It's brilliant, I'm only on Ep2 of new series so not gonna venture in here much. It's pretty rough as far as TV drama goes these days but it really suits it. Not sure if that's accidental or not. Acting is bloody excellent and everything really. A cut above a lot of the stuff around the now.

Finished it today. First episode was great, slowed down a bit in episodes 3 and 4 but it picked up after that. The last two episodes were really good, even if it had the feeling of things being inevitable. Not sure I'm excited about the next season seeing as the characters left are IMO quite boring.

I wonder how much of Pablo's money is still stashed or buried away. He obviously lost loads fighting and losing out to the other Cartel, but surely he couldn't have went through all of it. The guy was a billionaire.

"Pablo was earning so much that each year we would write off 10% of the money because the rats would eat it in storage or it would be damaged by water or lost," Escobar wrote. That would be about $2.1 billion, given how much money he was reportedly making.

Hilarious read.

Quote
“First of all, this man is Brazilian and not Colombian,” said Escobar. “Tell me about this man, what has he done? Does he have any real experience in acting? Does he have any real experience in making cocaine transactions? Has he laundered billions of dollars? Or is he sucking on his thumb and drinking his mother’s breast milk to this date? I believe it is the latter.”

He concluded: “Ask him for me, if he enjoys the milk. I don’t drink milk.”

Shitey newspaper but good read.

Some of the inaccuracies do seem intriguingly weird in the show.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/09/09/pablo-escobars-son-criticises-netflix-series-narcos-for-insultin/

Shitey newspaper but good read.

What I don't get is that he mentions several characters:

Quote
Escobar did not personally kill Colonel Carrillo as he is called on the show. He attacked many policemen and killed over 500 one month in Medellin in the late 1980s, but not Carrillo. He added he was not proud of the violence of his father and recognised he did a lot of harm to the police while he also gave a lot of money.

Quote
The story of Leon in Miami depicted on the series is a lie- he did not live in the US and was loyal and valiant in his service to Escobar. He died after being captured and tortured by the Castanos.

and makes it seem like these were real people, when I'm fairly certain they're fictitious.

Aye, definitely feels like he's missed the point of artistic license.  It states it at the start essentially.  Some changes are odd still, but he was a kid at the time, what does he really know.

If Escobar was as much of a family man as we are led to believe then you'd have to expect his son would not have known so much about his real goings on surely?

Maybe I'm wrong, could've sworn I just read that El Leon was fictitious. And that Colonel Carrillo was based loosely on Hugo Martinez, who was also portrayed in the show (for the sake of TV, it makes sense to introduce a strong protagonist character who can be offed...wouldn't have made sense for them to kill off the Col. Martinez character when the real guy is alive and well :lol: )

Regardless the show is a dramatic re-telling of the time, which it states at the very beginning of each episode. Clearly they've taken quite a few liberties, but I do think they've done an outstanding job portraying the setting, showing Colombia in the 80s for how it really was. Friend of mine's father is a journalist for the CS Monitor, was a Latin America correspondent at the time and he swears on the authenticity of the show, in the sense that everything really looked and felt as the show portrays.

I've seen rumours that Leon was meant to be George Jung (Depp's character), but can't really be the case.  Jung was real, though.  Jung's partner-come-enemy in Blow is Carlos Lehder in Narcos, albeit cast as a different name.  He's not in Narcos at all, nor referenced.

Pablo was elected to Congress in 1982.  He escaped from La Catedral in 1992.  At this point, Murphy has been in Colombia for at least a decade, so why can't he speak Spanish?

At first, I wasn't that into this season, but it picked up brilliantly.  The biggest mistake they made was way back at season 1, episode 1.  They don't go into enough detail, take a slowered panned out vision of it all.  It's too frenetic.  It's still great, but we're missing out on some good characters.  We're nearly like 15-20 years on and barely any c*** has aged, including Pena.

Finished season 2.  Was alright, but a bit overhyped.  Didn't like the pacing much, it rushed his rise to power then dragged out the manhunt for too long.  Just felt like it was the same thing over and over:  DEA get a tip, check it out, don't get their man, repeat.

