    This season was unique because it showed the death of Pablo Escobar. The whole season was based on the fact that how can a powerful and strong person like Pablo Escobar can be killed. Also, it showed that even having that much money did not change Escobar's hart, he loved his family more than everything he was ready to sacrifice everything for them. He burned a lot of money to make sure that his daughter does not freeze. I liked this series a lot, and till now, I am continuously watching the new seasons depside the fact that Escobar does not play there.

    Narcos' second season is still plagued with unnecessary narration, robbing the audience from finding importance in characters and events on their own. It's like coming back from the bathroom at a movie theater and having your friend explain what you missed, it's not the same as experiencing what happened for yourself. However, as the season reaches its end, the narration lessens, allowing the show to come to life through the emotional performances of the characters. Paulina Gaitan as Tata Escobar was hands down the best of these performances, while Wagner Moura and Boyd Holbrook become a bit less annoying near the end of the season. Unfortunately the good section near the end was not enough to make up for this boring season.
