Peaky Blinders is a show that I’ve given a try while Corona break has been going on. I really didn’t have expectations either way. I know that it was a BBC show but I’ve also heard some good things about it. Let me just say, this is the best TV show I’ve watched in a long time. I have nothing but good things to say about this show. It’s time for Peaky Blinders Netflix review.
The only compliant I have about the show is that each season is only 6 episodes. I could be wrong about this but I think each season is supposed to represent a good chunk of time. There’s a two year gap between each season that gets released. 6 episodes doesn’t seem like enough. Now each episode is about an hour but still. If there was any compliant, it would be that there isn’t enough episodes for each season.
Having said that, it sort of creates an action-packed dynamic. There will be periods that lull you to sleep and then… BAM. I love criminal mastermind shows. This show follows the story of a British mob during the time period shortly after WW2. The story of the family that runs the Peaky Blinders is awesome. I don’t know if this was a real gang or not but it feels like a real story.
I love shows that make you think. The best part of the show is the brilliance of Thomas Shelby who is played by Cillian Murphy. Thomas is the leader of the Peaky Blinders and he’s brilliant. It’s so much fun to watch him think and plan for events to come. His performance alone is worth the price of admission. If you’re looking for a show to watch, I highly recommend Peaky Blinders.
