"Ozark" Netflix show review
By Rodrigo Osorio
The Hit Netflix Show “Ozark” tells the story of a financial planner Marty Byrde, his wife Wendy, and two kids as they are forced to relocate from Chicago to Ozark, Missouri due to a money-laundering scheme gone wrong. In order to keep his family from being killed Marty must launder 8 million dollars within a few months for the Navarro drug cartel. Along the way Marty encounters several obstacles that range from his wife cheating on him, losing the money he's supposed to launder, interfering with huge drug dealers, and various attempts of killing him and his family. The show is extremely good however it is not talked about as much as it should be. I caught myself many times at 3 am having to continue watching the next episodes due to the fact that I was hooked. At the beginning of each episode, a big “O” appears with four symbols within it giving you clues as to what is going to happen in the episode; it's very original and a great touch. Ozark is rated at an 8.4/10 on IMDB and for good reasons. The character development, writing, cinematography, directing, and actors are all top-notch. You find yourself hooked after one episode which is rare for a show. The show has been compared to Breaking Bad and Narcos due to the drugs and violence however I feel that it is in a class of its own. Ozark is definitely a show worth watching. If you want to see violence on screen, follow the characters' up and down journey, have to constantly guess what is going to happen next, and question your own morals Ozark is for sure the show for you.
