Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Taco Chronicles is a Mexican-produced, subtitled food docuseries about tacos. Each episode focuses on a different type of taco filling, tracing the history of that filling and how it is served. People are shown casually drinking or smoking, though it is never the focus of a scene. Some of the backstories describe or allude to historical violence and conflicts.
Is It Any Good?
The secret life of tacos is a tantalizing subject, especially when you get an intimate deep dive and backstory into specific types of tacos. Taco Chronicles does a great job of connecting tacos to Mexico's rich cultural history. Yet, between the amount of space given to people saying variations of "tacos are good" and the awkward choices like a voice-over from the perspective of the taco, Taco Chronicles feels like it's only about half-cooked.
