Trivia

This is technically Mauricio Mejía's 2nd time portraying paramilitary leader Carlos Castaño in a TV series. The 1st time he played the role was in the Colombian TV series El Cartel de los Sapos (2008), with his role as Adolfo Aguilar, a character based on the real life Carlos Castaño. See more »

Goofs

Major Wysession is actually a Colonel. Early on in the season, his eagle rank insignia is properly adhered to his uniform shirt collar. Later on, it is woefully misplaced, in two ways. A United States Marine Colonel would never have his rank insignia, or any other medals improperly placed on his uniform. See more »

Fantastic production, we are living in the golden age of series
29 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is such a quality production. Its cinema quality in every aspect. I've seen two episodes so far but if this show keep this up I give it an even higher grade. Netflix is now really starting to compete with HBO and this is much better than Netflix anchor House of Cards for example.

Now I don't like shows that glorify and make the criminals heroes, but I don't think this series does that. Escobar is a ruthless person but still his a family man in some ways. Whats good with Narcos is that it portrays both side of the law. If it would only show it from Pablos perspective it wouldn't be as interesting.

This is a very classy production. Everything from the DEA-detective who is the narrative voice to the quality of the camera work. The actors are spot on and the scenes are amazing. I nearly feel that I'm in the Colombian jungle and the hot humid air touches me through the screen.

I just love series nowadays. You can transport you self to nearly every situation of life and follow character for a long time. And they really use the advantages of series if you compare it to film.
