For many people, Ozark is Netflix’s answer to AMC’s Breaking Bad but we can’t mess with Breaking Bad fans.
Uncanny similarities between Breaking Bad and Ozark
It’s crazy, but true in some sense. A decade later, Ozark is walking the path of Breaking Bad. Walter White from Breaking Bad and Marty Byrde from Ozark are both disciplined family man who end up getting involved in drugs trading. Both are doing it for their family.
Both shows cover some exotic location usually not depicted on Television- Albuquerque for Breaking Bad and Ozark in Missouri region. Breaking Bad made use of point-of-view shots while Ozark captures the beauty of mountains through drone shots. The similarities are uncanny that some say Ozark is “Breaking Bad in the mountains”.
However, it is not all true. Walter White and Marty Byrde are different. Marty already broke bad when viewers met him on the 1st episode. He was already involved in money laundering. Walter White, however, was a pathetic chemistry teacher and viewers saw his transformation as drug kingpin from a simple teacher.
Breaking Bad was about keeping secrets from the family but on Ozark, Marty doesn’t need to hide anything from his family. His wife knows about his activities from Day 1 and his children get to know about it few episodes later.
Is Ozark Netflix’s answer to TV’s Breaking Bad?
On Reddit discussion over Breaking Bad vs Ozark, one user named miscpostman wrote—
“Ozark copies BB’s character archetypes but misses the mark on how they were masterfully implemented in BB [Breaking Bad].”
To which another user named Casey replied—
“Yeah. Ozark is like a sloppier, less tightly written, less believable, and more boring overall than Breaking Bad. And it’s only through two seasons, with the second declining in quality already. Also, Ozark wouldn’t even exist without Breaking Bad, and it borrows much of its makeup from BB.”
If we go by the viewer reviews, Breaking Bad certainly is the winner. Ozark tries hard to beat Breaking Bad but there is a long way to go for them to come close to Breaking Bad.
However, the makers are sharpening their tools to bring an outstanding Season 4 of Ozark that will shut down the mouths of Breaking Bad fans forever.
Attention Breaking Bad fans! Ozark to turn the tables on season 4
Netflix original American Drug Crime thriller series, Ozark has run for 2 seasons and 10-episode set 3rd season will release on 27th March 2020. Coronavirus does not affect the release date of Ozark season 3. The makers of the show have planned the show for 5 seasons but there is no official announcement on the renewal of season 4.
But considering the popularity of the show, it is not far-fetched to claim that season 4 of Ozark will happen soon. But nothing can be said on the release dates of Ozark season 4 since the show is not yet renewed and the productions around the world are halted due to Coronavirus pandemic. But it is clear from the makers’ side that that season 4 will be sharper and edgier than previous seasons of Ozark and will surely challenge the popularity of Breaking Bad.
Well, it is left to be seen who wins the battle only after season 4 of Ozark graces the screens. Till then, Breaking Bad will remain the best TV show ever made.
