The Byrdes and their teenage kids, Charlotte and Jonah, are, for all intents and purposes, an ordinary family with ordinary lives. Except for the job of Marty, a Chicago financial advisor who also serves as the top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico. When things go awry, Marty must uproot his family from the skyscrapers of Chicago and relocate to the lazy lake region of the Missouri Ozarks.Written by
While watching the show, many lake scenes of the "supposed" Lake of the Ozarks, appear tranquil. This was accurate about 25 - 30 years ago in various areas of Lake of the Ozarks, but today, the lake is overwhelmed with an immense amount of boat and automobile traffic from vacationers and local home owners. In addition, many scenes show the family outdoors sitting on a deck enjoying an evening. The real Lake of the Ozarks mosquitos would eat them alive on a typical summer evening. See more »
Decent show, solid production, sets up second season well
So, you should probably watch this show if you're reading the reviews. Ozark isn't for everyone, probably 30-45 year olds who aren't homophobic (like several reviewers on here), and can follow a story that doesn't always follow a linear narrative. Oh yeah, and folks who understand subtext.
Is it the best show ever? Well, no. Is it one of the best shows of 2017, definitely.
