OZARK SEASON 4 REVIEW
It’s time for one last boat ride through the manmade Lake of the Redneck Riviera. For three seasons, we’ve traveled deeper and deeper into the world of money laundering, heroine, psychopathic drug bosses, Mexican drug cartels, and under the table FBI deals with Marty and Wendy Byrde (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney), with their teenage kids Charlotte and Jonah (Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner) in tow. Season four sees the wheeling and dealing of Marty and Wendy trying as always to schmooze their way out of being brutally murdered by the cartel or taken to prison for the rest of their lives by the US government. Meanwhile, Ruth Langmore, (Julia Garner) continues to have one of the most gloriously foul mouths in TV history while attempting to build her own empire. How does Ozark compare to other classic crime series, such as Breaking Bad and The Sopranos? Drew, Wright, TC, and Melina share their feelings on every bump in the road of this American crime story, discussing the final season spoiler free, as well as the series as a whole, before opening up the floor to a brief no holds bar spoiler chat.

His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’.

Currently a regular contributor to the Dread Central Network, he’s excited to join up with some old friends and other film fans on One of Us as a new contributor to Screener Squad.
Melina Eames (Screener Squad)
Melina first discovered that she carried the nerd gene at the tender age of four following her exposure to a little film called A New Hope. In the twenty-some years that followed, Melina continued to grow into her geek identity through the discovery of Batman, Mst3k, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and The Mandalorian. But perhaps her most significant discovery came at the age of fourteen when a night of YouTube mining led her to the review site of Spill.com. Melina became a devoted follower whose fandom did not end with the site’s demise. By then, it had worked its dark magic and left her with a love and appreciation for film criticism that she has yet to shrug.
