This article features my fourth entry for the 5 Day GIF Challenge: When you're binge-watching a show but KNOW you should go to sleep!

My Latest Netflix Binge: Narcos

You know that feeling, when you're just about to begin an epic binge-watch with a new series? You feel like you're about to take on the world, and do something truly great. That's how I felt when I finally sat down to watch Narcos, at least.

I didn't even have to finish the first episode to know that I was in for something great. The opening credits for the show let me know right then and there that Narcos was going to be something truly great.

But then I DID finish the first episode and all of the wildest dreams were confirmed. I knew that I wasn't wasting my time and I was excited to continue with my Netflix binge.

I'm not even looking at the clock anymore. I'm 3 episodes in and I'm loving every second of it. "Are I still watching?" YES, Netflix, I am thank you.

The suspense.

The occasional witty humour.

The action sequences

And the feels...

Still as good as the show was at around 3 am I did have to try and force myself to stay awake.

I thought about calling it quits, going to sleep and just finishing the rest of the episodes the next day. That's when I heard my sensei's voice in the background and mustered the strength to move forward.

So I did. I kept on watching and the the drama only continued to heighten. The story kept on getting deeper and needless to say:

After the credits rolled on the final episode I was experiencing a true flurry of emotions. I was curious about what was to come in season 2.

Overjoyed that Narcos lived up to my expectations.

But more than anything, I wanted more and I didn't want to wait.

If you haven't checked out Narcos already this show is a MUST watch you guys. Check out the trailer below, and stream the first season in it's entirety on Netflix NOW.
