narcos is a series now available on netflix profiling the rise and ruin of the medellin cartel and its charismatic leader, pablo escobar. serious compulsive viewing
recently saw the first two episodes. it's watchable but i thought the casting could have been better.
before all the commercial seasons hit the tv screens maybe its time to start watching something intensive.
strange to watch as a latin american; most of the spanish speakers are not natives and i think they are missing an important element of the story which is the regional identity (slangs, behaviour, ideas) of the characters.
a hollywoodized retelling of a sad and regrettable chapter of colombian history for gringos. don't bother
