If you're a fan of crime dramas like Narcos and Queen of the South, then this six-episode limited series about "Cocaine Godmother" Griselda Blanco should be a must watch for you. Released at the end of January, Griselda has become a big hit for Netflix and dominated the Top 10 chart since its debut.

Sofia Vergara truly gets to display her dramatic acting chops in the show as the woman who would redefine the cocaine industry in Miami. The show has received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, with lots of people praising Vergara's performance specifically. The story follows Griselda's rise in the Miami drug scene as she tries to raise her three kids while also juggling an ever-growing drug empire.

Not long after she starts making big waves, a female detective begins hunting her down and Griselda becomes paranoid that someone close to her might be an informant. It's her paranoia that eventually causes Griselda's downfall and the show chronicles her rise and fall. In real life, Griselda Blanco was murdered by an unknown assailant while in Colombia in 2012.

Verdict: WATCH
