The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - TRAVEL FEATURE -

HOP­PING around the var­i­ous rungs of the drug lad­der in 1980s LA, this drama is more a steady slow burn than a com­pul­sive ad­dic­tion, but it re­mains a sat­is­fy­ing Sun­day night de­pend­able. The path that Franklin (Dam­son Idris) is on grows darker tonight as, fol­low­ing the beat­ing and rob­bery last week, he sets out to re­cover his co­caine cash, and take re­venge on the un­known ri­vals who took it. To this end, his friend Leon hooks him up with a lo­cal thug, Karvel, who he en­lists to help track down the thieves, lead­ing to some of the most trou­bling scenes the se­ries has so far pre­sented, and a grim new de­ter­mi­na­tion by Franklin to toughen up. Mean­while, CIA man Teddy be­gins to get antsy when he and his Con­tra con­tact Ale­jan­dro line up an arms deal in­volv­ing US Army rocket launch­ers. Else­where, seek­ing to throw off sus­pi­cion for their heist, Lu­cia, Pe­dro and Oso con­coct a grue­some plan to frame an­other mem­ber of the car­tel, but Oso’s ethics lead to com­pli­ca­tions.
