    A very belated thank you for the explanation! I must have stopped early because I remember the first part about the land but completely missed the rest of the plan. Thanks for filling me in as trying to fast forward in Netflix is a chore. :)

    I'm early in this watched 2 or 3 eps but wife and I are getting disappointed that nothing ever goes right for Bateman. Does this change or will this always be so dark? I do enjoy the eye candy :rolleyes:
    Any chance his wife will go work at the club?:yum:i:yum:

    I have no idea what their actual ages are but the wife seemed way older than the husband to me (okay, maybe not WAY older). Maybe Jason Bateman has just aged better but that kept nagging at me. She just seemed too old for him....to me anyways.

    Yeah I felt that too. I thought for sure he was going to end up with the woman who ran the lodge. She seemed more age appropriate.

    Edit: Looking at her age on IMDB I guess not. She's only 40 so she's younger then Bateman by more years then Bateman is younger then Linney

    Laura Linney is a little long in the tooth to be working as a stripper.

    Really enjoyed this and glad there's a season 2.

    As far as the 8 mil vs 50 mil, he promised to launder the 8 mil in a very short amount of time to prove himself (and prolong his life from being killed in ep 1). It clearly can't be done similarly with the new shipment of 50 mil but I don't think the timing expectation to clean that amount is the same. The casino is a great idea.

    How psychotic is that Snell wife, lol? All she wants to do is "make lemonade" or just blow someone's head off!

    I also laughed a couple of times during the scene at the Snell's - first when Del was asking if he made good money since he couldn't tall (as his eyes looked around at the surroundings) and as someone else pointed out when Snell said Mexico is full of Mexicans and they'll just send another.

    I enjoyed watching the entire season, but I do think there were inconsistancies in the show. Its like a lot TV series where during the 1st season when the writers\directors\actors aren't on the same page, and\or they are testing out different idea to see what works. I felt like it series on the edge of being a dark comedy, but it never really got there.

    Also seemed like every character was intended to be corrupted is some form, even the two kids, but that also never seemed to be achieved.

    I thought Del was the big boss. Was he really or was his "checking with his boss" deferral just a trick?

    Surprised no one has yet shown admiration for Ruth's character. Without her contributions to to the plot I'm not sure much of this would have worked out in Marty's favor.

    I'll be done after season two if the Snells are served a giant helping of brutal revenge. Really hate them.

    I loved Ruth. She had ample opportunity to screw him over, and even tried once, but she caught on quickly that partnering with him was in her best interest.

    Not sure if this is what you meant if you really hate them?

    I really liked the series. I can't say that I'd be done with it if any particular thing happens or doesn't happen. Bring it on.

    The show started out a bit slow for me but it soon picked up and I really enjoyed it overall.
    I hated that Ruth was still planning on robbing and killing Marty after he had given her a well-paying job and put some trust in her. The turning point seemed to be when Wendy took care of Ruth after Ruth had been hit by Russ.

    Late to this show, just finished and enjoyed it. Yes there are inconsistencies but what show doesn't have some so I won't nitpik, it was a fun show to watch. I prefer shows like this to something like Better Call Saul (which I do like) where the plot moves at a snail's pace. Ozark moved along quickly.

    Late to the party, but we started a few nights ago. Only through the first two eps so far, but we are really enjoying it. Looking forward to more.

    Will definitely be tuning in. Trying to remember how it all ended in season 1...

    Marty and wife are separated with new identities for her and kids, but they came back. Final episode Marty's drug lord boss is shot and killed by Snell wife?

    I'm sure there's more. Any good recaps online?
