    Who is your favorite drug cartel, mafia, mob, enforcers. gangs and whatever other names they call it in movies and TV shows?

    The Salamanca family from Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul is my all time favorite.

    I guess maybe the Tony Montana / Frank Lopez / Alejandro Sosa organization.

    Salamanca couldn't make it past errand boy assassin in that cartel.

    So I'm going with the Medellín Cartel from Narcos. I know it's real but it was still a TV show, Pablo Escobar was running shit.

    The Greek in The Wire. Any real source would be nearly faceless. For some of the cartels in Mexico, no one knows what the leader looks like.

    Grand had a pretty good career, kind of racking up the roles like Miguel Nunez and Larry B. Scott.

    Down to lip syncing as DeBarge or Ready for the World or whoever the band was at the end of Streets of Fire.

    I thought the Salamacas were portrayed better in Better Call Saul. I might be biased though because I think BCS is written better than Breaking Bad for the most part. The writing has a softer touch.

    I never knew he played two different detectives in Lethal Weapon 1 & 2, always assumed it was the same character

    My real answer is James Garner in THE GREAT ESCAPE.

    According to the rules, it's hands down Cormac McCarthy's cartel.
