    Big fan of this show. Really enjoyed the subtitles. Thought it added to the authenticity of the show. Loved all the naked Colombian women in the show too.

    I really like this so far, but I wonder if they're gonna have problems with pacing when all of this is seemingly happening so fast.

    Ep 4 spoiler

    Pablo already had his failed political bid and is on the run by episode 4. What are they gonna do for later seasons?

    The beginning scene with the taxi driver in the 9th episode was great.

    I'm through episode 9 so I don't know how they're going finish this season but I kind of assumed they'd wrap up Escobar and then move on to another infamous Narco next season

    Ah, is it gonna be a TD thing where it's made by the same guys, but with different actors and stuff every season?

    I have no idea. I just get the impression that they can't continue the Escobar story for another full season. Granted, haven't seen the finale but I get the impression that they're going to bring this story full circle.

    Just finished. Feels like it's going to go from a slower burn to a lot faster paced. Cant wait.

    I kinda felt the opposite. I thought it tore through the story and expected it to end with Escobar's end. But I am looking forward to season 2 with him on the run. I don't see how they can make this last more than one other season with the pacing of this last one.

    It's a decent show, though. Nothing spectacular.

    my biggest gripe with the show is that they expect me to believe that pablo fucking escobar wore Lee brand blue jeans.

    I am 6 episodes in, arguably best show on TV this year.

    Didn't see a thread on it, but thought this show deserved it. Movie quality cinema, top notch acting and a story that we all remember. It has done so well, season 2 has already been picked up. Netflix has been stepping up its game lately, giving HBO a run for its money.

    Through nine eps. Been watching with my gf, who is out of town until late Friday, meaning we probably won't watch the final ep til Sunday night - kinda happy about the anticipation actually.

    Met a guy two weekends ago (before I had watched the show) who was hired for Season 2 Production which he said should be early next year.

    Lees were incredibly popular in Colombia during that time. Grew up visiting Colombia almost every summer from about 85-89, then 92-2002.

    I was in Bogota when Galan was killed, and later when Pablo was killed. :warn:

    When Galan was killed, no I had no idea. Later though, it was quite obvious Colombia was a seriously messed up place. The bombings and FARC kidnappings were what stood out to me as I grew older.

    Bogota definitely got the short end of the stick even after Pablo. Thank god Uribe cleaned up that mess to the best of his abilities.

    Escobar had a really great thing and ruined it all himself. What a silly goose.

    Show is great through 3 or 4 episodes so far.

    I thought it would be annoying as well, but it adds to authenticity of the show. It would not feel the same imo if the Colombians all spoke in a shitty English accent.
