Netflix recently dove back into the sordid underworld of crime lords, cartels and callejeros with its newest installation in the Narcos series: Narcos: Mexico, an intimate look into a world of money, murder and marijuana. Based on real events in the 1980s and starring Michael Peña (Ant-Man & The Wasp) and Diego Luna (Rogue One), N:M explores the disorganized origins of the Guadalajara Cartel, from its roots as an uncooperative collection of neighboring districts into the unified empire it would become under Sinaloan ex-cop Felix Gallardo (Luna). It also covers the trials of DEA Agent Kiki Camarena (Peña), who feels held back in his current station and decides to take a new post -- one that moves his family from California to Guadalajara itself.
