Narcos - Netflix

Netflix is seriously on a roll. From Bloodline, to Sense8, to their newest offering, Narcos, it is quickly becoming a TV network (streaming service) to be reckoned with. Dare I say it, Netflix has completely surpassed HBO for their quality of shows (that is until 2016 when Westworld and Vinyl premiere haha). 

I just checked out the premiere of Narcos, and I have to say it is already one of my favourite shows this year. Best Neftlix premiere so far, and even with a fairly unknown cast, the acting is amazing and the story is told so well; especially with Pablo Escobar's ever expanding and confusing drug cartel universe. 

"Netflix takes on the infamous Medellín drug cartel in "Narcos," which follows the rise and fall of Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Drug Enforcement Agency agents hunting him. The story is told largely from the points of view of Escobar, played by Brazilian actor Wagner Moura, and U.S. DEA Agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), on opposite sides of what would become an all-out war. The gritty drama begins with the early days of the drug battle, when the biggest offenders were "hippies in flip-flops" caught with up to a kilo of marijuana, continuing to the violent, bloody battles between members of the cartel peddling tons of kilos of cocaine and drug agents from Colombia, Mexico, and the U.S. -- a struggle estimated to have cost at least 4,000 lives over two decades."

If you like true crime or just crime stories in general, DEFINITELY check this out!!!!

 

I heard this one wasn't that great. It wasn't bad by any means, but it apparently diluted the story and real world influences. I'll still give it a shot though, especially because Pedro Pascal Oberyn Martell is a god.

well I loved it lol it was fun, action-packed, and fast paced. The premiere almost felt like a scorsese short with the narration explaining the ins and outs of drug trafficking, the Madellin cartel, and the entire cocaine business. Plus I've heard plenty of good reviews so I don't know what you're listening too Blum 3 They said in many interviews that they had to twist a few parts of the true story to fit the storyline of the show, but that they stayed as close as possible to the main events within the timeline. Also, I love anything 80s themed, so this show is right up my alley!! haha

This is probably one of the better American renditions of Escobar's story. Although it irks me he looks nothing like him.

LMAO. Looks like I read the only two bad reviews on the internet. That's what I get for not going to my go-to websites.

Well then I'll def give it a shot!

Right, looks like a copy of the Pablo Escobar in HBO Entoruage.

Anyways, just finished episode 1 and I loved it.

"I forgot my socks" lol just finished this.

I can't wait till season 2.

Still waiting Zzzzz.

Does the amount of reading ever decrease?

this show looks so good but episode one you had to read pretty much everything that was being said..

Wait, not everything is in english?

Everything was in Spanish except the narrator pretty much. At least for the first episode. 

Ah. For some reason, that seems strange.

I'd say its more 50/50... Whenever its a scene with Pablo its in spanish, whenever its a scene with Murphy its english (for the most part), or narrated in english.

If you hate subtitles then this may not be for you, but it's really not too bad. They have to keep it at least somewhat authentic haha

Does anyone know when season 2 will happen?
