Narcos: Mexico exploring the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.Written by

During most of the show, soldiers and police use M16A1 rifles, but there are events in which the M4A1 Carbine is being used by multiple characters. The show is set in the early 80's, the M4 first went into service in 1994. See more »
The drug war continues only the venue is different!
If we say that this series is addictive like drugs, we don't say wrong. I'd say it's really compatible with the name of the show. It is very enjoyable to watch such a drug war in Mexico after Colombia. No one from the old cast. We see a new battle with a completely new cast. I think the idea of adapting the same issue to another country is good. After beginning with Pablo Escobar in Colombia, "Narcos" shifted to the Cali cartel, an equally colorful and bloodthirsty bunch. Now we see the Mexican drug lord Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo. Also named as El Padrino, Felix Gallardo is a citizen of El Chapo. Both of them are from Culiacan. Though the episodes are lengthy, it's a absorbing story. Historically we may know the outcome but Narcos: Mexico has an interesting story. Definitely worth watching. 9/10
