Originally intended to be the fourth season of the Netflix original series Narcos, it was ultimately developed as a companion series focusing on the illegal drug trade in Mexico, whereas the parent series centered on the illegal drug trade in Colombia.

Three first episodes form 1 exciting thriller, good night scenes & suspense, a soundtrack reminiscent of Scarface (to which the series refers), excellent duo PENA-the cop & LUNA-the trafficker. === Trois premiers épisodes forment 1 thriller passionnant, de bonnes scènes de nuit, du suspense, une bande-son rappelant Scarface (auquel la série fait référence), excellent duo PENA-le flic & LUNA-le trafiquant. 3,5/5
Sadly my fears were confirmed; what mainly made earlier seens good was the two detectives and escobar. These made the show intriguing. S3 with only one of the three was still good, but this season has nothing of interest.
[1 season] Certainly has its moments, but doesn't even approach the quality of the first 2 seasons of the original series. Rather, it continues on the same path as the 3 season, which sometimes makes the viewer feel nothing much is happening, even if the screen and the story is trying to tell us otherwise. But at least it picks up the pace considerably in the last third of the season.
