After 3 episodes it's not convincing to me.

Griselda and many others do their best, but often it just doesn't work out.

And seriously, a scene where a boss's bodyguard turns against the boss, I've seen that too many times. The switch is also not properly explained afterwards.

RTL news writes: "Neflix viewers blown away by new series with Sofia Vergara.

The actress plays the role of the terrifying drug lord Griselda Blanco and does it so well that she scares viewers."

That could well be the case, but I'm not blown away, on the contrary, I'm actually disappointed.

After the first 2 episodes I still had the hope that it would be something, but it is like "klits klats klandere, from one dead person to the other" without any nuance the story is rammed through "with big steps home quickly"

Here and there a comparison is made with Pablo Escobar's series, completely unjustified, watch those 74 (!) episodes and see that the comparison is completely flawed.

It's actually a shame that they packed the entire story into 6 episodes in Griselda, it's too much and therefore too superficial, 2.5 stars for me.

Mediocre series where the weak direction and lousy camera work are a disturbing factor. Almost every scene is shot in the dark or in backlight, which means that the facial expressions of the actors - if there are any - do not come into their own. Furthermore, the story is told incoherently. Let me give an example: a police officer single-handedly pursues an important drug lord. As a viewer you think, now it's going to be exciting. But suddenly that scene is cut off, only later do we see the officer being congratulated by her colleagues on the arrest of the drug dealer. The whole story hangs together like loose sand. Why all those strange jumps in the story, cut scenes, ambiguities? Not recommended.
