Netflix is a gateway streaming service. First, you subscribe to Netflix, and then you get addicted to the original content, and then you find yourself paying for Hulu, Amazon, HBO, Showtime, the list goes on and on. It’s kind of like in Narcos, the mega-addictive show about Pablo Escobar, Mexico’s (in)famous drug lord. If you binged your way through season two in the blink of an eye (same), you’re probably looking around desperately for your fix. We’ve got you covered. Here are four more shows to help you bide your time until season three. We may be enablers, but we aren’t sorry.
IF YOU LIKE DOUBLE LIVES IN THE DRUG WORLD, WATCH POWER
In this 50 Cent-produced epic, a former NYC drug kingpin hopes to leave his past behind him as he opens up a new nightclub. However, once you’re involved in the drug ring, it’s near impossible to drag yourself out. You can stream it now from Starz. (Photo via Starz)
IF YOU LIKE PABLO ESCOBAR, WATCH ESCOBAR, EL PATRON DEL MAL
If you find Pablo Escobar a fascinating character, get more of what you love in the Spanish telenovela all about his life. It’s similar to Narcos, just with a different cultural perspective. You can watch the first season from Netflix. (Photo via Caracol Television)
IF YOU LIKE DRUG TRAFFICKING, WATCH WEEDS
Just because you live in a white picket fence community doesn’t mean that you’re immune to the intrigue of the drug world. This Showtime show follows Nancy as she starts selling weed to support her family after her husband’s death. You can stream Weeds from Netflix and Showtime. (Photo via Showtime)
IF YOU LIKE WORKING AROUND THE LAW IN THE ’80s, WATCH HALT & CATCH FIRE
The ’80s were a different time. If your favorite part of Narcos is watching characters from the past skirt the law, you’ll love this gripping show about a group of computer developers who will do anything for innovation. You can stream the show from Netflix. (Photo via AMC)
