Narcos equivalent but in certain senses deeper
24 June 2017 | by yehielpolSee all my reviews

So far I watched all 9 episodes, in the beginning you can't stop wonder about the similarity to Narcos. It's good enough for me, of course you must have sub titles in English. Waiting for the next episodes or season. Defiantly worth watching! It's hair not to feel sorry at certain times while watching for El Chappo , as they were smart enough to make him very human as the season progresses.
