    Just about all the choices are bad in this season of Ozark, making this season your best Labor Day weekend binge.

    The show’s writing is sharp and smart; its acting is clever and curt. Toss in that casino wild card and you’ve got a season that’s just as remarkable as the first.

    The echoes of "Breaking Bad" have grown louder in Ozark...While by no means a great show, the intense second season cements its status as an eminently binge-worthy one.

    Season 2 lacks urgency beside the basic danger of the Byrdes’ continuing their work in order to escape it, and glimpses inside Marty and Wendy’s moral outlooks aren’t compelling enough to make up for the lack of action.

    Ozark Season 2 isn’t great, but it is Good. Netflix’s engaging, popular series has some issues it needs to resolve.

    The show’s second season provides little thrill of discovery, no amplification of what themes it possesses, and barely any real movement outside the hermetic world the Byrdes share.

    The second season of Ozark, however, is a 10-episode slog of grinding narrative gears, ominous pronouncements about consequences, affectless violence and a monochromatic aesthetic that left me giggling at its miserable pretensions.

The characters are more fleshed out and every one of them has a moment to shine. The writers made some real efforts to paint three-dimensional scenarios around three dimensional characters and it works very well. This is an excellent follow-up to season 1 and well worth your time. Expand

The negative critic reviews are nothing but elitist diaper wipes for whiners who have Breaking Bad so far up on a pedestal that anything that doesn't offer a bleeding sacrifice to Vince Gilligan's golden calf of melted Emmy awards is considered blasphemy. Personally, I would rather take Ozark with it's flaws and enjoy a ride that gets me somewhere fast instead of spending 4 years lauding Vince Gilligan's magnificence for stagnant cinematic masturbation on episodes and seasons of Better Call Saul that go nowhere at the speed of tar.
