NFT: Narcos Season 3 (no spoilers)

Steve L : 9/8/2017 12:21 pm
Anyone watched it yet? I am half way through and while it's not as exciting and violent, it's incredibly interesting how it all turned from Escobar.
I'm catching up on Vikings then

will start season 3 of Narcos. I'm actually looking forward to less cartoonish scenarios and more politics. That was always the best part of seasons 1 and 2 which played second fiddle to the constant murders and bombings. Only so many times to watch Escobar survive before it gets old.
I think it's the best season so far

Definitely a lot less violent then the first 2 seasons (That kinda changes towards the end) but I think the storyline is better. Maybe because everybody knew how it was going to end with Escobar yet I had no idea about the Cali cartel. Can't wait for season 4.
Fantastic season.

I have two episodes downloaded on my kindle to watch on my flight to Mass. tonight. I think this season has been the best.

Is it good?

I felt like the cat and mouse game started to get really tiring in Season 2. I loved Season 1.. and Season 2 had it's moments. It just seemed like after a while it was like.. alright, just fucking catch the guy already.

I didn't have high hopes for S3 - but maybe I'll check it out.
I did'nt think they could top Seasons 1 and 2

but they did. Excellent the way the moved from the Escobar story line and introducing the Cali cartel.

I think what makes this so good is that the Cali cartel story was not as well known. Not as many movies, documentaries, books, etc. as there was about Escobar.

I watched the first 2 seasons kind of knowing what was going to happen, this season not so much.
Agreed ^

So shocked how good it was. Perhaps equal or better then any season

I can see them doing a change in story again as well, perhaps El Chapo or that ilk will be next in Mexico
The Cali godfather actors are really excellent

Filled the Escobar star void easily. Loved Chepe's scenes especially.

Agreed. Chepes scenes make me want to rewatch it sooner then later.

Pacho is such a savage
Navagente was great as well

It's good but it's a whole lot of that again.
Iíve binge watched season 1 over the last day or so

might as well cancel all my weekend plans.
Someone mentioned El Chapo above ....

and taking the story in that direction would be interesting indeed.

I think 1 of the problems (if a problem exists) with the 3rd season is that Escobar's character was so over the top in real life (modern day Jesse James type? Billy the Kid?) ...
and then match that with the actor who portrayed Escobar (who was amazing). There was bound to be some sort of let down(?)

Someone also mentioned above that the Cali Cartel was way more low key (old style Mafioso (?) ).
The contrast between Escobar's violence and the Rodriguez brother's sophistication is done very well (IMO).

Not a bad season though - all in all. I am enjoying it (about 7 episodes in).
