I'm sure his Chicago-based financial advisory firm donated plenty of money to Hussein Obama

It's 2017, so the line between politics and entertainment exists no more. Legit thread.

Good show. I'm fine with the ending, though it looks like they were leaving a window open for another season if anyone wanted to renew it.

I fairly enjoyed this show. I liked it quite a bit actually. I love the performances and how they take their time to really develop all of the characters. What is interesting to me is that this show is really more about beaten down people trying to chase their aspirations than it is a fish out of the water crime drama. The FBI agent, the preacher, Darlene, the hot cougar owner at the blue cat, and of course Marty and his wife trying to keep their family normal and in tact: they are all just torturing themselves trying to accomplish their lofty ambitions. It is funny to me that the only people that are really at peace are the two main drug villains, Jacob and dell.

That looks like a nearly 10 year old Odyssey. No way it's worth 27k. Totally takes me out of the show.

Finished it. I dug it.

I agree with most of the reviews that state the show is trying too hard to be Breaking Bad, but in BB's absence, I'm ok with this. There are a couple of little plot holes, but none that I can't look past.

I liked it a lot. One of the better Netflix original series. The ending was meh.

Of Netflix Original shows, I'd rank them

1) Narcos
2) Stranger Things
3) Ozark
4) House of Cards
5) Last Chance U
6) Orange is the New Black

^^ I agree.

At their core they are both crime thrillers, but BB was about a guy with an amazing product trying to make as much dough as possible, and Ozark is about ppl trying to survive. whether that be the preacher, struggling business owners, the FBI agent, or the Byrd family, they are all drowning in misery. If anything this show reminds me more of True Blood than BB.

I just finished S1. Not bad. I give it a solid B. It's no The Wire, Sopranos, GOT, or BB; but it's way better than The Walking Dead/HOC stuff.

One thing I noticed was the casting. Very normal looking cast. Almost strange it's so normal. Not one super-hot chick on the show. And I love the strippers with gunts, preggos, saggy tits. Real people.

But Laura Linney's white, pasty legs disgust me. Daywalkers.

Season 2 is pretty intense. It is also less plausible than the first season.

I loved season two. Some loose ends plausibility-wise but I like this show more than I did Breaking Bad

The episode with the poppy field is the one that got me. They showed an agent picking up a burned poppy, yet that went nowhere - they would have done analysis on it and found that it was indeed a poppy. Plus, all that was left of that field, after burning, was a darkened level ground. A real burn would've looked a lot different.

Plus, there would have been death records for the Snell's family. They could have found where the family was buried and would have seen that they were dug up.

^of all the things in the show that aren’t plausible you went with uneven ground after a burning?

Show is ok. Worth watching if liked breaking bad but what gets me most is how they throw money around like it’s nothing. I get the need to launder it and there are costs to that but the cartel is going to have like 500k in clean money by the time it’s all done at the rate they are going.

There's all kinds of small little cemeteries on family plots from 100's of years ago that people wouldn't have a paper record of so that's not unrealistic. Jacob said they had to relocate the bodies at one point due to flooding as well.

I agree with you about the poppies though the field was a little too obvious with the CGI work.

thought season 2 was pretty good. i think I like the first better. looks like they are setting up a KC mob war for the 3rd season.
