    Not if you know I'm referring to what I was talking about previously; that characters on this show have serious plot armour when they do something that should get them killed by the cartel. Especially because Helen says that if you betray Marty Byrde you betray the cartel.

    This season was excellent, much better than the first.

    So I'm just over halfway through season 2, thanks to the guy on the last page the suspense is a bit ruined, but I just don't know who to like? You think you want to like Marty but he's completely incompetent and makes things worse at every turn. His kids don't listen and are going behind his back to mess some things up. The Snells are stubborn and Darlene is just the worst person on the show, how no one's killed her is beyond me. The cartel are the cartel. Ruth is going back to her bad ways and is plotting against Marty while Rachel is trying to kill herself. I guess Wendy is the one who's got the most sense and that you want to see come out on top in the end.

    Season 1 was awesome...But season 2 is getting ridiculous. Too much crazy stuff going on to suspend belief imo. The main goal is to build a casino, and every episode is filled with a spontaneous side quest to keep the objective on track. It doesn't feel like intelligent writing and the dialogue is very straight forward.

    Ruth Langmore is amazing. Give that character a spinoff when this is over.

    Great season, but it infuriates me just how stupid and unrealistic everyone's choices are on this show. It's why this is a good, but not great show for me.

    I just watched the first episode of Season 2. Based on the hype surrounding it online, I was a bit disappointed. People made it out to be some master piece when it was just a solid, 8/10 episode to me. I'm beginning to think companies like Netflix and Disney make fake accounts on message boards to overhype their content, because I really don't see what was so amazing about this episode.

    Do you mean that the Shape of Water was overhyped, or that I shouldn't have expected the same quality from Ozark as the Shape of Water?

    Either way, I had read comments online that the season 2 premiere was on par with the best episodes of television, which is ludicrous to me having watched it now.

    Great season but holy **** was Charlottes story line ever annoying. Probably one of the most annoying characters in a show I’ve watched since Skyler in Breaking bad. I get it, shes in the right the entire way but I’m trying to watch a show about money laundering not a teenage girls mood swings

    Season 2 was pretty solid. Sure some of the story line was a little far fetched but things were still executed well with some good acting.

    “The way it’s always been” as if there’s been more than one season prior to this one. Charlotte was a VERY minor character in the first season and it seemed like they made her extremely grating to draw some attention to the character unnecessarily

    just finished this, thought it was ok, liked season 2 better then 1. It's a show I would watch if there's another season but wouldn't care if there wasn't. The girl that played Ruth Langmore did a great job, also like the job Rachel's and Buddy's characters did.

    This sums up how I feel too. It's a pretty good show, I'd give it like a 7.5-8 out of 10. It's just a cheesier, less realistic version of Breaking Bad to me. They try to push the adrenaline of the storyline in regards to how the Byrd family is always up against the wall, but it loses its significance the more that they do it. A lot of Wendy and Marty's decision making and putting their children at risk is nonsensical; there is no way people that are as smart as they are would make such irrational decisions all the time.

    They also overdid the dark shots in season 2. It actually became distracting near the end, as it was unnecessarily dark all of the time with them filming early in the mornings and always with the lights off. It felt way too forced.

    I thought the season really picked up after the Mason episode. I really like the character development after that one.

    Late to the party as I just finished catching up. I find it entertaining but not very believable and don't think its a show I would watch more than once. Acting is decent but so many secondary people get killed honestly its more shocking if someone lives i.e. when the Snell's survive the cartel hit(although that scene was comical in its own right when Darlene actually had to tell their dumbass driver to attempt to escape from gunfire). Felt pointless to show Petty transferring off the case to be home with his mom just to kill him off right after. If you want to remove the actors would have been pretty easy to have Petty leave the Ozarks and have plenty of options to still kill off Cade in a very similar fashion. Or just have Cade kill a still very much involved Petty.

    It seems like they are going for the GOT shock of anyone can die at any point but really the primary 'good' characters (Byrde family, Ruth, Wyatt) seem pretty untouchable with plot armor.
