As a native Colombian, born and raised in Medellin (in 1975) and victim myself of the Pablo Escobar era, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with the show!!! I thought it was going to be another bad gringo movie about Colombia with lots of mistakes and not even Colombian landscapes in the background but, I WAS WRONG!!!! Very good actors too, I didn't like Escobar accent since it's not real Paisa accent but it's OK; it will go unnoticed to non- native Colombians ;)

Good Job Netflix!! Sksjdjdjdufirjfjfifrior difjrirjfjfkririfrjrjrkf. That's all I had to say

Trivia

During his peak, Pablo smuggled $70 million worth of cocaine every week amounting to about $20 billion profits a year making him one of the richest men in the world. It is said that he spent approximately $3000 in buying rubberbands for his money each month. Rats nibbled at 10 percent of his money amounting to a loss of $2 billion each year.


Goofs

A sex scene set in the mid- to late-'80s shows the woman putting on a thong after having sex. Thongs weren't readily sold for another decade. Also, a scene showing the Port of Miami shows mountains in the background, and Miami is so flat, there aren't even hills there! Also, one would think that in a series about Colombia, the name of Colombia's most famous writer, Garcia Marquez, would be pronounced correctly, but the character Steve Murphy mistakenly says "Mar QUEZ" instead of "MAR quez," and mispronounces "Cartajena" with an "enyay" instead of an "en." There are also tons of license taken with characters (Javier Pena is a nerd and not a suave, lady's man in real life; "Jhon" represents Escobar's sicario Popeye who in reality is a ruthless psychopath; etc.) The biggest out-of-sequence flaw is that Murphy and Pena weren't assigned to Colombia until 1988, yet the series has them there at the beginning when Escobar began in the early 1980's. And Justice Minister Lara Bonilla is a true hero of the Escobar tragedy, giving his life in order to expose Escobar's criminal record, and it's a crime that this series tries to claim that the DEA used him to accomplish their mission, when the DEA wasn't even active on the Escobar radar until years later.
