Excellent Storyline on Drugs, Murder, Cash, and Revenge

I use to see the previews of the episodes from Seasons one and two, and never watched the show. I thought to myself, "What is this skinny young girl doing, trying to be a drug lord"? I turned the channel. Boy, was I ever wrong. I caught up by binging over the weekend on Seasons one and two on Netflix. I can barely wait until Season three begins. This is one of the best and most exciting and well-written drug lord vs. drug lord TV shows since Breaking Bard. Brava. Both Teresa Mendoza and Camilla Vargas are bad ass all the way.
