Welcome To the Party Pal meticulously explores the ins-and-outs of Nexflix’s fascinating money-laundering drama Ozark, the crime drama series created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. The series stars Jason Bateman and the multi-talented Laura Linney as the Byrds, a married Chicago couple forced to relocate their family to the Ozarks following a money laundering scheme gone wrong. Ozark has garnered fourteen Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, with Bateman winning for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, and Julia Garner winning Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, both in 2019. In addition, Bateman has received two Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actor – Television Series Drama.
In this episode, hosts Michael Shields and Chris Thompson delve into Ozark’s latest season, a tense and riveting ten episode offering that finds the entire Byrd family up against the wall like never before. Hailing the brilliant acting across the series (particularly Laura Linney as Wendy Byrd and Julia Gardner as the fiery Ruth Langmore), the panic inducing plot lines, and the parallels to previous anti-hero shows of the past decade (Breaking Bad, anyone?), WTTPP’s latest is one part a celebration of the show’s successes, and one part a deep dive into the themes and parables present in Season Three.