How good was Wagner Moura's performance?

Not a rhetorical question.  I thought he was excellent, but I don't know enough Spanish to judge.  I heard he didn't start learning it until about 3 months beforehand, so it could be Portuguese for all I know, or the Spanish equivalent of Charlie Hunnam in Green Street.

From what I read it was a bit off to begin with, but got better.  He knew Spanish from years back, but had not used it in those years, so took a little time to get back to 'normal'.

They'll have to hold back when diving into Los Zetas' involvement & antics.

Will be interesting to see how they depict the death of the DEA bloke who was captured, tortured for a couple of days and ultimately killed (if the story is the told). I imagine this would be covered because it was a pivotal moment in the US governments war against the cartels.

Yeah I enjoyed the season overall and it made sense to make it given the characters involvement in the Pablo stuff but I'm firmly looking forward to the Mexico s***, that's surely going to be mental.

They'll have to hold back when diving into Los Zetas' involvement & antics.

Will be interesting to see how they depict the death of the DEA bloke who was captured, tortured for a couple of days and ultimately killed (if the story is the told). I imagine this would be covered because it was a pivotal moment in the US governments war against the cartels.

Kiki?  Was he not mentioned in season one?

Yeah, that's the guy. Interested to see if the show jumps back into that particular timeline. I'll have to rewatch parts of S:1 and catch the reference.

Haven't started watching season 2. Partly due to a lack of time, and I read the book "Killing Pablo" years ago, and that offered quite a comprehensive rundown of the hunt for, Cali's involvement, and ultimately his death.

Unrelated to Narcos, and fictional of course, but a prequel to Sicario is in the works. It might cover Benicio del Toro's character's origins, which the CIA spook touched on. Looking forward to it.

Sicario was great. 

Regarding Kiki, it was just a mention after Murphy's cat gets strung up.  Pena says to him, he's safe 'since Kiki' then it runs through a cutscene of all that happened to him and the response from the US.  It was certainly mentioned in a way that suggests it was an event that had happened by then, which would have put it around the mid 80s.  I'd have thought that might not be picked up on at all in season 3?  :dontknow:

Finished watching S3 last night after reading reviews. Wasn't going to bother initially, so glad I did though. Really, really good; probably the best of the 3 for me even if the characters maybe weren't as strong as the Medellin lot.

I can't pick a favourite, but I'd say the third was the worst of the lot.  And that isn't meant as a dig at all.  It felt rushed, almost like a one-season spin off from Pablo et all.  Was still great and enjoyable, but lacked depth and far too frenetic, that could be said of the whole thing mind.  They wasted the Pablo years.

I've really enjoyed all three seasons but I'd agree that they wasted the Pablo opportunity. I guess they never imagined it would be the success it was.

I dunno how they could've "wasted" the Pablo story, they devoted two full seasons to it. If anything, the Cali story, about a cartel that dwarfed Pablo's, felt rushed in comparison.

Spent 6 weeks in Colombia this summer actually, 3 weeks learning Spanish in Medellin. It is really incredible to think how safe the place seems yet literally 15 years ago it was one of the most dangerous places on the planet, genuinely being bombed and shootings every week. I felt perfectly safe walking around on my own in the evenings in the touristy parts anyway. There are barrios that were incredibly dangerous but regeneration and infrastructure development has transformed it.

Its an incredibly beautiful place Colombia- highly recommended to anyone planning a visit!

For what its worth, they absolute hate Narcos out there- think it misses out a lot of the reality of the story and glamorises Pablo Escobar and the cartels. There is a lot of tourism springing in off the back of the likes of Narcos- not all of it good- and unfortunately many backpackers go there and dont appreciate the sensitivity.

It certainly made it look like he'd be carried over.  In fact was one of the only things that kept me positive.  I'm sure they'll do fine without him, and at least there's no Murphy. :aww:

I've just had a quick read up (I've missed all the announcements, apparently it was known months ago Pascal wouldn't be staring). Apparently it goes back in time from the end of Narcos Season 3 (1970s to 1980s) so it makes sense for him not to be in it. I see Netflix are calling it 'Narcos: Mexico' Season 1.
