There is no denying that the television landscape is changing. Gone are the days of scrolling through Channel Guides, setting up the TiVo or planning a night around a certain show. Now, it’s all about wi-fi, binge watching and the almighty stream. As in, on-demand digital streaming services from carriers like Amazon, Hulu and Netflix.
Original series like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are taking the TV world by storm. And rightly so; as they’re smart, well-produced and instantly available at the click of a button. But it’s important to note that several Latino streams are making waves too and we’ve got a quick breakdown of our personal faves.
A perfect selection for binge-watching in the man cave, Netflix’s Narcos blends elements of Scarface, Traffic and all of your favorite “bad guy drug dealer” movies. This one happens to focus on real-life kingpin Pablo Escobar and his rise to the top of the Medellin Cartel. As expected, Narcos has its share of violence, smuggling and hardcore suspense, making it a compelling watch from moment one to the cliffhanger season finale. Our big gripe is that we’ve only got 10 episodes to chew on. But according to the press, Seasons two and three should be queued up before the end of the year.
