    I watched the first episode but found it too dark, slow and gloomy to really get into. But I really liked seeing Bateman take a much more serious role and given the reviews its been getting ill give it another crack tonight

    saw the trailer a long time ago but skipped the series because it's 64% on rotten tomatoes, which is a travesty

    rating doesn't do it justice

    I really really enjoyed the first season. Don’t know how it got that low of a score on RT

    Because going by RT is usually a joke. Just go by the audience score, which was a 92.

    Just binged it in time for season 2, that toe nails scene was horrifying to me.

    This is like Breaking Bad for me. No one I know watches it (yet), it’s not perfect but it’s enthralling. Can’t wait.

    All of season 2 is out at once.

    As good as the first season of Ozark was, this season is on another level. It's blowing my mind.

    The season premiere is a masterpiece. Wish I could do more than one episode a night.

    It's as good of a single episode of any series as I've ever seen. Right up there with the likes of "Five-O".

    I still have a problem with how the show doesn't leverage the strength of the criminal organizations it portrays. The cartel wouldn't have let these two-bit hillbillies and Kanas City mafia push them around. For how brutal they portray the cartel they seem to let slights pass to main characters pretty easy.

    this is all true but required for storytelling

    Breaking Bad would have ended in season 1 if we applied logic to that too

    Midway through Season 2 and I gotta say, I think this show has really stepped it up a notch

    Laura Linney is absolutely killing it this season! Bateman too

    When is she not? :)

    The woman is an absolute juggernaut of an actress. She's cast perfectly in Ozark on top of that.

    Season 2 is much better than the first season, so far. I just finished episode 5.

    Charlotte looks nothing like the rest of her family. She's way too exotic looking to be the offspring of Bateman and Linney

    I really liked season 1, apart from Bateman's bad acting during
    the torture scene. "Ooh, that hurt, owie."

    There’s a lot of bad human beings on this show but Marty is possibly the worst. He acts like he cares about his family but he only cares about what he thinks is in their (and therefore his) best interest.

    I felt like it wasn’t as obvious in Breaking Bad until the later seasons. This show, while great, has been really bad since day one.

    I don't think Season 2 finished particularly strong

    It seemed to get a little too silly towards the end with
    Mason kidnapping Wendy
    ,
    Charlotte wanting to be emancipated
    ,
    the Snells surviving their assassination attempt
    ,
    Cade killing Petty
    ,
    Darlene killing Jacob
    , etc.
