I have surprised myself at how bored I am with this new season of Narcos. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 16, 2018
The visuals remain top notch, but the action scenes seem... well, we've been here before right? If you're looking for a show that grows and surprises the audience, "Narcos: Mexico" is not that show.
November 16, 2018
Narcos: Mexico lives in the shadow of its predecessors, attempting to emulate their success without any willingness to embrace originality.

If you liked Narcos, you'll like this. But I'm beginning to find it exhausting.
November 19, 2018
No matter how lush the scenery or charismatic the leads in their artificial fibres, though, one picture shown here ultimately says it all: Nancy Reagan holding up a placard that read "Just say no".
November 16, 2018
The sheer level of institutional f*ckery makes Narcos: Mexico the most The Wire-y chapter so far.
November 16, 2018
Whether you're a diehard fan of the series or are just looking for 10 episodes of a stellar crime drama, Narcos' latest installment works.
November 19, 2018
Four seasons in, Narcos isn't shaking up its formula so much as it's modifying it in compelling ways.
November 16, 2018
Though Narcos: Mexico is technically a sister show to Narcos rather than its fourth season, it shares enough of the same DNA that the transition shouldn't rattle you too badly.

November 16, 2018
Good news, Narcos fans. Narcos: Mexico is just as riveting (and educational) as its predecessor. Narcos has relocated from Colombia through the '70s to '90s to Guadalajara, Mexico in the early '80s.
November 16, 2018
There is plenty of action, intensity, and drama to be found along [the] path, buoyed by solid performances from the two leads and excellent supporting cast members.

The violence at the beginning is a little extreme and the sundry executions may put you off, but the show takes on subtlety and complexity...
November 16, 2018
Wait a minute, is the narrator the one and only Scoot McNairy?!?! Oh, why yes it is. I was already all in, but now I'm ALL IN.

November 16, 2018
It's dreary and occasionally punches the "what's the point?" button really hard. And that's both the best and the worst thing about it.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
December 7, 2018
Narcos: Mexico is the TV version of a popcorn movie. It's super-violent, full of colourful lowlifes, and tells an edge of your seat story.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 16, 2018
For the blow go on, the violence must be weeded out first.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It's worth looking at ourselves in this mirror, even if it hurts. [Full review in Spanish]
November 16, 2018
Despite the shift of location and the absence of the magnificent Wagner Moura - who, as Escobar, elevated series one and two beyond true-crime sensationalism - Narcos is still television's most irresistible guilty pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 16, 2018
Narcos: Mexico is a layered drama with political nous, and not just a snorting frenzy of cheap glamour and throwaway murder.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 16, 2018
But no one portrays the labyrinthine world of the modern drug cartel in all of insidious complexity as well as the Netflix Narcos franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
