Wonderful Seris
19 October 2017 | by theodorecharlesmorrisonSee all my reviews

I have seen many of the Latin American series that I refer to as "Narco Dramas" and this is one of the very best. The show is fast-paced and riveting. Juan Pablo Urrego nails his performance as Popeye and, even though he plays a ruthless assassin, you can't help but root for him. Nicole Santamaria plays his love interest and if beautiful women are your thing then you are in for a breathless binge. She is also a fantastic actress. The series follows the characters in both the fictional "Central Jail" (modeled after the Carcel Modelo in Bogota) and in the streets of Bogota and Medellin. Cinematography is top notch and views well in HD. I read and speak Spanish and can attest that the subtitles are accurate and that this series was professionally translated. I also highly recommend "Pablo Escobar, el Patron del Mal" and "En la Boca del Lobo". Enjoy!
