‘There’s no business like blow business’
A ‘narco’ is a drug lord, and Pablo Escobar was one of the most successful: beginning as a small-time black marketeer in Colombia, by
the end of the 1970s he was the main supplier of cocaine to the US. He got rich on his illegal enterprise as cities like Miami and LA
became addicted to the expensive party drug.
DEA agent Steve Murphy is sent to Colombia on a mission to catch Escobar. Partnered with local agent Javier Pen■a to help him have
Escobar extradited, Murphy is plunged into the middle of a brutal and bloody drug war where one thing is clear – Escobar, aided by
corrupt politicians, will stop at nothing to hold onto his power.
The first season of Narcos sees Murphy and Pen■a attempting to find enough incriminating evidence on Escobar to bring him down while Escobar himself sees his audacious political ambitions shot down in flames when his criminal ties are exposed.
We Like It Because:
Just 10 episodes in and Narcos has already joined alongside television’s big dramatic heavyweights. It has the writing and character
work to rival The Sopranos; gripping performances good enough for The Wire; fast-paced storytelling that’s as addictive as anything in
Breaking Bad; and enough sex and murder to make even Game of Thrones blush.
With House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Netflix has already proved it’s one of the best places for original TV drama. Now
Narcos, takes it to the next level, brilliantly recreating the true events that surrounded the rise of criminal mastermind Pablo Escobar.
Brazilian filmmaker Jose■ Padilha ensures the series is strikingly cinematic in his role as executive producer and director, and there’s
a fantastic cast on hand, with breakout performances from Wagner Moura, Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal, plus a great supporting
turn from veteran actor Luis Guzma■n.
Now on DVD and Blu-ray for the very first time, add the new TV show that everyone is talking about to your ultimate box-set
