Narcos

Recommended Posts

Anyone watching NARCOS, on Netflix?  The first two episodes are pretty good cops/robbers tv, but it's hindered by an omnipresent voiceover.  It's the story of Pablo Escobar, at one point one of the wealthiest men on the planet, and the DEA agent embedded in Colombia who's trying to nail him.  Good acting, esp. by the guy playing Escobar.  I'm going to give it 1 more episode to see if the VO doesn't become a dealbreaker.  The set up of this as "magic realism" in the pilot is total red herring so far--ain't no magic realism at all.

I gave up after the 4th episode.  The voiceover killed it for me and guy playing Escobar couldn't save it.  Just annoying, like a fan version of Carlos + the Wire.
