Narcos, one of Netflix’s classic shows, and one of the early success stories in the streaming series went back to the small screens with Narcos: Season 2 in Mexico, leaving Narcos: Season 3 to be everything.
Because then, Narcos: Mexico has been going everywhere from trends to social media, and it’s justified as the series has a massive, very loyal fan base. Not only that, but all news sites also talk about the second season, although it was just hours, so many fans don’t look for reviews as they are busy looking at the series.
Reasons Why Narcos: Mexico Season 3 Shouldn’t Happen
#1. Poor Accuracy In Narration
Yet comparisons to the series’ accuracy neglect the specific point of view of the narrator— and thus of the show. We do not know exactly who is telling the story of the doomed DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena during the first season. Just at the end of season two, we hear that the chief of Operation Leyenda, the primary investigation into the murder of Camarena, is Breslin.
Far from being a neutral or disinterested group, Breslin has taken Félix Gallardo down because of his loss— his addicted brother suffered from substance addiction years ago. The series also indicates that Breslin’s reports are intelligence briefings, although aimed at the viewer.
#2. Portrayal Of Drug Trafficking
The representation of drug trafficking organizations, whether in news or entertainment, has been the focus of significant government investigation and public debate in Mexico. A vast entertainment industry churns ballads, telenovelas, and films that, some claim, glamorize slavery and encourage the public to associate with violent offenders.
The common importance of this cultural performance in trafficking and production centers, like Sinaloa, is frequently encapsulated under the word narco culture, where drug cultivation has been a major and often the only source of income for poor farmers whose food production has been affected by agricultural modernization.
#3. No Political Consequences
By the end of season two, the Federation disbanded, and the trafficking routes in Mexico were split geographically among the different organizations. In one of the last scenes, when finally Félix Gallardo and Breslin meet, the former predicted that Mexico would soon become a violent country without his leadership.
Yet these statements distort the impression that the horrific violence seen today is not a militarized war on narco-trafficking organizations, but the product of organizational disunity. Such interpretations have no political consequences.
