The Monocle Arts Review - TV: John Doyle: 

John Doyle, Toronto’s television critic for ‘The Globe and Mail’, has the lowdown on the US shows to look out for this August. We investigate the Colombian drug cartels of the 1980s through notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar in ‘Narcos’, then nip over to New York for ‘Show Me a Hero’, which explores racial tension in Yonkers around the same period. Pus: there’s an LA zombie apocalypse in ‘Fear the Walking Dead’.
