Critic 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.

News & Interviews for Ozark: Season 1
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.
Bateman, better known for comedies such as Arrested Development, unleashes a frank blue stare that could mean anything from menace to guile to idiocy. His lack of readability keeps things fresh and unpredictable as nasty shocks unfold.
Ozark has the potential to be many interesting things, and the fact that it commits to none of them feels like overextension.
