The Nose On 'Ozark' And Sam Shepard

Aug 4, 2017

Netflix has marketed its new series "Ozark" as " 'Breaking Bad' plus Jason Bateman," which might make you picture... a funnier version of "Breaking Bad"? "Ozark" is not a funnier version of "Breaking Bad." If anything, it's a bleaker version of "Breaking Bad." And maybe even a more bingeable version of "Breaking Bad"? The Nose might just have an answer to that question.

And then: Sam Shepard starred in movies like The Right Stuff and Days of Heaven and Black Hawk Down. He wrote and directed dozens of plays, winning a record-setting ten Obie awards and the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Buried Child. News of Shepard's death broke on Sunday. He was 73.
