Season 2 of Ozark was pretty good (7.5/10). Better than season 1. They definitely focused much more on the women in season 2. Charlotte is kind of meh but Wendy, Ruth, and Darlene are great. I was disappointed in the finale. Obviously we are getting a season 3.

I first heard of this show the other day. How does it compare to Justified?

Similar settings and both stories revolve around crime, but that's about the extent of it.  There are no real "good" guys in Ozark and the bad guys aren't as colorful as in Justified.  There's no Raylan-Boyd dynamic.  And Jason Bateman's character isn't really likable nor could he carry the show on his own.  In terms of entertainment - it's nowhere near as good as Justified's good seasons, but it's better than the weak ones.

Barry - 7/10 - A bit uneven and the love interest is really annoying, but it can be very, very funny at times.

Maniac - 7/10 - Very entertaining but a little weak on storyline and character development.

The Romanoffs is disappointing.  Entertaining and very well shot, but ultimately a bit bloated.  The first episode has been the best so far.

Homecoming is pretty good, but Bobby Cannavale has yet to meet a role he couldn't destroy with his patented overacting.  He is less awful than he was in Vinyl, but I can't grasp how this guy continues to land big roles.

IMO Bobby does a fantastic reading of Chapter 13 in the Beastie Boys audio book
delivers it like a beat poet with a thick accent

it's hard to over-act on audio only.

But I bet you can feel him gesticulating madly behind the mic.

I'd almost be disappointed if he wasn't.

I will always know him as the guy with the funky tasting spunk (their words, not mine) on Sex and the City.

Did like him in Boardwalk Empire though.

I listened to the podcast, but haven't gotten into the show yet. Kinda pissed Catherine Keener isn't in the main role...
