Goofs

Handheld satellite phones the size of a Palm were not sold until the mid 1990s. Systems before that needed a antenna bigger than the one on handhelds. The tracking from airplane is right but they are tracking early analogue cell phones. See more »

How to do Television right.
28 August 2015 | by (Montreal, Qc) – See all my reviews

Since movies have become nothing but shoot-em-ups and comic books television has emerged as the way to get great drama to adults.

Narcos is a tale that everyone knows today, but the storytelling of this series is done with great visuals, interesting casting and a storytelling format which I love.

Using the protagonist as the voice over narrator gives this series the feel of Goodfellas or Casino (two of my favourite movies by the way).

Its extremely watchable and kept my attention the whole time. The scene with Pablo Escobar on the bridge was stunning.

A worthwhile watch, if you have interests in things other than comic books.
