    Kind of reminded me of the first two seasons of Fargo. Have to suspend some truths/beliefs but if you can do so it's highly enjoyable.

    The Pilot was one of my favorite episodes of TV this year, just awesome from start to finish.

    agreed, it was really awesome, so much so that the other 9 eps couldnt keep up. but as i said the show is still very good.

    Are the 9 people on boats supposed to be the only customers for this multi-million dollar redneck heroine operation? It just feels like such a giant plot hole I must've missed something

    I find the handful of absurd plot holes makes it far less enjoyable than it otherwise would be. It's a good show but it could be a great show imo

    If there's one thing I learned from TV crime dramas like "Ozark" and "Sneaky Pete", it's easy to launder money. At least "Breaking Bad" made it seem a little bit tougher.

    Watched the first 5 episodes. Very solid so far. Really playing up the female roles this year. Every single female is a super strong character. Buddy is the best. Love him this year.

    Netflix outdid themselves with season two, fantastic writing. This the type of enjoyable dark drama Bloodline should have been, but failed at after their season one.

    Show is great. Love it and just finished season 2. My only WTF moment was the texting exchange between Rachel and Marty.

    "Oh hey, I'm wearing a wire so let's talk like something else is up but we will exchange real info via text message communication...

    Marty: sure that's fine... they can't possibly read these texts and she'll definitely delete them"

    I kept thinking that shit would come back to bite him and seemed very dumb

    I was so irritated that she had the volume on her keypad so high and you could hear the fucking clicking as she typed.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't believe no one else is fucking disturbed by the insanity of living on that enormous lake and killing people and burying them in your backyard. Not to mention that Marty owns a fucking funeral home. The Snells are the worst. I've never hated anyone on a show more .

    No need to worry though... they can always just dig up dead relatives with bones significantly older than a 3 month old corpse and then coerce the medical examiner into lying. No big, they got this.

    i am through 6 episodes of season 2 so far and it just isn't good. it enjoyable just from a binge watch/popcorn flick perspective but its not good. they abandoned the slow burn of season 1 and decided to go with crazy, rushed and implausible plot points that keep outdoing the previous episode. like the kansas city mob stuff. they were so against the casino that they shot a trucker's hand off. then one 5 min meeting that episode and everything is good to go. it feels rushed and forced

    its like a better 24 i guess and functions as more of a guilty pleasure compared to season 1 which i thought was more thought out and well constructed.

    i really like bateman so i will keep watching. and honestly enjoy it for what it is. a popcorn flick that is a more sophisticated 24. really like wendy and ruth too

    i know it is a tv show and you have to suspend belief but the cartel being ok with doing business with a guy who has a) stolen from them b) helped cover up murdering one of their high ranking members and c) is openly under fbi investigation is just so dumb. that's one thing where they keep adding crazy plot points (the bodies, killing ash, whatever foolishness they introduce in the last few episodes) and it cheapens the show a lot

    It's definitely an imperfect show. To be honest the cartel having such unencumbered reach in the Ozarks bothers me more. Not sure why as an American I would need to fear the cartel tracking me down and murdering me in that shit hole or in most places in this country.

    It's a show that's so all over the place, I don't really know how to take it sometimes. Laura linney is just incredible in it, and the her caveman daughter just ruins every scene. Cade is a fucking horrible actor and character. It's weird how there's several characters are just fantastic and the the rest are terrible.

    And NYGator I completely agree that the plot issues are hard to overcome at times. I still enjoyed it overall, but it feels so incomplete and poorly done. It has a little bit of a season 2 True Detective feel to me.

    Yea i agree, i’m entertained but there are a lot of plot points that are beyond insane. The cartel are like “hey we monitored your computers” i’m like oh shit they know about the plane tickets, but nope.

    The fbi arent listening in on their home after they search it? The fbi arent reading text messages. Them having keyboard sounds on etc.

    I really dont get caught up in details like that because normally i accept that its a tv show and everything wont be 100% realistic, but a lot of this just seems so fucking lazy imo.

    The story from season 1 and 2 are almost identical just with different people being an issue.

    Season 1 someone wears a wire. Season 2 someone wears a wire. Season 1 some langmores want the money. season 2 different langmores want the money. etc etc etc.

    the pilot episode of this show was fucking amazing tv but its not really been close since.
