Did you come across Narcos Mexico on Netflix?
Narcos Mexico is a thrilling American TV series originally intended to be the fourth season of Narcos.
As you probably know, Narcos is about Colombia and the Medellín Cartel, controlled by Pablo Escobar.
However, Narcos Mexico became a companion series, focused on the drug trafficking in Mexico.
The two series are connected not only because the facts took place in the same period (during the 70s and the 80s), but also through some characters.
This fantastic series is about the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel: Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, known as El Padrino, gathered all the traffickers to build an empire.
Starting from some bad organised cannabis traffickers, he succeeded in shaping a group of people with specific roles within the cartel.
Their reputation and power began to increase until they became one of the most powerful cartels in the world.
The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) sent an American agent, Kiki Camarena, to Mexico in order to fight the Guadalajara Cartel and arrest all the criminals involved.
Kiki moved to Mexico with his family and faced the most complicated assignment ever.
Similarly to Narcos, this series boasts well written characters and an intriguing plot.
