This is the far best I have seen. I seriously am looking forward to season2. I have seen many similar to Surviving Escobar Alias JJ and was not satisfy. This is definitely a favourite & is added to my list on Netflix. The main character Popeye ( Juan Urrego) is a fantastic actor keep it up. Netflix should add more of his other shows. ?? #5star all the way.
Conspiracy, deceit, survival, instinct, planning, corruption everything was so so good I watched it straight 8/9 hours..too too good
LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW!!! I NEVER sit and watch tv for hours but I literally could NOT turn my tv off!!!! Is there going to be a season two?!
Literally loved everything about this show. PERFECT NETFLIX SERIES. Honestly can’t really sit down and watch TV for hours at a time, but this changed everything. Literally watched this for hours on end. Best series ive ever seen.
This is a MUST watch!! Really amazing acting, good soundtrack, lots of action and well written drama. The best of all I've seen.
Omg I absolutely loved this series!
Extraordinary show!!!! Casting was perfect for each character. Fell in love with Juan Pablo Urrego, who portrays J.J.
Enjoyed all 60 episodes last year, and watching it over at this time. Very good acting ! Looking forward to the 2nd season.
Most addicting storyline I’ve ever seen. It’s like a book you can’t put down, stayed up two or three hours later than usual mesmerized. Exceptional casting and actors.
Totally hook now my wife is hook watching this all night long.
Great acting . Was consumed by this show... Hope/can't wait for season 2
Addicting Excellent series. Great Screenplay and actors especially JJ. Good job Netflix. Couldn't wait to watch it everyday. It completely consumed me.
better than the other movies on this subject. couldn't stop watching and loved the acting and all the scenes.
I think the actors are all amazing and the overall quality couldn't be any better, with the exception of the occasional subtitles that flash by too quick to read; maybe they could fix that. Ana Maria is absolutely beautiful. Can't get enough of that pretty face. Keep the seasons comming. Totally addictive show.
Excelente all the actors and actresses great excelente job
amazing actors and actresses!
Superb acting of each actors especially JJ and Urrego. I had to read the entire time but that didn't take away my enjoyment watching this show. I so love the cast that I found myself googling them
Need a English version.
I LOVED surviving Escobar. It is totally addicting. I am going to watch for a 2nd time. JJ is phenomenal and so are a lot of other characters. Waiting anxiously for Season 2!
Totally addicting. As others have said, be prepared to get nothing accomplished for about 2 weeks. Watched way into the night because I could not turn it off. Would spend the work day anxious to see what new torment was awaiting JJ around the next corner. Dying for Season 2! The writing is superb, the acting is seamless. Loved watching the decade's fashion and technology progress. Appreciate the fact that for such a gritty, tense show, they refrained from gratuitous sex and violence. They allowed events to titillate and progress through the masterful storytelling. I miss you, JJ. Hurry back! A+
I enjoyed it; except the cut aways to the female narrator got on my last nerve. It just seemed like an interruption. And , that Alexandra was so stupid. It was amazing how many clothes she had in that little backpack.... not realistic.
Hope there is another season! Better than Walking Dead!
Watched about 7 times so far!
GREAT series....cant wait for the second season? 5 stars!!
LOVE!! We finished the series and I miss JJ. I love all the drug lord characters.
It's very entertaining. I never want to stop watching and have stayed up late nights cause I couldn't stop binging, and can't wait to start watching the next day. The guy playing JJ is great. Great supporting cast.
Very well done. JotaJota may have been psychopath, but the guy is obviously very intelligent. He wrote the movie script and helped to direct the show. The casting was terrific, and all of the characters are believable. So much gringo money invaded Columbia, it was actually nice to see much of it passed around to everyone.
Great and addicting show. Just finished watching all 60 episodes. 5 Stars.
Amazing acting. Kept me at the edge of my seat. Missing sleep, and binging on this. Omg. Can't stop reading the subtitles. Great picture quality.
Can t stop watching like 4 hrs st a time
excellent, I want to know the names about the full cast
Utterly addictive due to its superb cast and screenplay... a must-see!
So glad series ended. I got nothing done for 2 weeks! Great show!
I think this series is very good.. I'm a big fan of Colombian soap operas and tv series.. Very good actors and plot. Those who don't understand the show look Pablo Escobar and/or Jhon Jairo Velasquez up and they will totally understand what's going on.
Great storyline, unpredictable and kept me on the edge of my seat for all 60 episodes. The acting was truly refreshing and flawless to say the least. The soundtrack was pretty cool. Got to see how beautiful Colombia is from all the aerial shots. Cannot wait for season 2!
I loved this series. Will there be a continuation?
Compelling. Watched it twice!
I have really enjoyed this series. I watch multiple episodes each day because I can't pull myself away. I'm going to be upset when I finish the series.
I think the actor Mr. Urrego acts the great part of Popeye he is a great actor And I also liked the actor that played Ureggo Drug lord in movie did a great job also he's very animated. I n all all the actors all did a good job the plot is great!
Started out with promise.. HORRIBLE acting..horrible storylines.. Miracle 'save the day" occurrences.. I invested 20 episodes waiting for SOMETHING to happen.. just drags.. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.. aside from looking at Nicole Santamaria (hotter than hell).. you really get annoyed with the amateur writing, production and acting. Boooo.. At least Narcos is coming back
This series is incredibly interesting.. it blows my mind to think that these events have actually taken place in real life! Although, I'm wondering how much of the story line is true.. in any case.. VERY fascinating and well told! Juan Pablo did a great job portraying "Popeye.".. I haven't finished the entire series yet, but i wish they would have shown what happened to his wife...
Fascinating story as sad as it was with all the killings I think the actor was exceptional in his role, had me researching and all ??. Excellent
Love it. Very interesting movie/ series. The acting is great especially the main character J.J. Well done.
Greatest series ever! The cast was chosen well and everyone plays their role in a remarkable manner!
