In Touch (USA) - - Slip ups -

Four thou­sand sol­diers, a 250-man team of Colom­bian elite forces, tens of thou­sands of rounds fired, seven dogs and four f---ing he­li­copters. Pablo Es­co­bar was sur­rounded in the mid­dle of nowhere. There’s no way he’s get­ting out of this one… right?” asks Agent Steve Mur­phy ( Boyd Hol­brook) on the grip­ping sea­son two premiere of the crime drama Nar­cos. He soon gets his an­swer: Co­caine king­pin Es­co­bar ( Wagner Moura) has in­deed es­caped the siege in what is deemed one of the big­gest screwups in law en­force­ment his­tory — and the news isn’t go­ing to go over well on the home front with Steve’s wife, Con­nie (Joanne Christie), who has the not-un­rea­son­able be­lief that get­ting kid­napped by a Colom­bian drug car­tel shouldn’t be just an­other day at the of­fice for her hus­band. Pick­ing up on the dra­matic mo­men­tum of the riv­et­ing first sea­son that made Nar­cos the most-watched show on Netflix, the sec­ond sea­son doesn’t suf­fer from the sopho­more slump. View­ers will be hooked and want to binge all 10 episodes!

FRI. 9/ 2, 3 A. M., NETFLIX ★★★★✩

Agent Mur­phy (Boyd Hol­brook) is ea­ger to prove that the DEA can bring in Es­co­bar.
