There's a small line of Funko Pop! figures coming soon based on Ozark. Marty, Wendy, and Ruth are getting Pop!s.
What's on your mind?
Apparently nobody uses this site. I'm used to the Game of Throne Fandom where people chat like crazy on the discussions page but idk where else to ask my questions!!
So it seems like Wendy and Ben grew up together but how did that happen when they are 18 years apart? I'm talking about the actor's ages bc they don't care enough to tell us how old the characters are. Even so, just by looking at them it's quite obvious that Wendy is much older than Ben. I think they said Wendy left home at 18. She got into a bunch of trouble and went to her pastor at 17 but she had to have graduated high school to have the career she had.
Really confused! Can anyone help?
I am so confused (and so are Reddit users) about Wendy's age. I've tried Googling it but all I get are vague non-answers or that the actor (Laura Linney) is currently 58. If she's 58, that would mean she and Ben are 20 years apart yet they kind of allude to the fact that they somehow grew up together. Also if she were 58 she would have had Jonah at age 44 which... well it's possible but not likely. And Marty said he's known Ben since he was 19. I think in season 1 Marty says to his partner that they've been married 22 years. There's some impossible math going on here. Also you have to take into account that 4 seasons took years to come out but in the show it's only been, what? 2 years? Jonah has been 14 for a very long time (he's 14 in season 2 & 3) yet his body undergoes serious changes in a few months.
I hate it when things like this don't make sense. Don't get me started on the Bryde family's eye color. If anyone knows the ages, ON THE SHOW for Wendy, Marty and Ben I would appreciate it! Thank you!!
In the US, and globally, opium products are traded under strict regulations. Morphine rich poppy straw, mostly from India, and thebaine rich poppy straw, mostly from Tazmania. There’s also codiene rich straw. Thebaine rich type is most profitable and is made into oxycodone, Oxycontin, Suboxone, and Narcan. The profit margin for these agricultural goods are low and buying it illegally doesn’t made good business sense.
Heroin is used medically in Europe but is derived from morphine rich straw. It’s not imported legally anywhere.
I find character series are getting more honest, or dishonest if you like, but with a mind to engage with gritty plots honestly rather than simplistically. It is like this to watch Ozark which repays handsomely for the engagement but I wonder in Ep8 series 1 why the contacts go back beyond the ages of the children twice (ie Charlotte is too young in the scenes for what she recollects with importance until now in the main timeline), which seems to pad too much.
If it pads out too much then the main plot is revealed as weaker by design, by lack of confidence. It really is a tough plot, but now I am padded out, spaced out, perhaps the writer found it was going too fast as undoubtably most things good do, but then that is their fate. How can the kids be so young before they move, so much was missed for this storyline that is overplays the past which has already been written differently with good characters as in fact weak with unexplained characters. Odd, just an idea for the scriptwriters really not that I can compete with such depth, just interest really.
