The Punisher Season 1 Review:
Be warned of spoilers ahead …
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. I ended up finishing the rest of the 10 episode season in less than a week.
Ozark hits the mark on what you’d expect from a crime thriller. One lie can cost you everything. And one lie can lead to another and then another. Jason Bateman plays Marty Byrde, a Chicago-based financial adviser who must save his and his family’s lives by moving to Lake Ozark and launder $500 million dollars in 5 years. Where some crime stories are about a heist or stealing money, Byrde must spend cold hard cash by the barrel full.
