    He's great, so is Laura Linney as his wife. Bateman is the producer and directed half the episodes btw. Even in serious roles, he still has that sarcastic sardonic sense of humor edge that cracks me up.


    Watched episode one tonight. Great start. And a great bad guy.

  • I'm about four episodes in on Ozark and it is pretty good. I thought the pilot was great, easily the best episode so far. The last couple episodes seem like they are dragging a bit, but I'm still enjoying it a lot.

    Really?

    I feel like it might be moving too fast, there's a lot of plot arcs going on all at once right from the get go. You got the ex partner's story, the wife's lover and his son now, the daughter hooking up with the hillbillie clan, the strip club owner's story, the gay FBI detective, the son and his creepy thing going on with the guns and homeowner who's dying, the crooked cop, the restaurant/resort owner chick and her backstory, the white trash girl and her plot vs now being loyal to Marty.

    There's LOT going on.

    All the stuff I mentioned happened in the first two episodes and were just basic plot overviews. C'mon.

    We're up to episode 7, and while Ozark is still a great show, some of the story lines have VERY convenient and easy actions by the characters to push the plots forward. Sometimes too easy and convenient.

    Just a little nitpick, but still something that is a little irritating.

  • Watched all 10 episodes. Good show. I like how it has a serious plot, but that the show doesn't take itself too seriously. There's funny scenes, craziness, etc. It's like a much faster moving Breaking Bad. As always, the characters, acting, and directorial work make this a good show. The plot/story always takes a backseat when it comes to how good a TV show or movie is...in my opinion.

  • I'm 4 episodes in with the Defenders, and it's just OK for me. Some VERY ham fisted dialogue and every fight scene so far has been the same...........25 Hand idiots with machine guns who apparently took shooting lessons from Stevie Wonder, who then decide to drop their guns and charge the Defenders to get their asses kicked.

    It's fun to see all the heroes together, but like the Avengers it's mostly one liners, arguing with each other and a confusing muddled plot.

    I much prefer the stand alone series where the writers have a chance to really flesh out the dialogue and characters.

  • Yeah Defenders is okay. Enjoyable enough but something is missing. I am currently watching Limitless. Enjoyable show. I assume it's not a Netflix Original though as it has a mainstream network feel to it. Still good.

    I did not enjoy Defenders very much, thought the writing was super lazy and contrived, like they were just going through the motions. I much prefer the stand alone character series. I don't care if they do another season.

    I would like to recommend Atypical though, REALLY good new series. Reminds me of the John Hugh's movies, some very honest, clever and funny writing.........which is hard to find these days. Not easy to write honest dialogue between teenager to teenager, and teenager to parent. Great cast, highly recommended, great for the wifey and kids too (older kids).

    I just finished Defenders the other day and it was definitely mediocre. Entertaining in ways, but seems to be not written all that well. The best thing about it (IMO) was the ending and the opening it left for the next season of Daredevil. That could end up being worth it if they do that right.

    As for Limitless, I actually DVR'd that while it was on CBS, but never watched it once I heard they weren't renewing it. I hope for your sake it does't end in a way that leaves you hanging. BTW, in case you didn't know, it was originally a movie made into a series for Network TV. I haven't done so yet, but I do plan on watching the movie at some point.

    Ozark is good, but nowhere near IMO Breaking Bad........which is what most people are comparing it to.

    Which I know is unfair, but I do recommend Ozark. Interesting premise and locale.

    We're diggin' it so far, up to episode 4. It's kinda Breaking Bad meets American Beauty meets Deliverance.


    Finished up the season last week. Totally enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next season.

    Also, Longmire was a fav. I binge watched all the episodes a couple of months ago, and am awaiting the new season on Netflix. Anyone know when that's supposed to be?

  • Ozark and Breaking Bad are Apples and Oranges. Both are excellent shows but not ones I would compare.

    Ah David, I should have known Limitless was likely cancelled. Well I am 3/4 of the way through the first (and what sounds like the only) season. I guess I will find out soon enough how it ends.

    Hopefully I am not bed ridden for months for any reason but if I am I sure have a great list of Netflix shows to watch thanks to this thread! And here's the list:

    Peaky Blinders
    A Series of Unfortunate Events
    The Magicians
    Jo Koy (Comedy Special)
    The Last Kingdom
    Bloodline
    Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King
    Atypical

    I love Narcos, really well done and the production is through the roof, as with most of these shows.

    Brilliant song choice.


    I'm hoping this is good, I thought he was the best part of Daredevil S2. They definitely locked down the perfect actor for it. (Tom Jane was also good) Show runner wrote a bunch of episodes for Hannibal which was great so he should have the chops for a dark show like this.
