I have seen Narcos, El Señor de Los Cielos and right now watching El Patron del Mal, I will check out El Cartel after I'm done with EL Patron.
El Cartel de los Sapos 1 and 2 are some of my favorites. Don't forget the ladies La Reina Del Sur and La Viuda Negra.
I forgot her name but the lady from Viuda Negra - ave Maria! 👌🏻
Griselda Blanco is actual person. Ana Seradilla is the actress.
Yeah that’s who I was thinking of, the actress. And young Griselda was portrayed by Eileen Morena who played young Pati in episode one of El Patron del Mal and the younger sister in Tres Caines.
Much prettier the than the real one, whatever happened there lol.
You should. It pretty much takes place right afterward. Both shows are referenced in ESDLC even though the Cali guys have different names and actors in El Patron del Mal lol.
The book is fantastic but I didnt really like the show because it felt way too much like a Novela, it dragged on for way too long imo, and I don't like how in s2 they start to make up the story instead of following the real events.
I'd recommend the book over the show but I haven't been able to find it in english for the non spanish speakers unfortunately
I’ll have to give it a read for sure then. I have a hard time getting into novelas as well but I liked a lot to the actors in it. They’re better in movies though probably, and there was a movie adaptation as well. That one moved to fast since it was adapting the entire novel lol.
It was okay. I watched it for the translation and to learn their regional Spanish.
Yeah the way they pronounce the s in the middle of a word throws me off lol.
I have only watched 1episode of El Patron del Mar. Is it good? I keep picturing the actor playing Pablo bald and running around in El Cartel.
I haven’t finished El Cartel yet but I also remember Andres Parra in a more comedic role in that one because I saw the movie. The first episode is pretty good because like I said it has Eileen Morena as Pati, and Mauricio Mejia as Pablo who also played Carlos Castaño in Narcos. I liked Andres Parra as Pablo in EPDM but he was rather amusing and I half expected his toupee to fall off in every scene. I do want to finish El Cartel soon because I feel like the characters are a lot more likeable in that one. Everything I learned about being Colombian I learned from Pepe and Fresita, lol. The lover boys of the drug trade, lol.
