Ozark Part 1 begins this weekend with seven episodes you can binge watch on Netflix beginning Friday, January 21st. I’m not going to miss this!
When we last saw Marty and Wendy Byrde (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) their mob attorney, Helen, played by Janet McTeer, had been brutally murdered. The Byrdes were at a crossroads with their Mexican drug king pin and their pregnant FBI agent. Their kids, now 17 and 14, were wise to their money laundering operation out of a casino in the Ozarks. Wendy’s brother, Ben, played by Tom Pelphrey, was dead because they killed and incinerated him like Toby toward the end of “Sweeney Todd.” Ruth, Tom’s girlfriend, and the Byrds’ right hand girl, Julia Garner, had had it with them, which wasn’t good.
