Yeah the pilot was great.  Bateman always delivers, so if you're a Bateman-guy you'll appreciate what he's up to hear.  There's also not a single performance that made me roll my eyes (except the black guy at the end).  Everyone's a talented actor and committed to the script.  This show's definitely gonna get finished soon.  I've never seen Breaking Bad or Justified, but this show kinda reminds me of Bloodline.  Anywho, watch it!

I saw the trailer and it looked interesting.  I lived in the Ozarks when I was really little, so I was pretty curious (and assuming it takes place in the Ozarks, hence the name).

Never been a big Bateman fan...nice, mediocre roles easily forgotten...a poor man's Tom Hanks. An actor who plays conservative too well.

Having said all that...Bateman shines in Ozark!
Lol he plays conservative & gets punched & beaten for it.
He's naive to everyone trying to manipulate him. There's a really cool dynamic where this chick is trying to ruin/kill him yet he thwarts her every plans just by being nice to her.
And the way he treats his cheating wife with passive aggressiveness only seems to be bringing them closer...

It's a well written series, every character just keeps the story going.
