Netflix’s crime thriller ‘Ozark’ goes to town on dirty money

The positive buzz for Netflix series Ozark piqued my interest. I’m in the middle of catching up on The Sopranos so I wasn’t necessarily looking for another crime and family centric drama. But after checking out the pilot to see if it would be something I’d like I became addicted. The pilot is very good, one of the best pilots I’ve seen in a while.

“One death should be enough for this audience and one death will definitely have the affect that we’re looking for. It will certainly set the stage for a very exciting season.”
