Storyline

Narcos: Mexico exploring the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.

Absolutley gripping, Felixs' character comes to life on the screen.
19 February 2020 | by jmccrmck-65172See all my reviews

This is one of those series that you know will make you feel disappointed . . . when it's over, once you have watched the last episode. The american actors are less than so so and maybe that is by design because in their parts they do come off as a bunch of dolts. For me it is like the Godfather because watching it you become so wrapped up in the characters, especially Felix. Yes , I find myself rooting for the bad guy and then of course there is the futility of America's "war on drugs". IMO television doesn't get any better than this , someone please tell me about an american produced series as good as this one.

I returned to my review to emphasize how utterly poignant the last scene, season #2 with Walt and Felix is, the kind of dialogue/writing you back up and watch again, it is that profound

"Suburra" an Italian one on Netflix is of similar caliber.
