He started as a small entrepreneur who saw an opportunity. Slowly he grew into what he never could imagine. Like he himself describes cocaine: “All natural, organic and healthy, very good.” In Narcos we are following Colombian narcotics distributor Pablo Escobar from Medellin on his journey to power. In the journey we also face the fear of losing the power. With those forces like the DEA agent Murphy who is narrating the series you see how power can be an obsession and money can’t do nothing anymore. Like he says himself: “I am not a rich person. I am a poor person with money.”
