Marty’s fatherly advice, on the other hand, is both jarring and a welcome addition to the anti-hero trappings. “Ozark’s” delicacy makes it one of Netflix’s better original shows. “I don’t expect you to forgive me, but I am trying to make everything right,” Marty tells Charlotte later. It’s the kind of tender moment you might find in a Lifetime movie, not a coal-black Netflix drama.Bateman is already talking about plans for season two.
Like Bryan Cranston’s iconic series, Ozark follows a father-of-two who finds himself immersed in the criminal underworld.
Marty Bryde is a financial advisor who lives a seemingly normal existence in Chicago, until he tells his wife that he has been laundering money for a Mexican drug lord for years.
He’s a devoted dad who happens to be playing a deadly cat and mouse game with a drug kingpin. Later, vultures circle the Byrdes’ new home, a creepy visual and blunt metaphor.
The expected fireworks light up “Ozark” from the opening sequence. In between, Marty and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) dole out heartfelt lessons to their teen children.
He understands why his character can’t be immoral to the core.
