Narcos: Mexico Diego Luna & Michael Pena on the complexities and modern parallels in Season 1

Diego Luna & Michael Pena are interviewed for the Netflix American drug crime TV series Narcos Mexico, created by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro. It was originally set to be series 4 of Narcos, but has been set up as a companion/sister show focusing on an undercover investigation into the illegal drug trade in Mexico rather than the Pablo Escobar cartel in Columbia. The series stars Ant-Man’s Michael Peña and Star Wars Rogue One’s Diego Luna, Matt Letscher, Tenoch Huerta, Joaquín Cosío, Teresa Ruiz, Alyssa Diaz, and José María Yazpik. They talk about binge-watching, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and how they establish the world of Narcos. They also talk about this being a new beginning and how this new series fits in the Narcos timeline. Deigo Luna talks about the complexities of the situation - the politicians, the police and the military on both sides of the border - affect the world we're living in today. Pena talks about the legacy of 'the mob' and how we're seeing a return to that in the modern world - notably Donald Trump's wall. The series goes into depth about the nuances of the problems concerning the drugs trade and the health issues. PLOT: Witness the birth of the Mexican drug war in the 1980s as a gritty new "Narcos" saga chronicles the true story of the Guadalajara cartel's ascent.

Having Hispanic parents who were in their 20’s around the 80’s , they hardcore spoiled everything before 30 mins of the 1st episode.-.- still an amazing series!

The best parts in Narcos this season were Michael Peña, Diego Luna, Guest appearances by Pablo and Cali, and of course, the tiddies on rafa’s girlfriend.

*Narcos Mexico was amazing!* I am a huge fan of both these actors and they didn't disappoint. *Great Series.*

I cried when they found kiki smh I was telling myself I knew how all this was gonna end but still tore my heart
Kirsten Agla
Kirsten Agla:
Loved the series, but felt that they wrote the character Kiki as very one dimensional - as a viewer I didn't care much about him or his family. I was rooting for the bad guys in many scenes because of how well Diego Luna's character Felix was written, plus he is a great actor. However, the Texan DEA agent Jaime was well performed, so he helped me sympathize more with the DEA side. Will definitely watch the season again!

I'm just watching each interview with Michael Pena to feel a little better after that devastating end.
This is an amazing season.
I already knew these actors were going to be brilliant and they did not disappoint

Kiki do you love me
Diego Luna’s character is like a modern day Michael Corleone. Amazing!
Hector Knoxx
Hector Knoxx:
I love how Diego Luna is clear that this show relates highly with todays Mexico. As of matter of fact, both actors are in acceptance that this show is really showing it how it is. But there’s a few times where you got to realize, not everyone knows this. It’s information and history that isn’t being told.
Ruben Lopez
Ruben Lopez:
My favorite part was Pablo's scene he was like "oh you made a deal with rhem yea and so did we hijo de puta" but this season blew 3 outta the water and i need more

Eduardo de jesus:
Trust me after this season of Narcos Mexico. I recommend to watch El Chapo on Netflix. You will see a broad picture of Mexican cartels it picks up from the fall of kiki and the turning of caro Quintero and don neto.
Vicki DURON:
These two guys were great. I like both of them a lot.
I finished watching it today, it was really good, so sad at the end?! ... 😀 🔥

I would like to note that Narcos is not only one of my top 3 favorite shows, but I have also not once skipped it's intro.
Isaiah Olvera
Isaiah Olvera:
“Noting is going to stop unless there is no market.
If we keep seeing this issue as a security issue, then we are never going to fix it.
It’s a health issue”

Some wise words. I appreciate how woke Luna is to the real world and how he isn’t just some actor who played a role but a person who recognizes issues for what they are and doesn’t feed into media perspectives.
J Schultz
J Schultz:
Using the same narator was great because he mentioned kiki in the other narcos.
Eric Mutua

Man this is a phenomenal season
J Schultz
J Schultz:
I finished it. I love how the actors who played columbian cartels were the same actors.
Unfortunately, México 🇲🇽 is a Narco country, I'm not proud of it, I really disagree all the situation that happens nowadays...

Every single day someone die about a Narco issues
Angry F'n Luiz
Angry F'n Luiz:
Glorifying drug cartels is all too easy from the comfort of your homes. Except for my cousins that have to pay quotas to not suffer extortion.

It’s whatever, anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving to the drug addicts, degenerates and regressive recipients.

Y’all tha real MVP ;)

Haks Hustle:
I thought that the season would be about Amado/ Lord of the skies, he was a big influence and part of the drug trade both in Mexico and Colombia but I liked this season even though it wasn't really about him.
i binge-watched this show, started Sat 10 AM to Sun 2 AM DONE! I was so hooked, what an amazing show!

Diego luna y joaquin cosio lo mejor de la serie, también se la sacó tenoh huerta.
Bacon Is Life
Bacon Is Life:
This season was fantastic it was slow paced compared to previous seasons but it makes sense why it also felt like it went by fast at the same time. It's weird I can't explain it but I really enjoyed it and more importantly made me want more. I need more.
Never have I ever fantasized about being with a deadman and a corrupt drug lord at the same time. My brain is so confused.

I think the series "El Chapo" is far more glamourizing than Narcos.

After watching Narcos Mexico, I can't get the image of Diego Luna as Felix Gallardo singing Drake's "In My Feelings" =_____=
Watched the whole series! Love it 10/10
In the end of Season 3, they made it look like Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) will be also in this chapter.. disappointing

Brilliant enjoyed it immensely
I love this new installment. I was a little apprehensive at first but it really won me over. So right about hanging in there for the first 3-4 episodes. It pays off. Great cast. Beautifully executed. Easily up to par with the Columbia seasons.

Season 5 or 6 Tijuana or gulf cartel season 7 Sinaloa cartel
I like how the interviewer was like, “comedy can sometimes be hard. There can be pressure to make people laugh” and then Michael Peña was like, “nah. I think comedy is also hard. Theres pressure to make people laugh”...
