Caught the first couple of episodes of this today and it surprisingly good especially considering its a BBC show
Cilian Murphy and Sam Neil head the cast about gangsters in Birmingham just after the first world war.
Worth a watch I'd say, hopefully won't turn to shite
season 2 starts up tonight in UK, was thinking about watching is it good? Like Downton Abbey + Boardwalk Empire?
Saw this article on my news feed which peaked (HAH) my interest, didn't even hear about this show but its got some great actors
Peaky Blinderss fearless. - BT
So the first season is on Netflix now and branded as a "Netflix original". I watched it over the past few days and it's definitely interesting. Not the most enthralling show but the characters, acting and story are compelling enough to keep watching.
I'm only 2 episodes deep but I'm loving it, Cillian Murphy is amazing in it and fully capable of carrying the show on his back alone.
I got halfway through the first episode but found the music to be way to distracting. It's not bad music, it just feels really out of place. I'll give it another go eventually.
I watched the whole season and I enjoyed it. It was cool to see the ScareCrow in a different role. It reminded me of the Black Donnellys, but different time and obviously English instead of Irish American, still it reminded me of that.
Just finished season 1, enjoyed it very much.
Looking forward to season 2, with Tom Hardy joining the cast!Spoiler:
Season 2 is on Netflix.
Got a netflix account. Watched both seasons of this show on a recommendation from a friend. This show is like crack.
Will be itching till season 3 comes out.
Season 2 was good. Not as good as season 1, because I think it dragged a little on episodes 4 and 5, and Tom Hardy was underutilized, but still an amazing show.
Binge watched two seasons. Sam Neill is pretty good but Cillian Murphy's acting is imo on a stellar level. He just happens to have that face, where he can be all seducing and at the same time quite threatening. Season 2 was less surprising and got a couple of letdowns but Tom Hardy was pretty awesome. Peaky Blinders sadly got the "lol uk tv show" seal but I think it's pretty good. It's not Utopia tier, but has the same quality level than The Shadow Line. UK TV stuff is definitely going places. Lads.
Tom Hardy made season 2 for sure. I hope his character sticks around for season 3
He plays a mean jew.
Also surprised that they played up the gypsy link to Charlie Chaplin without mentioning that Chaplin was a gypsy. He was actually born in the Black Patch.
He did mention that Chaplin is a gypsy. He specifically mentioned he was born in the Black Patch.
Finally finished the series, i really though that was it for Tommy. They had me fooled. Not sure how I feel about Thomas Shelby, super-spy. but whatever, great show, great acting, I can't wait for more.
Anyone have any news for this? I really liked the show but haven't heard anything about a 3rd season or if there will even be one.
Season 3 is up on Netflix.
Funny that this just got a new season. I marathon'd the first season this past weekend and really enjoyed it.
Watching season 3 right now. My heart is racing.
WTF just happened at the very end of the season? Well season 4 should be pretty epic.
Great season. It's going to be a long wait.
I felt he was giving up the family/gang to keep himself out of jail so he could properly work out whatever this deal is with whoever is higher in power than the anti-commies.
