her game in this. I first noticed her in Martha Marcy May Marlene. And she continued to put in strong work in The Americans and Grandma.

She always looked to me like she stepped out of a 1920s silent movie.

I thought she was brilliant in this.

Agree on her look too.

Re: Ozark (Netflix) S: Bateman, Linney -- Season 1 Thread -- premieres 7/21/17

I finished it last night - I liked Bateman and how there was a very cold relationship between him and his wife - well acted and played.

However

Spoiler:
I did not like the ending of the wife blowing the guys head off - way too off the wall.. She had to get the shot gun from across the room - where it was hanging on the wall. The Cartel had a body guard who was standing right there... I would think his purpose was to constantly be aware of the surroundings and on the 'lookout' for an ambush etc..

I would have liked it ending with the agreement, and next season pick up with the riverboat situation, or them working to get it started - then you could have things falling apart or bumps in the road.

They did not kill Marty because they were afraid of the Cartel coming to kill them, but they have no problem killing 2 cartel guys in their own home

I thought there was a shot of her hiding the gun in the couch. Also they were leaving after a productive meeting. The BG may have turned?

What I hate was the conversion afterwards. Anyone who has fired a shotgun inside knows no talking until the bells stop ringing.

Spoiler:
Mrs. Snell acts on impulse and has a temper - so when Del pushed her buttons, all that went out the window and the 2 cartel guys wound up dead. You're right that it's not logical to kill the cartel guys - but that's the point... impulse/anger took over logic for a few seconds.
I don't have a problem with how it played out because it was in line with Mrs.
Snell's personality and made sense in how the situation was set up. If it was done as a strategy in cold blood - then it wouldn't have made any sense.

Mild final episode spoiler:

Spoiler:
That was a helluva plunge for a baptism.

That scene was a little cheesy but the show was aces, overall.

Amazing series. Glad it got picked up for season 2. I probably should have stayed out of here until I finished it though. Hearing it got renewed kind of killed some suspense for the ending. It makes a few things obvious and sort of spoils it.

Better than anything I have seen this year.

Netflix has done an amazing job recently. There are some great foreign series on there as well.
The Break
Case
Paranoid
Deep Water
Marcella

Are some I would recommend as well. Of course you may need to read subtitles on some of them.

Re: Ozark (Netflix) S: Bateman, Linney -- Season 1 Thread -- premieres 7/21/17

As someone who grew up in the Lake of the Ozarks area in my teenage years I can say that they were really able to capture the look and feel of the lake area quite well, the people too. I didn't realize it at the time I was living there, the 80s, but now in hindsight the lake was a really sleazy place, probably still is, maybe more so because of meth and such.

Anyway, good show!

Another thing about Ruth that occurred to me:

Spoiler:
She did suspect her uncle was acting weird when he has asking her when she was going to try to kill Marty again. That could have contributed to her killing them. She suspected something was up

Oftentimes, places are as idyllic as our blinders. Open the blinders a bit and just about everywhere has a seedy underbelly (to varying degrees). The best one can hope for is a place where it's not prominent or invasive.

Look at shows like Breaking Bad and Weeds. That's part of what they showed. Those weren't exactly slums where Walter White and Nancy Botwin lived. For most of the people, it was PTA meetings and soccer practice. But beneath the surface...

The show isn't about tourism, but one thing I find strange is that it's supposed to be a vacation destination (people coming in for the summer), but I haven't really seen anything in the show that makes me think, "I need to take a vacation there." Maybe it's just the big city guy in me, but what exactly is there to do there other than ride on a boat? I'm not saying it needs rollercoasters, etc. But there has to be something to do, even when relaxing and vacationing. That's just a small thing that made it a bit difficult for me to understand exactly how much money was going through the area and how he'd money launder. The show did slightly address that though when he expresses reservations about success and said "There's nothing going on here."
