I finished season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy, putting season 11 on hold because too much feels… Maybe next week. Haha. For months, my mom had been bugging me to watch Narcos. Finally, Jim and I watched it in a span of 3 days (we could have seen it in a day if life didn’t keep getting in the way lol) and I’ve got to say it might be the best TV series I’ve seen all year.
Narcos is about the notorious Medellin drug cartel ran by the notorious Pablo Escobar. Because it’s based on a true story, the story is presented like a docu-drama with inserts of real life footage. You’ll see actor Wagner Moura doing a brilliant portrayal of Pablo Escobar, cut to footage of the actual kingpin responsible for over 4,000 deaths in a span of 2 decades.
It doesn’t hurt that my crush, Pedro Pascal is in the show as DEA agent Javier Peña.
I first saw him as Oberyn Martell on Game Of Thrones. What a hottie.
Since Narcos is based on real events, King Joffrey doesn’t seem as cruel beside Escobar. Season 2 will come our early fall next year.
Trivia: Narrator/DEA agent Steve Murphy, played by Boyd Holbrook, appeared in Gone Girl as the guy who scammed Amy when she went in hiding.
