Queen of the South: Season 5 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald This popular drama about one woman's rise to the top of a Mexican drug cartel doesn't skimp on the violence, but it retains a little of its telenovella heritage in its glossy, melodramatic sheen.

Mike G All seasons have great stories lines..first one takes a while to get into the build up but worth it Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review c o Loved the series! I'm not one to partake in bloody or gory movies, but after watching the first few episodes I was hooked. So I had to fast forward, close my eyes, or squint to get through the graphic scenes. All the actors were brilliant (even though I'm mad at a few of them for bad behavior). Sadly, I was so bunched up that I googled some questions and ruined the ending for myself. 🙄 Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review ashley d I liked it better than season 4 but it might be time to rest for these characters. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review joseph o Just finished streaming all five seasons over a two week period, so this review is for all five season of Queen of the South. For a 'narco' show, Queen of the South was average, with good performances for the most part across the board. But the editing, and writing was subpar. Characters came and went with no real purpose, and there were times that I thought I had missed something because the episodes didn't quite fit. But the biggest issue I had with the show, was the way in which the drug trade was portrayed - glamourizing it, and making it seem as though it was an everyday kind of job, and that the killing was so matter-of-fact. Also, the portrayal of almost all of the cops, government agencies, and governmental officials as either corrupt or stupid was not a good look for the show. Having the main culprits (killers) all happy, and living their best life at the end of season five, I guess, somehow made all of the killing, torturing, etc. just go away. Why do writers/producers glorify the drug trade, and it's lifestyle? Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This was my favorite season. I wish there would be a season 6. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Compared to season 1-3 season 5 was the worst.
