If you were a fan of Narcos on Netflix then it’s a must you check out El Chapo. Like Narcos, El Chapo is the story of the rise and fall of one of the worlds most iconic drug lords. I’m about 5 episodes into the season and so far I can tell you this. El Chapo is definitely worth watching. With that said Narcos is still better in many ways. Narcos had better casting, probably a bigger budget and much better overall filmmaking. El Chapo, though very entertaining, seems like it was put together quickly to beat out other companies and be the first to tell the violent story of Joaquin Guzman. It’s production feels amateur at times and some story elements seem a bit rushed. It doesn’t hold a candle to Narcos, but it’s still a great show and extremely fascinating. I recommend you check it out.
