YOUR NEW FAVOURITE SHOW
BECAUSE THERE WEREN’T ENOUGH TV SERIES TO GET STUCK INTO.
Hollywood sure loves a drug lord. Whether it’s Pacino’s Tony Montana collapsing into a mountain of Charlie in Scarface, Johnny Depp as famed cocaine mule George Jung in Blow, or a crazy-haired Javier Bardem in 2013 car crash The Counselor. Now Netfix is joining the party, with new series Narcos. While modern-day Mexican cartels regularly hit the news for their atrocities and earnings – a reported $60bn a year between them – it was Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar who kicked it all off. Becoming rich off the US appetite for cocaine, he was soon a millionaire, then a billionaire – before becoming one of the most powerful men on the planet. Executive produced by Eric Newman ( Children of Men) and starring a raft of multinational talent, Narcos chronicles the heady days of the ’80s drug cartels. You’ll be hooked in no time. Narcos is airing on Netfix now Launched in 2004, British company Rapha spotted a gap in the market for cool cycle wear that you’d actually want to be seen in – whether you’re a pro rider or an amateur peddler.
