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 (25)

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.

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.

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...

May 28, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

    Bateman is so impressively talented...

    Fantastic! From the first episode which should have been slow moving and expositionary, we are thrown into the deep end of the pool - from the high dive. I was stunned at the end of it. I couldn't believe how much action I had seen in one episode. I am only three episodes in, but the writing, acting and powerful storytelling remain so strong. Can't wait to see where this thing takes me.

    Season 1 is kinda mixed feeling for me. 2 first episodes are great: fast, straightforward and tense, promising a good thriller series. Then the following episodes are really boring, more like drama tv, time killing episodes, just to make sure they have 10 episodes for a season. Honestly, it will be better if they can cut it to 6 eps

    Top notch TV show. Jason Bateman proves he can handle edgy drama.

    I finished this season in two sittings. Great fun and the main character Birde is a very interesting character!
  • May 05, 2020
    Very good and would recommend.

    Never have I went into a TV show blind not knowing a single thing about it, but I must say it's the best way to go into this show. Ozark's season 1 is the perfect beginning to a show, lead by an absolutely intense performance by Jason Bateman, a man just doing what he's told to do for his family to be safe. Jason Bateman truly has an eye for directing because the episodes that he directed in this season, being the first 2 and the last 2, are my absolute favorite episodes and I hope to find him directing many more things further from Ozark in the future, he's got a true talent.

    I found this drug fueled thriller to be very interesting. I'm a big fan of Jason Bateman.
