My tv watching these days tends to exist only for about 40 minutes, right before I go to sleep. With Seb still sleeping in our room, it is mostly on my ipad, either on netflix or amazon prime.

This week I have been addicted to Ozark, the new series that premiered on Netflix. Apparently, it’s in a similar vein to Breaking Bad, though having not seen much of that, I can’t say.

The premise sees a Chicago-based financial advisor secretly relocate his family to the Missouri Ozarks when his dealings with a drug cartel go awry.

The show is dark, sometimes violent and quite ‘wordy’ in parts, but it builds and builds over the 10 episodes, with a few surprise turns along the way.

Jason Bateman, who I know mostly from comedic roles, is great in the main role.

Anyway, this is not a review, just a recommendation to check it out if you have netflix, it’s one of the better shows I have seen this year.
