Trying to avoid spoilers but has the guy who plays Chepe been in anything else I'd have seen? Seems very familiar.

I thought he was pretty Titus Pullo-ish (from HBO Rome fame), but definitely not the same dude.

This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Plays the part perfectly.

Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed

S3 felt like a denouement. I hope they're aiming to invest a lot of time and effort into exploring the Mexican cartels in coming seasons.
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.
"That's where we step in," Alexander says. "We make sure there's order, that people aren't taking off on top of each other. On a wave like Pipe, doing something stupid isn't just not having surfing etiquette. It's attempted murder. Getting dropped in on at Pipe is like someone pointing a gun at your head. And you know, if you point a gun at one of us, well, there are gonna be consequences."

What would happen if someone dropped in on Alexander?

"I wouldn't say much," he says. "Maybe I'd paddle up to you, tell you to go in, or take off your leash. But later I'd find you, or a few of the other guys would, and you'd be taught a lesson."

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.
