In between all the nice weather this past weekend we decided to binge-watch a new show: Narcos (imdb | rotten tomatoes), another Netflix joint. It’s not an acting masterclass, but they told the story really well. I remember hearing Pablo Escobar’s name when I was young, but didn’t really absorb much detail about him beyond being a drug lord, so I was really hearing and seeing this fairly unbelievable story for the first time. That’s what made it so compelling. We killed it in three days.
On Monday we decided to watch the first episode of another new show which has just started airing here: Mr. Robot (imdb | rotten tomatoes). I was hooked in the first five minutes.
