5 reasons you should stop watching Narcos
Nick Brown

‘Narcos’ is historical fiction. The amount of damage cocaine did to citizens in the United States is considerably understated in this series. Of course Colombia is different now. And a good thing. But this is a simplistic criticism. Rather like criticizing ‘The Wire’ for stereotyping Baltimore cops and drug dealers, or damning ‘Deadwood’ for it’s depiction of violent frontiersmen.
