Narcos is a crime thriller detailing the real life story of Columbian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Escobar is widely known for being the most notorious cocaine dealer of the 70's and 80's. The series begins with Escobar's less than savory life in prison, but quickly turns into a full fledged crime story. This show deals with the intricacies of Escobar's evasions of members of various law enforcement agencies. The show is almost entirely based on the true story of Escobar's rise and subsequent fall from power. Although some conversations and specifics are fictionalized, the truth of the story makes it informational as well as entertaining. Taking on a gritty appearance and style, the story explores the harsh side of organized crime. Back alley bribes, political assassinations, and extortion are just a few of the subjects analyzed. By taking a more personal approach, this allows the viewer to witness the horrendous acts of Escobar first-hand. After a few episodes, the series starts to see a focus on the workings of the Drug Enforcement Agency and Central Intelligence Agency. Escobar avoids the consequences of his drug crimes through bribery, murder, and political manipulation. Narcos is a realistic and startling depiction of the cocaine traffic of the 80's. In specific, it captures the essence of who Pablo Escobar was and the horrifying things he did to remain powerful. Through manipulation and the lack of morals, Escobar escalates his crimes as the show continues. From his personal life to his empire's inner workings, the series gives a look at a man rich with exploitable power. Ultimately, it shows the viewer what happened to one man who took the drug world by storm.
