    It liked it OK. Jason Bateman playing against type. The story telling was good. The 2007 episode was totally "what's past is prologue."


    What did y'all think?

    We have watched the first 5 episodes and like it. I went to high school in Ozark, MO and college in Springfield, MO, about 90 miles from where this series takes place, I have been in that area many times. I also lived in SW Missouri for around a decade in my 40s and early 50s, I am 65 now. The way the residents are depicted sure isn't the way I would want the area represented but considering the way methamphetamine use has ravaged much of central and southwest Missouri, I can't find fault.

    It isn't pleasant to watch for me but it is well done, at least through the first 5 episodes.

    2 episodes in. It's fun.

    I've never seen the show it's being compared to in several reviews.

    I binged all 10 in about 2 days. I really liked it.
    I was thinking the end of the last episode was going to be the darkest thing I've ever seen on tv. And it would have fit with the mood of the series. But I'm really glad they went with the baptism.

    I, too, binged it all in 2 days. Great show. I do wonder if we'll get a second season or not. I suppose it could go either way without complaint, though. It was very good.

    I enjoyed the first episode and will likely watch the whole series. One thing though, is it me, or after essentially the whole company disappears, why aren't the police investigating the sole survivor????

    I saw the preview for it last night. It looks good. Once we finish GLOW we'll check it out.

    I watched two episodes last night. Really enjoyed it!! I had not even heard of this, somehow. A friend suggested it based on my complete and utter adoration of all things Jason Bateman. :)

    @uncdrew Drew, did you see them out and about in town? Didn't realize it was even filmed in the area. Pretty cool!

    With the exception of Chicago, the show was filmed in Georgia.

    “… production for Ozark never actually took place in the Ozarks, ironically enough.”

    “… the crew built a near-replica of Alhonna on Georgia's Lake Allatoona, a manmade reservoir (like Lake Of The Ozarks, appropriately) located about a 45-minute drive northwest of Atlanta.”

    In front of...
    Just watched all 10 episodes over 10 days. Was afraid to venture into the thread for spoilers. :) Really liked this show - solid A-/B+ in my book. Julia Garner had a terrific turn as Kimmy on The Americans, but seems to be born to play Ruth F'ing Langmore. Tough as nails with hints of something else that never verges on cliche. Hope there's a second season coming on this one.

    Nice to see some good feedback here. Reading a good review of the series in today's paper and these comments means this will be next on my Netflix queue! :)
