Im currently binge watching it lol. Its good but I don't think its better than the first seasons on Columbia at least not to 5 episodes in. Kiki is really boring to watch imo and Miguel Angel seems a little too soft spoken and weak to be El Padrino but who knows. Where the hell is Mayo btw?
Some things really confuse me in this season. The timeline is all screwed up. Miguel Angel divided up the plazas in 89 but in the show it shows the plazas bieng divided up long before Rafa is arrested and he was arrested in 85!..Miguel Angel moved to Guadalajara in 87 with his family from what it says on wiki but in the show it shows him move there much much earlier and by 85 hes already back in Sinaloa?? Doesn't make sense, why do they mess with the timeline so bad or am I missing something?
@El_Bujo: I think Netflix mainly focus on Chapo Guzman in this and coming season. Maybe there will be a more overall view in the future? There is sure material enough to portrait several cartels rising and falling down. Not to mention the sociological view of the ordinary mexican living through that hell on a daily basis just trying to survive.
As I understand it, Netflix is not saying the series is to be entierly factual, maybe thats just not doable. I also believe Netflix is focused on the mediahypes of those cartelleaders.
For a mexican the series sure is "thin" but for the rest of the world it might be more digestible since there is not so much published about RCQ, Z40 and so on?
