What to Watch: Narcos
Have you heard everyone talking about the latest show on netflix, Narcos? It's *REALLY* good. It's a serialized show that follows two DEA agents in Columbia in the 70s/80s who are following the rise of kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel. It's fiction, but there are real news clips and things interspersed and it feels real. It's pretty crazy. And very bingeable. My only complaint (and it's not an actual complaint, more like a heads up) is that a LOT of this show is in Spanish so there are subtitles. This isn't the kind of show you have on in the background while you're cooking or cleaning, this is one you have to pay attention to. So block some time and test it out. I think you'll like it.
Ok, also, the posters for this show are unreal. How are the getting away with this? As someone who works in a highly regulated industry, I applaud your ability to do this kind of stuff. A sample:
And, they know how to do twitter:
