Critic Reviews for Narcos: Season 2

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (9)

The performances by Moura, Pascal and everyone else are still some of the best seen on television right now with Moura taking the cake again in the last three episodes.

Fans of season one will likely feel that season two is a suitably impressive step forward.But... it struggles with the difficulties of telling straightforward historical true stories within the confines of episodic television.

September 6, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Season two feels much more assured in its execution than the first, partly owing to the story's shorter timeframe.
