An incredible adaptation of real-life stories. Narcos tells of Colombian drug traffickers, at least in the first 3 seasons, and how they rose to power and fell. The first two seasons of the show focus on Pablo Escobar, one of the most notorious traffickers that ever lived. What makes it interesting is that it delves into the everyday life of Pablo and of the agents that were there to find him, distancing itself from documentaries about the same theme. It is a complex political and social story that will leave you wanting more every time an episode ends. After its first two seasons, Escobar´s plot ends and the show goes to a slightly different one, the Cali Cartel. At first, I thought the 3rd season wouldn’t be able to live up to the previous ones, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was seriously invested in the plot and the characters and wanted to know what would happen. This is clearly what a show is supposed to do. It entertains you and, at the same time, it gives you a little bit of history, although with a few changes. Narcos´ 4th season is coming out sometime this year, probably, and I think you should catch up before it arrives.
