When the season 4 of Narcos came out, I was a bit skeptical considering the fact that none of the characters I adored before were there. I promised myself that I would just watch it only for ten minutes. Despite that, I ended up binge watching the whole show. That’s what Narcos is all about. It’s not about the story, it’s not about the director, it’s not about the character, it’s about the franchise as a whole. Year after year they are able to create something so simple yet fantastic. Netflix deserves all the praise. So, I decided to compile the best Narcos Mexico quotes for you guys.
