Trivia

Pedro Pascal felt uncomfortable in 1980s fashions ("I looked like a kid.") so he decided to make Peña's wardrobe a character trait: "Let's just say Javier Peña is like Don Draper, in that the 70s is where he really found himself... and so he's stuck there. He's not throwing those pants out, he's not changing his hair, he's not changing his shoes. It's his time, and he's gonna look like that until the day he dies." See more »

Goofs

Many of the weapons carried by the Colombian forces throughout the series are seen with the 'Picatinny Rail' system in place of the carrying handles on their M-16s/M-4s. This series is set in the 1980s and the Picatinny Rail system was not adopted by US forces until the mid 90s. See more »

Outstanding!
29 March 2020 | by DiCaprio-HardyFanSee all my reviews

Narcos is such a great show it's hard to explain just how good it really is. Wagner Moura and Pedro Pescal lead an amazing cast who suck you right into the show. There have been a lot of shows about drug cartels but this is without a doubt the best and it's bit close! It really is addicting once you start watching and you get used the subtitles pretty quick.
