THE HUNT FOR PABLO!
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!
