The Peaky Blinders were a notorious gang in Birmingham during the 1920's era. They wore peaked caps with razor blades stitched inside so they could blind their victims, hence the name.

It's well worth watching.
Some of the Brummy accents are a bit suspect, but a good series all the same.

Yeah it's very good. Bit of an obvious steal from Boardwalk Empire at times but definitely worth watching. Plus it's a British show so we're not talking 20+ episode a season either.

This show just gets better and better. The new episodes are amazing, and the music choices are getting even better too - the Nick Cave tracks were getting a bit samey so it was nice they used a classic Radiohead song last week, and this week we got more Radiohead and even some PJ Harvey! Fantastic stuff, I'm loving it :P> DL 8-) 8-) 8-)

Question for you Lou (spoiler warning for anyone else, so beware........)


Any idea what the hitman at the dinner party shouted out before shooting? I'm assuming he was the Italian who the mafia sent over but he sounded Irish! And he seemed to shout "Hey Joe" or "Hey you" - I listened back several times but can't work it out - dunno if its one of those where we're not meant to know who it is yet??
