Goofs

Major Wysession is actually a Colonel. Early on in the season, his eagle rank insignia is properly adhered to his uniform shirt collar. Later on, it is woefully misplaced, in two ways. A United States Marine Colonel would never have his rank insignia, or any other medals improperly placed on his uniform. See more »

Netflix To The Rescue
29 August 2015 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Incidentally, I saw an ad for Narco on YouTube, and instead of skipping the ads like I normally do, I played this one out because I was genuinely excited for what I was watching. Instantly I jumped onto Netflix and I was not disappointed. This is a truly gripping show, one of the best I've seen this year. The characters and acting are done well and the storyline moves at a fast enough pace to get your adrenalin pumping for the whole episode. My only fear was that it would be too generic of a Crime drama, but those feelings were quickly swept away. This is truly an original and thoroughly planned out TV show with a whole lot of heart.

Maybe the best on Netflix at the moment. Narco doesn't disappoint with any aspect of the show. It's exciting and fast paced, but above all, it makes you want to keep coming back for more.
