Ozark in the Media

Recommended Posts


I'm excited to see a show set in the Ozarks. However... It was primarily filmed in Georgia. I understand why shows film in other locations for budget reasons, but when the actual name of the show is Ozark couldn't you find some way to film there?

Well this here well-educated, progressive Ozarkian is dagburned disappointed to see this is just another drug-syndicate drama, firstly, and secondly, that it stars Jason Bateman, one of the most horrid actors of his generation, whose "strength" seems to be picking horrid projects.

FWIW, I don't know where Ang Lee filmed Ride with the Devil, a film backdropped against the Civil War skirmishes between eastern Kansans and western Missourians, but there were a lot of outdoor scenes portrayed accurately.  Depending on where they go, Georgia may be too "mountain-y" for the Ozarks.

Ozarks are probably the closest place to Chicago that is so out of the way no one could find a person? 

We used to go there when I was little. We lived in St Louis. 

Albuquerque didn't suffer from Breaking Bad. 

I think Bateman's good with the right material.   Do agree that he's picked a lot of bad movies. Just watched the end of The Gift.  Yuk.

Was bored the other night and decided to watch 'The Other Woman' on Netflix. I wouldn't recommend the movie but turned out the 8 year old boy in it was played by Charlie Tahan (Wyatt Langmore). I had never seen him before Ozark, he was really good in the movie but his character was annoying AF (I have a low tolerance for bratty/know it all kids).

The Ending of Ozark Explained. Though I don't know that we needed it to be explained, but it's very pro-Wendy which I like.

Silly video about Ozark slang - 

I have to take issue with their spelling of smidgin.  An apostrophe on the end gives the impression that it's a verb with the g dropped. Smidgin is a noun, yo.

I grew up in Southeast Missouri, but I didn't learn to call the shopping cart a buggy until I moved to the Memphis area. I hear it down here in Alabama, too, and I kind of love it.

Julia Garner at the Met Gala! She was part of the Posen posse this year (Zac Posen created 3D printed pieces for five actresses/models). Julia's 3D pieces was the headpiece.

I bring this news to your attention not to stir up political debate, but because I wonder what would happen to the show, which is filmed largely in The Peach State.  Does JB have enough clout to have production relocated?

Ozark won two Emmy awards tonight!

  • Directing for a Drama Series - Jason Bateman

  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series - Julia Garner

Well deserved. I can't remember which episode Jason won for directing, but Ruth IMO was the best character in season 2. Yes, she was well-written and complex, but Julia Garner gave life to the words on the page.

Does anyone know when the new season will begin?

Still no date announced, although Jason Bateman has teased some of the plotlines for S3.  

Congrats to Julia Garner.  Her character went from one I hated in S1 to one I actually admired in S2.

Finally a season 3 trailer!   

It's been so long between seasons I will have to watch the S2 finale to remember where the hell I left off.  🙂

The show has been #1 or #2 on Netflix top 10 for a while now, should be renewed unless the leads don't want to do another season.

Bateman does a longer interview on The Bill Simmons podcast 5/29/90.

Talks about the Ozark production company bringing him The Outsider, asking him if he wanted to try to do both that show and season 3 of Ozark.

Said he executive produced meaning he hired producers, made casting decisions and directed the first two episodes and handed off some duties to a producer he knew from Ozark.
