violent but exciting and worthy

the show is great it holds you at the edge of your sit. It does have violence but not as much as peaky blinders, or breaking bad. It has explicit sex and the main theme is drug traffic

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

This well-produced adaptation successfully weaves three separate narratives together as it follows the tumultuous international transit of a single cocaine shipment from start to finish. As each story moves forward, it reveals a web of kingpins, brokers, fixers, and other operatives that form part of the far-reaching and complicated global drug trade. Though few are innocent, many characters are interesting and multilayered, as they work to reconcile their personal lives while preserving power and profit. These intimate looks into their lives make it possible to forget that they are all playing a part in a vicious criminal enterprise where few can be trusted, and which inflicts endless collateral damage. But ZeroZeroZero never stops underscoring how the narcotics industry has become an intrinsic part of our international economic system, and how many people from around the world are involved in it. It's entertainingly addictive to watch, but also very disturbing.
