Netflix announces the Jason Bateman , Laura Linney show “Ozark” will return for a 2nd season.

Good news. Good show.

Finished the Netflix show “Atypical” earlier.

Put it on last night, because I like Michael Rapaport and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It was a different show, centered around their highly functional autistic son. A lot of story lines in play, and quite a few lies that get tangled up.

I forgot to add this when I finished it. “Ozark”, a Jason Bateman and Laura Linney show on Netflix was a very good show. 

Bateman, is a money launderer for a Mexican drug cartel whose partner is involved in a little skimming off the top.  To save his own life and the life of his family, Bateman sells the cartel rep, portrayed by

Esai Morales, on his ability to launder even more money by moving to the Ozarks in Missouri which isn’t exactly a target of the FBI & DEA and other alphabet agencies. 

One problem was that Bateman was already a target of the FBI since his partner was already cooperating with them. Once he’s there he encountered some small town politics and a local drug-kingpin that he kept crossing paths with.

Solid cast/story line and the little boy played the role of “creepy bat shit crazy kid” really well. 

I enjoyed it and looking forward to an announcement from Netflix about season 2. 

Seeing the lake/area, makes you want to live there. 

Last night, I watched the documentary  called “Runnin’ Down a Dream” about Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on Netflix. I’ve seen it before and wanted to watch it again to see if it helped with my question to see if Tom Petty singing Johnny Cash’s “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town”, is simply a figment of my imagination. 

The quest continues because it wasn’t inside this documentary. 

Over the weekend, I watched the Netflix show. “Friends From College”.  It was content.   Nothing jumped out as earth shattering funny, or some crazy story line that hasn’t been shown before. 

I was expecting it to be a but funnier than it was. 

Oh well.

Over the weekend, I finished off the 4th season of Marc Maron’s show “Maron” on Netflix. 

I didn’t like it as much as the first three simply because it was so negative. Rehab + losing your house + animals (temporarily), just too much negativity. 

It improved as it went on, but not as good as first three. Just too much negativity for a show. I have parts of reality for that. 

I finished the first season of Marc Maron’s show “Maron” on Netflix. It was funny. He’s funny. It has a “Curb Your Enthusiasm” vibe to it with the half reality/half fiction concept, but he’s not nearly the dick that Larry David and he’s far funnier to boot.
