Review: Ozark Season 1 Episode 2 “Blue Cat”

The central turning point of this episode is rather predictable, although one may argue, purposefully so. Bateman, both as a director and as the actor, provides a stirring performance in creating false tension, release and terror. It almost reflects the tone of the episode as a whole, where Marty remains on the surface, slowing being pushed below but always somehow catching a breath. His insight into the human reasoning is still limited, though this episode provides some evidence that the show’s ultimate focus will remain on how he expands outside of his current middle-class, economic lifestyle and embrace others. Alternatively, I am not so keen on the police sub-plot, for the fact that it feels generic and simply is such a cliché that it may dampen pace and tension. 8.5/10
