Thursday Night TV and Open Thread
Muno2 TV has been replaying episodes of the Colombian series Pablo Escobar: El Patron del Mal every weeknight at 8 and 11 pm. It's really good. It's in Spanish but has English subtitles. Andres Parras, the actor who plays Pablo Escobar really looks like him. (Many of the cast members resemble their real life role models, see pictures here.) You can also watch all 74 episodes online. It was produced in Colombia in 2012 by Caracoal TV and is fact-based -- but entertaining. It's not a documentary.
In real life, last week Hugo Aguilar, the former police commander led the operation that killed Pablo Escobar in 1993, was sentenced to 9 years in prison for accepting money from the paramilitary group AUC, United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia . Here's a picture of him with the Escobar's body.
This is an open thread, all topics (except Zimmerman) welcome.
