'Narcos: Mexico' Season 2: Quavo gets fans 'high on his own supply' and Santaolalla's music is intoxicating
The Netflix crime-drama has left most fans in awe with its crisp storytelling that unravels in each episode
'Narcos: Mexico' Season 2 gets into a gritty groove right from its onset. Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) is a free man even after his involvement in DEA Agent Kiki Camarena's brutal torture and murder. Enters DEA Agent Walt Breslin (Scoot McNairy), who sets on a mission to capture the drug lord.
With all the chest-puffing DEA agents, corrupt cops, and shady CIA middlemen, there is bewildering insecurity brewing in the Plaza System. At the end of the deadly game of chess, one emerges as a sore loser and another, a cocky winner. It is up to you to fit them in brackets.
The Netflix crime-drama has left most fans in awe with its crisp storytelling that unravels in each episode.
"Wow! #NarcosMexico2 is soooo great! I’m so happy that it’s back. It’s like Sicario with MCU-style crossovers," one fan gushed on Twitter. Another posted, "I enjoyed #NarcosMexico S1, but I had a feeling adding Scoot McNairy would make S2 REALLY GOOD, and so far, I am entirely right."
"Thank you, #NarcosMexico, for letting me watch Scott McNairy on-screen again. I love everything he's in," one fan wrote and another got carried away by Teresa Ruiz's performance, "When Isabella was wiping away her makeup I felt like she was washing away her war paint and I felt that on a spiritual level."
What seems to have struck most eyes, however, is Quavious Marshall aka Quavo's cameo in the series. A member of the trap music trio Migos, the rapper's dialogue, "Don't get high on your own supply," is making all the noise on social media.
"1st black man to introduce crack to Mexicans," one fan posted, and another said, "They really got Quavo on this. I am crying." Another viewer posted: "Imma tell you like a bad bitch told Tony...DON’T GET HIGH ON YOUR OWN SUPPLY.”
A few, however, were disappointed by his performance: "I’m watching @NarcosNetflix season 2, love the show! Quavo, though WORST CHOICE EVER!! He sucks as an actor, his look doesn’t even match the era! Man #Netflix you really let me down, the show didn’t need that attention," one tweet read and another said, "I don’t even think it’s Quavo that bugs me. It’s the fact he looks like a time-traveling drug dealer."
One fan didn't like his costumes and posted, "Quavo on #NarcosMexico is so out of place. He’s not even wearing the right wardrobe."
Most of all, it was the music that struck the right notes. "Gustavo Santaolalla. Somehow, his music is calming. You may be familiar with his works in The Last of Us franchise and #NarcosMexico," one tweet read and another said, "As soon as I saw that the majestic #GustavoSantaolalla was on #NarcosMexico I knew it was gonna be a good second season."
"Something I really appreciate about #NarcosMexico is how often they pleasantly surprise me with their music choices. I mean, Nisi Dominus? Really? Such a fantastic choice to end the first ep of S2," another fan wrote.
Overall, 'Narcos: Mexico' has managed to steal all the attention and fans can't stop talking about it. "Amado and Acosta's drug-trafficking adventures and bromance > your valentine's date," one fan posted. Another said, "I’m going to say this once...but the new season of Narcos... My guy, my girl, my child, my pet, everyone go watch it right now!"
