Yeah I watched the 1st episode last night of 9.Guero Palma is there and the 3 originals from Guadalajara that started it.You can relate to lots in the series from years of reading BB,a lot comes back that you think you've forgotten.My son was amazed that I knew who all the guys were whereas I didn't in Narcos that we had watched together.
lol compared to señor de los cielos this carillo is a wuss and a nerd. kind of disappointing that they never mentioned the gulf cartel , z or beltranes (chapo's cousins). i wonder in the next episodes are they are going to show how he tried to get in NL with los tejas? and the 2005 z vs cds war?
Yeah its all going to be in next seasons. We know that because they go through Chapos whole life as seen in first episode when it shows him bieng fingerprinted in prison wearing blue like when he got popped in Los Mochis. This series is amazing so far. Why did they leave out the Arellanos name tho? That and El Mayo is just called "Don Ismael" from Sinaloa, everyone else is named as is. Great series, very well filmed and great acting. The part where Clavel kills Guero Palmas kids was bone chilling. Very sad.
This season is only like 1985 - 1993 or so. So z weren't around yet. But yea I was disappointed about no Beltran.. maybe they're still just Amado sicarios for now and ain't been introduced. Also diverged from reality in that Mayo was most definitely compas with Amado, and Amado was probably atleast using Chapo to keep Arellanos at bay in real life too.
How accurate is the way that the Guadalajara Cartel's structure is portrayed? Seems a bit like a mafia family in that Miguel is the top boss/oversees the entire cartel, Amado is #2/underboss and running Juarez operations, and the Arellano-Felix bros, Mayo, etc. are bosses/capos of their own territories that are factions within the overall Guadalajara Cartel.
Re: Heads Up: The Netflix El Chapo Series Released
To be honest I haven't watched all of the series, but Gutierrez Rebollo was the most famous narco general, with a character in Traffic modeled after him, and he is repeatedly named in reality in stories covering ACF.
Those that say, don't know. Those that know, don't say.
jail scene was the worst ever it was like watching locked up abroad reruns !more police and government coruption would have made it a knockout series .a jail guard with a stick giving chapo a hard time i wonder why they called it the golden cage ?
