Probably the best Netflix series I've seen this year, and the best from Gaumont (I'm glad that they kept the same quality level from Hannibal), again shot in 4K for main photography and 8K for aerial views. From the production standpoint, it proves that José Padilha is one of the best Latin American directors & producers, as he kept most of his Brazilian film production crew, including Pedro Bromfman (his haunting music is excellent for this series). The fact that this series was mostly shot in Colombia (in some of the real locations where Escobar lived), is noteworthy, and the level of realism and fully transparent visual effects by Mr. X (via Technicolor) gives us a whole different sense of the unfolding drama. If you have seen the VFX breakdowns, you'll know that most of the streets and landscapes in this series are CGI-enhaced and extended. We all know already how this story ends in 1993, and despite this fact I'm glued to the screen in every episode. The Spanish dialogues are tweaked in a way that when translated the meaning is slightly different, so I'm pretty much sure that the whole series was written first in English. The whole cast is great, despite not many of them being Colombian (mostly Mexican, actually), and Wagner Moura's performance is spot on (probably an Emmy nomination would come his way soon) despite his very, very heavy Portuguese accent. Some parts I couldn't even figure out what he was saying, even when Spanish is my native tongue, so I kept the English CC active in every episode. Honestly, I can't wait for the second (and most likely the last) season. Their main achievement with Narcos was not glamorizing Escobar or the drug trade, but presenting a compelling, human story that everyone can relate to.

One of the best series I've watched this year.

The details of the various manipulation tactics in this story are really compelling and I imagine quite real. This is a must see. Though this a fictional account the performances and the story narration make it appear quite real and conceivable in our complex world. Well done.

can't wait for this , 9 days to go Moura

avatar

Giving it a 6/10 rating.i wish the actors had spoken more in english than spanish.it is difficult to focus on their facial expression and body language while attempting to read the subtitles quickly before they disappear.sometimes you have to go back a few seconds because you missed few words. extremely annoying.

Vai ser do Caralho esse show

This show will continue on as "Narcos: Mexico", so there won't be a fourth season per se. You'll have to add that show separately if you want to follow it.

From what I have seen from Netflix, and I have seen most of its productions, **Narcos** is still, _even after a second season_, by far the best of any of them. One can not avoid feel some weird pity for a Pablo, abandoned by everyone, [spoiler] injured to death, laying over roof full of tiles, to be finished off with an uncalled shoot to the face and used as a hunters trophy by the same fellows who would have frozen completely from fear at his sight a few years earlier. [/spoiler]

Superb. Every episode gripping right up to the last, hope they do another series on the Cali Cartel.

Have a 10/10! Enjoyed every single bit of it. Waiting in anticipation for season 2!

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
