The name Mexico
Does it ring a bell?
How about “Narcos”?
How about Escobar?
Or “Juan Pablo Gaviria Escobar”?
Aaahhhh…. how about that?
It sure does to me!
There is so much I have been told about these three names
They had a lot going down back in the day, in Mexico.
And by that, I mean A LOT!!!
Some people prefer to call Escobar the world’s best drug lord ever
Others say he was the best boss ever
Some others say he was a good father and family man
Others say he was the worst piece of shit of his kind
Others say he was the most brutal human being they had ever met
One thing is for sure….
His son, Juan Pablo Escobar Jr. aka Sebastian Marroquin has felt the brunch of his father’s actions
He shared with us recently how he had to distance himself away from the family name
But that didn’t hold for long
Till he decided to take it all back!!!
A few years later
After all that went down
The entertainment and television industry came knocking on doors, numerous times,
To tell the story of the narcos
And that’s where the original Narcos came to be…on Netflix, for example
And on other networks, as well
Once the original story was done and covered,
Netflix decided it wasn’t really enough and so
They recently came up with the script turned what would have been the script for the fourth season of Narcos; for what we have now called the Mexican version of these narcos
Affectionately named Narcos Mexico
Which we are going to talk about today!
There is one name that caught my eye
Right away from season 1
This young man always had a thing for being a “shot caller”
The biggest one he could ever be
And I love that about him
He was so ambitious and strategic!
Well, that was right before it all got to his head
Word has it that he was the most powerful drug trafficker Mexico had ever seen
And also, by the time of his arrest in Guadalajara on the 8th of April in 1989, he was the number 1 fugitive in the country
And guess what, he was taken in without a single shot being fired!
Life is strange when you least expect it to be, right?
I mean, Miguel was a policeman before getting into this life
He was quite the ambitious type
Always looking for ways to getting to the top
And so, his thoughts came to be when he organized himself and others to form what has now come to be called the Guadalajara cartel
The DEA has plans of it’s own as well
They send in Kiki Camarena to solve this puzzle
He gets it right….getting them much more valuable intelligence than they have had in such a long time of tracking and following these guys
Its unfortunate that he loses his life for it and his death wasn’t in vain, though.
Get ready for some cat-and-mouse games
~ I can’t wait for the next season ~
