Tuesdays Netflix Binge! “Narcos”

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

I could tell I was going to like this show within the first few minutes. Season 1 of Narcos follows the story of professional smuggler turned drug lord Pablo Escobar.

The story is told from the perspective of a DEA agent trying to bring Pablo down. The show starts by showing us step by step how Pablo began his operation. Starting from moving small amounts of cocaine into Miami and eventually moving hundreds of kilos every single day. The events are all based on a true story but some things have been changed for the privacy of individuals involved.

I love when watching this show that you feel like you are getting a sneak peek into the criminal underworld of cocaine manufacturing and smuggling. I rate the show 8.7/10.

Here’s the trailer.
