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. As well as of­fer­ing shoes, cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories, they’ve just teamed up with the finest Ital­ian eyewear mak­ers for a new range of sun­glasses. Light­weight, hand­made in Italy and boast­ing Carl Zeiss lenses, they come in three colours and are avail­able now. Rapha sun­glasses, $305; rapha.cc
