Goofs

In several of the airport cut scenes showing aircraft taxiing, the aircraft shown are a Boeing 737-800 and a Boeing 767-300ER. Both these aircraft have winglets on the end of their wings. The first flight of a Boeing 737 model that was fitted with winglets happened in November 2002. The first Boeing 767 model that flew with winglets didn't happen until 2009. In another scene, an Airbus A340 is seen landing. This aircraft first flew in 1991. See more »

Dark, Real Insight, Mesmerising performance from Wagner Moura.
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Alright so, when it comes to drug related TV Shows which almost always include the DEA, the first thing that comes to mind is Breaking Bad and The Wire.

Needless to say, while preparing to start up the pilot, I continuously tried to imagine how can this series give us something original or even something that will make us say "Hey, this isn't a cheap knock off of something." Well. I was profoundly surprised. Netflix has done it again.

They managed to present the show in a way that includes every positive aspect of the two aforementioned series. It has the darkness of Breaking Bad, the intensity and the smart writing while also maintaining the thoroughness of The Wire in the sense that we get to see both sides of the drug trade, the clichés and even the everyday life that surrounds it.

The narrative style also gives it a different aspect which helps the viewer engage in a more positive way. The cast seems to be very specifically chosen since the roles don't even make you question the legitimacy of the actors.

I would say that this looks promising although I am yet to finish the series to be able to give my final word.

Definitely a series you should watch if you are into this kind of thing.

Kudos again, Netflix.
