Narcos: Mexico

Recommended Posts

Thankfully.  Not because they're hard to watch, but because torture scenes are always so overdone and boring.  

Agree with others that this might be the best season yet. Simply amazing.  

I was glad to see those two American writers get whacked.  They acted weird and I don't know anyone who acts like them and they were fucking annoying.  

Rafa's girl Sophie had a young Lorraine Bracco vibe.  So fucking hot.

Bumping this thread because I just started S4 and it's all sorts of awesome.  I'm not a Netflix binge watcher at all but this one got me hooked.

Was definitely not expecting the "surprise" in Ep5.

Parts of this season were hard to watch and typically violence doesn’t bother me too much. The restaurant scene and Kiki “interrogation” especially.

Great season tho.

Go to BestGore.com and do a search under "Mexican Cartels".

Narcos is like the Disney Channel compared to what really happens.

She was over the top sexy.

I don’t know. Azúl looks like every taxi driver I’ve ever had in Mexico.

I have always found the corruption in Mexico so confusing.  Federal Police, State Police, Army, DFS.  This was no exception and cut into my enjoyment a little bit, both as to keeping things straight, and making me really depressed about Mexico and the drug war.

The Don Winslow books.Power of the Dog and The Cartel, are thinly fictionalized stories of the Mexican cartels.  Great reads if you're into it.

By most accounts, Gallardo and Arrellano were initially just corrupt businessmen.  As alluded to by Escobar, the introduction of cocaine upped the stakes and the violence (initially borrowed from the Colombians) and then, after the dissolution of the first plaza cartel, things got unstable and the Zetas arose in the Gulf Cartel and the wheels came completely off.

Navegante, you beautiful, mulleted bastard.

The new narcotraficante sister looks like AOC’s auntie or something.

Not sure how much value this class of DEA gringos will provide.

No, but you're a fool not to start from the beginning and ride it out.

It's not a must, but their timelines overlap and they share some of the same characters that Narcos: Mexico kind of assumes you already know.

Plus you're missing out on some primo latina ass if you skip episodes.

FWIW I used to own a Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Think it was a '77. Had a 401 GM engine and a clusterfuck of a Turbo 400 paired with a Quadratrack 4x4 transmision system. When the thing was running, it would climb a tree.

Just finished S2. Really is a great show...I also didn’t realize Netflix drops whole seasons at a time...I binged the final episodes of S1 earlier this week while traveling to meetings and thought I would only see one episode Thursday. When I saw it was the whole series...TV went off at 4am this morning.

Some good shit. In multiple ways.

I started with Mexico and loved it and didn't feel like I missed anything.  I went back and started watching the original, but it didn't hold my interest as well.  Haven't finished season 2 of the original yet.  Started Mexico season 2 earlier tonight and love it.  Only seen 2 episodes thus far.

The cold open to episode six with those 2 boys playing army.  Holy shit, that's a little disturbing.

Had to google it, true story. 12 yo Maid. The Salinas family had no idea her last name or where she was from. High quality people

carlos Salinas and his family were a special kind of garbage. They would make an interesting Netflix series

The scene on the bridge got me. 
Got me good.
Holy shit.


And the true story is actually SO MUCH WORSE.


He (Clavel, Miguel Angel’s driver in the series) earned his trust to the point of becoming his partner in some risky and illegal but lucrative venture, then he used his seduction skills to marry a sister of Palma and the final phase was to become his wife’s lover, Guadalupe Leija of Palma, to convince her to take two million pesos from her accounts, to escape with him to San Francisco, California, where once they stayed at a hotel he proceeded to cut her throat.

Fifteen days later he took Héctor Jesús and Nataly, sons of Héctor and Guadalupe to San Cristóbal, Venezuela, where he proceeded to throw them from the bridge of La Concordia, taking the precaution of taking a video of the terrifying event to send it to Palma. It should be noted that Rafael Clavel also sent Guadalupe’s head properly preserved in a cooler.

I really liked the Don Guerra character,and the fact he had the Brownsville Police at his party.

I've been reading up on the actual history after watching season 2.  Not sure I've ever been more convinced that we just need to legalize everything.  Put these psychopathic murderers out of business the way we did the bootleggers.
