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.

The two problem
26 November 2018 | by nothimmeSee all my reviews

In before you found this review not helpful just hold your horses. I'm not saying the series is bad. I'm only focusing the weak sides of the show so that you have some insights to understand why it isn't as good as the original and why it feels a little bit off.

First, the things happening too fast, and the time perception is confusing. When did our main guy go from nobody to the boss of the bosses? They didn't put enough developments in order for him to turn into a boss. He just killed some people and suddenly became a Godfather. It's almost unbelievable. One minute he has all the controls, next minute some people torturing him. One minute everything's fine, next minute everybody's got a problem.

Second, the characters are lacking, or their arc isn't believable enough. For example, the main guy. He doesn't have moments. Even if he did have some small moments, it was all poorly executed. I really don't know why the writers didn't do the same thing as what they did with Pablo. We knew that that guy is the guy. He had at least one moment to shine in every episode. They even gave him enough screen time to explore his mental status. They actually managed to turn an evil man into a lovable character. When he appered in this show I lost my sh❗t. But now this guy, Félix Gallardo, feels like a side character in his own story. He doesn't even have a normal human interaction. In the first episode, he said he used to be a cop, but I forgot about that until he reminded it us again in the last episode. I felt like he was in his own show because he just had to. The only interesting thing about him was his idea of ''Now it's my turn to build an empire'' And that idea faded with his poorly developed arc and dull characteristic. But I have hopes for him in next season. The last episode really did set his actual foundation that needed set a long time ago.
