I've heard nothing but good things about this from people irl. What do you guys think? Is it worth a watch?
it's watchable enough, but fairly basic bitch stuff. Kinda dull for a true story about drug running, politics, murder and sex.
Escobar's actor lacks the gravitas to be believable as a properly scary dude, especially when Luiz Guzman is on screen with him. And the main DEA guy is as boring as they come. It's all very black and white, the good guys are dull, the bad guys are dull. Seems like the show runners wanted to do some Scorsese-esque thing with god-like overview narration, but it fails.
I only watched the first episode two weeks ago.
Its very well done if you cut the american part out,the script for the americans was generic as fuck,the lines were on par with the worst writing of all time.
Everything else is amazing,I will watch the rest of it today.
