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.

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.

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

Sarah Siddiqui:
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
Diego Luna should be getting an Oscar!!

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.

They were both brilliant in this! Really love how they evolved as actors.

Diego Luna is hot
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!

Took 2 days to watch this AWESOME 10 hour movie.

Vicki DURON:
These two guys were great. I like both of them a lot.
Diego Luna’s character is like a modern day Michael Corleone. Amazing!
J Schultz
J Schultz:
I finished it. I love how the actors who played columbian cartels were the same actors.
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.

why did miguel have to be so greedy?? he had it all! can't wait for season 2
Never have I ever fantasized about being with a deadman and a corrupt drug lord at the same time. My brain is so confused.
Eduardo de jesus
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.

Samuel A:
GOLDEN RULE....4 episodes...u have to give a tv show 4 episodes. after that if you dont like it then dont go further.

Royce Johnson
Royce Johnson:
After binge watching the season I was pretty sure that A. I can speak and understand Spanish and B. I could hold my own in the narco world.
I don't, and I can't.
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”...
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

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 watched one episode a day maybe two gives me tremendous satisfaction
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.
I watched the entire season in 2 days.
Some of the best acting EVER!!! Really high quality stuff to depict a true story like this could not have been easy! All of them fantastic
I just finished season 1. Where are we in relation to the beginning of the Columbia narcos?

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.
Van Paul
Van Paul:
Love the whole cast. Big fan of Don Neto!

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 ;)

Cant wait for the new season to be out!
Boy is this interviewer trying to get them to bash on trump or what? I’m sure they are liberal but they are being classy and as a conservative I can appreciate that. Both of these men are not only outstanding and totally underrated (They should have both received many Oscars by now!) but Were clearly raised well they know how to talk about issues that are near and dear to their hearts without being polarizing love them even more
I worked in these interviews ^^

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

Interviewer kind of gave it away that Kiki isn’t alive so I guess he gets killed in it wish he left that out
You mean the US govt was/is involve with the “lords”? What’s new ...
Gerardo peña
Gerardo peña:
I watched the first season all 10 episodes in one hour
All shows should be watchable in one sitting! it's much better than waiting around once a week for 45 minute show that leaves you hanging in suspense!
