Peaky Blinders

Post by brothers » Wed Feb 25, 2015 9:24 pm

My son got me interested in this series. As of now, I have watched Season 1 Episode 1 twice, just to gain a good understanding of what might lie ahead. I am looking forward to more now. Appears to be quite well done from what I've seen. Has anyone else seen it?

Never heard of it, but that says more about me than anything else. Googled it and it gets very good reviews and sounds worthwhile watching. Thanks for the heads up.

It's cleverly done, well written, well cast, well acted and well directed. I've watched Seasons 1,2 now and the only downside for me is I have to activate the closed caption feature to understand what the hell they're saying.

I'm with you on that. I also use the closed caption option.

I don't particularly enjoy binge-watching. I like to ration them out, especially when they're as good as this one. Yes, it's rough and tough, but the characters are intriguing, as well as the politics of the early 20th century, following the war. It keeps me trying to decide where the story's heading next.

Bummer - now I've watched both seasons, waiting for the completion and release of the third and latest season. Apparently there are only 6 shows per season. What's up with that! :D I have become aware that I am not the only one who's in no mood for waiting. C'mon people, speed it up, please!

I recently finished up the 2016 season of Peaky Blinders. Only 6 episodes! I like it a lot, and haven't heard whether there'll be more seasons. I hope so.

It appears that BBC2 has commissioned at least 2 more seasons (4 and 5) of this excellent series. Filming of Season 4 begins in March 2017, for release late in 2017. Season 5, hopefully 2018. If you haven't watched any of this series, start with season 1 and see what I mean. :)
