Trivia

Production designer Bernard Hides asked for an evergreen, leaf-bearing tree on one of the sets. Someone brought him a "Bottle Tree" (Brachychiton Populneus), an extremely common plant from Australia. Hides was asked if he was familiar with this variety and he replied that he had never seen a plant like it. Hides is a native of Australia and lived there most of his life. See more »

An underrated marvel
14 July 2014 | by (Italia) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to read on Wikipedia that the show was cancelled just after 6 episodes. I wasn't too excited about watching it but from the first episode I managed to continue all 6 within the entire night.

I'm unhappy about the fact that it was underrated, but I got a good taste and sense of how Mexican cartels think and act just by seeing this show.

Viewers also see how the various operations across the continent is affected by the decisions of one organization; it was very unexpected to see in this show.

However, I hope in the near future they would continue filming this show for a continual and I'm sure it would succeed no matter what.
