    I only watch with subtitles. It's why I hate going to the movies.

    I can understand, makes it hard to watch the show if you don't want to commit to keeping your eyeballs on the screen at all times. That's how I watch most stuff. Alas, I still have watched both seasons, it has just taken me a super long time to do it.

    finished it. Enjoyed it. I do wish a death scene or two was more vicious. One motherfucker needed to be skinned alive. Those of you who watched know who I mean.

    Yeah. I was worried that post-Escobar would be a tough transition but man they hit this season out of the park. Really hope they keep it going. Totally underrated series.

    Yeah, this very well may have been the best season, so far. It's such a fast-paced, easy binge watch.

    I listened to Sepinwall's podcast and they alluded to the show setting up for a transition into Mexico and could eventually branch of into El Chapo territory, as well.

    I always found the Cali guys more interesting IRL, but season 3 was definitely better overall. Appreciate the dramatic licensing used by bringing Pena back for a familiar face. But all 4 of the Cali godfathers were captivating this season, and Salcedo's story really added a lot. There was no replacing the gravity that Moura brought to Pablo, but I think the disparate focus and stories allowed for a better story. Alberto Amman as Pacho was pretty fucking good though

    Absolutely. He's talking about the love of his life and for a minute you think he has a soul. Then, you realize he's going to kill her and that's why he needs to get a night off from killing for the job.

    finished S3 the other night. Agree with those who felt this season was the best. My favorite character/actor was Chepe. Pepe Rapazote was amazing on screen. He had some of the best scenes of the season. The barbershop, the dinner and his final meal where he called the cops on himself. A close 2nd was Pacho I enjoyed him very much. This show moves at a crazy pace but I felt they could've stretched this season into another as the parts felt rushed. For as strong as Chepe and Pacho how they wrapped up the deaths of these men felt underwhelming and just tossed in.

    Looking forward to our path to Mexico.

    Narcos’ Location Scout Found Shot Dead in Mexico 6 / 19
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Variety

    Anna Marie de la Fuente3 hrs ago
    Mexican location scout Carlos Muñoz Portal was shot to death in a violent region in central Mexico Monday while scouting for season four of Netflix’s hit show “Narcos.” The seasoned scout, who worked for Stacy Perskie’s Mexico City-based production company Redrum, has a slew of high profile credits to his name, including, “Sicario,” “Spectre,” “Fast & Furious” and “Apocalypto.”

    Netflix issued the following statement: “We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family. The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate.

    Several Mexican journalists posted photos along with the news.Muñoz’s bullet-riddled body and car were found in a remote area near the borders of Hidalgo state, which is said to have the highest murder rate in Mexico. In July, 182 cases of homicide were reported in the densely populated state, a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants.

    According to local reports, authorities have had trouble piecing together the circumstances that led to his killing, given the dearth of witnesses.

    Netflix’s season 4 is said to be exploring the origins of Mexico’s infamous Juarez cartel just as season 3 focused on the rise and fall of Colombia’s Cali cartel and heralded the shift of the drug wars to Mexico.

    Munoz’s murder raises doubts on whether the production will continue in Mexico or move back to Colombia where it began. Such a decision would imperil hundreds of jobs that the series’ production would have generated in Mexico.

    when peña's dad warned him that mexico was different at the end of the season, this is the shit he was warning him about. cartels in colombia were never this willing, open, or ruthless about killing civilians.

    It was like the border scene in Sicario where the two carloads of Mexican cartel thugs are sent to kill. They know they are dead, that's a given. Just a question of can they get to the drug lord being brought back to USA.
    They don't give a fuck.

    Just finished S3 last night and, as others have said, I think it was the best so far. The Salcedo story was a nice touch and so many of his scenes had me on edge. My only disappointment is that Pena never got to punch the CIA officer in the face.
