Synopsis of Narcos

Narcos is a Netflix exclusive American crime web TV series which is created and produced by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro. Narcos tells the story of the Colombian notorious Drug Kingpins (Pablo Escobar) rise and fall, who became a billionaire through the production and distribution of cocaine. This is a truly exciting show. The characters and action are done well and the story moves at a pace fast enough to get your adrenaline to the whole episode.

This is truly an original and carefully planned TV show with a lot of heart.

Netflix was able to present the show in a way that includes all the positive aspects of the two aforementioned series. It has the darkness of Breaking Bad, intensity and intelligent writing while maintaining the rigor of the wire in the sense that we can see both sides of drug trafficking, clichés and even everyday life around him. The narrative style also gives you a different look, which helps the viewer to participate in a more positive way. The cast seems to be chosen very specific because the papers do not even question the legitimacy of the actors. most of the relevant action is the right of the history of this sad time in the history of Colombia (and America). Shot entirely in Colombia and a good 50% of Spanish dialogues in this series aims to be as real as possible. The story is also colors outside the lines of the Manichaean version of the war on drugs most Americans have swallowed hook, line and sinker from Uncle Ronnie began to feed us back in his presidency.

In the role of Pablo Escobar is Wagner Moura, who actually had to learn Spanish for the role. I want to send his Spanish teacher here to teach because he speaks very well. I am sure that the native Colombians can say he is not one of them, but I can not. Plus it is an exact copy (pardon the expression) of Paul. Resolutely brutal and establish a desperate pace this is one of the best crime dramas I’ve seen in a long time. This series reminds me of the two great novels of Don Winslow, recounting the Mexican cartels, the power of the dog and poster. The structure is almost like a documentary on the concept with a voiceover by one of the main agents of the DEA at the scene. I’m only a few episodes in this and already waiting for one more season, a very great compliment.
