The ending of Ozark was nearly an identical ripoff to that of The Sopranos, fucking over the show’s viewers in some lame attempt to be “edgy”. What an asshole.
Can everyone admit that Jason Bateman is the asshole hack he’s rumored to be in Hollywood?

He reminds me of Chris O'Donnell, who famously gave an interview saying something ludicrous like, "Everyone used to be a stockbroker".
Maybe in the Twilight Zone, Chris.

Jason Bateman is funny and cute and relatively normal and no, the ending of Ozark is not like the Sopranos ending except (spoilers) some main characters are dead.

OP’s greatest sin isn’t even the original sin of stating how the ending goes down. He did so much worse because when given an opportunity to own that maybe he typed in haste and was a little thoughtless or inconsiderate, a chance to stay humble and admit that he might have done something tacky (though not on purpose).
OP, you need to work on your humility. I am old enough to know that I am wrong so much more than I am ever right, and I have a theory that we are all like that. Care to share your age, race, education?

I revealed the ending to the final 'Tales of the City' book a few years ago, not really thinking it was a big deal. Only one reply called me out, but I felt like crap for doing it. Never again. I haven't been able to go out alone since, but my bodyguard Stash always looks out for me.

I listened to Bateman talk about acting in an interview with Maron once, I think. It was like listening to an accountant talk about spreadsheets, literally not analogously.

I'm very VERY sorry some of you think I "spoiled" the finale. I promise I didn't, but still. I should have waited. So if you're that sensitive to such things, please forgive me for giving you anxiety and feeling like the ending of a story you're following has been ruined. I really am sorry for that.
My INTENT was to start a thread specific to Bateman himself and how I see him tin acting as if, and receiving praise for being a "brilliant" director, writer, and showrunner. He just isn't. He's smug. I've heard enough interviews with him to realize that. So much of this series mimicked The Sopranos. Not exactly but you can almost see the pacing, some scenes, etc. having come from The Sopranos. The ending itself, the story, the scenes, etc. are nothing at all like that of The Sopranos. My sentiment was that I could see him attempting to bring the same feel to how the story of these people not just ended up but would be set into the viewers' minds. Anyway, clearly, I wasn't very successful at that. So again, sorry folks. No spoilage or harm was intended and I stand rightfully corrected :-(

Jason Bateman has had one of the best second acts in Hollywood. He's had some great projects, Emmy noms and a win. Meanwhile Ricky Shroder is yelling at people outside Costco. Jason got the last laugh after Shroder's cunt mother had him written off Silver Spoons. Couldn't be happier for him.

I love Jason. Horrible childhood like all child stars .
Watch him in The Gift, on Netflix or Amazon . Brilliant . Watched movie multiple times.
Written and directed by Joel Edgerton. See Wish You Were Here, also written by Joel. One of the most overlooked and under-appreciated actor, writer, director . And very humble. Casting Jason in the Gift was brilliant

He's so naturally hysterical on Smartless, I don't really care if he's a hack. On the podcast, he's bitingly funny and often is the butt of his own jokes. (I actually was totally indifferent to him until Smartless.)
Also, ripping off The Sopranos seems damn smart to me. Ozark was a very, very entertaining show. Not to mention very well received. So he did and the creative team did something right.

I think Jason Bateman is a superb deadpan actor, having perfected the funny throwaway line delivery.
E.g., his "Yeah, that ship has sailed" in his commercial with Sean Hayes (also naturally funny).
