The early days of the coronavirus global pandemic where anxiety is exponentially heightened is probably not the best time to begin watching Ozark.
It's a Netflix series about a married couple, played by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, who find themselves caught in a bungled money laundering scheme and have to relocate their family to the Ozarks.
Highly stylised production values, great performances and a script with incredible twists and turns reminscient of the style of Breaking Bad, Ozark is difficult not to binge once you start.
The characters are complex and they grow with each otuch situation they face. At times the vio;lence isn't easy to watch, but it's there to remind you that the people the family are dealing with arent to be messed with.
While super duper late to the Ozark movement, I quickly caught on why it bagged a swag of nominations at last year's Emmy's and the hype was large following the release of the third season - which ends with a bang.
So yes, I binged the entire series at the height of the lockdown. I wouldn't recommend that approach to the faint hearted, but heck, once the train left the station, it couldn't be stopped.
Ozark has been renewed for its fourth and final season and I wait with baited breath.
It will have you on the edge of your seat.
