Narcos : Mexico

Bernard and Miro's crime drama is a ruthless gripping infomercial television, that is blazing guns and exploding business on all stations. It has always been the epitome of close calls. It feeds itself on it for the most part of it. And this time with a tightly packed screenplay a buoyant script that keeps giving you more and more reasons to dive into this gut wrenching grounded world. The primary strength of the series is how the writers fiddle with these many multiple characters and elevate you heartbeat through combining them on screen with various equations.

Since it is biographical, all it has to do is follow up the news and have a meticulously keep an eye on the trajectory, which it does along with glorifying each moments to a nail-biting encounter. The passed on torch by the previous cast is held by Pena and Luna. And even though they have the similar role to portray i.e. of protagonist and antagonist clashing their horns on screen, but it isn't your typical trash talk rivalry, they mean business as much as the writers does.

Pena on the positive side is convincingly a hot head and gets a much more wider range to portray than Luna. But Luna has a more reserved and cold blooded character to cook it up and it also is much more difficulty to do so. His performance is subtle and served in well, and Pena talks more clearly through his eyes. The art designing and set pieces are well crafted. The conversations are pragmatic and the cutthroat politics justified to the core. Aforementioned, the series feasts itself on close calls and yet every time the way it is weaved out onto the structure, flows fluently.

Season 01

With a rudimentary procedure and familiar structure as it was in the first season of Narcos, this is a tale of fast paced and raw hard vocab , that keeps you tangled in its crime world without exaggerating and keeping it grounded and honest.

El Padrino

The blood and sweat work that the writers put up to pays off more than enough, and addition to that Pena's character gets a wider range to factor in, and with meticulous structure like such, the close calls does give you the chills.
