Narcos, Genre: Action, Season 1 complete, 10 episodes
Rating: 7 out of 10 stars
Why it’s rated high: Narcos is a good show where bad men do bad things and good people get hurt. Netflix takes on the infamous Medellín drug cartel in “Narcos,” which follows the rise and fall of Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Drug Enforcement Agency agents hunting him. The story is told largely from the points of view of Escobar, played by Brazilian actor Wagner Moura, and U.S. DEA Agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), on opposite sides of what would become an all-out war.
