Hours spent watching Ozark: 15 & counting
The Hours spent drooling over Jason Bateman: Countless
Hours spent writing: 5
I watched Ozark for 10 hours straight when it was released and I’m now finding myself watching it all over again with a friend of mine – I absolutely love it. Truth be told I will probably find myself rewatching it sometime before Netflix releases the second season anyway. That’s one of the few flaws I find when binge watching a show on Netflix – waiting for more episodes. Drives me crazy.
Now there are many men in my life that I love dearly. But there is one man in particular that I just adore, that is Mr. Jason Bateman. I just can’t get enough of him. Every time I see Jason on my tv I stop whatever I’m doing. I get sucked right in – every time. There isn’t anything about this man that I don’t love. Well, that is, as far as my television will let me. I think he’s absolutely perfect.
Ozark is probably my favorite thus far for a variety of reasons one being that he is the director. I see so much of Jason’s personality in his character Marty Bird, more than I’ve seen of him in his past work. Marty is the kind of character that Jason is used to playing. That typical sarcastic asshole. Which is way different than his character in Arrested Development.
For those of you who haven’t watched Ozark yet, the series is about a guy named Marty Bird who is a quote on quote financial planner in a drug cartel. He moves his family from Chicago to the Missouri, Ozarks (A.K.A the middle of nowhere). After his money laundering scheme goes wrong, he and his wife Wendy along with their two kids pack up and head for the Ozarks where he plans to make his wrongs right. The second reason I love the show is that my mother is from Missouri not too far from the Ozarks. So it’s interesting for me to see it.
The friend I’m rewatching it with he and I decided this will be our thing. So when season two comes out we can only watch it together. He has a very strong personality similar to mine and it’s funny to see us watching it together. I’m over here blushing and drooling at the sight of Jason Bateman and he’s next to me, getting mad about all the horrible things that Wendy does. I can’t tell you too much because that would spoil it and you have to watch it. So let’s just say that she isn’t the worlds greatest wife.
If there are more Jason Bateman fans out there, (I know there are) watching this show is a must. And if you watch it share your thoughts with me. I will spend my Saturday watching the last six episodes of season neglecting to do anything productive. What will you be doing?
