This dramatized take of Pablo Escobar's life is very well made with great visuals and acting. The story keeps you involved and interested throughout with the birth of the cocaine trade in Columbia and its subsequent exportation to America, and I really liked the insertion of pictures and clips from the actual events of the 1980s.

Each episode was packed with information that was easy to follow thanks to the voice-over narration from DEA agent Steve Murphey (Boyd Holbrook).

Also, whether a deal breaker or not is up to you (personally I am a fan), most of each episode is shot in Spanish.

I really dig this show. The cut ins of reality mixed with story. It is shot well and is a real story about many people not just one character with everyone else in the background. It is interesting and well done.

Just couldn't hold my interest short into season 2. Gave up making time for it,

Oh WOW! This show is SOOOOOO good. I am finally watching this one month after it was released and it is excellent. The story of Pablo Escobar has been told many times because it is such a fascinating yet equally horrible story and Netflix did a great job from the very high production quality to the blending of real life documentary footage. There seems to be only one complaint from Colombians regarding the accents being off, but I'm not Colombian, so for me the complaint about the accents doesn't bother me, though it would if I were able to discern regional Spanish accents. If you haven't watched this yet, what are you waiting for?
I'm very interested to see Season 2, because the series has progressed quite quickly and if you know the real life history, they have already told so much of the story that I fear Season 2 won't be as good if they try to artificially prolong it with too much fictionalized drama instead of leaning more on historical accuracy because so far the truth of the story is the more compelling part. What a horrible man.

I really like this show, but Spanish-speakers know the (Brazilian) lead actor's accent is wack. Beyond that, it's a truly crazy tale that prompted me to take many Wikipedia breaks while binge-watching.

Helluva thing to watch a show that I was part of the manhunt of Pablo Escobar. Came out of it with a few scars to remember to this day.

Narcos is a Netflix show detailing the world of the Colombian cartel's hay day. While it succeeds in being entertaining, the ever present sex and drugs of the series is often rather gratuitous. If you don't mind your shows a bit edgier and sexier give Narcos a shot (or snort)

Really recommend this amazing show!!! And the good thing is that it was released on Netflix, 'cause soon as you see the 1st episode you will binge it :D
Really enjoyed the mix between real footage/events with the show itself, and every now and then, you will surprised of how things were!
If you can, watch it! ;)

p.s: really loved the review where the show rating was cut, only because someone needs to wear glasses! LoooL made my day :D

S01 - 5 Stars
S02 - 4.5 Stars
S03 - 3 Stars

Narcos is a beautiful and brutal historical period piece about one the the most notorious men to has ever lived in the drug business; Pablo Escabar. The show is well written, well cast and keeps you on the edge of your seat (I fell off it a couple of times). The show is authentic, touches the heart and stimulates the senses. I recommend delving into this show!

***Disclaimer: The show is mostly subtitles, more than 50% is filmed in Spanish.
