Peaky Blinders is a BBC Show airing on Netflix in America.
The show takes place in post World War I England, and focuses on the gypsy gansters, the Peaky Blinders.
They are ambitious, unafraid, and extremely dangerous, especially when Tommy Shelby, their boss and fearless leader, feels threatened.
“I can charm dogs. Gypsy witchcraft. And those I can’t charm, I can kill with my own hands.” – Tommy
Those are words that the Peaky Blinders live by, as they rule the streets, blinding or killing anyone that dares to stand in their way.
From dealing with the police, Winston Churchill, the Russians, the Italians, the IRA, and anything else you can think of that might stand in their way of pure dominance.
Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby, known previously for Scarecrow in The Dark Knight) is outstanding in his role, really drawing the audience in.
His supporting cast includes Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy in Harry Potter) and Paul Anderson.
Tom Hardy plays a large role starting with Season 2.
The show is 3 seasons in, with only 6-episodes per season, and the average length of 57 minutes.
It has been renewed for seasons 4 and 5.
Overall this outstanding, extremely fast-paced show is a 9.5 out of 10.
