Only watched the first episode of S3 so far, keen to power through some more.

Bateman is outstanding.

I think they killed off Buddy too soon.

Ben ruined that season for me. i didn't find him even remotely believable or relatable so it kinda ruined every scene he was in.
otherwise it was more of the same, which is a good thing.

Halfway through this season. Wasn't that excited to start it again because Ozark is kind of forgettable but it's slowly sucked me in.

I like Ben so far. It's nice to have a character around who you like for a change.

I thought up until the episode where Wendy realised she was not flavour of the month it was ho hum

The back half were way better.

Lack of commentary on the Wyatt love interest is disturbing. In real life 21 and 68. Ben was fantastic and that confrontation with Helen was excellent
And the last episode offers a good reboot for the a new season

In this climate I think it may never return and if it does maybe 2023?

I watched the first episode of season 3 and seeing as it's been so ******* long since last season I spent most of the episode trying to remember what happened but was a little uninspired - someone tell me it gets better?

It probably finishes asa 9-9.5/10 season. Episode 3 things really get going.

Watched all three seasons in about a week, great stuff. I'm a big Jason Bateman guy, and I love the Jonah character. He's going to go mad next season and I'm all for it.

From S1 I got the Breaking Bad vibe of a male power fantasy, so was kind of cautious of siding against Wendy (Skylar is really the hero on second watch of BB). At least she becomes the power figure, so it doesn't trend too closely to Fargo/BB. But wow, was Wendy right about anything this season? She fu**s up absolutely everything for Marty. Letting Ben stay, 2nd Casino, unnecessary calls to Navarro, just eveything. I just want Marty to make that deal and get out, but he got on the jet, so I guess not.

I found the storyline with Charlotte and Jonah kind of died away, which was frustrating. They both seemed deadset on getting out of there, Charlotte especially, then nothing really changes but they hang around the entire season? Their background role in S3 just didn't suit the arc from S2 at all.

I would rather more Charlotte and Jonah than Darlene.

Why do so many shows have characters that no one likes (as a person in the show) yet they get to run around without consequence? The Cartel should have got rid of her after she killed one their top dogs.

This is a really, really good show.

All the actors pull their weight, no surprise that the actor for Ben shone (he was also Ward in Iron Fist, probably the only redeeming feature of Season 1 tbh) - an accurate portrayal of what it really means to be bipolar. It's probably also a testament to the writing and acting that not a single one of them are likable but you still want to see how they try and outfox each other.

Violent yet nuanced and everyone will be talking about the ending and how it set up for S4. Very much looking forward to how it all plays out.

Yep. It's a great show man. I think this may be the last season, I'm sure Jason Bateman has other sh*t to do and how much longer can they really have this tension of 'this is it, they've f’ed up now, all over'. It's almost hard to believe they've done it so well for so long already! Great show

To be honest I find Marty's character likeable.

Got into this thread last month and I’ve enjoyed. Didn’t expect s3 to be as interesting as it was. Actor who played Ben did a great job and the Navarro character was good as well
