Fantastic series with a great cast. Also, love the fact that the actors playing the Columbians speak Spanish (with English subtitles) which adds more realism to the story. If you were a fan of the Sopranos, you'll like Narcos.

This is an excellent series and is under the radar for must watch, The two DEA agaents did very well in the series also. Currently I'm watching season two, this guy was a real S.O.B. in my opinion and killed hundreds of people, many policemen trying to make an honest living in Columbia.

A docudrama about Pablo Escobar and the rise of cocaine in the USA. An engaging story that is well acted by Wagner Moura et al.

Even if you're already familiar with the broad strokes of Pablo Escobar's rise and fall, it's worth watching Narcos to experience the textures of the Colombian drug trade at its ugliest.

No one wants to read a show!!! If I want to read a damn show I will get a book!! BS subtitles that are way too fast to read the longer ones! Fairly good show but very violent! The morons that made the show could leave the subtitles on the screen longer so people have time to read them! Why don't the moron fools that make these kind of shows give people the option to read the subtitles or lessen to it in English or Spanish!! No one wants to read a show that's 8 hours long!! The morons that made the show made it in both English and Spanish with the Spanish having English subtitles that the idiots film makers didn’t leave the subtitles on the screen long enough to read them unless you are a speed reader!! The movie is on 4 disks and like 8 hours long with a total of 10 episodes with each episode approximately 50 minutes long so you better be a fast reader or you will have to rewind the show many times to read the longer subtitles! That is why I ranked this show so low!! Otherwise I would have ranked it a 4.

Chronicled the drug war between US (Reagan & GW Bush) and Colombian governments and the infamous narcos, led by Pablo Escobar who went from a small time smuggler to drug kingpin. We learned bits and pieces of the history in media now and then. It is good to have them in a single series. Bonus is that most of the film was shot in Bogotá though more of its culture outside the narcos' circle would have been nice. Critics:
8.9/10 IMDb, 84% Rotten Tomatoes, 77/100 Metacritic.
Netflix takes on the infamous Medellín drug cartel in "Narcos," which follows the rise and fall of Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Drug Enforcement Agency agents hunting him. The story is told largely from the points of view of Escobar, played by Brazilian actor Wagner Moura, and U.S. DEA Agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), on opposite sides of what would become an all-out war.

Narcos is excellent. A must watch. The only problem we had was that half is in Spanish with subtitles, so you must concentrate all the time on the movie and be a fast reader, however this added to the movie. We watched it four evenings in a row and hated that we had to stop in the middle. Don't miss this one Can't wait for season II to come out in the Fall of 2016.

Loads of quotes at wikiquote. Here is a sample:
Back then, we were just finding out about the effects of cocaine - on the human brain. We didn't know much, but we knew it was some pretty powerful shxt. Cocaine hijacks the pleasure centers in the brain. A rat will choose cocaine over food and water. It would choose cocaine over sleep, over sex over life itself. The human brain isn't quite the same as a rodent's unless we're talking about cocaine.
===
Well your government's research says 660 tons of cocaine were consumed in the United States last year. Perhaps if your resources were focused at home, we'd all be better off.
===
Escobar said, "Better a grave in Colombia than a cell in the US." Well, guess what, motherfucker? That works for me.
===
Look, I am not a rich person. I am a poor person with money.
