NARCOS [NETFLIX]

Post by Yvanilde Panont on Tue Sep 20, 2016 7:59 pm

The series Narcos make us discover the most famous of cocaine trafficker of Colombia, Pablo Escobar.
Plunged in the 80s, the history is told by an American agent of DEA, Steve Murphy thrown to his pursuit.

For me, Narcos one of the best series from all points of view and I strongly recommend it.

  First, Steve Murphy's thought are added in the series and gives us the impression of being in his head.
  Then, the series is situated between the documentary and the fiction. Archival images are integrated in the series and we dive into the historical reality of Colombia in the late nineteenth century.
  The majority of the dialogues are in Spanish what brings more coherence to the series and is also a good way to feel close to Colombia.
  And finally, the series shows us not only Pablo Escobar as the most famous drug trafficker or the most bloodthirsty man but also as the man of family, the man close to her mother, the very loving man of his wife, the affectionate father of two children and the hero of the poor people.

Now, we must be patient and wait in September, 2017 for the season 3 !!

Lots of my students have recommended this to me. My question to you is: Is there too much Spanish? Will I spend my time reading the subtitles?

It's a good question !! Indeed, the majority of dialogue is in Spanish. For me it is not a problem because I watch the serie in English with French subtitles but I understand.. The advantage is that it improves in English but also in Spanish.
Two birds with one stone !

The series is really nice to follow, i watched the first season, and I will wait for the holidays to watch the season 2. But to stay in the drug traffick theme, there is no better series than Breaking Bad. But in any case flo, i recommend you to see this series.

I watch the first season of breaking bad but i don't like it :/ I know it's strange but i don't have particularly reason, i find the serie a little slow.

I love this serie. I think that's one of my favorite.
What I like the most is the fact that it is in English and in Spanish, like that I can practice both my English and Spanish.
I also like the fact that it is a real story and that they added real photos or TV programs to illustrate everything.
I highly recommend to watch this serie, for cultural knowledge and to spend a good time =]
