    I just started watching the Netflix series Narcos. Pretty good so far.

    Binge watched yesterday and today.
    Just finished the last episode of the season half an hour ago.
    Excellent show, just waiting for season 2.

    Halfway through it right now and their armorer should have done some googling. In a few places you can see Styer TMP's a gun that didn't even enter production till 1992. I also had never heard of the Israeli connection that made the Galils and Uzi's so popular with the Cartel.

    It's just a fictional TV series inspired by real characters and a true story. Emphasis on the words "fictional" and "inspired". I'm sure if I take my time I could find another 500 disparities between the real historical events and what happens in the movie. But that is not why I spent the last two days watching it.
    Just relax and enjoy. That's what movies are for. Entertainment, not history classes.

    They are actually sticking to the real story fairly well. I'm just wondering if Grey Fox is going to make an appearance. Did you read Bowden's book?

    I think so too. It's not a documentary, but it is entertaining.

    It is addictive. I already got through the season 1. Now I get to wait for the next one.

    Use the time to bone up on your Espanol or you will be doing equal parts reading and watching.

    This is about Pablo Escobar, since it hasn't been mentioned.

    I'll start watching it tomorrow.

    Thanks for the tip. :thumbsup:

    I remember when my dad stopped watching "The Bridge" for the same reason. :timeforthat:

    I sit at a desk infront of 5 monitors most days and usually I like to have something playing while I work. Could not do that with this show because I was constantly glued to the screen trying to read the dialog. Seriously, this show is easily 80/20 Spanish to English, possibly even 90/10. All that being said, it doesn't take away from it at all, frankly I think it adds authenticity. I hate when movies like The Hunt For Red October have the "Russians" speaking in British accented English.

    Just a word of caution...you may not want the little ones roaming around when you watch it. It has a good amount of nudity, sex, and violence. I'm not saying that like it's a bad thing, mind you. Just cautioning.

    I was pretty shocked. I mean you see simulated sex on HBO and Showtimes shows and there might be a tit hanging out but there is one scene where a guy actually stimulates his lady's top half with his mouth on camera. That ain't exactly something you can fake.
