Trivia

The series was created by Camilo Cano and Juana Uribe who are both closely tied with Pablo Escobar. Camilo Cano is the son of Guillermo Cano who was the publisher of newspaper El Espectador and who was murdered by Escobar in December 1986. Juana Uribe is the vice president of Caracol TV and also the series' producer. She is the daughter to Maruja Pachón who was kidnapped by Pablo Escobar on 7 November 1990 and later released. Juana is also the niece to presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galán who was killed by Escobar in August 1989. See more »

Goofs

Several of the rifles used by the cartel members on this series are M4 carbines (the current version of the US military m16 rifle). The M4 carbine was not in use until 1994, the year after Escobar's death.

Furthemore, many of the military and cartel's guns in this series feature "picatinny rails" to mount accessories, such as flashlights, scopes, and laser aiming devices. This rail system was also not adopted until the mid '90s, and even then, not in full military use until years after Escobar was killed.

Finally, in several scenes the weapons are equipped with modern lighting systems and "quad rails," which were not developed until long after this story takes place.

The M16a1 and a2 rifles shown being used by the militants and police in this series are interspersed with the weapons mentioned above. Likely, the producers relied on whatever props they could acquire, and importing older, a1/a2 weapons was very cost prohibitive. See more »

Best Latin American Series Ever
14 February 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Superb. I haven't enjoyed a TV show this much since Breaking Bad. If you speak Spanish, you will enjoy Colombian from different provinces which is a delight. Escobar role is phenomenal. The sicarios are so believable and scary but hilarious at the same time! Angie Cepeda is a bonus. She is so hot is not even funny (or it may be I can't get the image of her naked in "Pantaleon y sus visitadoras".

If I have to criticize something: 50 episodes would have been more than enough.

Another great thing about this series is that you get to see a lot of Colombia. Especially Medellin and Bogota and the beautiful Colombians which are a pleasure to listen to. Spanish is my native tongue (I am Argentinean) and I believe Colombians have the most beautiful and richest Spanish. .

Amazing! I highly recommend it.
