This was fantastic from start to finish, and beautifully filmed. They spent some bread on this one.

Gomorrah fans better get on this shit.

they focus on the structural side more than the people (even though the characters are fully developed)

I kept seeing it at the top of the screen on my Amazon Prime Video app, but I just thought it was some doc. It took boredom and this post for me actually to watch, and I'm glad I did.


I have to say it was heart-wrenching watching all that stuff happen with the Lynwood family, from the pops to Chris and even Emma's emotional journey to a certain extent. But watching Chris and everything that happened to him was just too much, I was rooting for the kid.

Manuel was eviler than the Leyras, but I had to respect the hell out of his gangster.

Stefano was the dumbest dude on earth, he was trying to be tough but didn't have it as grandpa did.

I'm going to need a season 2 in a new local or something, this would just make a great anthology series. Maybe Emma Lynwood would be the central character throughout it since she's the Brooker.

I loved that the show was laser-focused, with all these characters fighting, killing each other, while the powder just keeps moving on. And Harold Torres (Manuel) is a standout, hope to see him in more stuff.

It is shocking how expensive this show must be. Mogwai's score is haunting as one could expect from Mogwai.

I am astounded at the location scouting of this show. It looks SO expensive. There are tonnes of frustrating plot holes that Narcos doesn't suffer from given the historical accuracy of Narcos' stories and characters (even though they also dramatize and create people for entertainments sake). Zero suffers a little from the writing but its still so captivating.

I almost can't stomach the Mexico scenes. It is unrelentingly sociopathic

Im 5 eps in btw

the source material novel. i'm assuming this is a one-and-done kind of show? no further seasons? just curious because i feel like the character development isn't 100% there but it's still a very high caliber and intriguing show and i continue to watch it. i finished episode 6 yesterday myself.

I was more intrigued by Mexico and Italy more than all things Chris and Emma, but I enjoyed them more, the more they weaved everything together.

Emma is a goddamn G. I love how she didn't flinch in that final scene. Salud, girl.

Speaking of G shit, all things Don Minu

The location shooting already mentioned but just outstanding.

Manuel and his crew clearly modeled after Los Zetas. they also popped up under another name in the Chapo series, and I'm sure they'll be in S4 of Narcos mexico, but i love that they dove deeper into their orgins. No idea how accurately based events are being portrayed or if Manuel is based on a real person but definitely not an exaggeration of their violence level

I don't have this above Gomorrah, but that's more about how highly i regard Gomorrah than it is about this show. I don't think Gomorrah used the same flashback device, but it's been a while.

Overall just great though, thanks for the heads up mgmt.

but i kind of left the show wanting more. i definitely feel like there was a lot of back story they could have explored. but the show was visually stunning and well-acted for the most part. great content to watch while stuck in the house these days.

I loved how tight the storytelling was in this. Not a moment wasted. Never a lull. I rather want more than wondering when an episode is going to end.

I just have a couple of questions:

What exactly was the transaction. Did Emma front money? 32 million was the price of the drugs or Emma's cut of it? It seems like a shit ton of drugs and 32M seems like not a lot of money for that amount of drugs.

Homie Harold Torres needs to blow up from this. Not sure he can do English, but regardless I want to see more from him.

I thought the siblings were the weakest part, and they were pretty damn good.
