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 »

Andres Parra is My New Favorite Actor!
26 October 2015 | by beatlesjunkySee all my reviews

I loved Narcos but I am over the moon for Escobar, El patron del Mal & I simply adore Andrés Parra! 😍(I also love all of Pablo's sidekicks, namely, Marino, Pedro Motoa, Mariachi, Chile, Fabio, Pablo's mother, Cousin Gonzalo, Paluche & Pablo's wife, Paty!) But, Andrés is my new favorite actor! I've searched Tivo, Netflix, Amazon & Hulu to find any show or movie that he might be in, no matter how small a role! I'm now on my second viewing of Escobar, El patron del Mal! I have absolutely no problem with the subtitles & my high school Spanish has improved tenfold! The best acting I've ever seen in my life was when Pablo discovered that his family was in the Monaco building when it was bombed! Andrés' acting was as good as anything I've seen in the Godfather or any other all time great movie, bar none!
