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 »

The best adaptation I have seen!
3 August 2016 | by lcarterf34See all my reviews

This was an interestingly informative series. Unlike the new Narcos show, this show gave us a complete insight of how Pablo became the terror he was.

In my opinion Narcos has to get better with their storyline, as it is not as thorough as the Pablo el Patron series. Maybe because they telling it from the Narcs perspective and even though it is a good show, I feel like it is still lacking some pertinent information.

Pablo el Patron took me by surprise and held me tight until the very end of the series and now I feel like I need more but the story came to an end in the right way. LOVED IT!!!!!!! I hate it took me 4 years to see it.
