Wow
22 June 2017 | by rosiecornSee all my reviews

I was fascinated with this series and can't wait for the next one. There is definitely room for this story to continue. I think Narcos creates a great background. Wikipedia says the real El Chapo carries the same notoriety as Al Capone, is listed on the Fortune 500 list, and matched the wealth of Pablo Escobar. The series seems to have only started this story and I'm ready for it to continue. Disclaimer- as noted above, the series does depict him as a scary criminal. Not a hero in any way. Yet I admit to being fascinated by the story.
