Description

Peaky Blinders is an epic gangster drama set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s. Thomas Shelby controls the Peaky Blinders, one of the city's most feared and successful criminal organisations, but his ambitions go beyond running the streets. Crime pays, business pays better.

Please buy this, as many of you as can, cast your vote for brilliance

I felt many things after the end of the last of these episodes but one was relief that British television has finally made something to equal the excellence of recent American series. How can we supply them all our actors and yet never give our own a vehicle to match their talents? Finally it has come!
Idealism, greed, moral compromise, love, the fast beating heart of the present moment, the visceral rush of violence and pleasure, the after-blasts of war and the industrial revolution's hungry furnace. The black soot of poverty and an old religion. Tommy Shelby moving up towards the surface light of the future through all the hideous corpses of drowned soldiers and the shimmering drift of a wedding shroud, the most beautiful and beautifully acted love story since the feeling I felt when I fell myself.

well produced, but not perfect

Contains excellent actors, great photography, nice stage sets, and a somewhat decent script considering the limited budget TigerAspect and Caryn Mandabach had to spend (~£7.5 million minimum) on season 1. That's more than £1 million per episode and only 8 weeks total of shooting time. You certainly can't expect Boardwalk Empire quality ($65 million for season 1, $20-30 million for the pilot alone). However, Otto Bathurst and crew did a fine job trying.

Only real issue would be the music. It's not even an issue of being modern music, but half of it didn't even fit the scenes. It makes the entire production disjointed and pulls the viewer away from paying attention. Someone previously mentioned it's Tarantino-esque, but if that's the case then it was a real sloppy attempt. My guess is they decided to scrimp and save on post production.

Without a doubt this show will be renewed for another 2 seasons. I only hope when Otto Bathurst and Tom Harper are able to obtain further funding that they don't let it go to their heads. My guess would be they should be able to double if not triple their initial funding, but let's hope they learned their lesson about not needing $65 million to produce a high quality show.
