4 episodes in and I'm extremely hooked, the guy playing pablo is fantastic but I find the editing to be odd at times.

I like the Escobar story and will check it out. I wish it was on HBO instead though. The Netflix shows I've seen so far have been pretty meh.

Watching it now. The Pablo actor is great already, even in Spanish

Little disappointed they didn't call the show Medillin though

definitely agree that they should have called it something other than narcos.

Finale was great, really looking forward to season two. It will be a bit different since they fit the first 40 years of his life into the first season but season 2 will show the final few years of his life.

I've seen the first three or four episodes and really enjoy it. The only thing I struggle with is I actually have to watch every second of the show because I need to read the subtitles.

Only through two episodes so far but it is quite good.

The guy playing Pablo is great so far and the story is interesting enough.

IMO there are some serious editing issues, and some scenes that just look very poorly produced. I am pretty sure I saw a guy wearing a Jordan brand hat. Its just a big enough overlook to take you out of the show.

Would say 7.5/10 so far. Not on the caliber of Bloodline or Peaky Blinders IMO. Still have 8 more episodes to watch though.

finished the series, good lord did the narration get old quick. he used the same cliches over and over again (shake the country to its foundation...now pay attention to this, cause this is important). so obnoxious. still a good series, but that aspect annoyed me a great deal.

Been hooked on it this week. Up to episode 9 now i believe. Its good, Pablo actor killed it earlier... not a huge fan of the last couple of episodes. Seems to become the same rehashed plot. Will finish out season one by monday. Not sure how many episodes there are this season.

mmmm not really. it's just a good show, on top of that it's pretty historically accurate. I watched the 2 and a half hour documentary on the real Pablo Escobar story, and the show follows the real story pretty well.





I finished the first season already. Good show.

Spoiler alert(kinda): It won't go more than 2 seasons. The show ends in 1989 and he dies in 1993. They covered the majority of all the important events in the first season. There won't be much left story to tell from where it leaves off unless they do a spin off.
