Great Show...If you like Breaking Bad, The Bridge, Narcos. This Show's for you!
14 July 2016 | by micahdunfordSee all my reviews

Have only seen 2 episodes, but I find it an addictive show. 2016 is a very bad year for new television series and some good one's being canceled "The Bridge" last year. It has become a chore to to find interesting television... "Better Call Saul" is OK and watchable but it is a bit boring and lackluster especially compared to "Breaking Bad". I am looking forward to new season of "Narcos" and I would compare this series to "Narcos" with more of an American/Mexican FLARE similar to "The Bridge". The lead player's in the show are very realistic and Joaquim DE Almeida had a role in "Clear and Present Danger" one of my favorite drug cartel movies of all time. I think he brings solidity to the series and I can't wait to see what he is up to!
