Critics Consensus

Ozark hasn't yet reached the same level as the classic crime dramas to which it will inevitably be compared, but its satisfyingly complex plot - and a gripping performance from Jason Bateman - suggest greater potential.

Critic Reviews for Ozark Season 1

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (34)

Dubuque quickly gives us a strong ensemble of city folk and hicks, innocents and thugs. The overall vibe of the show is suspenseful, but there are small pockets of comedy usually found in the behavior of the locals.

Netflix has yet another unique player in its assembly line of original series.

Now that's how you make a thriller.

Jul 21, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Ozark has the potential to be many interesting things, and the fact that it commits to none of them feels like overextension.

Jul 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Bateman strikes the right mixture of guilt, terror and glib intelligence to make us reluctantly root for him.

Jul 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A lot of this would play more thrillingly if the characters didn't seem as wooden; if the series felt like it was written to serve more than just a need to present power plays.

Jul 21, 2017 | Full Review…

What makes Ozark a quality production is the drawings that are presented in the introduction of the series and that vary in each episode, giving us clues about what we are going to see during the next hour. [Full Review in Spanish]

Ozark, the craziest show on television...

Over the course of the season, things went from bad to worse and then worse again...

Whilst Ozark does at times take the platform format for granted... it offers an intriguing narrative that expertly intertwines the lives of numerous characters.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a fun show that almost relishes its familiarity. Like a comfy chair, you can sink into the comfort here watch a few episodes without thinking too much.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Just when you think it can't get any darker or disturbing, Ozark rips the rug from underneath you.

Audience Reviews for Ozark: Season 1

  • May 02, 2021
    One of the best shows I have ever seen!! I have watched all three seasons twice now, even on second viewing, it gets me. I will spend my day thinking about that the Byrdes are going to do next to solve their problems! The suspense and just pure stress of watching it, is totally worth it!Bateman knocks it out the park, making us sympathise and even like, his stiff and miserable character! Not to mention his directing skills! Julia Garner is also a star, making Ruth one of the most enjoyable characters to watch! Could not recommend this show more, cannot wait until season four!

    This is one of those shows that leaves you wanting more. I was completely hooked by the third episode. Wish someone had told me about it sooner.

    Switched off after 5 minutes and watched the rest for the sake of it. Good actors but greatly lacking. Sorry and miss for me.

    I gave this show 2 season of a chance but never liked it.

    Often compared to Breaking Bad for it's similar ‘good guy turns bad' plot. Ozark is a dark, desperate, slow burn series. It takes a while to enjoy this series, but once you're there, you'll realize how complex, well-crafted, and clever this series is. Outstanding acting by almost everyone, especially Julia Garner. Season 3 is the real masterpiece | follow us at @uncle.review

    Not sure why anyone would rate this show anything less than 5 stars. It is AWESOME.
