Trivia

The exterior shots of the club Camilla uses are of the world famous Lizard Lounge, including the side entrance seen at the end of episode 3. The interior is an entirely different building altogether as the floor space is much larger than any inside the Lizard Lounge, and lacks its trademark stained glass windows. See more »

I would' have given it 10/10, if they hadn't talked in English
11 March 2018 | by banconiSee all my reviews

Great act, great story, trilling all the time. As in the real narco world, all the roles are merciless, killing is normal thing. Everything would have been perfect if mexican-mexican dialogs had been in Spanish. Instead, the fact they speak English (mostly), make it a bit unrealistic, even for me as an non-english native speaker.
