I have surprised myself at how bored I am with this new season of Narcos. [Full Review in Spanish]
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 16, 2018
Luna is a talent. But Luna had to elevate more choppy writing than his predecessors did in the first three seasons. It seems as if the primary writers for this season weren't sure what kind of gangster they wanted Gallardo to be.
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
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

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
December 17, 2018
This Eric Newman showrun late 1970s set series is a near perfect study in character, criminal and otherwise.
November 16, 2018
For the blow go on, the violence must be weeded out first.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 30, 2018
It's worth looking at ourselves in this mirror, even if it hurts. [Full review in Spanish]
January 22, 2019
This is a product that should work much better and it has the potential to. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
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.
