Season 3 is really good. The Cali Cartel is smarter than Escobar, and therefore a more credible adversary for the DEA. The whole season feels a little more refined and elegant. The people are classier, more sophisticated than most of the street thugs around Pablo. One minor quibble. The show misses a bit of the comic relief from Escobar, Jody Moncada and Don Bierna being such idiots at times in Season 2. The Cali Cartel is more corporate, as they were in real life, but also a little less entertaining as villains. Chepe and Pacho are more fun than the Rodriguez brothers, but not quite the level of last season's crew. The Head of Cali Security character is awesome too. Still, awesome show. I am pacing myself because I don't want to blow through the whole season in a single weekend.
