The thing about Ozark is that, although it is a fictional drama, I would imagine that somebody randomly showing up to a tourist haven with a ton of money to launder would run into the same types of problems that Marty ended up facing. Namely, issues with local competition, the mob, and the FBI hot on his trail.

Breaking Bad, although it was a fantastic story, reaaaalllly pushed the limits on reality vs fiction. Walter was in no way an accurate representation of how a brilliant chemist would go about things if he had to get into the meth game, and the DEA would realistically have had him on their radar much sooner than depicted in the series.

In terms of good people getting their hands in the mud because they have to survive, yeah I get that their is a similarity there, but there's not much for a comparison beyond that IMO. They are both great slow burners though.

I'm through S3 E3, about to bail on the series. Does it get better this season?

The whole goofy hippy brother thing bothers me. And each episode is some type of scavenger hunt or "do this for me" thing. It's like a GTA video game.

The brother issue was inevitable seeing as how "Marty just can't catch a break" is a dominant theme in this series, and don't act like you ain't got a crazy sibling or in-law that's always just fuckin your shit up.

We finally got around to binging through Season 3. I couldn't get into it at first, but it grew on me as it progressed, and I enjoyed it for the most part. But there was just something about it that kept me from really liking it. It just had too many things that were too unbelievable. Not to be lazy.... but compared to Breaking Bad: BB had a lot of unbelievable things in it, but it just seemed to be done in a way that made them more believable. Not sure how to describe it, but there just seemed to be something off about it.

But I am looking forward to Season 4.

(and people think Ruth is hot??)

I've always felt like, even though I really enjoy the show, the events were always just entirely too unlikely to happen. I think what did it for me was when they moved the bodies that were buried under the poppy field in one of the previous seasons. They moved the bodies to their family graveyard, and nobody in law enforcement decided to do DNA testing.

Still really liked the show.
