Good, arguably the show should have ended in Season 2, story wise. Hopefully they wrap it up nicely.

Not familiar with it either but the thought of hillbillies just made me think of that Patrick Swayze move...Next of Kin. Crazy for Swayze!

I think you'd really like Ozark. It has a lot of similarities to Breaking Bad but it's also definitely its own thing as well.
... though I did search your history for "breaking bad" and you've got one post implying you watched a lot of it... and another implying you watched none of it... so who knows lol

Happy about that. Ozark is great and all great things must come to an end (or stop being great).

I also think that going into a season knowing it is final is a good idea. It opens up design space as well as setting expectations.

Fantastic news that the final season will be 14 episodes. Some shows taper down episode count towards the end, which leads to "action packed" but ultimately unsatisfying episodes, as exemplified (in my oppinion) by game of thrones last seasons.

I haven't watched this (don't know if I will) but I'll put in a word for limiting the number of seasons in a show, having a satisfying arc, and finishing with an actual ending. I quit Lost after S2, because all the mysteries got tiring, and there were 4 more seasons to go. And I blamed Lindelof for that. But Lindelof is saying that he only saw a 3 season arc, but was pushed to do 10 (!!) seasons.

There were all of these compelling mysteries and so we were saying, ‘We wanna have this stuff answered by the end of season one, this stuff answered by the end of season two, and then the show basically ends after about three years,’” Lindelof said. “That was the initial pitch, and they were not even hearing it. They looked at particularly me—Carlton [Cuse] came on about midway through season one and he joined the chorus of me—but they were just like, ‘Do you understand how hard it is to make a show that people want to watch? And people like the show? So why would we end it? You don’t end shows that people are watching.’

I might have actually watched the whole thing if it was only three seasons and the mysteries got paid off relatively quickly.
