Having seen all Padilha movies, I was anxious to see this new Netflix series and had great expectations. He did it again. I cannot stop watching. One episode after another. OK if the cast is not Colombian. But they are all good actors and play the parts very well. I will try to finish this weekend all the episodes but i think there will be more seasons. Best series of the year so far. The action is great. The scenarios are perfect. The 1980's atmosphere is awesome. 10 out 0f 10. I hope they will make more series like that in the future. Good real stories and perfect action and direction. I could not expect less from Padilha.

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.
